How do you look after your wellbeing at work?
August 10, 2022 | by Rebecca Nathan
It’s normal to sometimes feel stress whilst at work. Like our physical health, your mental health is just as important.
Here’s a few simple tips to help focus on your wellbeing in the workplace:
Connect 🗣 – talk to someone instead of emailing them, the interaction can make a difference and offers space for a personable moment. Why not share a journey home with a colleague?
Be active 🚶 – go for a walk at lunchtime and ask someone you work with to join you – so you can connect as well.
Take notice 👀 – remind yourself to ‘take notice’ as this can broaden your awareness. Visit somewhere new for lunch or have a ‘clear the clutter’ day.
Learn 🧠 – setting goals is very effective to help you fulfil your ambitions and has a positive effect on your wellbeing. Why not sign up for a class, research something you’ve always wondered about or find out something new about your colleagues!
Give 🤝- Volunteer for a charity or set up a charity fundraising event with your colleagues. Research suggests that acts of giving and kindness improves your wellbeing.
It’s important employers and their workforce know how to support one another in the workplace and know how to address mental health and wellbeing.
We all need support when it comes to our mental health and our workplace-based training equips you with the knowledge, skills, and resources to spot the early signs someone may be struggling.
