Leading Edge: 30 minutes to stay sane

In this episode, Professor David Pendleton outlines steps we can all take to improve our physical and psychological wellbeing during lockdown and beyond. How do you stay positive in the face of uncertainty? Can a crisis become an opportunity?

Listen to Davidโ€™s episode to hear him discuss these topics:

  • The pre-conditions your brain needs to enter ‘non-defensive, creative, clear-thinking mode’
  • Simple things you can do to improve your (and your team’s) wellbeing
  • How to keep a routine going, especially when the boundaries between home and work have blurred

โ€œPeople seem to do best if they’ve got an element of routine. It allows them to pace themselves through the day. It turns out, for example, that we sleep better if we go to bed and get up in the morning at roughly the same time each day. It turns out also that other elements of routine can help us through the day as well.โ€
