This course explores a range of simple and highly practical steps that individuals can take to promote their wellbeing in the workplace. It recognises the unique challenges faced by those in education and considers some tried and tested strategies for overcoming these. Each module ends with a challenge – these are simple small actions which should be relatively easy to execute and which will enable you to take a step in the right direction. For example, can you find a few precious minutes to sit down and focus on eating your lunch… without talking about work? Challenge accepted?
