Arena Offices’ top tips for prioritising your wellbeing at work

Arena Offices’ top tips for prioritising your wellbeing at work

It’s World Wellbeing Week!

In today’s fast-paced world, where demands on our time and attention seem endless, prioritising our wellbeing at work has never been more critical. At Arena Offices, we recognise that fostering a healthy work environment is essential for both the success and happiness of our clients and their teams. 

Join us as we explore the importance of wellbeing in the workplace and share our top tips for creating a healthier work-life balance.

Get moving

Sitting in one place all day long has no benefit for your body or mind. At Arena, we are big believers that regular movement can boost overall mood and productivity.

Getting up and moving around is a great way to break up your day and boost your endorphins – the body’s natural painkiller which reduces stress and increases happiness. 

Many of our Arena buildings are positioned around green space and woodland areas with footpaths, making walks easy. We have onsite gyms for our clients and also love to host community exercise classes, such as pilates and yoga workshops.

Change your scenery

Having regular changes of scenery is a great way to break up your day into digestible chunks, to boost creativity and avoid becoming stagnant.

Our break-out areas and collaboration booths are a great alternative to the office.

Arena clients also have the opportunity to visit any of our 11 centres to use different meeting rooms, which busts boredom and boosts inspiration.

Prioritise natural light

Exposure to sunlight has the power to enhance employee morale and improve mental health. Sunlight is a source of Vitamin D, and helps us regulate our circadian rhythms – the 24-hour internal clock in our brain that regulates cycles of alertness and sleepiness.

At Arena, we prioritise client wellness by designing our buildings with open spaces, ample windows, and plenty of natural light.

South Coast Fatigue is a specialist Occupational Therapy Service that has been thriving at Arena’s Lancaster Court for more than ten years.

The team is led by Clinical Director, Fran Hill, who said: “There is an overall sense of calmness at Lancaster Court which helps to promote the health and wellbeing of our team as well our visitors. We love how natural light and nature is incorporated into the building – it’s a really nice space to be.”

Have personal space

It is important to have an area at work which is completely your own, such as a specific desk. Maintaining personal space helps create a sense of security and control, reducing anxiety and stress.

Expect Best is a web design firm based at Arena Offices’ Holyrood Place in Poole. The team works in one of our mezzanine-style expanded workspaces that spans two floors, offering ample room to accommodate their growing team and facilitate future expansion.

Alex Dibben, MD of Expect Best, said: “We have a fantastic office space that has been customised to prioritise our wellbeing and productivity. Our desks are spaced out, so every member of our team feels happy and relaxed, meaning they can produce their best work. We also have communal areas where we can come together to collaborate.”

Create a clear boundary between work and home

Establishing a clear boundary between work and home is essential for maintaining balance and preserving mental wellbeing. While hybrid working offers flexibility, there’s something to be said for the clarity that comes with physically leaving the office at the end of the day.

Here at Arena Offices, we are committed to fostering a culture of wellbeing every week, not just during designated awareness periods!
