This course gives people an insight into the importance of wellbeing at work and provides practical strategies to help improve wellbeing for yourself and your colleagues.
Wellbeing is about taking a positive approach to our health, both mental and physical and taking action to improve it. It is concerned with taking a proactive approach rather than just responding to problems after they occur. A major part of wellbeing at work focuses on managing stress.
People often “stress” about work issues such as looming deadlines, quantity of difficulty of work and expectations that we set for ourselves or others. We can manage and improve many aspects of our work but there are some factors which are outside of our control such as the passing of time, our limited capacity and the expectations of other people. What we can control is our response to these things. Managing stress involves setting realistic expectations, putting in your best effort and being realistic about the outcome regardless of whether it met your initial expectations. This can have a positive impact on both emotional and physical factors of stress. Managing your stress is a skill which can be used in both your personal and professional lives.
