don't let work kill you
Have you ever jokingly said “Work is killing me”. But the problem is that it’s no joke. There's no denying that we live fast-paced lives juggling home and work demands and responsibilities. For many people, stress is so commonplace that it has become a way of life. A little stress isn't a bad thing, it can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best. But when you’re constantly running in emergency mode, your mind and body pay the price. Work stress doesn’t just cause psychological problems like depression, anxiety and irritability. Work stress causes physical problems like heart palpitations, fatigue, indigestion, insomnia and more.
health and wellbeing is a foundation of a great place to work
Health and wellbeing have always been close to my heart. But it’s not about me because great bosses know that health and wellbeing are an essential part of great places to work. Firstly, great bosses truly care about their employees. But secondly great bosses know that both they and their employees are more productive when they are mentally and physically healthy. This is why Wellbeing is one of the Manager Foundation cornerstones. Because I believe so strongly in wellbeing I’ve created a free stress management guide for you to download.
