The programs have been very successful, with some of the highest engagement we have seen for a safety and wellbeing initiative. There is so much conflicting and confusing consumer health information out there that the simplicity of the HBAW message makes it far more appealing than most offerings. The other outstanding aspects of the program are its ease of implementation for our team and the measurable return on investment. And Anna- Louise and the ABC team are fantastic to work with!

Working for an organisation that is involved in crisis support and suicide prevention is not always easy. It can be stressful at times and self-care is a very important aspect that we value and promote. The Happy Body at Work program was just a fantastic way for staff and volunteers at Lifeline to hear and learn about relatively simple ways they could re-energise and improve life style habits if they wanted to. I would highly recommend Anna-Louise and her team at Happy Body at Work to any organisation that wants to empower their staff to self-care and good health.

Once your organisation has participated in the program you can witness for yourself the tangible performance benefits the program provides. You also get a more nuanced understanding of employee welfare and how we as employers can help to improve it. Happy Body at Work creates a win-win situation in which employees and the organisation enjoy mutual benefits.

I started a healthy eating regime and committing to move more was a no brainer. I listed some rules - make time, no excuses, achievable goals – I enlisted support from colleagues and family – the impact has been great – I feel energised and proud of my achievements including dropping 15kg
I chose to move more and be more active with my children. I have noticed that my mood and ability to deal with everyday life has improved and I feel happier and more energetic.

Poor sleep for a number of years has had an impacted on my health. The tips and information provided through this program has helped me to learn to switch off and relax better before I go to bed and also to manage the stress that is related to poor sleep patterns. One strategy I found helped me was to not watch TV or use devices for two hours before bed and to read quietly while laying in bed to wind down totally before I tried to sleep. To manage stress I walk now every afternoon after work for half hour.

I have slowly worked up to running 10 kilometres a week! I was worried about my knees which can be problematic, so wear knee braces and run only on grass where possible. I have toned up, and have a lot more energy. I am happier, calmer and now sleep beautifully!

Every time I sit, I hear the voice saying: ‘Your head is as heavy as a watermelon’ and I immediately correct my body alignment. Brilliant.
I’ve also shared my newfound knowledge with friends and family around me as I found it very valuable!
