We can all see the benefit of being kind, not only to ourselves but also to others. Recognising that we must first manage our own mental health and wellbeing to be able to help those around us, whether it’s at work, at home, or others in our community.

We all recognise that kindness can transform our workplace, schools, families and communities. Change and uncertainty are recognised triggers, at the moment with the uncertainty that surrounds us due to Covid19 it is important to adjust and adapt the way we are communicating and supporting each other. Feelings are intensified and awareness heightened. 

The Institute of Directors article How to Promote Good mental Health in Your Business identifies that “if we are feeling good about ourselves we often work proactively, interact well with colleagues and make a valuable contribution to our team or workplace. “

37% of suffers are more likely to get into conflict with colleagues, 85% find it difficult to concentrate  and 48% are potentially less patient with customers/clients. It is essential we recognise the importance of self-care, when to take a break and encourage open communications, which helps to build trust.  Developing and providing the environment for support networks within organisations is essential if we want to create happy and productive working environments.
