  • Many of us will set goals this month, but aiming for the stratosphere isn’t always beneficial. Instead, remember the 1% rule — just make small 1% changes rather than massive overhauls. They’re more sustainable and you’re more likely to stick to them as you work towards a better you.

    For a bit of extra help, take a peek at this LifeWorks article on building new habits.

  • This month’s bWell suggestion is health checks. You may be offered one as part of your workplace benefits — if you are, get it booked! Early detection is vital for many illnesses; it can result in better treatment and management, fewer complications and better outcomes.

    For the over-40s, the NHS offers a free health check through your GP. This can detect if you're at higher risk of certain health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease or stroke, as well as how to improve lifestyle to reduce these risks.

    For our younger audience, you don’t have to wait until you’re eligible for a free NHS health check. There’s plenty of information about most health conditions and how to have a healthier lifestyle on the NHS website.

  • Whilst small amounts of stress can be motivational or productive, helping us meet a deadline or juggle multiple demanding tasks, when there are just too many forces pulling you in different directions it’s only human to struggle.

    Stress Awareness Month reminds us how important it is to remind your staff of the support you make available.

    Line managers can take this CPD-accredited e-module which looks at the effects of stress and highlight the importance of looking after yourself and your staff.

    If you’ve signed up to enhanced LifeWorks, your staff can take a Mental Total Wellbeing assessment, which can help them understand how to work in a balanced way that doesn’t cause stress.

  • Put your best foot forward with a National Walking Month challenge with your employees. Try making every 1-2-1 between employees and line managers a walking 1-2-1 if you can. Simply walking a bit more can alleviate so many health problems, so give walking meetings a go for a month and see if they make a difference. You could even get a competition going to see how far people can make it walking and talking.
