This week we’re heading all the way to Germany to chat with Michael Wieden, the founder of Aliamos, a company that works with organisations to improve the health and well-being of employees by taking into consideration the unique biological rhythms of individuals.
Things we discuss:
1. What is chronobiology, and why is it important for shift workers to understand its significance? 2. What are chronotypes and how do they influence our ability to work specific shifts? 3. How incorporating plant-based food options into workplace canteens is improving the health of employees. 4. Why the mindset of the employer is key in rolling out successful health and wellbeing programs.
In this week’s episode Audra chat’s with Chiropractor, International Speaker and Business Coach Dr Laurence Tham, on all things to do with improving our shift working resilience – from a mindset perspective.
Whilst it’s not a topic often discussed, Laurence shares some of his “mindset wisdom” on how we can improve our health and wellbeing both in and out of the workplace by simply changing our mindset along which includes adjusting our ‘filters’, in other words, how we see the world.
Some of Laurence’s Golden Tips from the podcast include:
Knowing what you can change, and what you can’t, as outlined in the Serenity Prayer:
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
Make sleep your priority. It needs to be valuable to you.
Taking care of yourself FIRST.
Be responsible for everything!
