Happy stomach

How does food affect our workday?

Did you know it is not only what you eat that affects how your stomach feels? And do you know why you feel sleepy after your lunch break at work?

The stomach is part of the digestive system, and when upset, it affects our overall well-being and performance at work.  

Proper nutrition is crucial for a healthy and balanced stomach, but other factors such as sleep, stress, and exercise also impact your whole digestive system.  

In this 30 min webinar, Pleaz’s nutrition and lifestyle expert Julius Fænøe will explain:

How an upset stomach affects your mental and physical well-being.
He will also share his best tips to achieve and maintain a healthy and happy tummy – and how you can avoid feeling sleepy after your lunch break with a short exercise.

How to master stress with emotional intelligence?

EMOTIONS. Let’s talk about it!

  • Emotional awareness,
  • Emotional management, 
  • Empathy,
  • Social skills
  • Q&A from participants

All of the above will become practical tools to recognize stress more easily and prevent long-term sick leave.

As emotionally intelligent colleagues, you can all contribute to building an environment of psychological safety at work 🏆 where it is encouraged not to hide how you feel.

Remember: Stress is vital to you, and you can learn how to handle stress to improve yourself and others.

How to turn stress into your advantage

Can you relate to the feeling of being stressed? Most of us can, and it is most likely an unwelcome part of our daily life. However, stress is important for your mental and physical development. To take advantage of stress and your body’s stress responses, you need to know what stress is, how it affects your body and how you can cope with stress.

We have invited Dr.Stefano De Dominicis, Assistant Professor of Sport and Health Psychology, for a 30 minutes webinar to help us understand how we can cope with work-related stress – especially in a hybrid workday. Stefano is conducting research into the effects movement has on our minds, personality and behaviours and will help us understand why stress is not necessarily bad.

Why should you participate? Our host, Matias Welsien Thomasen, will make sure to ask Stefano questions about work-related stress to give you a new understanding of stress as something important to your mental wellbeing and give you actionable tools to use in your workday.
