Health and Wellness Coach at TVH Americas. You can learn more about her, and her life's philosophy via her book on Amazon, Putting It All Together: Living Well with TCOY (LWT). For many, the path to success often involves sacrificing health for wealth, only to find themselves later spending their wealth to restore their lost health. This irony of life was one of the main discussion points in a recent podcast episode I was privileged to be part of, where I had an insightful conversation with wellness expert Lucy Del Sarto.
From Athlete to Wellness Guide
As a former athlete, Lucy understands the pivotal role wellness plays in achieving success. She shared her inspiring journey from her days as an athlete to her current role guiding people on their wellness paths. The concept of wellness is not just about physical health, but also about the mental and emotional aspects of our being. And the sooner we understand this, the better equipped we will be to handle life's ups and downs.
Wellness in the Workplace
We delved into wellness in the workplace, where Lucy highlighted the importance of human connection, teamwork, and laughter. She spoke about how technology, empathy, and compassion can help rebuild and strengthen connections in the workplace that may have suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Lucy pointed out that a work environment thrives when credit is given where it's due, and leaders lead by example.
Our conversation concluded with a discussion on overcoming challenges and maintaining a positive mindset in the face of adversity. Lucy generously shared her experiences and provided motivational tools to help us stay resilient. She emphasized the importance of nurturing workplace relationships, promoting a culture of appreciation and kindness, and utilizing platforms like LinkedIn for professional growth and well-being.
From the podcast, one crucial lesson was the significance of wellness for success. As Lucy explained, embracing wellness is essential for success in the athletic field, business, and personal life. Another key takeaway was the role of wellness in improving the health and productivity of workplaces. This can be achieved by providing options for active workstations, encouraging regular breaks, and promoting a culture of laughter and creativity.
Furthermore, the importance of human connection in the workplace cannot be understated. Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, technology has become a vital tool for maintaining and strengthening these connections. Also, demonstrating empathy and compassion in the workplace can foster a more inclusive and productive environment.
Overall, the conversation with Lucy Del Sarto was enlightening and inspiring. It served as a reminder that wellness is not just about physical health but also about mental and emotional well-being. It emphasized the importance of maintaining a positive mindset, nurturing workplace relationships, and using professional platforms for growth and well-being. So, let's embrace wellness, not just for our personal health, but for our success and the success of our workplaces.
