Virtual Wellness Workshops

Keeping your team connected during these challenging times

Virtual Wellness Workshops

As social isolation measures are put into place to minimise the spread of COVID-19, many people will find themselves working remotely.

Actively avoiding social contact can make people feel lonely and reduce our sense of belonging. We know that social distancing is an important and essential public health measure, but we also recognise this is likely to negatively impact our mental health. Added to this is our normal reaction to a pandemic – worry, insomnia and stress.

Cohesion, easily achieved in the office, is harder to achieve when your team is working remotely. We have designed virtual wellness workshops to increase the connection within your team and to address the common issues you may experience in the upcoming weeks to months.

Virtual Wellness Seminars:

Mental Health In Uncertain Times

Hoarding, panic buying and constantly checking your news feed are well recognised behaviours during a pandemic. They are also an attempt to regain control during uncertain times. To mitigate the increased risk of developing mental health problems during crisis periods like this, it is absolutely crucial that we put in place strategies to look after our mental health.

This interactive virtual workshop covers:

How to recognise the symptoms of anxiety and depression in yourself and your loved ones
How to maintain physical distancing while increasing social connection
Why it is important to restrict news feeds and social media
Resources for specific mental health problems – websites, videos, books and help lines

Mindfulness – Best Tool to Stay Focused

One of the most difficult aspects about working from home is trying to ignore the distractions. Whether it is your dog wanting a walk, kids wanting entertainment, your spouse wanting company or the dishes that need washing. These constant distractions will make you anxious which can hamper your productivity. Mindfulness is your best tool to help you stay focused if you are working from home.

This interactive virtual workshop covers:

The benefits you can experience from mindfulness
3x guided mindfulness meditations
How to cultivate a regular mindfulness practice at home
Apps to keep you on track

Combating Corona-Stress

Working from home sounds like a dream… Teleconferencing on the couch, sleeping in, working in your PJs. Unfortunately, the reality of remote working is that it can be lonely and stressful. Many parents will be forced to work from home together, juggling the kids who are home from school. So, how can we adjust to these new working environments?

This interactive virtual workshop covers:

Maintain normality: How to keep structure in your day
The importance of routines when working from home
Understand that anxious feelings are normal and appropriate (and when you should get help)
Why you need to substitute your commute time with exercise

Adequate sleep is essential for our immune system to fight viral infections; however, sleep is notoriously difficult when circumstances change, particularly when those changes are stressful.

This interactive virtual workshop covers:

Why monitoring your sleep is important
How you can benefit from daytime naps
Sleep hygiene – how does yours rate?
Step by step approach to tackle insomnia
