LinkedIn Provides 6 Stress-Free Courses to Help People Amid the COVID-19 Outbreak

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, every social media platform is looking forward to providing the best it can to help people, whether by providing tips, tools or even courses to help everyone starting from remote workers or even students.
In light of that, LinkedIn has announced last month that it would be making a range of LinkedIn learning courses and they will be available for everyone for free.

This week, LinkedIn has outlined six free courses that can provide mindfulness and mental health guidance for those who work to adjust their new life/work balance.

LinkedIn says: “Over the past month, three-times as many people watched mindfulness and stress management courses on LinkedIn Learning than the previous month. Why? Well, we think it’s safe to assume that people are looking for ways to navigate this new normal. The boundaries between work and personal are more blurred than ever. The entire family is home at all times, our friends and coworkers are physically distanced, and the places we go to fill up and recharge (aka favorite coffee shop, fitness class, place of worship, etc) are closed. And arguably most challenging of all, we’re not sure how long this will last.”

The psychological impact of the COVID-19 lockdown cannot be neglected anyway, missing out on your normal life for a while as well as being locked down because of a virus that spreads rapidly all over the globe can cause you anxiety and a lot of psychological impacts you might not notice.
It is better to consider checking out these courses, in this phase everyone would like the best help we can get.
