As we near the end of the second week of the COVID-19 lockdown in the UK, for many of us it is also the second week of working from home. And whilst a good portion of the work we are doing remains the same, our workplace surrounding has changed drastically. Some of us may have adapted to our new workplaces well, however for others it has proven more difficult.
We are all facing extremely uncertain times due to the Coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak. With this uncertainty comes stress, fear and anxiety. However whilst the pandemic is inevitable, instead of worrying and focusing on all of the scary “what-ifs” which drains energy from our bodies – now is the time to reprogram. It is time to cultivate a positive mindset. It is time to be proactive in optimising our health & building our immune system in order to try to “corona-proof” our lives.
Let’s all think about how often we spend walking everyday? We walk up stairs, we walk to our cars, we walk through doors and we walk to get or pick something up. Therefore for many of us, walking is a simple activity we do frequently everyday, without even thinking about it. Now think how you feel about walking as a form of exercise…
With a brand new year comes new goals, mindsets and fresh starts. However, as we enter the second month of 2020, it is a great time to reconsider how are you getting on with your new year resolutions. For some of us, we may have already fallen at the first hurdle, however this doesn’t mean we should feel either defeated or deflated. No! Far from it! There’s still another 11 months to go. So, if you feel you need a little help, we have put together our 2020 guide on getting more active, toning up and feeling more energised!
A brand new year is upon us and we unreservedly welcome 2020. A new decade has arrived and so has our brand new “Tonic and Me” app. Are you ready to make 2020 the year you prioritise wellbeing in your workplace?
For many of us, it is the most wonderful time of the year. We break up from work, get to spend plenty of time with our loved ones, consume copious amounts of good food and alcohol and give and receive heart-felt gifts. However, for some of us, it can all just get a little too much…
In general, December is a good time for morale; everybody in the office is on a high! Employees are looking forward to their Christmas party; to recognition and rewards from their managers and then breaking up for the festivities. How do we prolong this though? How do companies ensure those feel-good emotions and positivity continue for the other 11 months of the year? Concrete research and evidence shows that workplace wellbeing programmes are not only welcomed, but they are highly sought after and desired. We go one step further at Tonic and say a wellbeing programme should be embedded in to every company that is striving to attract, engage and retain talent!
November, or more commonly referred to as Movember, is Men’s Health Awareness Month. During the 30 days, men commonly grow a moustache to help raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, especially prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
The wonderful festive season is nearly upon us and whilst we all intend to relax, indulge and fully enjoy ourselves this winter; to avoid a festive frazzle we want to reiterate just how important it is to NOT hibernate. Instead, we need to ensure we continue to stay active and better still, be active outdoors whenever we can!
Knowing your cholesterol numbers can help you stay in control of your health! A high level of cholesterol in the blood doesn’t have obvious symptoms, which is why getting your cholesterol levels checked is so important. Left untreated, high blood cholesterol can lead to plaque build-up in the arteries, putting you at risk of heart disease and stroke.
