A healthier world

by Wardour – Apr 06, 2018

This Saturday marks World Health Day. The event, held annually by the World Health Organization, is dedicated to raising awareness around global health.

To mark the occasion, we’ve collated some of these pieces which consider how we can better look after ourselves and each other.

Heart work

We produce a range of award-winning content for the British Heart Foundation, including a quarterly printed magazine (Heart Matters), regular online articles, interactive infographics and videos. These all focus on how people can take better care of their heart, be that by making healthier lifestyle choices, or by paying closer attention to warning signs they might not know are there. Here are two recent videos that explore the impact fats can have on our bodies and how oral health can affect your heart.

Social change

In our work for the RSA, we produce a quarterly magazine, the RSA Journal which explores a wide range of issues affecting society. It gives influential thinkers a platform to explore how new approaches to a wide range of subjects could change our world for the better.

Last year, Gus O’Donnell, former cabinet secretary, posited that viewing public policy through the lens of wellbeing would save resources and can make the state more efficient. You can read the piece here.

Business boosts

Last year, a big focus fell on mental health. Celebrities and figureheads alike discussed their own battles with depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses. In our work for the Hays Journal, we spoke with Emma Mamo, Head of Workplace Wellbeing at mental health charity Mind. Emma discussed how forward-thinking organisations can better support employees with mental health struggles. See what she had to say here.

A better balance

Writing for the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment earlier this year, we considered how many workers find themselves stuck in a pattern where work dominates their life. To help members of the Institute, we put together six tips they could use to find a better work-life balance. You can find out more here.
