Let’s be honest. Many of us are feeling pretty irritable right now. COVID-19 has totally redefined what job stress looks like. We’re under immense pressure to pay bills, juggle childcare responsibilities, find new work, and keep our businesses afloat – and this stress just leaves us feeling angry. And rightly so!
Why do I say that? Because anger is a normal response to having our hopes frustrated and our power taken away. There is nothing wrong with feeling that way. It’s what you do with it that matters most.
So I’ve created a video for all of us, because we are all hurting right now. This video (link above) is just as much for me as it may be for you. It’s a video about how we can harness anger as a force for good in our relationships – ultimately so that we can stay well-connected to our loved ones, our work colleagues, and (of course) ourselves.
