There are a lot of legitimate reasons some folks are not interested in talking about and/or engaging in Wellness. For example, you might hear:
1 | “I don’t want to be viewed as weak.”
2 | “I don’t need to worry about this right now.”
3 | “There’s supposed to be suffering in a job like this.”
4 | “Who has time for that?!”
This month’s 2 Tips supports those uninterested in Wellness. Here’s how to remain uninterested.
Hold tight to your legitimate reasons for lack of engagement in wellness.
Disregard research and facts so that you can make sure that your values and your legitimate reasons remain align.
Practical Strategies for Remaining Uninterested
1 | Avoid reviewing operations data such as turnover, staff and volunteer satisfaction feedback, and staff performance metrics.
2 | Keep overlooking the state of yourself/your team, including the highly-caffeinated, messy, and fiendishly smart phone distracted.
3 | Don’t start too early with wellness practices; the best time to fit wellness into your life is after you develop heart disease and autoimmune diseases. Otherwise, you won’t fit into the American statistical trends on illness.
4 | Remain an inspiration to your consumers. The more you suffer from job stress and vicarious trauma the more inspiration you are to your program consumers.
5 | Don’t waste five-minutes on a mindfulness app, etc. when you can scroll down a social media app for a five-minute dopamine hit, for the 10th time today.
Why did we develop 2 Tips videos?
We know that many professionals and organizational leaders do not have the funds to partner with specialists (like us) and/or the time to strategize on what might seem like extra projects.
We launched these 2 Tips videos to support you with making tweaks, adjustments, and refinements in programs and operations — doable for busy professionals like you!
