Q. How can YOU get involved and make a difference?
A. It’s simple…
Are you an organisation? – Take the Stress Matters pledge!
Our research has shown that 1 in 3 event professionals will suffer from a period of mental ill health at some point in their careers, so it’s hugely important that we unite as an industry to make tangible change that is backed by the messaging, vision and values of #EventWell, and the first step is by taking the Stress Matters pledge.
The Stress Matters Pledge guides employers on how they can take action to reduce the stress that they have knowingly or unknowingly put their team under. We understand the gravity of the challenge in transforming an industry with a culture of stress and we know that we need your support, individual by individual, employer by employer, to change the culture.
Changing stress from being inevitable, and therefore acceptable, to managed and minimised.
Are you an individual? – Start thinking about your self-care
Get active and make a personal pledge to start taking better care of YOU!
Sign up to do a challenge event, start a new exercise class, try mindfulness techniques, or simply do more of the things that you enjoy.
Whatever best suits YOU, it’s time to think differently about your physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing, and that of your colleagues and loved ones, here are some ideas to get you started:
- Walk or cycle to work
- Cut down on alcohol or quit smoking
- Swap coffee for water or decaf
- Eat 4-5 portions of fruit and veg a day
- Aim to get 7-9 hours sleep a night
- Maintain your social life
- Start regular exercise
- Cut down on sugary snacks and drinks
We want to hear from you; share your activities on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with the hashtags #EventWell #TimeForAction and we’ll repost and share them for you.
