What is the Workplace Wellness Strategy of 2023?
In 2022, the workplace saw a shift towards more flexibility and autonomy for employees. Remote work became the norm, with many companies transitioning to a hybrid model of in-person and remote work. 2022 also brought a number of challenges for the global economy including the outbreak of war in Ukraine, disruption of global supply chains and rising inflation. These events had a significant impact on the workforce, leading to a number of changes in the way that people worked and lived.
My Workplace Wellness Calendar can guide you with some ideas for implementing your wellness strategy.
✨ The 2023 workforce are impacted with increased stress and burnout, as well as decreased job satisfaction and productivity. Here are 5 work trend predictions that will characterise 2023:
- Flexible work options are here to stay
- Non-linear career paths will become the norm
- An increasing use of AI
- Growing importance of soft skills
- Greater emphasis placed on mental health
The key trends shaping work in 2023 will certainly centre around countering the inflation and post-pandemic era that 2022 brought as well as a continuation of the flexible work options and a focus on mental health in the workplace. For people looking to make big career moves in 2023, the development of soft skills, in particular social skills, will be paramount to success.

Do you want to know how you can apply the powers of your subconscious mind to any problem or to help you live a life of your dreams? Every thought is a cause, and every condition is an effect! Joseph Murphy, author of “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind” invites us to consider our mind as a garden and we are the gardeners. We plant seeds of thoughts in our subconscious mind all day long, often unaware because of our habitual thinking. He argues that what we sow in our subconscious mind, we shall reap in our body and environment. So begin now to sow thoughts of health, happiness, prosperity, career progression and accept them fully in your conscious mind. Continue to plant these wonderful seeds of thought in the garden of your mind and you will reap a glorious harvest. When you begin to control your thought processes, you can apply the powers of your subconscious to any problem or difficulty. You will be consciously connecting with the infinite power and law that governs all things. I challenge you to create or choose an affirmation that resonates with you. Make it the last thing you say before bed and the first thing you say in the morning before getting out of bed and watch the magic happen! Share this with a friend, family member or colleague who really needs to hear this.

Are your air pods actually frying your brain? How can we incorporate a safer use of technology?
1. Maximize the distance between your body & your devices when they’re on and in use. In this safer approach increase the distance as much as possible. The power of EMF radiation diminishes exponentially with distance. If we have a phone, & it’s an inch away from our body, & we double that keeping it two inches away we’ve cut the power of that exposure by 75%. But if it’s right up against our body, we are getting the maximum possible dose that device has.
2. Minimize your use of non-native EMF-generating tech. Do not use smart tech when you can avoid it. If there’s a piece of smart tech, look at its functionality & use for you. Don’t just get smart tech, because of what’s available. We already have a very high level of EMF exposure, every new wireless device will increase that for us & our family. Kids today are growing up in a world with so much non-native EMF so if you have kids in the house, definitely take additional precautions to not have excess levels of non-native EMF generating tech.
A great gratitude practice you can do is my Mindful Heart-Focused Breathing video. I hope you find this video helpful and please share with family, friends and co-workers.
Are you having trouble sleeping or quieting the mind? This is a powerful technique for engaging your parasympathetic response to help you quite your busy mind before sleep and for deep relaxation by extending the exhales. Take a breath in, then exhale through your mouth with a whoosh sound. Close the mouth and inhale through your nose to a mental count of 4, hold for 7, and extend the exhale for 8 with pursed lips. Repeat this cycle for at least four breaths.

Tip #4. How To Achieve Your Goals?
Did you know that 90% of new year resolutions fail by February? This is because when goals are difficult and challenging, people go off track. Most of us have a mission for ourselves which are goals or objectives we want to achieve in the next six months. We write down these SMART goals. But to be authentic I advise you to have accountability for yourself and also be accountable to someone else to ensure you are on track. Rather than having 50 goals that are vague and without self-direction, look at something tangible and make yourself accountable in order to move forward. Pick just one goal but that one goal should be so brilliant and clear that you can see it, touch it, feel it, smell it, and go towards it. Take personal responsibility and focus on what you want to achieve. In the beginning of the year, I don’t like to set goals, but instead set intentions by asking yourself the question – Who do I want to be by the end of the year? And then what actions, behaviours, and habits will support that.

Tip #5. Do Yoga for Brain Health
Have you given a Yoga class a try? Yoga with its emphasis on breathing practices and meditation brings mental benefits, such as reduced anxiety and depression. What may be more surprising is that it actually makes your brain work better. When you lift weights, your muscles get stronger and bigger. When you do yoga, your brain cells develop new connections, and changes occur in your brain structure as well as function, resulting in improved cognitive skills, such as learning and memory. Yoga strengthens parts of the brain that plays a key role in memory, attention, awareness, thought, and language. Think of it as weightlifting for the brain. The easiest way to begin your Yoga journey is with sun salutations. It is preferred that you face the sun as you work, and expressing your gratitude to the higher power of the Sun, the life source of the Earth. Subscribe to my Youtube channel for some Yoga videos.
