In this Expert Insight Interview, Roseann Capanna-Hodge discusses how to manage the stress and mental strain of working from home, as an individual, but also as a parent and spouse. Dr. Roseann Capanna-Hodge is a trailblazing psychologist with almost 30 years of experience. She is a pediatric mental health expert and the founder and director of the Global Institute of Children’s Mental Health.

This Expert Insight Interview discusses:

  • The challenges of isolation and working from home
  • The power of structure and routine
  • The differences between stress and anxiety

Challenges of the Pandemic

Working from home and adjusting to a whole new virtual business experience can be quite stressful, especially if you have kids and your environment isn’t set up for it. Since this pandemic has started, many people have been forced into this exact position, many of them entirely unprepared.

From a mental health point of view, this has presented many challenges. Dr. Roseann believes that we were at a high-stress point even before the pandemic, and the isolation served as an exacerbator of the already difficult situation.

Having a Routine

We crave routine and structure. Predictability frees our brain from overthinking and continuously working on planning various scenarios, which allows us to achieve at a higher level. This is most apparent in kids. Your kids are stressed out mainly because they are missing their structure and daily routine.

One of the primary mental blocks to developing a routine nowadays is the fact that this is a temporary situation. We are not working on structuring our lives because we expect things to go back to “business as usual” any day now. The hard reality is that we don’t know what the future holds, and the more we delay creating a routine, the more stressful we become.

Stress vs. Anxiety

Many people think stress and anxiety are the same, but there’s a clear difference. Dr. Capanna-Hodge explains that stress is a reaction to something that our body perceives as a stressor. Our body doesn’t know the difference between good and bad stress, so to your body, almost getting in a car accident is the same as witnessing the birth of your child.

Anxiety, on the other hand, happens when something interferes with your daily life. It can result from long-term stress, but it is a distinct physiological process.
