At NABS, our mission is to help our industry to thrive. Even making small changes to your working life can improve your wellbeing. At our workplace wellbeing conference WellFest, held in November 2019, leaders across wellbeing and adland suggested some practical changes. We’ve combined these with some of our own guidance to give you a few ideas to help you thrive in the year ahead.
Find your “sharing tribe”, people at work, and at home, who, in the words of Will Young at WellFest, will validate your feelings. Equally, don’t try to ‘fix’ someone when they share their wellbeing challenges with you. Put solutions to one side. Simply listening can be the greatest help of all and this was a key WellFest takeaway.
Get to know your values and how you work best. Communicating these values to your colleagues will help you to set clear boundaries. Start asking open questions. That will enable you to connect better with those around you, which in turn improves wellbeing, brain chemistry and clarity.
Encourage your team to ask each other, “How can I support you?” It’s a great question to enhance wellbeing. Leave work on time, which will encourage your team to do the same. Make the most of NABS. We provide free coaching, Masterclasses, evening Talks and an Advice Line. Browse our site to see how we can help you to thrive this year.
