The wellbeing revolution has had a huge impact on the workplace, with wide recognition that an engaged workforce can make a significant contribution to business performance but there is still a lot of work and education required:

• 72% of workplaces have no formal mental health policy, even though it costs UK employers around £26 billion each year and is one of the top reasons for long-term absenteeism (Shaw Trust independent report)
• Only 8% of UK organisations currently have a standalone wellbeing strategy that supports the business strategy (CIPD Report)
• FTSE 100 companies that prioritise employee wellbeing outperform their competitors and the rest of the FTSE 100 by at least 10% (Mind Report)

The Wellbeing at Work Event 2016 invites HR professionals and business leaders across the UK to a one-day conference on Wednesday 19th October at The Cavendish Conference Centre, 22 Duchess Mews, London W1 (5 minutes walk from Oxford Circus tube).

Tickets for the event can be booked via the website here.

Remedy

When Things Go Bump In The Night…

October is here and Halloween is being marketed in every high street store you can imagine. Fright night events are scheduled, and the sweet bins are being loaded to prepare you for the trick or treaters. Halloween is looked at as a time for some scary fun, but not everyone finds scary funny.  Here are a few homeopathic remedies* to help support you when you are scared of what goes bump in the night (both adults and wee ones alike).

Aconite – This is a great remedy for those who wake in panic at midnight – terrified. They have terrifying nightmares and may find it hard to sleep at all. They may have anxiety about the future and may even fear death. Children may wake at midnight screaming and be difficult to console, and then be afraid to sleep. Aconite is a great remedy for midnight terrors.

Belladonna – This lovely remedy is great for childhood fevers where the child radiates heat, but it is also a wonderful remedy for children who wake in delirium fearful of monsters. They may wake at 3am with nightmares. There may also be a phobia of dogs.

Borax – This is a common remedy for children or individuals who wake suddenly in the night for no apparent cause. They may clutch onto the side of the cot (children that is!!) and scream. Little ones have a fear of being put down or downward motion, so putting a little one in their crib when they have fallen asleep feeding tends to be a nightmare for parents. Individuals needing borax may also be fearful of sudden loud noises – this may be noticed by being startled when spoken to. This is a remedy that can help pets fearful of fireworks.

Nat mur – This is a remedy for those who are fearful of robbers or wake from bad dreams of robbers. They may check everywhere is locked several times at night to be sure the home safe for the night. They may also be more fearful or have problems sleeping around the full moon.

Phosphorus – This is a frequently used remedy for those fearful of ghosts and ghouls. Individuals needing this remedy can become fearful at twilight and are really not keen of the dark at all. There may be a fear that something is lurking in every dark corner they see. Nightmares may include themes of fire. This is also a common remedy for pets that are afraid of fireworks.
