Mental Health: Health and Wellness Strategies
The workplace is one of the key environments that affect our mental well-being and our health. While there is an acknowledgement and growing awareness of the role of the workplace in promoting or hindering mental wellness, employees can also take their own steps towards mental fitness.
This course will empower you to improve your own mental well-being by building a strong resilience to stress – a process referred to as mental fitness. Through learning how to leverage the power of the body’s response to stress and by practicing specific lifestyle habits, you can elevate your health and performance while effectively managing high levels of stress.
Upon completion of the course you will be able to:
- Recognize your signs, symptoms and sources of stress
- Describe the impact that stress has on your health and performance
- Define mental fitness and specific ways to improve and maintain it
- Elevate your health and performance through lifestyle habits that promote mental well-being.
Average time to complete this course is approximately one hour.
