How to Support your Remote Workers and Manage Stress in the Workplace

These days, stress management is a hot topic. According to HSE, as many as 828,000 workers were affected by work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2019/20, which represents 2,400 per 100,000 workers and roughly 17.9 million working days lost to sickness absence1. With the current pandemic situation, stress and burnout are more common than ever. Depression and loneliness are also on the rise, with more and more workers having to work from home in isolation from their co-workers.

The regular practice of Yoga wellness programmes has shown in studies to improve mood, boost productivity and vitality in the workplace, leading to a healthy growing business, and in turn a healthy economy2,3,4. Yoga is a fantastic way to keep your staff happy and motivated!

It has even been suggested by Public Health England5 that workplaces should be offering weekly yoga classes to their employees, and more recently, ACAAI have recommended using Yoga as a strategy to help individuals overcome Covid-19 anxiety in the workplace6.
