Now that lockdown is easing, returning to work is in sight. We will all be spending a lot of time with our colleagues each week. Whether working together in the office or over zoom and email from home, we still rely on our colleagues to work together and get the job done. It can be frustrating when some aren't as easy to work with as others.

Plenty of people find that work is good for their mental health. A job can help protect your mental health by providing a source of income, sense of identity, contact and friendship with others, a steady routine and structure, as well as opportunities to contribute and gain skills.
A key way to look after your well being is to ensure you have a healthy work life balance.
