The Lancashire Wildlife Trust has developed a ‘Wild Wellbeing Day’ programme at its flagship nature reserve, Brockholes, to take office workers outside to embrace the natural world and experience the mental and physical benefits of being outdoors.
No matter the size of your business, stress and poor mental health can have an impact. Absenteeism and presenteeism are huge problems in today’s fast-paced workplace.
Spending time in nature is proven to have a positive impact on an individual’s mental health. Our wild wellbeing days can ensure you have a happier, healthier and more productive workforce, whatever the size of your business.
Run by the specialist MyPlace team, a pioneering partnership project with Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, our Wild Wellbeing days are designed specifically to improve the mental health of all participants using a range of ecotherapy techniques following five key themes:
“There is a strong relationship between levels of staff wellbeing and performance. Taking a positive, proactive approach to mental health at work can help you fully engage your staff.”
The Nature and Wellbeing report, a study produced by the Wildlife Trusts with Essex University, found the impact of volunteering in nature had an extremely positive impact with more than two-thirds (69%) of all participants saying their mental wellbeing had improved after just six weeks.
Participants also reported significantly enhanced feelings of positivity, increased general health and pro-environmental behaviour, higher levels of physical activity and more contact with greenspace.
“The wellbeing session was a brilliant way to forget about work for a few hours, laughing and not talking about work. Seeing my team happy and relaxed gave me a great sense of achievement.”Siemens
