Working From Home

Working from home does have perks that some of us enjoy (bye bye commute!), but for many among us, changes like these have been challenging too. 

Feeling stress, lack of motivation, anxiety and uncertainty is completely normal. Alongside this, many of us might be worried about future job prospects or the best way to juggle work with our personal and family life. 

These simple tips can help you feel more productive and motivated, and take care of your mental health while working from home. 

Here you can find factsheets, tips and information, apps, organisation and services related to mental health difficulties associated with working from home and changes in routine.
