Time To Stay Well In 2018

One in four of us experience some kind of mental health problem each year. Therefore, it’s a wonder why there continues to be such a stigma attached to talking about it, particularly in the workplace.

For some of you reading this blog you may be applying for work and living with a mental health problem. You are not alone.

At least one in six workers is experiencing common mental health problems, including anxiety and depression. Some employers take mental health at work very seriously – you may want to check if a potential employer has signed the Mindful Employer Charter. As an employer, it means they recognise that many people with mental health problems will have experienced discrimination. You can read more about their aims here. You can also access some great resources to help you manage your mental health at work here.

If you’re going for job interviews, it is worth noting that generally, employers can’t ask you questions about your mental health before a job offer is made. There is more information about this here.

Wellbeing at work is everyone’s responsibility. It’s a good idea to think about how you could look after your wellbeing more. 

What do you need right now to help you feel really well?

How can I be well and pursue a balanced life?

What new leaf do I want to turn over in 2018?

There is no natural recipe for wellbeing – you need to find a way that works for you. Finding ways to a better wellbeing will help you to manage your life in different ways. We all want to feel well, energised and alive and spread our unique sparkle everywhere. The truth is life is really busy and sometimes the focus on ourselves comes last. Our wellbeing however needs to come first, because without it we will struggle. So move yourself up your own priority list and let 2018 be both work, wellbeing and play for you.
