WorkLife eMag – Look after your Social Connection

It has never been more urgent to look after your social connection. In the year 2020, we were taught to implement social distancing. Since then, there has been a divide between people. We cannot get too close to others for fear we may contaminate each other. Yet, as social beings, we cannot thrive without others. Our psychology demands this. The need for others is especially important for our young. So, what can we do? This latest issue of WorkLife, ‘Social Connection’, reminds us that connecting is still a necessity of ours. It also shows us some of the things we need to do to reverse social distancing’s negative consequences and move forward.

WorkLife Fear Factor

WorkLife eMag – The Fear Factor: Exploring the Psychology of Fear

There’s no way around it; fear is an ugly and harmful thing. Fear can be all-encompassing and turn reasonable and intelligent people mad. It is at the heart of every mental health problem.

That’s why it’s essential we understand the psychological drivers of fear, how fear operates, and the damage it can cause. This edition of Worklife delves into these drivers of fear and exposes the harm it causes. We have also added some advice as to what you can do to protect yourself from fear, anxiety and stress.

Mental Health and Resilience are more crucial than ever for organizations, companies and individuals. At the Workplace Mental Health Institute, our response to fear is to meet it head-on with education.

We are pleased to present you with our last eMag for 2020 – The Fear Factor.

WorkLife eMag – August 2019 Issue

Mental Health is a tsunami that’s coming. Life has acquired a unique complexity of late and this state of affairs is sure to impact people’s mental health. Workplaces must stay on top of this. If they don’t, they risk becoming irrelevant to their workforce and to their market. There’s a high price to be paid when people’s mental health is not cared for. Is your organisation ready?

WorkLife eMag – Jan 2019 Issue

This month is Wisdom month. Why? Because, as we’ve all experienced with past New Year resolutions, knowing how to do something is not enough to get it done. We need something else and, we now know, it’s wisdom. That’s why you’ll love our feature interview and article with Vikas Malkani, whom I call Mr Wisdom. Check it out.

WorkLife-Nov-Dec-2018

WorkLife eMag – Nov-Dec 2018 Issue

Although it can be an exciting and loving season, sadly, for many, it’s also the Stress Season. I know because it’s the busiest time of the year for our mental health professionals, therapist and coaches. For many of our clients, the busy-ness of trying to get everything wrapped up by an end-of-year deadline, the financial stretch that comes with gift giving or travel, family issues, or loneliness can all make it a difficult time.

Of course, I’m not saying that all mental health issues can be solved simply by love. I’m not. But, if it heals just a little, just like the research shows, it does, then won’t it have been worth it? Maybe you can even share this special issue of WorkLife?

WorkLife-Oct-2018

WorkLife eMag October-2018 Issue

October is Mental Health Month, but you’ve probably heard all about it. It’s all about creating mental health awareness. But how much more awareness do we need? Don’t we know by now that mental health is important, that is costing us massively, and that we need to do something about it? And the even bigger question is what will we DO with our increased awareness?

I’m hoping that as a society, in Australia and around the world, the increased awareness results in healthier people, not simply in the identifying of more sick people.

It is my hope that, as you read this month’s WorkLife issue, you too get ideas for that kind of frank discussion. Our cover has Real Housewives of New York Wives star, Bethanny Frankel. An exceptional business woman and someone who has had her share of difficult times and has had to develop resilience. It’s a short but interesting interview. Check it out.

WorkLife-Sep-2018

WorkLife eMag September-2018 Issue

This September issue of WorkLife is dedicated to the Future of Work. Yes, we’re assuming work has a future and we’ve dared to explore it.

Why? Because as we deliver consulting and education to more and more corporations and organizations around the world, we are seeing increasing levels of work-related stress and anxiety, in part brought about by the way in which work and workplaces are changing.

We know that mental health and wellbeing at work is strongly associated with overall wellbeing – after all, work occupies so much of our lives. But, we also know that work can be good for wellbeing and for recovery from mental disorders! Have a read and watch the interview with Michelle Duval.
