About the Initiative

Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design & Technology (IADT) is proud to be running their annual Work Life Balance Day events on Ireland’s National Workplace Wellbeing Day which takes place on Friday 30th April 2021. In the COVID-19 era as we work from home (or live at work!) this programme gives us a chance to meet up with colleagues (albeit online) and we hope the programme planned will have at least one event that appeals to you.
WLB Day Programme

The focus of the sessions is to give you support as you work from home and an opportunity to take care of yourself during this day. All events take place online. The day starts with Mindfulness at 9.30am followed by a mix of live interactive sessions about wellbeing, personal care (including tips on cutting hair at home) advice about gardening and a Sugar craft cookery demo for those creative ones among us. We will be finishing off the day with a session from the DSPCA with advice and tips on dog training for all those who succumbed to pressure during the lockdowns. Have a look at the attached programme for full details.

🕒 9:30-10:00     Mindfulness in the Morning Mayhem
This session will focus specifically on our current morning routines, or perhaps lack of routine. Participants will have the opportunity to consider what may be the primary source, or sources, of their “morning mayhem” and consider practical ways to help resolve or at least reduce their impact on getting your day off to the best possible start.

Seamus Power
I experienced at first hand the stresses and strains of transitioning from a traditional “9 to 5” workplace role to roles with little or no restriction on when and where work could be managed. I struggled to find my ideal personal, family and workplace balance. I eventually decided to heed my body’s warning signs (weight gain and migraine headaches in my case) and took steps to restore my ideal life balance. That led me on a journey to complete my masters in Health Psychology in 2018 and my passion for helping people realise the benefits finding their ideal life balance too.

Helping people find their ideal way of working that best facilitates personal, family and employer needs is a core principle in many modern workplaces. This session will help participants consider practical strategies to ensure they can be at their best for themselves, their family and their workplace. Participants will have the opportunity to consider how they can establish their own ideal life balance based on their unique circumstances.
