For most working moms, the pandemic has caused their personal and professional worlds to collide in ways they could have never imagined. Working women have suddenly had to take on the role of home-school teacher while ducking out for team Zoom calls and holding down their work obligations all at the same time. They’re dealing with emotional and physical burnout, and for the unfortunate women who have experienced a layoff or a spouse’s layoff, managing a household budget with fewer financial resources is wearing them thin. PLAYing can help Women win in life and business, especially as we enter this Pandemic Winter.
The Inaugural International Womens' Day of PLAY was hosted by She PLAYS on October 10, 2020, which also happened to be World Mental Health Day. 100 Women from around the US + Canada, Mexico and Australia met virtually to discuss strategies and tools to reduce stress in these tough times and just have some old fashion fun.
We spoke to Tiffany Gratton-McDuffie about how finding time for play can help women overcome stress and thrive during the pandemic.
