Wellbeing is often talked about especially throughout the coronavirus pandemic, but what does wellbeing mean? It's more than just asking how are you feeling today?
Our wellbeing is connected to our entire outlook on life, on how we respond to stress at work, home and school. Whether we're 16 sitting exams, 34 and heading to the office, or 67 and looking for places to socialise, we all have to look after our wellbeing in unique ways to live our lives to the fullest.
Consultations will last up to 30 minutes. We recommend having at least three, six weeks apart, to get the most out of the programme. But you can choose to have just one, four, or more!
At your second and third consultations, you'll rescan on the Boditrax machine, discussing the results and any changes with our friendly staff member. Where possible, we will try to keep the staff member you speak with the same.
You'll then both discuss how the personal plan has been working for you, what you have liked about it, what hasn't quite worked the way you planned, before resetting your goals and what actions you can leave the appointment with.
Boditrax machines are available at certain branches. Pop in, call or email to make your appointment during opening hours.
