Five steps to wellbeing at work

Work smarter and live healthier for a less stressed life.

Consider these five essential steps to improving wellbeing at work. They’re a great way to start thinking about how you can improve your daily working life:

  1. Start a To Do list: At the end of each day, go over your list and write up one for the next day, when your thoughts are down on paper, you’ll find it easier to not think about work – causing you to feel less stressed, especially as you tick things off the list.
  2. Ask for help: If you feel your workload is spiralling out of control, take the opportunity to discuss it with your manager or supervisor. If you can’t resolve the problem of unrealistic goals, organisation problems or deadlines in this way, talk to your personnel department, trade union representative or other relevant members of staff.
  3. Whistle while you work: If you’re feeling stressed, listening to a calming song can take your mind off work for a few minutes and help you unwind and refocus. Research has found slow, quiet music can encourage relaxation and reduce anxiety. When you’re working hard to complete a task, music can also help eliminate distractions around you. By blocking out the noise of your fellow workers, machinery or bleeping phones you can focus easier on the task at hand. Listen to your favourite song as a simple treat to yourself. Rewarding yourself is a great way for your general wellbeing, giving you some added motivation so you can better tackle a big workload.
  4. Reclaim your lunch break: Why not make the most of that precious hour – or half hour – by taking a walk outside, holding an office group activity such as a 20-minute yoga class or simply eat your lunch at a work-neutral spot. Research says that maintaining your fitness levels will help you de-stress from work. 
  5. Get your work-home life balance right: Create clear boundaries between work and home, by trying not to let work spill over into your personal life. If you need to bring work home, designate a separate area for work and stick to it, you’ll find it much easier to then close the door on work.
