Improving Wellness: The 5 Health Gauges
We discuss the 5 facets of health – Physical, emotional, relational, spiritual and mental – as fuel gauges. When one of the gauges is low it affects some or all of the other gauges (for example we get sick and we feel low or depressed and don’t want to be around people). I explain what causes these gauges to drop and then we work through the practical changes that we can make to our every day to get back to a healthy version of ourselves – and to increase those gauges. I talk practically about eating the right foods, getting the right exercise, getting enough sleep, managing stress well (a few points from the longer session, changing our thoughts, using self-awareness, choosing good relationships as well as a few more.
Reducing and Managing Stress
Some jobs have a very high stress factor (most jobs in the city would fall into this category). How we deal with stress in our lives is VERY important and this session is all about those coping mechanisms and making sure they are healthy ones. We start by talking about the fact that stress is not the problem but how we see stress – the difference between seeing problems with a challenge response or a threat response. When we constantly see things as a threat our body releases more cortisol. Then we talk about what internal stress is (inflammation – which means more cortisol) and the impact on the body when there is high levels of cortisol (we go through a checklist of symptoms) and how to reduce it ,as when this is high, its harder to manage the external stress. Then we talk through 10 things to do to reduce internal stress and manage external stress well.
Possessing resilience – the ability to bounce back from problems – is something lacking in our society in general so we often give up too easily or fall a part at the first sign of a problem. We need to possess the ability to solve our problems as adults in the world today. When we don’t know how to effectively deal with our problems in the workplace then our work suffers, and it is difficult to get things done. This session explains the importance of resilience as adults and the educates how to build the ability to deal with problems well in and out of the workplace.
Maintaining a Positive Work/Life Balance
It is essential, working within what is a times such a difficult and stressful environment in a corporate setting, to stay balanced in the time we spend with work and the rest of our lives. This session highlights the importance of keeping that balance between work, family health and hobbies, as well as practical points as to how we can maintain this in our lives – which includes managing time, factoring in refreshment time, and a big one is assessing priorities and values (which leads to the point about prioritising health with practical examples).
Understanding and Removing Workplace Bullying
Bullying in the workplace is at an all time high. Unfortunately as a society we have not dealt with bullying in a healthy way so bullies have grown up not knowing any better, and continue to do what they do unaware of the damage they cause. Bullying decreases work productivity and in some cases drives people away from the work that they would otherwise enjoy. This session is structured to give strategies on how to deal with the issue and set up the work environment to be a safe place – so that people can get on with the work they have been paid to do.
