During the pandemic many people have shifted gears as to where they work, how they get to work and how they connect. With many people now working from home, time previously held for the morning commute has been reduced to the distance between your bed and your laptop. What impact does this transition have on our experience and wellbeing? Join us for an interactive workshop where we explore this shift and opportunities to reroute and promote balance within work and wellness.
