How can YOU get involved and make a difference?
1. Book an EventWell Team Campfire Session
Schedule a day and time for an EventWell representative, trained in areas in wellbeing, stress management, mindfulness and mental health, to visit you and your team, at your office, for an informative team campfire discussion on wellbeing and mental health in the events industry.
Our campfire formats help to foster group discussion and peer-to-peer learning, and they are proven to improve engagement.
2. Then take the Time to Change Employer 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 employer pledge.
When you sign the Employer Pledge you demonstrate your commitment to change how we think and act about mental health in the workplace and make sure that employees who are facing these problems feel supported.
By signing the Pledge you will join a growing movement of more than 900 employers in England across all sectors from FTSE 100 companies and leading retailers to Government departments and local authorities.
3. Start thinking seriously 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
