Wellness Action Plan (WAP) for Working from Home

The charity Mind have added a new Wellness Action Plan specifically for those Working from Home.  

Suitable for anyone, a Wellness Actions Plan (WAP) is an easy, practical way of helping us to support our own mental health at work and it also helps anyone in a management role to support the mental health of their team members. 

Going through the process of completing this useful document gives home workers the opportunity to reflect on what keeps them well and identify what can impact on personal wellbeing during the pandemic.  This is particularly important in the current climate, where the support which might normally be accessed at work is harder to access.  The current pandemic is affecting everyone in different ways, working from home can be a completely different experience depending on many factors and the WAP is a great way for you to build your own personalised wellbeing plan.

Like anything of this kind, the WAP is most useful if used proactively.  For example, are there things that your manager might be able to put in place to help you feel supported before a problem arises?  If reviewed regularly, the WAP may help you to understand your triggers, reflect on the causes of stress and mental health and make sure you can take practical steps to help you adapt to your new working environment. 

The process can also help managers to open up an important conversation, enabling them to understand your needs and experiences and ultimately better support wellbeing and mental health.
