How do ideas like Faith, Hope, and Love, play into wellbeing in the workplace? How can we help ourselves and our colleagues to work more harmoniously? How do we find meaning and fulfilment in work and life when times are hard?
In today’s world, mental health and wellbeing are as big a topic as physical health. There are dozens of apps, retreat centres, counselling services, books, documentaries and seminars all focused on mindfulness and de-stressing our busy lives. Particularly in London, we can frequently find ourselves in high-pressured and face paced environments, not only at work but in our home lives as well. So how do we as Christians deal with the impact this can have on our spiritual and mental health?
I have a background in Psychology, so some of the theories we discussed at the last Everyday Workplace event were familiar to me, and may be to you as well – physical needs vs creative needs, the importance of social relationships and positive mental attitudes – but it was encouraging to take these concepts and investigate deeper from a Christian perspective. You don’t need to be a Psychology expert to follow along. The sessions were engaging, interactive, super informative and easily applicable. I’m really looking forward to the next event this year and would highly recommend to anyone to come along!
