Welcome from WISH Yorkshire. There has been plenty happening with changes to our board and a calming session on how to handle the everyday stresses of life.
We’re sad to announce that Caroline Chapman and Amy Chadwick have stepped down from our board. We want to say a big thank you to them for their invaluable contribution to WISH over the last few years. Caroline has done a fantastic job using her communications know-how to raise the profile of WISH and Amy has contributed greatly to setting up events and finding sponsors. We wish them both well and will definitely stay in touch!
Our latest event looked at how to move from being ‘stressed to mindful’. Speakers Lucile Allen-Paissant, Director of Mind It and, Jennifer Potter and Lise Ribero from Oasis School of Human Relations shared some useful tools on how to make small practical changes to reduce stress and increase mindfulness and resilience. The session also showed how to build different kinds of energy in the workplace. It certainly hit home and has caused people to make positive changes already. We had some great feedback from WISH members afterwards.
Sue Jones from Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing said that before the event she had been sceptical about mindfulness, but now she was a believer.
She said: “Why do we let things stress us out that we have no control over? Like traffic jams, turn it into a positive. My journey to work is now like Carpool Karaoke and I get to work in a much better frame of mind. As always with WISH events, I came away with ideas not only to improve my life but little things that could be implemented in the workplace to help lower stress an already hectic environment.”
Angela Pursglove from Berneslai Homes said: “It’s good to be with likeminded people and realise that most people face very similar issues and challenges in the workplace to yourself.”
We are currently looking for new board members, including a new Chair, so if you are passionate about the vision of WISH and would like to get be involved in our region, please email us at email@example.com. We would love to hear from you.
