Mindfulness and Creativity week

Mindfulness and Creativity Week

Today marks the start of mindfulness and creativity week and the launch of #EveryMindMatters a NHS campaign that encourages people to take simple steps to look after their mental health, improve their mental wellbeing and support others.

If you’ve followed us for a while you will know that supporting mental health in the workplace has formed an important part of our agenda this year. A few weeks ago, a group of us participated in a 32km walk in the Brecon Beacons to raise money for our nominated charity Mind #mindcharity. In November we are hosting some Mental Health Awareness Training.

Whilst there is always more work to be done, we continue to encourage our employees to strive for the ever-elusive work-life balance and aim to support all flexible and alternative working options. On a day-to-day basis in the office, it is really important to us that we align as much of the work our people do with their personal interests and the things that give them joy.

This week we are running a mindfulness and creativity schedule in the office as follows:

Monday – puzzles

Tuesday – make your own cress garden

Wednesday & Thursday – model making

Friday – bike ride & pub lunch

Keep an eye on our Instagram for updates and pictures of us challenging ourselves to be a little more mindful and creative this week!
