This short series hosted by Head of People, Suzie Ruffley, and Foresight’s leadership coach, Dr Alex Morris, will focus on some of the theories around wellbeing and discusses practical advice on how to actually be well, in the context of the workplace and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our latest episode explores Stress. The past few months have challenged everyone to adapt their daily routines and endure unique and fairly strict conditions, both for work and in their personal lives. Coping with these changes isn’t easy and one in five adults was likely to be experiencing some form of depression during the pandemic. With the news of a further UK lockdown having just been issued at the weekend, there couldn’t be a more apt time to encourage open dialogue around stress.

This episode delves into the importance of stress management and offers some simple yet effective ways to navigate stress in our personal lives and in the workplace.

Some of the key questions that this podcast answers include: 

  • What is stress?
  • What are the impacts of stress, on both our minds and our bodies?
  • How can we notice subtle signs that indicate a person is suffering from stress?
  • What are helpful ways to combat stress?
