An inside job
We are the indoor generation, spending 90% of our day inside and most of that sitting down; if we continue this way we have no chance of escaping with our health intact. We ignore our physiology at our peril. Coupled with significant lifestyle changes in the last 100 years, including the breakdown of traditional communities, the cult of the individual and living with the fallout from both the industrial and digital revolutions, no wonder a lot of us are struggling to keep up.
Mental health issues including addiction, suicide, depression, ADHD and loneliness plague our modern ‘utopia’, posing uncomfortable questions about the price of material progress, its impact on the world around us and our own sanity.
All is not lost, as awareness is the first part of the process I draw from current research to show how we can re-design our lives to maximise health and happiness.
Health doesn’t end at our front door and corporate culture needs to change; using the latest evidence I show how it’s not serving employees, and how health and happiness shouldn’t be vague notions, but an integral part of a successful business. A positive workplace culture boosts productivity by up to 20%, reduces absenteeism, increases staff retention and job satisfaction - a win-win for everyone.
