As July and Corporate Wellness month comes to an end, here are the last ways to create mindfulness and manage stress in the workplace.

How Does it Feel to be in Another’s shoes?

You are probably familiar with the saying, “to stand in someone else’s shoes,” when a situation arises. Empathy plays a role in allowing us to understand the minds of others and to resonate emotionally with those states. Practicing mindfulness in the workplace enables us to feel empathy for others. We don’t all think or feel the same way, others may be going through some personal problems, serious health issues and just need support, thinking before we speak or react can make a big difference in others and your life. Be supportive of new ideas and encourage creativity.

Moods are Contagious

Keeping your moods in check – your good feelings can rub off on those around you. Spend a few minutes remembering and visualizing a time when you were really enjoying yourself. It could be because of something you were doing, someplace you were visiting or someone you were with. Savor the memory. Try to keep that feeling at the top of your mind as often as possible throughout your day.

Finding Meaning & Purpose in What We Do

Lastly, remind yourself and others why your jobs are important. The thing about their purpose and how they add value to your organization, and to your customer/clients/students/patients. Sometimes your “customer” is not the end-user of your organization’s services or products but could be an internal person who relies on what you do so that they can get their job done.

Remember, it is not uncommon for mindfulness to take a turn when things are hectic. Next time you’re feeling overwhelmed remember these best practices to help clear your mind.

In terms of managing stress in the workplace:

Start a Hobby, Do Something Different

For a balanced lifestyle, play is as important as work. Leisure activities and hobbies can be very enjoyable and inspiring, and they can offer an added sense of accomplishment to our lives.
For new hobbies, browse through a bookstore or a crafts store, surf the internet, look up local organizations, see what classes or courses are available in your community or from a nearby college or university.
Don’t BE TOO quick TO dismiss new opportunities.

Slow Down

Know your limits and cut down on the number of things you try to do each day, particularly if you do not have enough time for them or for yourself.
Be realistic about what you can accomplish effectively each day.
Monitor your pace. Rushing through things can lead to mistakes or poor performance. Take the time you need to do a good job.
– Poorly done tasks can lead to added stress.

Laugh, Use Humour

Do something fun and enjoyable such as seeing a funny movie, laughing with friends, reading a humorous book, or going to a comedy show.

Learn To Relax

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS – GOING BEYOND THE QUICK FIX TO OPTIMAL HEALTH

A new year brings new hopes and desires to improve health. We seem to want to lose weight, improve our fitness levels, change our look & even relook our personal & business goals and aspirations.

Personally, I am one of those that sweeps clean and starts off with great gusto on new projects and have found that without proper thought & planning - I seem to lose sight of the very goal I set out to achieve in a very short space of time due to being unfocused – probably a little ADD which in itself would probably require Mentat – Jokes aside, I do know for myself that if my nutrition is good and my exercise regime is regular I can accomplish so much more. Without the planning and structure so necessary to achieve the desired outcomes, I invariably fail to accomplish all I set out to do.

"MY GOAL FOR 2020 IS TO BE ABLE TO OFFER YOU THE VERY BEST INTEGRATED MEDICAL ADVICE AND SUPPORT YOU ON YOUR OWN 2020 JOURNEY WITH EASE AND COMFORT".

This is where I take the time to screen & evaluate my patients current status, lifestyle – and assist in unpacking the toolbox we all have within us and remind every patient that these are all achievable with some guidance, perseverance and dedication. I pride in providing an integrated approach working with the patient to achieve their personal health goals.

To achieve those New Year’s health goals there are 2 fundamentals that need to be highlighted:
1. CLEAR, ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION ON EVIDENCE-BASED APPROACHES TO HEALTH allowing you to differentiate between fact and marketing hype. Balanced Healing – Sr Bridget Spargo, can set the stage for sustained health and well-being, by better managing issues like diet, sleep, and stress.
2. A SHIFT IN MINDSET from seeking separate, disconnected solutions to treat various ailments to recognizing that many health problems may be connected. While our general approach to health care tends to zoom in on specific diseases or even individual body parts, research continues to tell us that assessing the big picture can be important to setting the stage for sustained whole-person health and well-being.

I will be continuing to educate through various articles / Blogs and useful information during the year.
MY wish for you is to gain a better understanding of the interrelationship of factors that make up your health, and I hope you’ll stay up-to-date with new findings and future directions with our blogs and make an investment in your health with a personalized consultation & screening to assist you on your journey to health & happiness in 2020.

A Healthy Happy New Year to all.

A silent tragedy

There is a silent tragedy that is developing day after day in our homes and concerns our most precious jewels: our children.
Our children are in a devastating emotional state.
Over the past 15 years, researchers have given us increasingly alarming statistics about a sharp and steady increase in childhood mental illness that is now reaching epidemic proportions:

Statistics don't lie:
• 1 in 5 children have mental health problems
• A 43% increase in ADHD was noted
• A 37% increase in adolescent depression was noted
• A 200% increase in the suicide rate in children between 10 and 14 years has been noted.

What is going on and what are we doing wrong?

Today's children are over-stimulated and overloaded with material objects, but they are deprived of what is truly fundamental for a healthy and happy childhood, such as:
• Emotionally available parents
• Clearly defined limits
• Responsibility
• Balanced nutrition and good sleep quality
• Movement in the open air
• Creative play, social interaction, unstructured play opportunities and spaces for boredom.

Instead, these last few years we have filled them with:
• Digitally distracted parents
• Indulgent and permissive parents who let children "rule the world" and be the ones who set the rules
• A sense of right, of undeservedly everything without earning it or being responsible for it
• Inadequate sleep and unbalanced nutrition
• A sedentary lifestyle
• Endless stimulation, technological babysitters, instant gratification and the absence of boring moments.

What to do?
If we want our children to be happy and healthy individuals, we must wake up and go back to basics.
It is still possible ... with the following recommendations:

• Set limits and remember that you are the captain of the ship. Your children will feel more confident knowing that you are in control of the helm.
• Offer children a balanced lifestyle full of what they need, not just what they want. Don't be afraid to say "no" to your kids if what they want isn't what they need.
• Provide nutritious foods and limit junk food.
• Spend at least an hour a day outdoors doing activities such as: cycling, walking, fishing, bird / insect watching.
• Enjoy a daily family dinner with no phones or technology to distract them.
• Play with family board games or if the children are very young for board games, let yourself be carried away by your interests and allow them to lead the game.
• Involve your children in some homework or homework according to their age (folding clothes, ordering toys, hanging clothes, arranging food, setting the table, feeding the dog, etc.).
• Implement a consistent sleep routine to ensure that your baby sleeps well. Timetables will be even more important for school-aged children.
• Teach responsibility and independence. Do not protect them in excess against any frustration or error. Making mistakes will help them develop resilience and learn to overcome life's challenges,
• Do not load your children's backpack, do not bring their backpacks, do not bring them the task they have forgotten, do not peel their bananas or oranges if they can do it alone (4-5 years). Instead of giving them fish, educate them to fish.
• Educate them to wait and delay gratification.
• Provide opportunities for "boredom" as boredom is the moment when creativity awakens. You don't feel responsible for keeping children entertained.
• Do not use technology as a cure for boredom, nor offer it on the first second of inactivity.
• Avoid the use of technology during meals, in cars, in restaurants, in shopping malls. Use these moments as an opportunity to socialize, thus training your brains to work when they are in "boredom" mode.
• Help them create a "jar of boredom" with business ideas for when they are bored.
• Turn off phones at night when children have to go to bed to avoid digital distraction.
• Become a regulator or emotional trainer of your children. Educate them to recognize and manage their frustrations and anger.
• Educate them to greet, to take turns, to share without remaining without anything, to say thank you and please, to recognize the error and apologize (do not force them), be a model of all those values ​​that you inculcate them.
• Connect emotionally - smiles, hugs, kisses, tickles, reading, dancing, jumping, playing with them.

Thank you for the share.

It has taken twenty years of research, but the verdict is now in and scientists are saying that negative feelings, especially those of un-forgiveness can lead to the development of cancer.
