It's easy to create health and happiness daily, even in our busy, and often stressful lives. The workshops are broken down into sections delivering hands-on practical activity, group work and worksheets which allow us to regain control of our life, health, energy levels and mood.
Workshops & Talks
To empower individuals to improve their health, happiness and quality of life by doing simple, easy-to-accomplish tasks. We do this by offering knowledge about various healthy lifestyle choices at home, at work and at play. From 'Sit Straight' office ergonomics, 'Powerful Posture', to recovering from sports injuries ('Pain & Performance'), 'Health in High Heels', and how to 'Keep Fit When You Sit'. We share what can/needs to be improved, why it is a problem, and doable how-steps, so they can achieve better outcomes.
The goal of a well-designed office and workstations for employees is to improve health (reduced illness and injury), happiness (job satisfaction) and productivity. However, even with fancy chairs or height adjustable sit-stand desks, humans are a creature of habit. We sit on expensive multi-adjustable seats the same way we would if we sat on a sofa or a stool.
This is why posture and ergonomic assessments and workshops are essential. We can gather information that pinpoints habits that cause strain on the human system, causing problems like headaches, neck and shoulder aches, back pain or numbness in the arms and hands.
An ergonomic workstation assessment involves a detailed assessment of an individual’s work environment including their computer, keyboard and mouse, desk and chair. The outcome: Find and Solve risk factors that may lead to future health problems, or be causing current health problems - a common cause of reduced productivity, employee dissatisfaction and time off work.
