1. Encourage physical activity
Keeping fit and adopting healthy habits is a great way to reduce stress and help your employees keep a level head. Research shows that getting moving, no matter what form it’s in, can really help you de-stress. So, why not try introducing a variety of different activities for staff to get involved in?
Whether it’s a half hour yoga session during lunch or an after-work running club, giving opportunities to help your employees get moving can really improve their overall mood and mental health. We all know that exercise is good for the body, but the feel-good endorphins released when we get moving really make a difference to our outlook on the day.
If you have a less fitness-focused workforce, even getting everyone out for a lunchtime walk can make the world of difference. Walking for half an hour every day really helps reduce tension, boost enthusiasm and relax the brain. In turn, all of this helps staff to be more productive when they’re back at their desks and boosts the flow of creativity for the rest of the day.
