LifeWorks Features for September: Coping with Worries and Building Resilience

LifeWorks, Illinois Tech’s Employee Assistance Program, offers a new work-life balance highlight each month. This month’s feature is coping with worries and building resilience. There’s also a special feature for managers on building resilience.

Global polls show that people’s top worries are about money, work, safety, and health. Whatever your worries, you can learn to build your resilience, a set of skills that will help you cope well with life’s daily hassles, as well as handle bigger concerns and challenges.
See the Coping with Worries and Building Resilience feature now through Sunday, September 30 under Featured Articles for helpful tips on how to thrive through change, practice positivity, manage worries, raise resilient children, and build your emotional resilience. Managers can refer to resources geared toward them, available during the same timeframe.

Finally, did you know that Lifeworks offers a Life Coaching service? If you’re feeling motivated about moving forward with a life goal but don’t know where to start in order to achieve it, give LifeWorks a try.

Remember that for these or any other work-life balance issues you may be experiencing, you can contact LifeWorks anytime for confidential support, 24/7.
