September 12, 2019: “Overcoming Burnout: Creating a Culture of Calm”

One in four Canadians cite stress as the reason for leaving their job, while 73 per cent of all working adults aged 20 to 64 report at least some level of stress (Statistics Canada). With the rapid rise of technology and the increased awareness and access to information, our society is now living in the most distracted, stressed and overwhelmed state. Finding our calm state of mind is not only significant but necessary in order to manage our overall health and well-being.

At our recent SPARK Play, we shared research and practical strategies to support individuals, teams and organizations to bring more calm at work and at home, and increase our energy, focus and connection. This 2-hour session included experiential activities demonstrating innovative and holistic wellness programs like Life Success Plans, digital detoxes, niksen, nature therapy, breathing, and meditation.  The groups journeyed through the 5 stages of Burnout and then worked together to create prototype calm kits for the workplace!
