Managing Your Anxiety in the Pandemic
Date: Thursday March 18, 2021
Time: 7:00PM EST
Are You Constantly Trying to Manage Your Anxiety in the Pandemic?… You are Not Alone!
Looking back at 2020, who would have thought? For millions of people, the pandemic has increased their anxiety in multiple areas of their lives. Some who would typically experience the once in a blue moon feeling of anxiety are now starting to feel like it is more of the norm. Then for others who could not have imagined their higher levels of anxiety getting any worse have also experienced an increase. But there’s still hope!
Often, feelings of uncertainty and fear of the unknown cause us to be on high alert. This is where anxiety often comes in! Creating a sense of normalcy can help. As we begin to identify the various ways that anxiety can show up and what to do about it, it’s important to remember that our needs are also constantly changing. The hope is that you will find these tips useful and seek resources to manage your anxiety.
Reality Check: Anxiety is a normal feeling. However, like anything else, there has to be a balance. Heightened anxiety that has not been properly addressed can be harmful to our mental health. If this is the case, it is important to seek professional support from a licensed mental health provider. Not everyone who has experienced some form of anxiety requires a mental diagnosis.
Anxiety can be a helpful way to make you aware of your triggers. When anxiety starts to kick in, it is like our internal alarm system has gone off; it wakes us up, it’s constantly trying to get our attention. Why did it alarm go off? What should you do? We all have different triggers caused by people, events, or situations that we cannot always avoid but can make adjustments to live a life that allows us to show up as our most authentic selves and feel good about it.

The Importance of Mental Health in Leadership
Thursday January 21 @ 7PM EST
One of the largest struggles that leaders and entrepreneurs find is that they have taken all the business courses, they know how to make the numbers, they have the drive to make an impact, and have the ambition to get goals met – but just knowing all of that isn’t enough.
Research finds that the events of 2020 led to the start of a ‘Mental Health Crisis’ and respondents to a survey said that the biggest way their emotional burnout showed up was in the workplace. That means that mental health will inevitably present in your team and as a leader, you must know how to manage mental health to the highest levels so that you can get the optimal results. Studies also find that employee satisfaction and performance rate are linked to the mental health and wellness of the employees.
Being a leader requires interacting with people, making a meaningful impact to your team that they want to be a part of your organization. Your job isn’t only to run the business but to lead your team so that they feel motivated, understood, and enjoy coming to work. It’s not only about creating the team that gets goals met but the team that feels they matter – that their well-being matters. Especially as we go into 2021, after a year of extreme stress and burnout – it is critical as leaders to know how to support mental health and create a healthy environment for those you lead.
Join Dr. Victoria Rodriguez, Leadership Consultant, Business Strategist, and Psychotherapist in a FREE information-packed webinar about how to create a work environment that will not only that will foster your employee’s mental health – but yours as well. Dr. Rodriguez has advised numerous leaders to create a healthy work environment with happy employees who perform well, meet goals, and feel valued and part of a meaningful organization.
