With coronavirus concerns weighing on the minds of Hawaii’s workforce, health advocates remind residents to stop and take a breath.
Terri Dietz, President WYAO Hawaii, Corporate Wellness, helps companies nurture happy employees by promoting a culture of health — an approach that’s even more critical when people are concerned about the spread of germs, getting sick and losing income and work hours.
“The money and then that stress and it just creates this kind of spin cycle that you kind of get on that becomes very negative, and then everything starts to shut down,” Dietz said. “Staying mentally healthy, we need to stay connected. So even though you might be working virtually, turn the phone on, where you have the camera so you can at least be face to face.”
