National Workplace Wellbeing Day was on Friday, 31st March 2017. Wellbeing isn’t just about exercise and nutrition. It’s also about how we care for our mental health. We spend a lot of time at work, so it’s important to mind our mind at work. Watching how we think at work can improve the time spent there.
Workloads, workplace relations, or office politics can take its toll on mental health. Often people who come to me for Indian Head Massage or Reiki are trying to manage the stress of the workplace. Preventative care, or minding ourselves while we’re healthy, is a something that needs to be practiced more often. There are some steps we can take personally to mind our mental health at work.
1. Take personal responsibility for your work-life balance. Speak up when work expectations and demands are too much so employers can address them.
2. Take proper lunch and tea, trying to get out of the workplace if possible.
3. Try to draw a line between work and home. If you do need to bring work home, try to keep your work in a certain area of your home where you can close the door on it.
4. Develop protective strategies against poor mental health due to work such as exercise, regular therapies, walks, leisure activities and friendships.

Holistic therapies do not replace the need for medical attention. Holistic therapists do not diagnose medical problems or manipulate bones. Always tell me if you have a medical problem, even a minor one. There are certain situations in which caution should be taken when receiving massage and bodywork.
