Work from home anxiety

We hear about work-life balance all the time. But what exactly is it? In these unprecedented times, our jobs are at stake, we are overworking, have no work-life balance and everything is really overwhelming. For students, here's exam stress, missing friends, no campus life and no idea about the future. But it's not at all unusual for certain major events to make you nervous or feel temporary moments of anxiety. We tell ourselves that on a few days, but some days we recognise we need help in navigating all of these challenges at work, at college, with work-from-home becoming a reality. It's scary, confusing and the future looks hazy; but you're not alone in this. Upon repeated request facilitators put together this interactive peer led support session for all the people trying to find a work life or school life balance. We put together a lot of insights we derived while we ourselves went through the pandemic, and included tools and resources on how to make the transition easier, re-build social relationships virtually and find peace in the confines of where we've had to stay. Join the safe space to rant, complain, share and learn how to navigate these new challenges healthily and with care

  • Gaurav
    Going through a mental health challenge can make you feel isolated and afraid, among many other things. I remember feeling this way when I was in a difficult place, and that's when I signed up for a buddy circle at HiO. Although I was scared at first, that changed to relief and a sense of hope. The buddy circle reminded me that I'm not completely alone in my journey; help and company is always an arm's reach away :')
  • Nandini
    Buddy Circle serves exactly what it promises! I remember being a little nervous about my first session, but as you see people open up one by one and you relate with other's struggles, it feels like you're a part of a community, and you can really understand each other. What I liked about the buddy circle was that it always provides us with a learning strategy, something to take back and implement in your everyday life.
