Denise caught up with NZIWR colleague and wellbeing facilitator Adrienne Buckingham and discussed coping strategies during the COVID-19 lockdown. Listen to their discussion on accepting and working with productivity swings, why it’s still important to lower our expectations of ourselves and others, and some tips for working as effectively as you can in these circumstances. They also shared strategies being used by solo parents to cope during lockdown and why it’s still helpful to extend a hand even after this is over.
