Enjoy tuning into this enriching episode focused on Wellness and Mindfulness. Workplace Wellness statistics: Burnout, stress, physical health and anxiety are significant issues in the workplace...throw the pandemic's mental health impact into the mix - and business leaders now need to meet dramatically heightened needs for health and wellness support. The CSIRO conducted a study with 4,000 participants emerging from COVID-19 lockdowns feeling their exercise (66%), emotional wellbeing (41%) and diet (36%) had worsened to some degree, with two in five indicating they have gained weight during the outbreak, and 60% reporting a negative shift in their overall satisfaction with life. The Medical Journal of Australia has concluded that mental health problems were at least twice as prevalent as in non-pandemic circumstances, and one person in every five is now experiencing clinically-relevant depression symptoms. The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners has also reported 21% of Australians also said they had started drinking more alcohol - this is more than double the global average (10%). Needless to say, we're in dire need of solutions, support, healing and step by step Wellness & Mindfulness frameworks that are accessible and REALISTIC to implement into our daily lives. So setting the scene, this is why I'm so excited to introduce you to my guests, Donna and Marcello Abbate because they have a Solution and it's absolute GOLD.
