By Aaron Allen, The Seattle Medium

Kyra Gaines, owner of the new Wellness Gaines Fitness Center in Renton, is a shining example of achieving something you believe is possible. Gaines, who opened the doors to her business last weekend, has worked in the fitness industry for years and after watching friends and colleagues start their own businesses, she decided to venture out on her own.

For Gaines, a former track and field athlete at Eastern Washington University, fitness and physical health have always been a way of life and an opportunity to turn her passion into a business.

“I’m a big believer in praying to manifest the things I desire,” Gaines says. “I really started to visualize what my studio would look like. And so, it’s kind of crazy but that’s how it works, you start thinking about it, you meditate on it and it happens.

Wellness Gaines Fitness Center is a comprehensive holistic wellness center that not only focuses on building the body, but also provides mental and spiritual well-being. In addition to having an open gym that allows people to work out on their own, Wellness Gaines offers three different programs: Flow Gaines, Steel Gaines, and HIIT Gaines.

HIIT GAINES is a combination of short, very high intensity cardio exercises followed by equal or longer rest periods. Think 30 seconds to a minute of sprinting, followed by a minute or two of slow walking or jogging. The benefits of HIIT GAINES include calorie burning, weight loss, and muscle building. HIIT GAINES can also help you lower blood pressure and blood sugar, while improving oxygen and blood circulation.

STEEL GAINES offers a different type of training using dynamic movements targeting almost all aspects of fitness: endurance, strength, balance, agility and cardio endurance.

“People love [STEEL GAINES] because it’s hard,” says Gaines. “It’s efficient and you only need one piece of equipment.

“STEEL GAINES can help you lose weight because the exercises can use up to 600 muscles at once, which increases calorie burning, increases your metabolic rate and boosts your cardio,” adds Gaines. Training with kettlebells can also produce an afterburn effect resulting in additional calorie burning for 24 hours.

FLOW GAINES is a yoga workout that works on the body, mind, emotions and energy. It’s a gentle way to improve your posture, balance and coordination. Yoga has been shown to improve quality of life, reduce stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression and back pain. It has also been found to lower heart rate and blood pressure. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, yoga has been shown to improve fitness, strength, and flexibility.

“I just wanted to provide a space that was designed to help people be more of themselves,” says Gaines. “Not just physically but mentally and that’s something we’ve always pushed [as a] message. It’s something we preach and teach and in my own life I live.

Kyra’s dad, Ronnie Gaines, not only watched his daughter turn her dream into reality, he also helped her build it — literally.

According to Kyra Gaines, the property where the gym is located had been vacant for some time and needed renovations to facilitate her dream.

“Years ago it was a Bally gym,” says Gaines. “Fortunately, my dad is an entrepreneur and so together he helped me put it together.”

Ronnie Gaines said it was important that he approached the project strictly from a professional rather than a personal perspective.

“When we [Kyra and myself] sat and talked, I was acting strictly as an entrepreneur and not as a father,” says Ronnie. “Because if I was trying to be both, knowing myself, I might have tried to take her vision and I wanted it to remain her vision not mine, so I came to her as as client/contractor in a total business relationship.”

Although she was driven by determination and faith, the journey to opening her business was not without its challenges. With an idea to open his business predating COVID, Gaines had to wait until the coast cleared before embarking on his dream.

“Having to wait was my biggest challenge,” recalls Gaines. “Waiting for contractors, waiting for equipment and waiting for necessary things was probably the hardest part of it all.”

Physical and mental well-being is the fundamental foundation that Gaines wants to provide for his community, especially people of color. Gaines believes mental and physical well-being is a conversation everyone should have with themselves and others with the goal of improving their lives.

“In the future, I plan to talk more about mental and physical health,” Gaines says. “It’s something we can never get enough of and have these conversations [is important]. My instructors and clients know that if [they’re] having a hard time is a safe space to come and talk with someone, move your body, sweat it out, but also know that you have a friend here and it’s not just about room business sport.”

Her dad agrees and says he’s proud to be by his daughter’s side right now.

“I feel good about it, it’s always been a dream, an aspiration for her,” says Ronnie. “To see her dream come true, it’s always been a dream about it for quite some time and she’s always been in good shape and to see it unfold is a blessing.”

JERUSALEM — Israel has eased access to abortion in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wadea decision which, according to the country’s health minister, set back women’s rights by “a hundred years”.

The new policy, approved by an overwhelming majority in the parliamentary committee on Monday, will grant women access to abortion pills through Israel’s universal health care system and exempt women from appearing before a special committee, including the Approval has been required for decades to terminate a pregnancy.

The commission, made up of a social worker and two doctors, will not be abolished, but it will review the files digitally and only hold hearings in the very rare case where it initially refuses the procedure. The changes will come into effect over the next three months.

US abortion ruling sparks cheers and horror overseas

Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz, leader of Israel’s small left-wing Meretz party, said on Monday that the US decision reversing Roe vs. Wade violated women’s basic human rights and this reform would ensure that Israel would not follow in its footsteps.

“The United States Supreme Court’s decision to deny a woman the right to her body is a grim decision,” Horowitz said in a statement. “We are somewhere else and we are making great strides in the right direction today.”

World leaders from all political walks of life have called the United States a cautionary tale of how basic rights can be lost. Centre-left Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted that the decision was “awful”. Right-wing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it was “clearly having massive impacts on the thinking of people around the world” and called it a “big step backwards”.

Israel’s reform allows women, for the first time, to have abortions at their local health centers, rather than hospitals or surgical clinics.

Israel’s 1977 Abortion Law stipulates four criteria for termination of pregnancy: whether the woman is under 18 or over 40; if the fetus is in danger; if the pregnancy is the result of rape, incest or “illicit union”, including extramarital relations; and whether the woman’s mental or physical health is at risk.

About 98 percent of those who seek an abortion receive one, according to Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics.

But the requirement to appear first before a government committee that has been influenced for decades by ultra-Orthodox politicians has long caused unease in a largely unorthodox Israeli society, which has for years felt the dominance of conservatives on issues such as childbirth, divorce, marriage and other aspects of family law.

Horowitz, the health minister, said the questionnaire women submit before appearing before the commission was riddled with “degrading” and “chauvinistic” questions like, “Why didn’t you use birth control?”

“Issues that don’t concern anyone, certainly not the state,” Horowitz said. “Clearly they were written from a chauvinistic view that a woman’s judgment cannot be trusted.”

Abortion has long been widely available and has never been a hot topic in Israel. Ultra-Orthodox politicians who have opposed it have also historically deferred to the norms of Jewish law, or Halakha, which neither prohibits nor condones the practice.

Jewish law generally prioritizes the health – physical and psychological – of the mother and varies widely in its classification of the fetus as human life, with most rabbis agreeing that the first 40 days equate “to a menstrual cycle”, said Yuval Cherlow, a rabbi and director of the Tzohar Center for Jewish Ethics.

Cherlow said the new regulations, while a departure from the past, were still “consistent with halachic frameworks.”

But abortion rights advocates fear the development is reversible, given the ongoing state of political upheaval in Israel. The country is gearing up for its fifth election in less than four years, in which right-wing former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who ruled for 15 years with ardent support from ultra-Orthodox parties, is plotting a comeback.

Netanyahu’s base has included ultra-Orthodox politicians and community leaders who have – in a rare move in Israel – likened abortion to murder.

The Supreme Court turns the United States into a cautionary tale

Daphna Hacker, professor of women’s and gender studies at Tel Aviv University, said abortion access advocates are aware that elections scheduled for November could bring the most conservative politicians back into the fray. in government and would risk exacerbating the decades-long national identity crisis between Israel’s democratic and Jewish character — putting women’s rights in the crosshairs.

“On the one hand, Israel, as one of the first countries in the world, granted equality to women,” she said. “But this is the same country where much of the law of the land dates back 2,000 years. This dilemma is in our DNA.

Lio Rush wants fans to remember this isn’t ballet.

Lio Rush has toured the world during his professional wrestling career. Along with the promotions he’s been part of, Rush is perhaps one of the most notable examples of a Forbidden Door talent. Rush is currently sidelined with an injury he suffered earlier this year.

In a new interview with Fightful, Lio Rush talked about how fans need to understand that sometimes wrestlers need a break.

“I think it’s questioned. Which I guess is understandable as a fan. But at the same time, I feel like a lot of the fans are so used to seeing us do what we do. that they forget that it’s so stressful on your body and your mind. We are humans. We are human beings. At the end of the day, sometimes we need breaks and if we are lucky enough to be able to take these breaks, I think we should do it. I’ve never hesitated to walk away when I felt it was necessary. But yeah, I’ve seen some things said in the past about ” his heart” or “it’s frustrating to be a Lio Rush fan” and to that I just say, “Well then you’re not really a fan”. You’re not a fan of me if you think It’s frustrating. I feel like if you’re a real fan of me, you’ll understand and accept the things I need to do to keep doing what I love to do. S If I feel like I have to walk away to come back, then that’s what I have to do. I’m not bothered by that, though. I understand. Social media being one thing and being involved and such a thing and having the lives of wrestlers in front of you 24/7, but at the same time, it’s okay. It’s OK. There are a lot of wrestlers here. I dropkick, next person dropkicks. I’m sorry if mine is better and you miss it every day, but I’ll be back. I promise.”

Lio Rush at Fightful

Rush provided a poignant reminder that the grueling nature of professional wrestling is nothing to scoff at. It’s unclear when Rush will return to the ring, but he’s determined to look his best when he does.

Do you hate exercise? 4 Ways to Make Workouts More Enjoyable https://moorplasticsurgery.com/do-you-hate-exercise-4-ways-to-make-workouts-more-enjoyable/ Fri, 24 Jun 2022 21:00:02 +0000 https://moorplasticsurgery.com/do-you-hate-exercise-4-ways-to-make-workouts-more-enjoyable/ When working out feels like a chore, it can be incredibly difficult to maintain a consistent routine, no matter how disciplined and motivated you are.

When working out feels like a chore, it can be incredibly difficult to maintain a consistent routine, no matter how disciplined and motivated you are. But exercise doesn’t have to be miserable. By tailoring your workouts to your preferences, you can have fun while getting in shape.

Haley Perlus is a sports and exercise psychologist, fitness trainer, and author. She says that to find the exercise you love, you need to ask yourself what you already love.

“It’s really more, what do you like to do? And what already gives you energy?” said Perlus. “There are hundreds of different exercise programs. We can find one that already satisfies your current love.”

For example, if you are a social person who likes or needs the company of others to exercise, find classes where you can feel the energy of others or even work out with friends (which could be via online classesas through a ApplePlus subscription). If you’re someone who’s driven by a healthy dose of competition, sign up for a 5K or another run, she says, giving yourself a goal to work toward.

And if you like learning new things, says Perlus, “Don’t get on a treadmill because you already know how to walk right-left, right-left.”

Likewise, if you like to be outdoors, do not exercise indoors, she says. Whatever your boat, there’s probably a drill for it, and with a little trial and error, you can find a routine you’re proud (and happy) to call your own.

Resistance exercises for people who don’t like to lift weights

Resistance or strength training and keeping your body strong is an important part of our physical health, especially as we age. It’s often associated with bulky weight racks at the gym, but when it comes to strength training or strength training, you don’t need anything in your hands.

“Body resistance is the best,” Perlus says, noting that she prefers body resistance to actual weightlifting. For strength training using only your body (which sounds pretty powerful, by the way), add resistance by placing your body at different angles, according to Perlus. For example, do push-ups against the wall if you don’t need a lot of resistance and change the angle for more. Squats, lunges, planks, and yoga are great ways to stay strong without the intimidating feel of gym weights. Just make sure you’re using good form, she says.

Find cardio if you hate running

Perlus calls our “I hate” narrative bluff.

“We really have to tackle the ‘I hate it,'” says Perlus. “Why do you say you hate? What’s the story behind it all? Because sometimes we can reframe that story. »

One way is to realize that running is not necessary for cardio. Dancing around your house can be just as healthy as long as you make your heart beat. There are many other ways to do cardio, including jumping jacks, hiking, and riding an elliptical trainer. Circuit training can also be more fun if you choose which exercises to rotate. Don’t want to jump rope? Choose a different exercise.

Importantly, says Perlus, you don’t need to do cardio for long. “It’s actually more quality than quantity,” she says, and the goal is to get your heart rate up.

By incorporating what you love into your workout routine, like music, you can create habits for life.

Still don’t like it?

So you’ve taken inventory of what you love to do for a living and found a workout routine that reflects it. If you’ve had a “good try at college” and you’re still not having a good time, Perlus says, the next step is to figure out what you don’t like about the routine you’re doing and find some. another one. specifically addresses this issue.

Another tip from Perlus: don’t wait until you’re at the gym (or ready to dance in your living room) to start motivating yourself. Music is a great way to motivate yourself. Learn more about a science-backed workout playlist trick.

Make your routine sustainable

We have heard of “yo-yo diet“, but “yo-yo exercise” is also to be avoided, Perlus says. .” For this reason, she encourages people who are just starting their exercise journey going out seven days a week, taking a little time out each day. Although it sounds daunting, it doesn’t mean “high intensity” every day, she said. Rather, it’s just a way to form a routine. If walking is your chosen exercisetake a leisurely walk one day and brisk walk the next, but make time in your schedule for that.

If you’ve decided to add exercise to your routine and change your life that way, it’s important to meet where you are. (Shaming yourself or your body is not an effective motivator to exercise.) To do this, Perlus says to ask yourself two questions: What have I achieved today? with my health and what should I do next?

This could mean getting up every hour from your desk to move around, or walking your dog. It could also mean that you stretched for 5 minutes while watching TV.

The focus of your efforts should be, says Perlus, “on what you accomplish and what you obtain to do next, in relation to what you have to do next.”

DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) – First responders in the Quad City area have been battling emergencies in near-record heat for the past two weeks.

Keeping first responders safe in extreme heat can seem like a simple task: keep them hydrated and give them breaks.

However, for the Davenport Fire Department, Chief Mike Carlsten said it all starts before an emergency occurs.

“We ask all of our employees to maintain good physical health, make sure they stay hydrated throughout their shifts so they are prepared,” Carlsten said. “[When] we have any event, whether it is a fire, a hazmat call, a technical rescue, all of these events are very labor intensive.

During the summer months, the strategy for extinguishing a fire remains the same, what changes is the manpower required for a specific response.

“Our tactics really don’t change,” Carlsten said. “We know this creates a greater load on the fire corps, so we make sure to rotate the firefighters through a quick rotation.”

These rotations allow firefighters to hydrate, cool off and have their vital signs checked by EMS before they can return to work.

Carlsten said rural communities may find it difficult to keep firefighters safe and cool in the heat.

“We’re very lucky we have minimal staff here in the town of Davenport,” Carlsten said. “Some of your other volunteers or small communities may not have as many people at the scene of a fire that they can actually rehabilitate and resume the duty cycle of fighting the fire. “

Depending on the day and the task, staff turnover can be faster, especially when heat indices reach triple digits.

“Usually in the winter months we can go ahead and do a cycle or two of work before we actually have to go to rehab,” Carlsten said. “During these hot weather conditions, we need to shorten our work cycles so we don’t overheat the individual, and then give them more time to actually be in this rehab environment.”

Ambulances and firefighters keep a full stock of water bottles each time a firefighter or paramedic begins a rehab cycle.

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit over two years ago, gym owners wondered what the future would look like.

Get Fit NH owner Meagan Baron was in a particularly difficult position as she realized early on in the pandemic that her business, in its current state, would struggle to rebound.

Baron, owner of the Concord club for six years, could not safely reopen his group training. His space was only 400 square feet, which didn’t make him big enough to adequately distance his limbs.

She decided to take a big step forward and moved into a 10,000 square foot space equipped with huge garage doors at both ends for good air circulation.

“The move was definitely a blessing in disguise,” Baron said. “I look at space now and wonder how I could have operated before.”

Over the past 1.5 years in the new location, Get Fit NH’s membership has steadily increased and is now over 300.

With the extra space, Baron is now able to offer its growing membership services like physiotherapy and a dietician.

Its growth and subsequent increase in foot traffic coincides with a national trend that has seen gym visits increase over the past 12 months.

Baron said 300 members was her goal when she started the business. “I’ve just been cleaning this up for the last three months. And I still see steady growth.

People are tired of online workout options so they choose to search gym communities and open new memberships. All of this has led to an increase in gym memberships nationwide, according to an analysis of analytics from Placer Lab, a software company that uses foot traffic to decipher trends. The report revealed that in the fourth quarter of 2021, there was a 2.5% increase in memberships compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, just before the start of the pandemic.

“I failed the exercise”

The new larger space at Get Fit NH has allowed members like Kate Fox to come back and be part of the gym community again.

As the world began to change in March 2020 with the onset of the pandemic, Fox’s life also took a turn when she was tasked with the enormous task of caring for her elderly mother while continuing to work. full time. More than ever, she needed Get Fit NH, of which she has been a member for 11 years.

“I missed the togetherness. I missed the exercise,” said Fox, 62, who now lives in Vermont but still visits Concord and Get Fit NH a few days a week.

Baron thinks more and more people are coming back to the gym for more than physical training. She noted that the pandemic has taken a mental toll on many. The mental release from a workout or the camaraderie is just as important as a toned or toned body.

“People come here for their emotional and mental health as much as their physical health,” she said. “There’s more emphasis on it in gyms – more than ever. I said throughout our shutdown: People need people. :

The same desire has new members reaching out.

“I think the pressure for people to start something stemmed more from mental and emotional stress than from their physical health,” Baron said. “It’s a very gratifying feeling, that’s for sure.”

The River Valley Club in Lebanon has not reached its pre-pandemic numbers. The club currently has just over 1,700 members, up from 3,000 at the end of January 2020. Still, owner Elizabeth Asch believes her business is moving in the right direction thanks to changes made since March 2020.

The club has built an outdoor area for training and lessons, is now offering free memberships to those aged 90 and over and, like most clubs, has been adamant about cleanliness.

“We turned over every stone to think about what we can do. It was really about staying in business,” Asch said. “People wanted to train. I wanted to show the community that we are committed to growing even in difficult times, in order to meet their needs.

This was evident during the club’s four-month closure at the start of the pandemic when employees at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center – which is across from River Valley – were given a free subscription that included live, online classes. A few hundred members joined in the first two days, and many continued their membership after the four months.

Asch has also started collaborating with other club owners – unheard of before the pandemic – to share ideas and initiatives to help everyone thrive.

“I think we’re better than ever, ‘because we’re listening more and because we’re more involved in the community,’ Asch said.

A shift in concerns

Jamie and Kristen Brause have opened their fitness studio, Hungry Hearts Gym + Kitchen, in New London at exactly the right time.

The couple moved from Cambridge, Massachusetts with the goal of giving the community a place where they can work out and learn the importance of healthy eating with on-site nutrition, cooking classes and take-out meal.

The idea caught on. Hungry Hearts eclipsed 100 members in the first three months after opening in August 2021, coinciding with the national trend of increased gym visits. The gymnasium currently has 130 members.

“Our membership has grown steadily since day one and it hasn’t been any different in recent months,” said Kristen Brause, who is responsible for the nutrition side of the business. “We continue to see more and more walk-ins, scheduled consultations and new members. There hasn’t been a week in the past two months that we haven’t welcomed several new members.

Brause agreed with trends and surveys that people just want to get back to the gym, caring less about masks and Covid policies. Thanks to vaccines and the clubs’ focus on cleanliness, members can focus on their health.

“I think part of the continued increase is because the first questions people ask are no longer, ‘What are your policies on masks and vaccines?’ but rather, ‘What is your philosophy and approach and how can you help me achieve my goals?’ Brause said. “We can now discuss directly what we are doing here and how we can help.”

People are now basing their decision to join on what Hungry Hearts offers. While health and cleanliness are still a priority, it’s nice to be able to focus on basic services again, Brause said.

“That was one of the hardest parts of opening our business when we did that,” she said.

Grants are available to support mental and physical health initiatives, infrastructure projects, and business/nonprofit COVID-19 recovery efforts.

Experts will review applications in each category to develop recommendations to present to Cumberland County Commissioners, who have the final say on how ARPA funds are allocated, said County Planning Director Kirk Stoner. .

“There’s a lot of interest,” he said. “We have several requests every day.” In addition to responding to emails, Stoner attended about 20 meetings with potential applicants interested in grants in the infrastructure category.

“I’m just answering their questions about what may or may not make an app more competitive,” Stoner said. “We don’t want to set up a grant process and not provide guidance on how best to complete the application. I can tell from the meetings that the candidates appreciate that.

Because ARPA funding must be spent by the end of 2026, the county will consider projects that are ready to move forward within four years, Stoner said.

The county also requires a 30% match for all grants, except for mental and physical health services, which require no match. Applicants may request a waiver of the match requirement based on financial need and other criteria.

The county is considering a mid-to-late summer announcement for the grants, Stoner said.

“A lot of things are unknown,” he said. “We don’t know how many requests we will receive. Based on the number of emails, we believe we will get a substantial response. We want to make sure we have enough time to give everyone a fair and equitable look at the requests. That’s why we really don’t have a date set.


Spending per student in Pennsylvania hits record high of $19,900

On Monday, there was no predetermined allocation for each of the three grant categories, Stoner said. “We want to see the number of applications we receive overall and the impact of those proposals.”

From there, a judgment can be made to allocate a certain amount of money per category or base recommendations on the projects that have the most impact, regardless of category.

The American Rescue Plan Act was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Joe Biden on March 11, 2021. This legislation includes $350 billion in state and local fiscal stimulus funds for states, counties and local governments eligible.

Of the $350 billion, Cumberland County received $49,214,152. In September, commissioners approved the allocation of $2.5 million from ARPA to three local higher education institutions, awarding $1.4 million to Central Penn College, $600,000 to Messiah University and $500,000 to Shippensburg University.

Since then, the county has gathered information on how to allocate the remaining $46.7 million. Sources include focus group contributions, a public inquiry process, and networking of staff members in various county departments.

Officials used this input to formulate the following main objectives for the fund balance:

• Improve the physical and mental health of county residents directly or indirectly affected by COVID-19.

• Revitalize communities in Cumberland County negatively impacted by COVID-19.

• Restoring and delivering government services hampered, delayed or canceled by COVID-19.

Applicants can apply for grants online at www.ccpa.net/CCRG. Those who have questions or need help completing an application can send their questions and contact information to refreshcumberland@ccpa.net.

Historically, we have always admired professional athletes for their physical strength without necessarily considering the mental toughness it takes to compete at the highest level. But last year, Naomi Osaka made us take notice when she pulled out of the French Open to take care of her mental health. Shortly after, gymnast Simone Biles voluntarily sat out several events at the Tokyo Olympics, sparking a global discussion about mental health and performance – a discussion equally relevant to the business world as it is to sport.

Following Naomi and Simone’s brave vulnerability, more athletes have spoken out about their own personal struggles, using their platform and influence to bring attention to this important topic and, in some cases, breaking away from the game to support their Mental Health. . While there have been a few examples of CEOs publicly disconnecting from their jobs for similar reasons, sports pros surpass us, perhaps unsurprisingly, with tennis player Ashleigh Barty, surfer Gabriel Medina and racing driver Lewis Hamilton, all citing mental health as reasons for stepping back, just in the past few months.

strength stereotype

As a former Division 1 college athlete, I can confirm that the dynamics in sports that can trigger mental health issues are in some ways relatively similar to the pressures in business. Unrealistic expectations of perfection, public pressure to succeed, continuous focus on reaching the next milestone, and the assumption that you can always outperform your competition are just some of the daily stressors that any ambitious leader faces. is confronted. Coupled with pandemic-induced stressors that have altered workplace wellness expectations, leaders are not only responsible for delivering business results, but also for supporting the mental health of their internal teams while presenting a positive example to their employees.

The pervasive narrative, in both sport and business, is that the most successful leaders demonstrate strength, power and an inscrutable mental resilience. This stereotype is not only unrealistic, it is inauthentic and quite frankly dangerous. Everyone is susceptible to stress, and after two years of battling a global pandemic, it’s more common than ever. In fact, the Worth Health Organization reports that the global prevalence of anxiety and depression increased by 25% in the first year of the Covid-19 pandemic, and based on our own study, we found that almost half (47%) said they felt more stress and anxiety during Covid-19 than at any other time in their lives.

We all have mental health, just like we all have physical health, and everyone’s mental health varies depending on what’s going on in their life. Some may be struggling with a clinical diagnosis like anxiety, depression or OCD, but everyone can be affected by stressful times associated with major life events, job changes or relationship troubles. , not to mention an unprecedented global health crisis and the threat of global war. It’s all part of the mental health spectrum, and if we’re going to make progress in dispelling the stigma, we as business leaders need to be championing conversations on every point of that spectrum.

Lead with vulnerability

Despite the rise in mental health issues, stigma persists when it comes to discussing it at work. Our study with Forrester found that most managers (63%) and more than half (57%) of employees felt affected by the past few years, but had to cut it out of their work lives.

The only way to fight stigma is to allow open conversations about mental wellbeing at work, but it has to start at the top. More CEOs should start to recognize the need to take care of their own mental health, whether that means taking time off, scheduling visible therapy appointments, avoiding working after hours, or simply to recognize the support they need. I’ve made a habit of sharing my feelings about company-wide burnout and passing on any tactics that help me in the moment – right now it’s working, but just like our changes in When it comes to mental health, our coping methods change over time.

In order to truly encourage employees to be open about their mental health at work, we need to lead by example and create a culture of psychological safety where vulnerable conversations are normalized. In addition to sharing our own personal struggles as leaders, we need to check in with our teams. Every company has employees who are constantly working hard to get the job done, but just like star athletes, these team members need rest. Leaders should celebrate team wins by encouraging self-care and time off to recharge before returning to work.

No one would ask an athlete to compete if they have a sprained ankle, a broken wrist, or any other physical ailment. And even if the depression and anxiety aren’t visible, the impacts can be just as debilitating as a physical injury. Athletes like Osaka have led by example, demonstrating how the decline in mental health care is a sign of strength rather than weakness. Their vulnerability has opened up conversations about this traditionally taboo subject, which is particularly important for young athletes facing the pressures of competition during their formative years.

Like so many others, I grew up admiring professional athletes. I put them on a pedestal and considered them heroes, but they are still humans, even if they are exceptional. I still admire them, but not just for their physical prowess. I admire the strength it takes to be vulnerable when it comes to mental health, and it’s time for business leaders to follow suit and learn from the elite athlete playbook.

The mind-body connection may seem invented, but it is actually a scientifically proven connection. Studies have shown that when you’re stressed, your white blood cell production slows, which means your body has a harder time fighting everything from infections to cancer, according to PubMed. Wounds take longer to heal in people with chronic stress, these studies show, and vaccines may be less effective.

Mari Sierra, wellness manager for J Balvin’s new interactive wellness app, OYE, told The List exclusively that over the past decade there has been “a paradigm shift in our understanding of our brain-gut axis, which integrates the nervous system with the gastrointestinal and immune system.” She added: “Both disorders and psychological disorders like depression, anxiety or chronic stress, among so many ‘others, are better understood, treated and prevented if we consider our well-being as a link between our mind and our body.

This change has led experts to adopt more holistic and homeopathic approaches to health care. Sierra mentioned that “functional nutrition, meditation, breathwork, martial arts, yoga, dance, and massage” all benefit your body, helping to reduce stress and anxiety, among other issues. psychological and physical. “That’s the approach we’ve taken with OYE,” she explains of the bilingual app, “incorporating some of those same culturally aware practices that anyone can try.” Downloading the OYE app, subscribing to Headspace or taking advantage of the meditations available on Spotify are steps you can take on World Wellness Day to improve your mind-body connection.
