At Grokker, we always talk about improving people’s lives — and the COVID-19 (also known as Coronavirus) outbreak is the opportunity to get out there and make an impact on an unprecedented scale. The global pandemic is touching the lives, in some way or another, of literally everyone around the world. It’s a health crisis that will continue to disrupt our daily lives for as long as it takes to contain the novel virus.
As we grapple with this new reality — even if it’s a temporary reality — it’s more important than ever to prioritize our physical and emotional wellbeing. We ALL need access to digital support to help us feel our best during this challenging time. That’s why Grokker is offering our video wellbeing solution free through April 30, May 31, 2020 to individuals and organizations.
Managing Stress During the Outbreak
We can’t underestimate the impact of this "new reality" on our stress levels — and the importance of taking daily preventive measures to help keep us calm and focused.
Shuttered offices, travel restrictions, and closed schools and community centers are keeping people close to home — or, increasingly, at home — as a way to mitigate the spread and contraction of the virus. Not only does the social distancing put us at increased risk of experiencing extreme stress and isolation, we’re receiving a near-constant barrage of information from traditional and social media, community organizations, businesses we support, employers, neighbors, friends, and family members. Processing this information is overwhelming, to say the least, and it’s compounding our feelings of uncertainty and anxiety.

- Stress reduction, mental health, and sleep programs — to help people cope better and address the anxiety they may be experiencing
