One of the biggest pressure points is where most of us spend at least 35 hours of every week. That should come as no surprise, but the scale of the problem will.
Around 140 million working days are lost in the UK every year due to sickness, with 300,000 employees quitting due to ill health.
And we’re not just talking about the odd bout of flu. Of the seven days a year that the average worker takes off sick, 40 per cent are due to mental health problems. This equates to a cost of around £8.4 billion a year. Clearly, many employees are at breaking point. If they are to meet their true potential, the workplace needs to adapt.
At The Spring Glow we take a very holistic approach to health.
STRESS MANAGEMENT IS JUST ONE STEP ON THE WAY TO PEAK PERFORMANCE.
THREE KEY SOLUTIONS:
Oxford Mindfulness Centre acknowledges “the promise of mindfulness interventions in enhancing wellbeing and human capital”. This practice allows employees to feel more calm and focused in high-pressure situations and thus make better decisions. They begin to feel more present, can better empathise with their colleagues and together find solutions to problems.
Food can really affect our day-to-day productivity. A study by the British Journal of Health Psychology revealed that the more fruits and vegetables people consume (up to seven portions), the happier, more engaged and more creative they tend to be. During one of our in-house clinics we offer employees a wellness review, dietary analysis and life coaching advice to get them firing on all cylinders.
HEALTHIER, HAPPIER STAFF, MEANS A MORE PRODUCTIVE WORKFORCE.
