04/11/2021 - Stress Awareness E-Chat

 

This e-chat discussion was centred around stress awareness and the different ways we can help manage our stress levels. This was an opportunity for you, as employees of the authority, to share, discuss and inspire others with useful ideas and handy tips on how you have coped with stress during the pandemic and beyond. 

If you would like a recording of the session, please email Health&Wellbeing@carmarthenshire.gov.uk and a link will be sent over.

 

28/10/2021 - Talk on Menopause

 

In acknowledgement of World Menopause Day, we held a talk on menopause, given by our very own Health and Wellbeing Champion, Gillian Grennan-Jenkins.

We encouraged everyone to attend the talk, as it is an excellent opportunity for not only individuals experiencing symptoms but also for managers and colleagues to understand the process and symptoms of menopause, in order to provide the best support to those who need it.

If you would like a recording of the session, please email Health&Wellbeing@carmarthenshire.gov.uk and a copy will be sent over.

 

12/10/2021 - Time to Change Wales: ‘My Mental Health Story.’

 

To support World Mental Health Day, we organised the Time to Change Wales team to give a presentation entitled ‘My Mental Health Story’ on Tuesday 12th. The talk included an anti-stigma presentation, delivered by one of the Time to Change Champions, in which they shared their own personal experience of mental ill-health.

11-15/10/2021 - Work/Life Week Swap Challenge.

 

For Work/Life Week, we are encouraging people to swap an unhelpful habit for a healthier option!

It can be a very small change that you put into action for a week. You can choose one activity from the suggestions below and try to do this each day for a week or you can mix it up!

This is all about seeing how a small tweak in your daily routine can do wonders for your health and wellbeing!

Please see some examples to help get you started and download your own Work/Life Activity Sheet and challenge yourself!
