Brewery Workers’ Emotional Wellness: What You Need to Know

How would you rate your brewery team’s emotional wellness?

Don’t worry, it’s not an invasive question! It’s a question designed to start you thinking about ways you can help improve your employees’ emotional wellness… and why you would want to in the first place.

What is Emotional Wellness

The answer is simple enough: emotional wellness means you know how to handle and express your feelings in a positive way and to drive positive change in your life.

Sounds ideal, right? We’d all love to have robust emotional wellness.

But for various reasons, members of your team may be suffering from sub-par emotional wellness—a situation that not only impacts those individuals, but all the people around them, and ultimately, the entire brewery.

Get the Ball Rolling

The easiest way to talk about a subject like this is to have a team meeting, and discuss what emotional health is. You could even share an article like this one, that talks about signs of emotional wellness.

Next, share some tips for improving emotional wellness. For instance:

  • Get a good night’s sleep. Sufficient sleep will positively impact your emotional wellness and—bonus—your physical wellness, too.
  • Manage stress levels. Try different techniques, like breathing exercises, going for a walk, interacting with a pet, or guided relaxation to discern what works best for you.
  • Train your brain to think positive. If you tend to linger on things that go wrong, train your brain to focus on something positive instead. It will take time, but the habit will grow.
  • Enjoy a good laugh.
  • Be mindful of what you eat and drink. There’s some truth to that old adage, “You are what you eat!” Give yourself healthful, tasty food that provides you with real energy and won’t lead to a crash later.
