Wellbeing Resources

Supporting the wellbeing of our meeting and event planner community.

Resources


  • Focus on mental health. It’s OK to feel sad, stressed, confused, scared or angry during a crisis. Talking to people you trust can help. Contact your friends, family and your planner.
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle. This includes eating a healthy diet, getting adequate sleep, exercising and maintaining social contacts with loved ones by email and phone.
  • Avoid tobacco, alcohol or other drugs to deal with your emotions. If you feel overwhelmed, talk to a health worker or counselor. Have a plan, know where to go and how to seek help for physical and mental health needs, if required.
  • Get the facts. Gather information that will help you accurately determine your risk so that you can take reasonable precautions, but avoid panicking. Find credible sources of information you can trust such as WHO, CDC, and your local or state public health agencies.
  • Reduce worry and stress by lessening the time you and your family spend watching or listening to media coverage that you perceive as upsetting.
  • Draw on skills you have used in the past that helped you to manage previous adversities and use those skills to help you manage your emotions during this challenging time.
  • Keep to regular routines and schedules as much as possible, or help create new and healthy ones in new environments.
  • Work with your children. Children may respond to stress in different ways such as being more clingy, anxious, withdrawing, angry or agitated. Respond to your child’s reactions in a supportive way, listen to their concerns and give them extra love and attention.
