The OED provides this handy definition: ‘Well-being – the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy.’ I’d like to suggest all three are often possible.
If you are considering introducing a wellness program to your organisation, you may be baffled with all the new terminology, definitions and concepts you have to get your head around. I’ve put together a handy reference guide.
Workplace wellness considerations:
Emotional well-being – not allowing your staff to become so stressed that their health and work suffers.
Psychological well-being – being aware of different needs of staff with stress and/or mental health issues.
Staff/employee well-being – a generic term to cover all the ideas in this report.
Physical well-being – being in good physical health.
‘Wellness’ – being in a state of good physical and psychological health.
Health promotion – promoting ways in which staff can be healthier.
These goals can be met by:
• Management policies and practice encouraging wellness
• Following health and safety procedures
• Medical testing and treatment where necessary
Complementary therapies such as:
• NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming)
• EFT (tapping)
