Recognise and combat stress

The road to resilience
Cope with—and master—pressure
Pressure is a great motivator. But, like stress, too much of it in the wrong place can make life hard. You have your limits—we all do. But what can we do to turn those limits into strengths?
Health Assured offers training in resilience. This is a great way to learn about how pressure affects you and others, and how to better manage that pressure.
The workshop provides the mental tools needed to master workplace pressure. You’ll see less absence, more productivity and a healthier, happier workforce.
- What does it really mean to be resilient?
- Awareness of resilience
- Techniques to manage pressure and improve resilience in the workplace
Adopt mindfulness, become a beacon of calm
Mindfulness is the art of living in the present. It might sound odd—we all live in the present, surely—but it’s a little deeper than it seems.
It’s about learning to be aware of our senses. And when you’re fully aware, you can deal with challenges far more easily.
We offer mindfulness training that will help your people maintain calm and improve their life’s balance. You’ll learn how to give your full attention to the now, melting away stress and coping with anything life can throw at you.
Meditation, breathing exercises and planning—these tools are vital to a healthy, aware, balanced work life.
- What is mindfulness and the common misconceptions
- How and when mindfulness can be used
- How to put mindfulness into practice
Better living through better eating
You might feel more awake after a triple espresso in the morning—but overloading on caffeine isn’t the best way to stay alert. A couple of hours later you’re going to pay for that delicious drink. Ever felt that post-lunchtime slump?
We will help make that tiredness a thing of the past. Healthy eating in the workplace boosts alertness—and morale—by making people feel more alive. It’s not about taking snacks (or coffee) away, but being aware of which foods are better.
Health Assured’s nutrition workshops teach the importance of healthy eating, both at work and at home. We show you how to improve energy and concentration without resorting to more caffeine.
Stress, sickness and absence can be reduced—when your employees are healthy, your workplace is healthy.

Coping with change
Make dealing with change a breeze
Change is necessary. Every business needs to react to the world outside. Sometimes, you need to make sweeping changes. You might need to create or alter a whole department.
This can be a stressful and uncertain time for employees. How can you offer reassurance?
Our change management workshop helps staff to understand and cope with change. We explain how to recognise uncertainty, how to raise concerns and how to manage stress in times of change.
You’ll be able to reduce impact by addressing any worries staff may have—and make sure your changes will be for the better.

It’s simple. Our mental health awareness workshop provides you and your people with the knowledge needed to tackle issues head-on. You’ll receive expert, sensitive guidance on identifying key mental health issues.

What is trauma?
Preparedness for the unexpected
It’s a hard fact of life that awful things can happen. We all live in hope that they won’t happen to us, but sometimes an incident in the workplace affects us all. How do you show support and leadership in these times?
Health Assured can help. We offer a thorough trauma workshop—teaching your staff to recognise what trauma is, and how to cope. You’ll learn how to create a supportive culture, helping each other deal with traumatic stress.

Mental health & men
Understand male mental health
Times are changing. The stigmas around male mental health are starting to fade. It’s no longer a perceived sign of weakness to admit that you need help.
But sometimes a little encouragement is needed for men to open up.
Our mental health & men workshop gives insight, knowledge and understanding of the issues that men face. We use facts, figures and truths to gently de-stigmatise mental health issues, teaching you and your staff that it’s fine to admit that life can get on top of you.
