Supporting Home Workers
With more staff working from home than ever before, it is important to help their resilience and wellbeing. For some working from home can increase a sense of loneliness, anxiety and burnout. A recent study from Nuffield Health (June 2020) found that 80% of workers say their mental health has been impacted by working from home. Learning to make better use of our time can improve our mental health and wellbeing. The Health and Safety Executive recommend 5-10 minute screen breaks every 50 minutes. Research suggest we can only be attentive for 45 minutes at a time before it starts to become distracted.
Mindfulness can improve wellbeing when practiced regularly. It can be part of your health and wellbeing strategy, helping employees to improve a sense of happiness, purpose and satisfaction as well as reduce anxiety. The effects of training can be measured and reported, contributing to culture and wellbeing conversations.
