Men’s Health Week – It’s Time To Talk

The Importance of Men’s Health Week

This week, 11th – 17th June 2018, is Men’s Health Week 2018. Men’s Health Week is an annual event in the UK (although it is also celebrated Worldwide), which usually takes place the week leading up to Father’s Day.

Every year, Men’s Health Week is celebrated to heighten awareness of health issues that affect men, in the hope they will discuss their problems and gain the courage to do something about them! We want to champion this cause and help:

The True Impact Of Mental Health

Mental Health Awareness Week

This week, 14th – 20th May, marks Mental Health Awareness Week. Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, this year the organisation have focused on the effects of stress.

“By tackling stress, we can go a long way to tackle mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression, and in some instances, self-harm and suicide. We will look at how we can tackle stress and help improve our mental health.”

Stress Management Techniques

Do I really need stress management techniques?

Next week is Mental Health Awareness Week and this year the charity is strongly focusing on stress. Research shows that two thirds of us experience a mental health problem in our life, and stress is the key factor in this. Here, we look back at one of our old articles from 2016 and see how these stress management techniques are still as relevant as ever…

Mental Health Awareness In The Workplace

Investing in Your Staff, Investing In Their Mental Health

For many of us, work is a major part of our lives. It is where we spend much of our time, where we earn our income and often where we make friends. Having a fulfilling job can be great for your mental health and general wellbeing.

Top 6 Health Benefits Of Eating Blueberries

Why We Should Add Blueberries To Our Diets

Whether they are purchased fresh, frozen or dried – blueberries are packed with nutritional power.

Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods, such as blueberries, decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. They can also promote hair and skin health, increased energy and overall lower weight.

Why Exactly Is A Workplace Health Check SO Important?

A Workplace Health Check Program – Do We REALLY Need That?

Staff health should always be a priority. We see it as vital.

A healthy workforce is one that’s engaged and therefore more productive. Even if a member of staff comes to work, if they don’t feel well, they won’t be as productive as they could be. This costs companies money and makes for unhappy employees. The health of the workforce is something that should be high on the agenda of every organisation to recruit, engage and retain talent! In addition we think it quite simply demonstrates to employees that they are a valued part of a company, their employer cares. Our surveys show clearly this matters to employees. A Tonic Workplace Health Check can help to identify health problems early before they become serious enough to take a person off work – and that’s a good thing for everyone!

Speak Up And Speak Out About Stress

Stress Awareness Day #INSAD
1st November 2017

What is Stress Awareness Day?

Now a globally recognised event, International Stress Awareness Day (INSAD) is something we have championed since we established Tonic in 2004 hence this being our 13th successful year supporting the International Stress Management Association (ISMA).

As an authority on stress, lead professional body, it helps us to provide information on stress, and strategies on how to address it. This year the theme is Speak Up and Speak Out About Stress!

Breakfast – the most important meal of the day?

To breakfast or not to breakfast – that is the question…

We all know how important it is to start the day with a good breakfast. Research suggests it sets us up for the day ahead, helps us to stay focused and boosts our metabolism. We’re told that eating breakfast makes us less likely to be overweight, and if we don’t we’ll be so hungry that we’ll eat more later. Many experts are so passionately attached to this message it’s as if the world might end if we skip breakfast!

The Ultimate Bedtime Routine to Help You Sleep!

Why a good bedtime routine should be top of our daily to-do list

There’s no question that most of us aren’t getting enough sleep. According to the Sleep Council nearly half of us are getting just six hours sleep or less a night. And an alarming four out of five people complain of disturbed or inadequate sleep! The sleeping sweet spot is closer to seven to nine hours per night all days of the week, and anything less can have a profoundly negative impact upon your health and puts us into the insomniac category.
