Workplace Wellness

Employees leave bosses more than jobs.

Workplace stress for some people is caused when they become frustrated, distracted and disengaged with managers and co-workers.

Workplace wellness includes more than just physical health (e.g. exercise and diet), ergonomic furniture, low levels of overtime and regular holidays.

Prolonged under-stress (boredom), which usually results from workers having little to do and can be associated with rigid job demarcation, especially in the Public Service, can be as dangerous to the health of an individual as chronic over-stress or dis-stress.

World-renowned stem cell biologist and epigenetics researcher Bruce Lipton PhD said, “In the science of epigenetics it’s been found that it’s the perception of your environment that controls your genes. You’re not a victim of your genes because you’re the one who can change your environment—or, more importantly, change your perception. The physical expression is the consequence of the mind’s program—the program comes first, the physical expression second. The function of the mind is to create coherence between your beliefs and your reality.”

Introducing a balanced wellness program into a workplace must include definitive tools that nurture mental health and emotional well-being and the best way is by strengthening relationships and connections.

The UK’s National Health Service states on their website under Connect for Mental Wellbeing… “Evidence shows that good relationships – with family, friends and our wider communities – are important for our mental wellbeing. Mental wellbeing means feeling good – about ourselves and the world around us – and functioning well.Building stronger, wider social connections can help us feel happier and more secure, and give us a greater sense of purpose.”

As stress is a perception it is important that we have tools and strategies at the ready, so we can action the most appropriate ones to protect us, so we bounce back and ‘roll with the punches’ and experience no ill effects. These simple, sustainable, selfcare tools and strategies are learned and practiced, and enable us to live the calm even in stressful times.

As well as having good relationships with family and friends, a key to experiencing workplace wellness is to create special relationships with our fellow work mates, our suppliers, our clients or customers and folk we touch base with on the bus, train or ferry each day as we commute.

As William Johnsen said… “If it’s to be, it’s up to me.”
