    EP 1000 – Take Back Your Lunch Break

    EP 1000 – Take Back Your Lunch Break

    It is time to take make sure that we take our lunch break. 


    North American workers who take a lunch break every day scored higher on a wide range of engagement metrics, including job satisfaction, likelihood to continue working at the same company, and likelihood to recommend their employer to others.


    And though we would like to blame others for not taking our lunch break, that doesn’t seem to be the case in reality.


    It seems that our workload is a much greater influence on whether or not we take a lunch break than our boss or company policy. And if we do eat, we tend to stay at our desks and nibble while we work.


    So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Take Back The Lunch Break Day:


    Know that it is essential to take that lunch break in order to maintain your energy and productivity.


    38% of employees don’t feel encouraged to take a lunch break.


    It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure healthy habits within the workplace. 


    So, invite a friend to go for a lunchtime walk. The light break and exercise will boost your mental health and your immunity.


    If you are the boss, model healthy habits by not calling lunch time meetings.


    Encourage your team to leave their desks for lunch.


    Prolonged sitting is a health risk, so get up, stretch, grab something to eat, and change the scenery.


    Your mind and body will thank you.

    EP 999 – Why It’s Time To Break For Recess

    EP 999 – Why It’s Time To Break For Recess

    I remember running out of the school double doors to get to the swing first.


    We all hated when it rained, and we had to stay indoors in the classroom reading quietly.


    Recess was the best part of my school day. In fact, we know from our research that school children who receive more recess time behaved better and were likely to learn more. But recess time is declining. Since the 1970s, children have lost about 12 hours per week in free time. And adults are suffering too.


    In our workplace we don’t call it recess, we call it break time. And according to research, 1 in 4 of us barely even get up from our desk to go for a bio break, let alone get outside. There is no excitement. No energy. And almost certainly, no fun.


    When we don’t take a break we create a stressful workplace. And when we don’t restore our energy, we are setting ourselves and our companies up for higher stress, lower morale and engagement, poor creativity and employee performance issues.


    So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Recess At Work Day:


    Change your mindset. Breaks are a necessity, not a luxury. Workers who failed to take breaks were at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease.


    A recess mind-set is an opportunity to build resiliency, create team spirit, engage employees, increase morale, improve health and wellness and share some fun with those that you work with.


    So, What are you favourite workplace fun activities?

    EP 998 – Different Ways Of Handling Stress

    EP 998 – Different Ways Of Handling Stress

    Men tend to deal with stress differently than women. 


    Women tend to share, while men tend to bottle the stress up inside of them.  This can eat away at them causing high blood pressure, gastrointestinal issues, sleep issues and a loss of perspective.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, men die at higher rates than women from the top 10 causes of death, with stress being one of them.


    So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Men’s Health Week:


    Men need to develop positive outlets to relieve their stress while they are at work.


    Many men suffer from ‘terminal seriousness’ in the workplace.  Terminal seriousness can hamper communication, problem solving and teamwork.  So incorporate a play break and have fun. This break can help to increase productivity and creativity, while decreasing stress.


    The purpose of Men’s Health Week is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.  Finding outlets to work out stress throughout the day, such as squeezing that stress ball or throwing that paper airplane, can prevent stress from building and negatively impacting your health.


    Lighten up and play – your body and mind will thank you.

    EP 997 – Capture A Moment

    EP 997 – Capture A Moment

    Once there was a time when photography didn’t exist.  A time when precious moments couldn’t be captured, uploaded and shared.


    I look back at my baby pictures and there were only a handful. My mom and dad had a single picture each and I don’t know if I have ever saw one of any of my grandparents when they were really young. Compare all of that to the albums upon albums that I have of my sons who are now young adults.


    Today, we don’t even print all of our pictures, but save them to on-line albums or files to be viewed at any given instant.


    Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.


    Photography is a great hobby that can help us build our resiliency. It is something to take our minds off of all of our stressful life situations.


    So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Nature Photography Day:


    Photography can be a means to get out and physically active. Use your camera to take note of the awesome or the bizarre. Have some fun looking for the humour in everyday life.


    Photography is a good activity to strengthen relationships. Make it an outing and invite others to join you. Visit the park or a natural habitat and spend time discussing what you see.


    So what is the funniest photograph that you have ever taken’

    Get your family involved – go together and make it a family giving project


    Be a role model for others – I love how my mom still goes regularly to donate.

    EP 995 – Random Acts Of Light

    EP 995 – Random Acts Of Light

    “There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”


    This quote by Edith Wharton encourages us to bring light to someone who has been touched by the darkness.


    Many are living in darkness while struggling with illness. These illnesses may be depression, chronic pain, or battling cancer and the struggle they are facing may be draining the light from their life.


    Random Acts of Light encourage everyone to show a random act of light for a friend or loved one with cancer or other illness. Initiatives are being taken across the country to show support, one person at a time.


    So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Random Acts Of Light Day:


    Light The Night showcases the progress being made in the cancer arena along with the importance of supporting patients, one at a time.


    Bring light to someone you know. This can be any random act, big or small.


    Surprise someone at the hospital with a meal, gift certificate or kind gesture.


    Gift a cancer patient or survivor with tickets to a sporting event, or gear from a favorite team.


    Treat a local survivor or patient or colleague to a manicure, pedicure or massage.


    Take those in need out for coffee, ice cream, breakfast, lunch or dinner.


    Sometimes it takes just one gentle word or small token to help overcome darkness.
