Now, more than ever, it is even more important to pay attention to self care and make our health a priority so that we can continue with the wonderful work we do. Self care activities to help keep us well, healthy and in a good state of mind through adversity. Recently I read a LinkedIn post which simply said:
If you don’t choose to make time for your wellness you’ll be forced to take time for your illness, Read that again.
The Thrive Academy can be one way to help alleviate your levels of stress and help bolster your resilience and emotional well-being during this time. By attending one of our live, facilitated wellbeing sessions in which we give guidance, relief and support to you as members, you are taking positive action towards keeping yourself well and putting on your own oxygen mask first.
The theme for this month is Stress and anxiety
We know our brains are responsible for detecting threats and it’s our brains that create a stressed or anxious state in our physiology. The good news is our brains can get us out of this state too! In this short video on your webpage Emotional resilience coach Becky Balzano teaches a simple strategy to help!
Time to Pause
A safe and confidential online space for you to come together, with your colleagues, to share the highs and lows of working through challenging times, with an experienced facilitator. Sessions are 1.5 hours and space is limited.

And a reminder about …
The Staff Wellbeing Hub in Lincolnshire
It’s great that you’re signed up to the Lincolnshire Thrive Academy and we also wanted to let you know about the NHS Staff Wellbeing Hub in Lincolnshire.
As a response to the pressures NHS and social care staff face, particularly since the COVID pandemic, mental health hubs have been set up nationally to offer staff access to wellbeing resources, rapid clinical assessment and treatment. Information on this can be found on the following website.
If people feel they need more than self-help support, then they contact the hub via the email address, Lpft.email@example.com or call the helpline number, 01522 518609, which is manned Monday-Friday 9am – 5pm (messages can be left outside of these times).
Hub Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Through this, staff will be offered a comprehensive mental health assessment, be then referred, if necessary, to ongoing support from the relevant mental health service that best fits their needs. All NHS and Social care staff will be prioritised for treatment, and placed at the top of any waiting list, and the services are completely confidential. The support is available for all health and social care staff working in Lincolnshire to access, whether working full-time, part-time, bank and agency, as well as students on placement.
More emails from us here at the Thrive Academy will follow but in the meantime have a look at the website and book onto anything you think would be helpful!
