Editor's Note: The Leibniz Network conducted a series of webinars to help researchers manage their mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic. This video was originally published as part of this series and has been republished here with permission. The original video can be accessed here.
This is a continuation of the previous segment in which Dr. Nicola Byrom (Lecturer in Psychology at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology, and Neurosciences at Kings College London) encourage researchers to have realistic expectations of themselves when dealing with their mental health during a pandemic. She talks about how this time can be utilized to think more about life, what they expect from it, and what their aspirations are. She also provides resources that can help researchers get started with improving their well-being.
