6 Mindfulness Resources to Help You Adapt to the ‘New Normal’

Over the past month, three-times as many people watched mindfulness and stress management courses on LinkedIn Learning than the previous month.

Why? Well, we think it’s safe to assume that people are looking for ways to navigate this  new normal.

 It’s tough. The boundaries between work and personal are more blurred than ever. The entire family is home at all times, our friends and coworkers are physically distanced, and the places we go to fill up and recharge (aka favorite coffee shop, fitness class, place of worship, etc) are closed. And arguably most challenging of all, we’re not sure how long this will last. 

To help professionals get the support they need, we’re sharing these six free courses through June 30 on mindfulness and stress management to help you build up your self-care toolbox—global pandemic or not. Experts will help you learn how to: 

  • Cultivate mindfulness practices to increase focus, remain grounded in change and ambiguity, and manage emotional triggers

  • Understand the impact of a mindful physical workspace and how to create one

  • Manage stress and get 'unstuck' when you’re overwhelmed

  • Build up your energy reserves so you can show up the way you want to with colleagues and loved ones
