A core part of our work for the past 20 years has been assisting individual clients with the tools of positive psychology and more recently including guidance for people on their nutritional well-being. The mind and body are self evidently connected. In a recent program, called “ Happy Body At Work “ delivered to people at work at Sydney University by physiotherapists, two thirds of participants had become much more aware of how physical things affected their mood. In our own Guidelight Psychology “ Creating Healthier Workplaces “ program we see significant growth in the self belief and ability of our clients to better cope with the stresses of their home life and workplace demands.
Check out our specialist website www.creatinghealthierworkplaces.com.au for more interesting background information on the power of these programs to positively transform a persons life and enhance business outcomes. A study by Medibank and KPMG estimated that across Australian workplaces, staff showing up to work feeling physically and/or mentally unwell cost our economy an estimated $34.1 billion per year.
Whether as a client on one of our workplace programs or as an individual seeing us privately, please remember that investing in tools to maintain your positive psychological and nutritional health is worth it – both for yourself and for your career.
