Halloween Charity Bike Ride

 

This Halloween, the Complex and Care at Home team have set themselves a challenge to cycle the equivalent distance from Chester to London on an exercise bike (that’s a whopping 219 miles) to promote the benefits exercise can have on mental health.

The more exercise you do, the more chemicals like endorphins and serotonin are released in your body which helps to improve your mood and wellbeing, reducing feelings of stress and anxiety. You don’t have to spend hours in the gym, instead find activities that you enjoy, from walking to swimming, dancing to jogging, as long as you are having fun and feeling good that is all that matters.

The event will take place over 1 week, so make sure you pop in to show your support!

5 Top Tips for a Healthy Mind in The Workplace

 

These tips will help you think how to best manage your mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.

Be Active

The benefits of exercise go far beyond calorie burning! Physical activities and exercise are a great way to boost your mental wellbeing. The more exercise you do, the more chemicals like endorphins and serotonin are released in your body which helps to improve your mood and wellbeing.

You don’t have to spend hours in the gym if that’s not your thing, instead find activities that you enjoy, from walking to swimming, dancing to running, as long as you’re having fun and feeling good that is all that matters.

Connect with Others

Connecting with others can create a greater sense of belonging and self-worth. Take some time out to have lunch with a colleague or speak to someone from another department, you may find that building strong relationships with the people around you will make you feel happier, healthier and more secure.

Create a Realistic Work-life Balance

From time to time managing work, life and family responsibilities may get on top of you, so instead of trying to strive for the perfect work-life balance, you should strive for a more realistic one.

This can be achieved by playing to your strengths and prioritising your work, at the end of your working day write a to-do-list for the following day, you may find that when your thoughts are down on paper, you’ll find it easier not to think about work.

Learn a New Skill

Not only can learning a new skill be useful, it can also improve your mental wellbeing, improving your confidence, self-esteem and help you to cope with stressful situations more effectively.

Learning something new doesn’t mean having to gain an extra qualification, instead you could rediscover and old interest or set yourself a new challenge, you may find that this will make you feel more satisfied and create a sense of achievement.

Take Notice

Taking notice is important to your mental wellbeing. Often, you may find that you are busy making plans, going from one task to another. So, it is important that you make the time to be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling. Try to reflect on your experiences and appreciate what matters to you, whether you are spending time with friends or taking a moment to yourself.
