An essential read for anyone experiencing low level anxiety or stress, this book pulls together the various individual strands of business logic, scientific research, self-care, spirituality and common sense to provide a one-stop guide to thriving at work.

The widespread ‘more for less’ attitude is creating a dramatic rise in work-related stress and a higher ratio of staff sickness. Not only does this create a fiscal impact upon the organisation and the broader economy but it has the potential to create significant long-term mental health issues for employees.

You cannot always alter the demands of your professional or personal lives but, by understanding more about how your brain functions and by actively pursuing well-being techniques, you can enhance the skills that help you manage and succeed at the challenges thrown at you and reduce the risks associated with burnout.

With a focus on improving mindfulness, motivation and productivity, this book offers sound, practical advice and strategies for self-care whatever your working environment and whatever stage you are at in your career.

Stephen J Mordue has 19 years’ experience in social work, initially as a practitioner and team manager working with older people and for the last seven years as a lecturer in social work specialising in adult care and the Mental Capacity Act and Beat Interests Assessment. He works at the University of Sunderland.

He found some self-care ideas more by chance than design as an avid runner and spiritual enquirer. He’s a great fan of mindfulness and meditation as an ‘easy to access’ ‘no gear required’ approach to well-being. Having spent most of his life being completely disorganised he was told about David Allen’s ‘Getting Things Done' methodology’ and so his new life began!
