As the nights draw in and the days get shorter, does your wellbeing strategy consider the effects of the winter months too?
Did you know lower levels of sunlight can reduce serotonin, leading to a higher chance of suffering from depression? So it’s no surprise then, that 20% of UK adults suffer from some form of seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
We also find it considerably harder to muster up motivation in the winter months. Living in ‘hibernation’ mode means our desire to exercise can drop by a third in winter. Our productivity also plummets during the colder months.
With 44% of workers saying winter has a negative effect on their mental wellbeing, we’re making it our mission to help boost the mood and mental health of your staff over the coming months. Scroll down to see our wellbeing workshops for winter.
