Optimising mental wellbeing and managing stress through the power of Nutrition

Bath Mind and its experienced associated trainers have put together a taster video for all interested in its Online Wellbeing in the Workplace package. There is significant evidence to show that looking after the mental health of your employees makes business sense and increases productivity. Creating awareness and a supportive culture around mental health can make a real difference to sickness absence rates, presenteeism levels, staff wellbeing and productivity. People are the most important asset to your organisation and to ensure they are performing at their best it is imperative to look after their mental wellbeing, especially with the pressure and limitations that the pandemic continues to bring on us all. Working from home has for many suddenly become a daily staple of working life and the boundaries between work and home are now blurred, impacting on our eating habits and psychology considerably. With mental wellbeing at the forefront of this, we will explore what it takes to support and nourish both brain and body for optimal productivity and resilience. This session is evidence based, yet practical and down-to-earth as we consider the interplay between our bodies, minds and environments for optimal well-being. Featuring expert trainers: Laura Clark is a Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Consultant providing consultancy for individuals, employees at work and food brands. She combines her love of science, people and food, to provide insightful evidence-based expertise, tailored to real life.
