Academic & Professionals
Academic and professionals feel the complex pressure and challenges on a daily basis. Students are faced with financial difficulties, loneliness or anxiety when doing assignments or examinations. While, professionals face many psychological challenges which can affect family life, mental health, and even increase the risks for chronic illnesses and heart attacks. These factors can cause the academics/professionals performance to decrease and their absenteeism rate to fall.
As anxiety and stress levels surge in the academics’ and professional world, Wellness Wonders are able to offer support and encouragement to all.
Students go through nearly around 1,000 hours out of every year at school. Therefore, it's pivotal that academic institution give a platform that encourages positive wellbeing and distinguishes any indications of emotional misery. A educational program that consolidates wellbeing will preferably avoid depression, increase life fulfilment, energise social duty, promote inventiveness, encourage learning, and even improve academic accomplishment. Students should be equipped with the information and abilities in the best way to distinguish their feelings.
Lecturers and teachers mental health and wellbeing state has been a concern in recent times. This is due to fewer staff, severe budget cuts; fewer staff or bigger class sizes. This has increased the workload and increasing stress levels for lecturers and teachers.
For majority of us, work is an imperative part of our lives. It's where professionals spend much of their time and where they get their income. Having a fulfilling job can be good for their mental health and general wellbeing. However, having a stressful and non-fulfilling job can have a profound effect. Therefore, it's important to have a good work life balance to improve family life, mental health, and wellbeing.

How to Manage Stress and Improve your Wellbeing?
Engaging yourself in regular exercise or keeping fit will make you cope with stress better. Task yourself to half an hour exercise daily: this raises your heartbeat and leaves you gasping for breath, and this also is a great stress booster, but even something like a short distance walk will clear your mind and makes you relax and sleep better.
Another major thing that contributes to great physical health and ability to study well is to have a rest and sleep well enough at least 7 to 8 hours regular sleep per night will improve your general well-being. Sleep can maximise your time and plan your work effectively to get ready for exam or assignment deadline.
Taking Short Breaks
It is never a good idea to work for extended periods without a break. If you have been reading intensively for a while, you should take a break, get up to stretch your body, and have a walkabout. Without regular breaks, your level of concentration may lapse and reading that chapter, or writing that paragraph may take a longer time and lot more mental effort than it should be!
Get Personal Support
It is important to have a stream of people who can motivate you through your study periods. Most of the time you feel pressured or stressed out, it is important to talk and draw on the support of these people. They will nurture and console you and give you a shoulder to lean on. Involve yourself in group discussions with classmates which will allow you to see that you are the only one feeling the pressure before an examination or deadline.
It is possible to overcome negative thinking of 'I can't do this' attitude by positive thinking or positive affirmations. It will help you to write out a list of positive statements and pronounce them to yourself or paste them up somewhere where you will see them every day, to give yourself a boost of confidence.
