How do pandemic wellbeing tips stack up against long term wellbeing models?

Our recent podcast episode Five Ways to Avoid Burnout + Recharging on the Fly explores the positive psychology PERMA model for sustainable wellbeing. In the middle of a global pandemic, it's of course normal for the idea of long term wellbeing to be far from our minds. Interestingly, many specific tips for wellbeing and mental health during the current crisis also align with this long term model of wellbeing, PERMA. We enjoyed mapping a few examples of pandemic wellbeing tips from the incredible resources by Beyond Blue and the World Health Organisation with the PERMA model.  We love the thought that these short term [...]
