What is Mental Fitness Week?
This October, in celebration of World Mental Health Day (10/10), MANTHAN will be providing companies a simple yet powerful introduction to life-changing concepts and techniques to help employees be more mentally fit, alert and resilient.
The 5-class series is practical and educational, fun and experiential with the basic series including short, 30-45 minute sessions* on the following topics:
1. Get out of the Matrix!
Shining a light on our unconscious physical and mental habits
2. A Wandering Mind is an Unhappy Mind
Research shows that happiness is inextricably linked to being present in the here and now. But why does the mind wander and how can we bring it back?
3. If you want less stress...Sit up Straight!
Better Posture = Less Anxiety → Why poor physical posture is causing us to be more stressed out and simple tips to undo these unhealthy postural habits
4. The World of Many Realities!
The truth is that we see the world through our eyes and these eyes are subject to a myriad of unconscious filters and biases. So how do we see the world through the eyes of others? How do we recognize and learn to accept that there are other viewpoints? And how does this ‘empathy’ help us in our relationships?
5. How to get a good night’s Sleep
Better mental and physical health start with better sleep. And it’s easier than you think to get a deeper and more restful sleep. Ready to learn how?
*sessions can be customized
What is Mental Health Day?
First observed in 1992, Mental Health Day was set up as an annual event on October 10 by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH).
“The overall objective of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health.“
Companies around the world are taking this opportunity to look at “mental health in the workplace”, a topic that has become even more critical as of late.
Now, more than ever
It is no secret that the far-reaching impact of the pandemic goes beyond simply shifting to working from home and learning how to use Zoom. For many of us, our daily routines, our home life and our all-important interpersonal relationships have all been thrown into chaos.
The result for many has been: loneliness, isolation, loss of connectivity, anxiety, and fear. With the continued extension of the state of emergency in many parts of the country, these feelings have started taking on more chronic patterns. Prevention through mental fitness is key to stemming the tide.
What can we do?
The answer is Mental Fitness. Mental fitness are routines and techniques that help make the mind more resilient to sudden shocks or changes in the environment. It is also a key component of overall Wellness.
Wellness routines support a healthy lifestyle. This can include everything from what we do first thing in the morning to a simple, daily 2-min meditation session. And just becoming aware of how helpful these routines can be and how easy they are to incorporate can change our lives.
So join us for Mental Fitness Week this October!
“You can’t buy peace of mind but you can train it.”
