Winter Health
11th December, 12.30-1.30pm

 

The winter months can bring a host of challenges when it comes to keeping fit and healthy. The cold weather and dark evenings can drive us into hibernation mode, cosily comfort eating and lacking in motivation to stay active.

We’re susceptible to the cold and flu viruses, and then comes December – often a month of gluttony that leaves us feeling heavy and run-down. In this interactive workshop session, you will learn how to balance the celebrations with a sustainably healthy approach, discover how to nourish yourself to boost your immune system and fight off illness, and consider how lifestyle factors can help to support overall health.

This session will be delivered by Adria Wu and Ollie Oshodi. Adria is a Natural Chef trained at Le Cordon Bleu and College of Naturopathic Medicine, she is Founder of Maple&Co and a presenter on Sunday Brunch. Ollie is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach passionate about supporting individuals to make healthier choices, lead more balanced lives and improve overall health and wellbeing. 

 

 

Rest & Reset
12th December, 12.45-1.30pm

 

Meditation is a way to achieve a greater sense of wellbeing, a clear and calm mind and better manage stress.

Join us for monthly guided meditations hosted by some of the UK’s leading practitioners, providing opportunity for you to Rest & Reset on your lunch break.

These 45 minute guided meditations are designed to support you in relaxing, releasing tension and breathing mindfully.  You’ll return to your desk feeling lighter, calmer and energised for the afternoon ahead. No experience is necessary.

The next session will be delivered by Emma Mills. Emma is a meditation expert and author of the book Inhale, Exhale, Repeat. She has a passion for sharing ideas for living well, inspired by the arts, psychology & meditation.

 

 

Cultivating Happiness
25th January, 12.30-1.30pm

 

We are all hardwired with a ‘negativity bias', something designed by evolution to keep us safe and alive by readily picking up on potential threats and embedding learning from bad experiences.

The good news is the brain is an organ and a muscle that can and will evolve through exercising and opening up to new experiences. The aim of this talk is to support you to grow your inner strengths and resilience, cultivate a more realistically optimistic outlook and positive sense of self-worth and wellbeing.

This session will be delivered by Samantha Clarke, a Happiness Consultant and Change Maker. Samantha’s passions are a melting pot of psychology, philosophy, technology, happiness, wellbeing, cultures and people. It's her mission to help companies and individuals by giving advice on the small things they can do to make a big difference and in particular on how to navigate the impact of technology on happiness. 

 

 

 

Cholesterol Checks
17th January, appointments available between 9am-6pm

 

Cholesterol is often tragically dubbed the ‘silent killer’ because for most people there are no obvious signs and symptoms to look out for. 

Cholesterol plays a vital role in how every cell works and is also needed to make Vitamin D, some hormones and bile for digestion. However, too much cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of getting heart and circulatory diseases.

 

These individual checks, undertaken by fully qualified medical professionals, are a quick & pain free pinprick blood test to confirm the amount of cholesterol in your blood. You will be provided with advice and guidance for how to lower and better manage cholesterol.

If your preferred time is not available then please email us at hello@work-well-being.com to be added to the waiting list.


Height, Weight, BMI and Blood Pressure
24th January, appointments available between 9am-6pm

 

Our height, weight, BMI and blood pressure are some of the most basic indicators of health, and yet for many of us, we’d be pushed to know what our statistics are!

Yet it is important to know, since raised BMI and height to weight ratios are associated with risk of diabetes and increased risk of heart disease, and high blood pressure is a significant risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

These individual checks, undertaken by fully qualified medical professionals, will provide you with an opportunity to understand your numbers, along with advice on how to manage this. 

If your preferred time is not available then please email us at hello@work-well-being.com to be added to the waiting list.


Having Better Conversations
21st February, 12.30-1.30pm

 

Everything is built on relationships, and the key to fostering good relationships is communication. Our ability to perform at peak depends on communicating well, and this means handling difficult conversations as well.

This talk shares how to manage those conversations without feeling overwhelmed, how to listen, and how to design alliances with people that will help you when things go wrong or bad news needs to be delivered. You will come away with a greater understanding of your impact on others, with the skills in active listening, and an understanding of how to improve collaboration and decrease conflict.

This session will be delivered by Fiona Buckland. Fiona is a Co-Active Life Coach, a fulbright scholar and published author, with a Ph.D. in Performance Studies and a Lecturer at The School of Life. Fiona is passionate about bringing our bodies and therefore our full selves into our lives and leadership.

Foods & Moods
22nd March, 12.30-1.30pm

 

Our relationship with food can be complex, and the foods we choose and how we eat are influenced not only by physical hunger cues and the need for nourishment, but also, how we are feeling.

Our foods can in return influence our moods - sugar and caffeine filled treats can provide an initial high, but inevitably they leave us crashing back down and feeling lethargic. In this session, you’ll learn about foods that can support you to feel more grounded and balanced, and come away with an appreciation of how lifestyle imbalances can lead to emotional cravings that we fill with food, and alternative approaches to this. 

This session will be delivered by Adria Wu and Ollie Oshodi. Adria is a Natural Chef trained at Le Cordon Bleu and College of Naturopathic Medicine, she is Founder of Maple&Co and a presenter on Sunday Brunch. Ollie is a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach passionate about supporting individuals to make healthier choices, lead more balanced lives and improve overall health and wellbeing.
