The science determines wellness like a skill that is cultivated and builtbut like most human skills, building it requires an investment of time and effort. Building and caring for well-being must become a habit that is cultivated not artificially, but immersed in our daily reality.
Mental health professionals confirm that the critical situation that the world has gone through in recent years has shown the importance of well-being in meeting the challenges: “The reality is that Many of us spend a third of our time at work. If we think that another third should be spent on vacation, we will soon realize how important it is to cultivate well-being in everyday life, especially in the workplace which takes up a large part of our time,” says Dr. Mary RockDirector of INECO Organizations and Scientific Coordinator of the Symposium.
So much so that younger generations are increasingly prioritizing their mental health and looking to work in companies with cultures that promote it. Thus, those who focus on improving their well-being by taking care of their body, time off, and emotional health, they will be better prepared to face an increasingly changing and uncertain future.
“To compete for talent, companies and individuals will need to make changes by incorporating mental health into their policies, practices, measures and benefits. This change involves the efforts of all institutional actors who must also appropriate the issue to serve as allies, promoting an environment of transparency and openness and a culture that favors well-being,” concludes the specialist.
