Running your own business comes with huge responsibilities and challenges, so it can be easy to forget to take the time to look after your health and wellbeing. We’ve curated resources, downloads, and top tips from experts to help you get started with workplace wellbeing. Whether it’s finding time between meetings with clients to get active, or sharing mental health resources with your team, you’ll discover accessible ways to prioritise wellbeing.
Getting started with workplace wellness
Making time to focus on the wellbeing of yourself and your team has many benefits for your business. From learning a new skill to connecting with others, Sport England, ukactive and Mind share five simple ways to wellbeing.
Individuals who report a greater interest in helping others are more likely to rate themselves as happy. Research into promoting happiness has shown that committing an act of kindness once a week over a six-week period is associated with increased wellbeing. Volunteering is a rewarding way to give back to your community.
Reminding yourself to ‘take notice’ can strengthen and broaden awareness. Studies have shown that being aware of what is taking place in the present directly enhances your wellbeing and savouring ‘the moment’ can help to reaffirm your life priorities.
