Doing well in our career is very important but feeling well and being happy with what we do is equally important. We should not impulsively give up our current career, which we may not necessarily enjoy but may pay us well … because we have real needs in the real world. 1/4
At the same time, pursuing what we love, what makes us happy, even if it’s small and done on the side, ensures two things 👇🏽 2/4

A) The monotony/stress/frustration of having to do something that doesn’t fulfil us but takes care of our real financial needs is minimised to some extent. 3/4

Happy, sunny #WorldBathingDay! This year’s theme is #HealingTogether: reconnection, reuniting and rebirth for our global community. What better example than the people-powered movement driving the renaissance of outdoor pools?

A thread: 1/6

Here’s style bible @ELLEDecoUK on the boom in lidos around the country - “Outdoor swimming is back – and in a big way”.…

Here’s @helenpidd of @guardian on the “lido revolution” which is starting to rebalance the north-south divide in access to outdoor pools –…

During forced #remotework, employees who perceived greater job control reported lower exhaustion and higher work-life balance, but this was conditional on their segmentation preferences.
Let’s unpack this a little. First, the main terms:

1) Job control
The job demands-control (#JDC) theory of stress (Karasek, 1979) posits that when employees are subjected to a high level of job demands at work it increases strain on employees,
but job control (autonomy) can buffer the relationship between job demands and strain. That is, even when job demands are challenging (e.g., in the COVID-19 context), high control over one’s job reduces strain and can diminish the negative outcomes of high job demands.

New issue! We have just released an #openaccess collection focused on new urban forestry approaches and concepts for city #planning.

The issue was edited by @Dr_alessiorusso and Francisco J. Escobedo and is available here:

What has the issue found? 🧵👇
1/ One of the priorities for cities is to provide equal access to healthy #food & lifestyles.#Urban food forests can contribute, but + effort is needed to identify the most effective mosaics of “#green” land uses.

@FAOForestry @sim1borelli @botanicaUGR
2/ The inclusion of edible species in urban forest stands can enhance nutrition and #wellbeing in the urban landscape, where food deserts are common.

"The #UnitedStates is experiencing an extreme teenage mental-health #crisis. From 2009 to 2021, the share of American high-school students who say they feel 'persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness' rose from 26 percent to 44 percent"… #wellbeing
"More than 1 in 4 girls reported that they had seriously contemplated attempting suicide during the pandemic, which was twice the rate of boys. Nearly half of LGBTQ teens said they had contemplated suicide during the pandemic, compared with 14 percent of their heterosexual peers"
"But the big picture is the same across all categories: Almost every measure of mental health is getting worse, for every teenage demographic, and it’s happening all across the country."

"Even with the government subsidies, people in #Egypt, #Tunisia, #Syria, #Algeria and #Morocco spend between 35 and 55 per cent of their income on #food. They’re living on the edge: small price rises bring #poverty and #hunger."

"Just before the pandemic, in 2019, American non-financial corporations made about a trillion dollars a year in profit, give or take. This amount had remained constant since 2012. But in 2021, these same firms made about $1.73 trillion a year. ...
... That means that for every American man, woman and child in the US, corporate America used to make about $3,081, but today makes about $5,207. That’s an increase of $2,126 per person. ...

Amidst increasing attention to the #mentalhealth of health workers, we explored how #stigma is understood/enacted in #MedEd. We learned that things are a lot more complicated than we thought. 🧵

@jelenapole @juveriazaheer @rachaelpack89 @MedEd_Journal…
We know #stigma can prevent help-seeking due to the risk/repercussions of disclosure. This topic has been well researched. See the article below and work of @drjessigold @KGoldMD for more details /1…
Yet, the pandemic has brought the hero narrative to the fore, a sentiment meant to praise workers, yet may stifle conversations about distress, burnout, and help-seeking. See the important work of @drbreenheroes for more on this and Dr. Breen's story/legacy. /2

Each of us operates on two different, but competing sets of values: Core and acquired values!

But what are they, where do they originate from and how do they support or block us from being our true selves?

Let's take a deep dive👇
CORE VALUES: They give us pure joy, they are things that matter more than anything else. Our core values are inherent, meaning that we act on them without any extrinsic influences or rewards. We cannot help it, we naturally act on those values, because that is who we are.
ACQUIRED VALUES: We all acquire values from many outside sources during our development. They reflect social norms and attitudes and are things we use to judge or compare ourselves with others.

But here’s the problem: 👇

Looking forward to an interesting debate on the extent as to how #Wellbeing considerations can (and should) inform our major post-#Coronavirus policy decisions. #LSEPublicPolicy
First speaker @SteveBakerHW says that he originally approached the debate's topic with a degree of skepticism - claims "nothing would affect my welfare in a negative way more than the Government deciding they know best how to make me happy" #LSEPublicPolicy
However, Baker says he now understands that the debate is more about the idea that everything that Parliamentarians do should be about improving the lifelong wellbeing of their citizens & the pragmatic debate should be about how best to do this #LSEPublicPolicy

Having a meeting today & want to include more voices? What about trying this magic question, especially when you feel a first majority vote showing: ‘And who is still sitting on a completely different idea?’ Try it! And watch people embrace the created space! #deepdemocracy
Is someone expressing a concern or no-voice in your meetings today? Don’t put it away as annoying. Tap into the wisdom that is hiding in it and ask this magical question to the group: ‘Who recognizes this?’ Spread it and watch how people connect and feel valued. #deepdemocracy
Facilitate your team to a ‘consent’ decision, not a lousy compromise. How? By sticking to the best idea (majority vote after thorough brainstorm) and explicitly asking the no-voices this magical question: ‘What do you need to come along with this idea?’ #deepdemocray

What a difference a day can make in terms of the weather.
Yesterday it was all sunlight and luminescence.
Today it was muddy and grey.
But not dull, never that!
There was still a lot of scampering about to be done.
Sniffing, and rooting, then dashing off into the distance to play with another dog.
Recall went right out of the window at this point.
But luckily she soon came zooming back.
I adore Waffle’s ostrich plume tail.
She was getting rather muddy underneath though.
When we got back I’d have to give her a bath.

An excellent session. Many thanks to the experts who shared their insights. Among the many great takeaways, I’ll highlight one from Simon Field who drew from pactice in other countries…

@res_publica @CSkidmoreUK #LifelongEducation
@res_publica @CSkidmoreUK To recognise workplace experience of older learners, design a qualification with no course structure, just an assessment. Courses can be self-designed to plug individuals' knowledge/skills gaps. An interesting approach to reskilling challenge.
An issue which keeps coming up at every evidence session is the desperate need for better careers information, advice and guidance in schools, colleges and communities.

Closing #ICRE2021 Plenary🧵for the future of Medical Education with visionary Dr. Catherine Lucey.

COVID19 catalyzed change and gave us all a sense of urgency.

I love her terminology "just do it" ~ "house on fire"

Yup. That was #MedEd as we pivoted during the #syndemic Image
Disaster demands a new dawn! We cannot go back to conditions that lead to the crisis. We cannot return to "normal"

Now is the time to vision for the future. How do we ensure we are moving in the best direction in #MedEd

HT Dr. Catherine Lucey #ICRE2021 Image
We need a transformative vision to ensure we achieve our goals. This isn't going to happen overnight.

#Digital technologies, which have become one of the important parts of our lives, have numerous benefits in many areas such as #education, #health, #economy, etc. But, and there is a big but?
What are the costs of #digitalization for #children and #young people? How should families treat children on the internet or social media using? What do the figures tell us? Here is the threat on Children & Young People’s Mental Health in the Digital Age by the OECD in 2018. Image
Almost half of the world is connected to the #internet, and in countries that are members of the OECD almost everyone is #online. For children and young people today, being online and using social media have become an integral part of their lives.

This piece by @mckinnon_a will resonate with a lot of people. Most corporate wellness programs fall short of the mark, and some do so by an absurd margin. I want to discuss several reasons why this happens. Thread. 1/x…
Firstly, let's deal with some elephants in the room. 2020 and 2021 have been tough on our mental health. We've all been through a ton of change, faced a lot of risk, and got cut off from many of our usual support structures. 2/x…
If you're a parent of children, then you've been likely been isolating with kids. Many have been juggling this with working from home, two things that clash horribly. It's a particularly difficult form of "role conflict", a major contributor to stress. 3/x…

“There’s a cost to the long hours and high stress and high change environment, especially without support.” @jessamynlau joins #SSIRInstitute to discuss how #nonprofits and funders can work together to build healthy, thriving organizations that support staff well-being.
@jessamynlau “If #wellbeing has been an issue for such a long time, what has been stopping us from addressing it?” @jessamynlau suggests #nonprofits and #foundations need to build trust in order to address double standards and the melding of power and money. #SSIRInstitute

Ageism. It's widespread across the globe, and can have significant and serious consequences for our health and wellbeing. Here's a short thread on a piece in @TIME, from 2020, which featured research from Prof Becca Levy @YaleSPH #ageism #health #wellbeing 1/
Prof Becca Levy, Yale School of Public Health, and colleagues 'analyzed 422 studies involving ageism in 45 countries from 1970 to 2017... including data from seven million older people' with a focus on 'age discrimination and health outcomes'... 2/
They found evidence that ageism adversely affects health in 96% of the studies
And that ageism was related to worse health outcomes for 11 measures... 3/
