AFL All-Star Legend, Paul Roos, is championing Australia’s latest national mental health campaign. The “Australia’s Healthiest Workplace Challenge” mental health initiative is giving Aussie workplaces unprecedented free access to mental health technology that blew Mindfulness Guru Roosy’s mind.
What stunned Roosy? “The precision and accuracy of the health advice is mind-blowing.” he shares. What sets this mental health initiative apart is a departure from blanket statements and generic mental health suggestions. It’s “[p]inpointing for each Aussie exactly what their unique body and brain needs for balance and nourishment, it’s impressive,” he reports.
No more pressure to take the latest goat yoga craze, or spirit quest trend. Meditating in stillness can even be biologically stressful! The technology assesses the individual’s unique biology to deliver a realistic, customised program based on their specific stress and anxiety levels, health status, and lifestyle needs. Each employee gets their own personalised mental health manual and joins their team to do the 30 day team building challenge together.
“Business teams see over 85% of their staff report significant reduction in mental health risks in less than 30 days using this technology.” shares Matt Riemann, Founder of Australia’s Healthiest Workplace Challenge. “That’s why the typical 30 day group challenge is the perfect timing to boost Australia’s mental health right now.”
Roosy sees it as a game-changer for leaders giving realistic and meaningful support to their teams. “Leadership and wellness aren’t two separate conversations. The next era of business brings leadership and wellness as the same thing. And to be a really good leader, you need to look after yourself and you need to look after your staff.” he furthers. “We need to integrate this whole healthy work and lifestyle experience instead of burning out our staff, and then leaving it up to them to be able to be healthy after work.”
“You know I’m a big advocate of Mindfulness and Mental Health. Things like meditation are just as important as exercise. It’s time to bring this to work and not just after work.” shares Roos. “Mental Health and Physical Health can’t be two separate conversations. Just like Leadership and Wellness can’t be separate, either.”
“I’m passionate about supporting the mental wellbeing of all Australians. All workplaces need to get behind this initiative putting free mental health tools, resources and technology into the hands of YOUR employees. Everyone wins this game, so let’s go and do this together as a team.”
