Occupational health teams should be encouraged to get behind the concept of mindfulness, an alternative approach to helping staff cope with pressure experienced in the workplace, says Suzy Bashford.

It can also help employees thrive under stress and relate better to colleagues or clients.

Most of us don’t get enough sleep, putting our bodies under stress. Ideally we should sleep for 9-10 hours a day and we should move into the deep sleep pattern roughly 90 minutes after getting into bed.

The earlier we get to sleep the better for muscle recovery and overall physical well being and it helps with weight loss.

The final product is composed of 60% sugar, 20% corn syrup, and only 20% actual gum material.
