Wellbeing tips from psychologist Cass Dunn

The lead up to EOFY can be stressful for business owners. So what can you do to help improve your wellbeing at this time?

Take care of your physical wellbeing

We all know the importance of daily movement and nutritious food. They help with managing stress, as well as breathwork and meditation.

Structure – and audit – your week

Examine how your time is spent currently and then put structure around your week for better balance and to guarantee time to switch off.

Leave a little time for nothing

Allow some free time in your schedule. This mental space is important to not only decompress but also allow for more creative thinking.
