Delicious Brains:
Our Struggles to Stay Healthy While Working From Home Part 2
Feb 03, 2017 @ 10:43:18

The Delicious Brains blog has an interesting post, the second part of a series, talking about staying healthy - both mentally and physically - while working from home. In this new article several people share their own ideas, habits and experiences that have helped them keep up while being a part of a remote team.

It’s been just over a year since we posted about our struggles to stay healthy whilst working from home in a remote team. In that time we’ve had two new members join the team, one full company meetup and one regional, one new baby, two engagements and three home moves, so I thought it was about time we give an update on where we are with our health. Ian did promise an update 6 months after the last, but don’t hold it against him.

He post shares thoughts and comments from eight different people, each with their own unique experiences and recommendations (what works for some doesn't for others). Most of the suggestions include recommendations of regular exercise, making mental health a priority and better sleep habits.

May 25, 2016 @ 09:25:26

The Free the Geek podcast hosted by PHP community member Matthew Setter has posted its latest episode. In this new show Matthew talks with Matt Turland about conferences and mental health.

In this episode I wonderful chat with Matthew Turland about what it’s like speaking at conferences and mental health - especially within the IT community.

It’s a chat which I feel privileged to have had, primarily because it can be such a sensitive topic for so many people around the world. Matthew was very kind to open up to me and share with me some of his struggles, and how he’s dealt with them over the years.

He also shared a host of links to some excellent resources, should you or someone you know, be in the same position; links which you can find in the related links section.

/Dev/Hell Podcast:
Episode 74: Raise MentalHealthError
Mar 28, 2016 @ 11:16:01

The /Dev/Hell podcast, hosted by PHP community members Chris Hartjes and Ed Finkler, has posted its latest episode: Episode #74 - Raise MentalHealthError.

In this episode we were extremely lucky to get Kenneth Reitz on the show to discuss his experiences when he had a mental health event that resulted in a stay in the hospital and some major life changes as a result.

Normally we’re a comedy podcast that focusses on technology, but issues surrounding mental health are very important to us. We’re extremely grateful that Kenneth came on and was very open about what happened to him. We hope you enjoy what was a great, open, freewheeling discussion about how the symptoms of some mental illnesses appear beneficial from the outside.

You can listen to this latest episode either through the in-page audio player or by downloading the mp3 directly. If you enjoy the show be sure to subscribe to their feed too and get this and more great shows as they're released.
