If we are not careful, the overload of daily tasks can build up to a point where we feel unable to breathe or move. Every person in an organization has a responsibility to enhance wellbeing for employees, clients, and the company itself. How can we begin to develop an awareness of our organizations AND ourselves to better understand when we are on a path to thrive or a path to burnout?
What can leaders do?
Go deeper with wellbeing in your organization than optional healthy-day activities and ensure that your company culture naturally addresses the inseparable connection of productivity and wellness.
What can employees do?
Set self-caring commitments and do not break them. Do not let distractors, clowns or vampires lead you astray to mental, emotional or physical endeavors that do not serve you well.
Here’s how to do it:
- Get away from technology while you eat.
- Move for at least 5 minutes every hour.
- Take at least 1 minute each hour to pay attention to your breath and heartbeat.
- Become aware of the ability to focus and priorities rather than multitask.
- Be clear on what brings you meaning and how you embrace that joy.
