Spring 2024 newsletter includes a movement tip & other resources

To continue the theme of this year's Mental Health Awareness week, the Spring edition of our quarterly newsletter has a movement tip as well as many other articles and resources to help workplace wellbeing.

This year continues apace and it's hard to believe that when this latest edition of our
e-newsletter was sent out to our subscribers we were nearing the end of 2024's Mental Health Awareness Week. In this edition's tip we provide some suggestions to incorporate into our working day to encourage us to continue with this year's theme of movement and moving more for our mental health.

As ever, thanks for having a look at our newsletter and we hope you'll find some of the wellbeing ideas, advice and resources that we've collated helpful.

3 interesting workplace wellbeing articles from around the web

  1. How employers can help prevent suicide
    A powerful article written from the heart by the founder of the charity Baton of Hope. The charity believes that the Workplace Pledge they launched at their conference on 16 May is the most comprehensive programme to date to help employers play their part in our collective responsibility to save lives through suicide prevention.
  2. Not just good for the soul
    This mind and mood article from Harvard Medical School looks at how a recent study has built on earlier studies identifying the benefits forgiveness, including self-forgiveness, can have on our brains and bodies. The authors also suggest some strategies for those looking to incorporate the skills of forgiveness into their lives.
  3. One third experience discrimination from managers
    This article digests research released in March by Mental Health First Aid England for their My Whole Self Day. Their survey found that 31% of respondents had experienced some form of microaggression or discrimination from their manager in the past 6 months and specifies the most common negative and exclusionary behaviours experienced.

“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life, not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”

Khalil Gibran

 

 

Until next time ...

How could we resist finishing with an article beginning 'Happily ever after'?

A full moon in a hazy blue sky over a hill with dry trees

With long lives and reported feelings of happiness and mental vitality, looking at the lifestyle of those living in the world’s Blue Zones has been getting a fair bit of coverage lately ... and when you learn that they don’t eradicate coffee, alcohol or exist on a lettuce leaf diet why wouldn’t you want to find out more?
You can find 'Happily Ever After: A Glimpse Into the Blue Zones' here
