Where I work, they hold a ‘Week of Wellbeing’ every year – they put on workshops and sessions all week to do with wellbeing and to help employees think about what they could do in the future to help look after their own wellbeing. Helping to organise the week is always a privilege, knowing that not many other places of work offer this kind of thing. This week we have had activities such as a stress control session put on by the NHS, rock choir, photography session, a creative writing session and much more! This year, I decided I was… View Post

Recently I was tasked with a pretty good project at work, and whilst I don’t usually blog about the things I get up to in my full time role, I thought this was well worth the share.
