Managing Stress During the Coronavirus

The last few weeks have tested even the calmest among us. If you find that stress and anxiety are impacting you in ways you are unable to handle on your own, we encourage you to seek help from a doctor or a counselor. It is always a good idea to take stock of your stress levels and mitigate as much as possible.  Here are some other ideas and resources to keep in mind:

  1. The OITE is continuing to offer a mix of career and wellness events daily. Check out our “Upcoming Events” to see what will be online soon. If you missed the discussion on “Strategies and Tools for Dealing with Stress During the Coronavirus, you can watch the recording here.  

  2. OITE Wellness Challenge
    Have you done something to enhance your wellness today? These times are filled with uncertainty and stress.
