Monday 10th October 2022 was World Mental Health Day.
Here at Tyler Packaging, to recognise World Mental Health Day, we added to the wider conversation occurring on social media, television and elsewhere by engaging in some targeted activities in the office.
Our day began with a healthy, nourishing, and energised breakfast. This set us up for the day (and continued to do so for the week) and helped engage our brains to face whatever challenges came our way.
The team then took part in a Mental Health Quiz. This was a huge eye opener for a lot of us, with some astonishing statistics which really gave us all a lot to think about as individuals and also to discuss as a larger team.
Finally, we took part in some calming colouring which gave us the opportunity to sit and reflect and calm our minds. Again, this carried on throughout the week allowing us to focus on making time for ourselves throughout the working day.
A healthy work life balance is something we are very focused on here at Tyler HQ. World Mental Health Day has not only educated us about mental health, but it has also allowed us to think about ourselves, our team members, and look at how we can change the small things to help improve our own mental health daily, at work and in our personal lives.
