Anxious at work?
Mental Health Week 7th-13th Oct 2018
For some people the workplace can be a minefield of anxiety and stress.
Workplaces challenge us daily. There are the situations where you might expect some nerves, such a presentation to the CEO, or when a major deadline is looming. Sometimes we cruise through effortlessly, but at other times even the smallest issue can invoke extreme anxiousness. Ever got caught in the negative thought spiral and had the energy drain out of you? Sleepless nights? Short fuse?
How to Conquer the Winter Blues
It’s Mental Health Week and this year we are being asked…Do you see what I see? We often appear on the surface to have it all together. We are posting happy snaps on our social media profiles, we are turning up for work with a smile. But what is really going on underneath?
The second wave - It's great to be moving from reactive to proactive
For many of us, the colder mornings, the darker evenings and the rainy days tempt us to hide under the doona just a little longer than we normally would! While miserable weather is certainly a deterrent to leaving the comfort of your warm home, there is also some science behind that urge to stay in and keep hitting that snooze button.
Workplace Stress is on the Rise
Mental health awareness has come a long way since Mindful Employer started in 2010. People are now much more open to having the conversation. This is no longer something that happens to someone else. What we are seeing now, is what I describe as the second wave.

What does the result of the Marriage Equality Postal Survey mean for you as a Mindful Employer?
At times of significant social change, people will experience a wide range of different emotions. There is elation for some, disappointment and frustration for others. The strength of these reactions will vary, but for some, the result will have triggered some very powerful emotions. Whatever the experience, as we now move into the Parliamentary process, the discussions and reverberations, will continue.

Mental health support in the workplace
No two workplaces are the same. If you’re a trucking company, a library, a government department or a construction crew, your employees will have unique needs when it comes to workplace health and safety.
Mental health is no different. So for Mental Health Week 2016, we’re offering a curated suite of resources to suit your workplace.
Managing anxiety in the workplace
What do employees say about their workplace mental health support? What can organisations do to foster good mental health at work?
For some people the workplace can be a minefield of anxiety and stress. A task or situation that’s a ‘sinch’ for you may be spine-chilling for someone else.
Think of a presentation to your CEO. It might make you feel uncomfortable. It might be scary. But for one of your colleagues this situation could trigger their anxiety.
