Over the past twelve months we have had to adapt our lives to accommodate the ever-changing world we have found ourselves living in due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of us have had to cope with a changing work situation, whether that has been working from home, increased pressure due to a change in working conditions or being furloughed. The world we now work in has changed beyond all recognition and the uncertainty this has caused has led to higher anxiety levels and has had a severe impact on the mental health of many.
The Really Resilient Guide offers readers a supportive and reassuring way to help them to adapt the the ever changing working environment, it gives out some helpful and handy tips that can help you too readjust to your new working conditions. Andry also shares plenty of techniques you can put in to practice that will help you to cope in stressful working situations.
I really liked the layout of the book, it looks at various obstacles and offers, in a reader friendly manner, solutions, tips and techniques that you can try and teach yourself as and when you need them. It is a book that you can either sit down and read cover to cover, or, dip in and out of as and when you feel the need. It is easy to navigate, user friendly and reassuring, it is like having that comforting voice that you can call on when you feel that little extra help. If, like me, you have been in your current role for many years and need to have a fresh approach to your job then this book can guide you through the process of getting to a place in which you feel happy and content. Alternatively, if you are about to embark on a new role and you would to refresh your outlook to work then again this can help.
