Also, try giving a whole day off to your employees— which means an entire day without online meetings, huddles, or email notifications. This would give the team time to focus on themselves and have a day of pampering and self-care.

The following day, you can discuss what everyone did and reflect on how relaxed the day was. After all, reflection is a form of self-care!

Trust us on this one, having a mental health week would make your team ten times more efficient and relaxed as well.
