What a year we have all been through, honestly if you had asked me about a Pandemic a few years ago i would have responded ” Not in my lifetime “.
It seems only yesterday i was on stage with some colleagues talking around mental health, some personal stories and then a Q&A session with Joe Baguley joining myself and Craig on Stage.
Conference’s this year have either been cancelled or gone to a pure virtual event, the UK vMUG moved to a virtual event – which i was really pleased about.
I was asked if i would record a 10 minute lightening session on Mental Health in the Pandemic to be shown on Tuesday 24th November ( day of the conference ) just before the closing keynote..
Honestly i prefer to stand on stage than either present virtually or record a session, but hey thats my personal preference. We did repeat the session we presented last year at the London vMUG back in April virtually which got feedback and quite a few people attending on the day.
Anyway instead of repeating what was presented last year and earlier this year, plus only having 10 minutes i did something slightly different. The whole aim of the session was around trying to be more healthy, make use of the extra time we have in getting some type of new hobby. One of the key points was trying to avoid anything IT related and try something ” NEW “.
In case you missed the 10 minute lightening session here it is you watch at your lesiure. It goes without saying if you have any questions, need some advice around mental health please reach out to me on twitter @bonkeydave
