Mental Health Awareness Month
As we celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month, let’s take a moment to acknowledge the impact of stress and anxiety in the workplace. We know that the staffing industry can be fast-paced and demanding, but we believe that prioritizing mental health is crucial for success.
Did you know that workplace stress and anxiety can lead to decreased productivity, low morale, and even physical health problems? That’s why we’ve compiled a list of resources to help you take care of your mental health, both in and out of the office:
- Take a break! Studies show that taking regular breaks throughout the workday can improve productivity, reduce stress, and increase creativity. More specifically, a study by DeskTime, a productivity app, found that the most productive employees tend to work for 2 hours and then take a 30-minute break. So, go ahead and step outside for a few minutes of fresh air or take a quick yoga break at your desk.
- Reach out for support. Whether it’s a co-worker, friend, or family member, talking to someone about what you’re going through can be incredibly helpful. And if you need more support, there are plenty of resources available, including the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and Mental Health America (MHA).
- Practice self-care. Self-care can look different for everyone, but some ideas include taking a bubble bath, going for a run, or simply taking time to read a book. Whatever it is that makes you feel relaxed and rejuvenated, make sure you prioritize it in your schedule.
At Staff Management, we recognize that mental health is just as important as physical health. That’s why we encourage our employees to take care of themselves and provide a supportive work environment to promote overall well-being.
So, as we observe Mental Health Awareness Month, we want to make a commitment to prioritize our mental health and support those around us who may be struggling. Let’s work together to create a workplace culture that supports mental wellness because happy employees are productive employees.
