Employee support organisation, Acacia Connection, calls this building resilience. Resilience is our ability
to cope; to stay productive and maintain physical and emotional wellbeing despite job pressures.
Acacia Connection supports Just Better Care Support Professionals to look after their mental health by providing tips and techniques to help boost resilience. Here are some things we have learned along the way.
You’ve probably heard this word at least once in the last few years, and for good reason. Practising mindfulness helps to reduce in-the-moment stress, by centring you and calming your rushing thoughts, while also promoting several long-term benefits to your mental health.
