Old habits die hard and your staff may struggle with motivation to address issues impacting their health. These may range from poor dietary choices, to staying up late watching TV leading to fatigue at work.
Anita’s Health & Wellness workshops are not about making your staff feel criticised and judged. It is about educating them as to why a chemical in their brain leads them to stay up late watching episode after episode of a box set. Or how a specific hormone imbalance may lead them to choose sugary fatty foods rather than more nutrient dense options.
In a workshop setting, Anita will set tasks so your staff can share their experiences of their lifestyle habits, dietary choices, likes and dislikes etc. Anita will also encourage them to share their self-sabotaging habits, weaknesses etc
Anita will then encourage your staff to set goals and pair up with a ‘buddy’ to hold them answerable to achieve their goals. At a future date Anita can also hold an ‘Accountability Workshop’ to see where everyone is with regards to their Health & Wellness goals.
Meditation is defined as a group of self-regulation practices used to focus an individual’s attention in order to achieve increased voluntary control over various psycho-emotional and physiologic states.
It is an ancient practice originating around 1,500 BCE in India and is increasingly used as a modality to treat physical and psycho-emotional disorders, including anxiety (Satsangi and Brugnoli, 2018), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD; Poissant et al., 2019), Majeed et al., 2018), depression (Carpena et al., 2019), irritable bowel syndrome (Gaylord et al., 2011), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD; Gallegos et al., 2017).
