Busy@Home: An essential toolkit for life and work during lockdown
You’ve stockpiled enough baked beans and toilet roll to last for 6 months. Now what do you do? In BUSY@HOME, business psychologist Tony Crabbe, explains that when we aim higher than ‘getting through’, we perform better, enjoy ourselves more and have improved resilience.
A deeply practical guide, based on extensive psychological research, will help you and your family navigate this unsettling and pressurized time. BUSY@HOME also reveals how to use the disruption of our routines, habits and endless busyness as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a reset.
