Mental Health Awareness - February 2020
Your health, from all ends of the spectrum, is a hollistic view of your own wellbeing, and includes physical, mental, emotional and psychological to name a few. It is important to acknowledge your health beyond the physical signs of what is socially acceptable, or what others perceive of you.
Often in any workplace, your role is determined by the work produced at the end of each day, or how fast you get it done. So it is easy to forget about how to look after your own health and wellbeing. Its vital to take "me time", whether that is excercise in the evenings or just taking a few minutes on your break to relax and re-focus. It is equally important to recognise the signs in others, especially your colleagues. Realistically, we spend more time with work colleagues than we do with our own family and friends, so we get to recognise when someone isn't quite themselves. It is important to address such issues when appropriate, and reassure your colleagues where needed. Always look out for each other.
