    TIP 2068  1704 1345 973 239 602 – Schizo Is Not Okay

    Listen to today's podcast...
    What are the first words that come to mind when you think about Schizophrenia?
    Some of those may include: crazy, psycho, or dangerous.
    Often, someone with schizophrenia is portrayed in the media and through film and television as dangerous or violent, however, this is not the case. A person who is affected by schizophrenia is not more dangerous than anyone else
    Most of us are not really aware of what Schizophrenia all entails.
    Schizophrenia is an example of a thought disorder, characterized by a history of acute psychosis and chronic deterioration of functioning, and affecting thinking, perception, mood and behaviour.
    Take One Action Today To Build Your #Resiliency!      So Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Schizophrenia Awareness Week:
    There are still many misconceptions about schizophrenia, and it continues to be a mental health challenge that is rarely spoken about.
    These misconceptions lead to further stigma, prejudice and discrimination.
    Stigma is perhaps the biggest barrier to mental health care. This stigma can prevent people from getting hired, promoted or keeping a job, getting proper health care, feeling loved, needed and accepted, contributing to communities or feeling productive.
    Find ways to
    Educate yourself about all mental health challenges and issues
    Foster a healthy workplace environment
    Emphasize abilities, not limitations
    It is everyone's responsibility to reduce the stigma, prejudice and discrimination associated with mental illness. Education and understanding are key.

    TIP 2067 – The People That You Meet Each Day

    TIP 2067 – The People That You Meet Each Day

    Listen to today's podcast...
    Today is a celebration of community, encouraging people to connect with those who live in their neighbourhood.
    Even with physical distancing, social connection is critical to our ability to be resilient.
    Many of us are stressed out, managing and coping through this uncertainty. Our social network has become smaller and smaller. 
    Many of us seem to have drifted away from our previous sense of “community” and are now living very private, even lonely, lives.
    Take One Action Today To Build Your #Resiliency!      So Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Neighbours Day:
    70% say that having friends at work was the most crucial element to a happy working life.
    So find ways to get connected to your neighbours at home and your colleagues from work.
    Remember that developing and maintaining good social connections takes effort.  Connection and friendships take time to grow, to build trust and to share common experiences, but friendships can protect your health, so make plans to get together, even if it is on-line.
    If planning an event seems overwhelming, just start by saying a quick hello. A quick greeting can lead to a longer conversation, that may reveal commonalities, that can grow into a true connection.

    TIP 2066 – Powerful Connections

    TIP 2066 – Powerful Connections

    Listen to today's podcast...
    I found it very hard and often stressful staying connected to family and friends.  Our lives were too busy and setting up time to connect seemed like a major exercise in the calendar shuffle.
    It wasn’t that I didn’t want to visit with them, it was just that there never seemed to be enough time to do it all. Now we are physically distancing and I would so love to be visiting, even though I am still just as busy.
    I loved visiting my grandma, especially when we would just sit and play cards for a while.  I can still remember the family reunions at the local community center with everyone sitting out on the grass, playing baseball and eating all that amazing food that was set out on the picnic tables, or our Christmases where Santa would come to surprise everyone with a gift or two.
    Take One Action Today To Build Your #Resiliency!      Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Visit Your Relatives Day:
    Family and friends can provide the support system needed to get us through these hardest of times.
    Visit Your Relatives Day was intended to give us the opportunity to get closer to our relatives, stay connected to family and friends, and to strengthen family ties and relationships. It is still a good day to consider how you are keeping these special connections strong during this time.
    Even though you can’t go and visit them, research suggests that even just viewing photos of family members prompts brain activity that can positively affect how you feel about them and even yourself.

    TIP 2065 – Get Your BP Checked

    Listen to today's podcast...
    May is Hypertension Month and health professionals from across Canada are encouraging Canadians to know their numbers to help prevent and control hypertension and avoid its serious and deadly complications.
    Hypertension is the leading preventable cause of death and disability around the world, and can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and dementia. Over 7.5 million Canadians have hypertension, and 7.4 million more have high blood pressure that will lead to hypertension without preventative action.
    Take One Action Today To Build Your #Resiliency!      Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating World Hypertension Day:
    In those who have hypertension, about 30% is related to increased salt consumption, and about 20% related to low dietary potassium, so chose foods wisely.
    Physical inactivity is related to about 20% of hypertension, so get moving and active.
    Obesity is related to about 30% of hypertension, so keep your weight in check.
    Excess alcohol consumption also causes hypertension, so don’t over-indulge.
    Being tobacco free is especially important for people with hypertension.
    High blood pressure often has no symptoms. Most individuals with hypertension are unaware that their blood pressure is high, so get checked and keep your blood pressure in check.

    TIP 2064 – Sexual Harassment Is Still Out There

    TIP 2064 – Sexual Harassment Is Still Out There

    Listen to today's podcast...
    It is out there. We all know that it’s out there. Yet, many of us still ignore it, pretend that we don’t hear it or worse yet, we laugh and join in on it. Sometimes out of embarrassment. Sometimes out of fear.
    Recent results show that more than a quarter of working Canadians have experienced sexual harassment or been affected by it. This can result in a variety of stress-related illnesses, relationship difficulties as well as upset productivity and engagement.
    Take One Action Today To Build Your #Resiliency!      Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Stopping Sexual Harassment In The Workplace:
    Know that when faced with unwanted and unsolicited sexual harassment, victims feel confused, frustrated and angry. They may not know how to react to the situation and may become very anxious or depressed.
    Some employees will suffer the humiliation and harassment silently and when they can no longer take it, they will quietly quit.
    Not addressing sexual harassment in the workplace is bad business and can create a toxic environment.
    Education around sexual harassment and developing strong policies and procedures to deter it are the most effective means of minimizing its occurrence and impact.
    Companies can protect their employees, and create a positive workplace culture, by implementing a comprehensive policy and providing training to employees and leaders on that policy.
