This 90 minute workshop does not pretend to be about medical care or treatment, it’s focused on the awareness of work-life balance, well-being and environment & sustainability.
We firmly believe that it is imperative that design companies create an awareness of the importance of what is called a healthy office: everything from interior to lighting design (not to mention architecture!) contributes to the benefit of the health of the entire team. That all colleagues are given the same well-being opportunities, both in face-to-face and remote work, and that each employee has the possibility of having a space to create and maintain certain habits that help them have a balance in their lives, all this in order to avoid what is called toxic offices. Speaking specifically on how to avoid burnout and learn to manage stress levels, physical activity becomes a very powerful tool. including a little time during a workday to perform simple movements known as "active pauses" that involve investing only 5 minutes. Furthermore, balanced nutrition and healthy eating are just as important as everything that we mentioned above, food is the gasoline that we need to function, which gives us energy and nutrients to fully develop.
