The word ‘busy’ is frequently used to describe our lives and the amount we have going on. But are you also overwhelmed?
When another job gets added to the to do list, is another weight added to your shoulders leaving you feeling heavier and more burdened with life than ever before?
It’s not surprising that after 18 months of a global pandemic, almost everyone has ‘hit the wall’ at least once since lockdowns against the coronavirus began. With home-schooling, financial stress, the pressure of work or not, social isolation and the emotional rollercoaster that comes with it all, feeling busy can easily turn to feeling burnt out.
In 2019 the World Health Organisations classified burnout as “an occupational phenomenon” that results from “chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed”. What is occurring now is more than just work related, but the result is the same and people suffer equally.
In April 2020 a survey of 17,000 people, just one month into lockdown, found that mental health had already deteriorated considerably compared to before the pandemic.
The concern of a mental health wave is very much upon us.
At The Natural Balance (TNB) we believe health is wealth. Not only is it important to look after your health and wellbeing in the home but workplace too. Over the last decade, wellbeing in the workplace has risen up the priority list but there’s still a way to go to ensure everyone is equally supported and has access to what they need.
Together, at TNB clinic, the team have already supported over 30 different businesses to align their employee initiatives with healthy practices. From wellbeing workshops to yoga sessions, breath work breaks and meditation, employees are benefiting from insightful knowledge and expertise around how they can improve their health and wellbeing. All with the support from their employer.
Health employees are happy and productive employees. It is in the interest of businesses to embed health and wellbeing initiatives into their work.
