As the new year approaches, we all naturally start to look into our physical and mental wellbeing goals for the year ahead.
In this month’s newsletter, we include some information on upcoming wellbeing dates, as well as outlining some of Health@Work’s resources that can help you look after the health and wellbeing of your workforce throughout 2023.
Upcoming Wellbeing Days
Dry January is a great chance to encourage staff to have a break from alcohol after the festive period and create healthier habits. The best way to take part is by using the Try Dry app which helps users keep track of their units, calories and money saved and let them earn badges along the way. You can find resources from Alcohol Change UK to promote the campaign with your staff here.
Brew Monday is a campaign run by the Samaritans to start a conversation about mental health over a brew. Having a good chat over a cuppa, can often help us feel better, so why not host a Brew Monday with your team? The Samaritans have put together some resources you can use to promote the event here.
This is also a great opportunity to look into how you’re supporting your staff’s mental health. Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) are a low-cost employee benefit that helps you to support the mental wellbeing of your whole workforce. In addition, Health@Work also offers Mental Health First Aider Training as well as a Mental Wellbeing For Employees course.
