4. Keeping up with hobbies. Apart from the day-to-day requirements of living life, make sure that your employees are setting aside time outside of the workplace to pursue their dreams, goals, and hopes. Everyone needs to have hobbies that they love and activities that breathe life into who they are, even if these aren’t work-related, everyone deserves the time to have fun.
5. Rest effectively. Rest is essential to our bodies, as much as food and water and air. Our bodies need to be refreshed on a daily and weekly basis. Making sure that your employees have time to get adequate rest day-to-day, and taking their annual leave is so important to keeping mental health stable and thriving. Not to mention, rest is vital for effective work to be done too. Overworking staff never pays off.
6. Nourishing the soul. Our lives are more than flesh and blood. They are also the mind, heart and soul. But time is needed to make sure employees and employers are able to feel the present and nurture themselves.
7. Reset those batteries. Tomorrow is another day with great potential and opportunity. Everyone knows that if there’s ever a ‘bad’ day at work that the slate needs to be wiped clean to avoid feeling distressed later in the week. Make sure that any possible tension is left in the past so that everyone feels refreshed and the office is a sanctuary not somewhere where people feel anxiety.
