Many of us have enjoyed time spent with loved ones over Christmas and new year, and returning to work is an unwelcome thought.

For many our colleagues working on the frontline, you might have spent the festive break continuing working shifts or longer hours, and would like to set some new goals for the new year. Keep reading for some of our tips to start your 2022:

Get talking

Keeping Well is here via live chat, telephone or email if you need a listening ear.

Talking to a family member or friend might make you feel a little better. You might find it easier to talk to a colleague too – you might be surprised to find out they are feeling similar to you! 

Plan your week ahead

By creating a weekly schedule or plan can help you feel more organised and be in control of your own work/life balance routine. Make sure you include some time to wind down, exercise, chat to friends or family members – it doesn’t have to all be about work!

Tip: Why not start our brand new wellbeing January challenge if you’re struggling to get started

Becoming more aware of the present moment can help us enjoy the world around us more and understand ourselves better. When we become more aware of the present moment, we begin to experience afresh things that we have been taking for granted.
