Contrary to popular belief, workaholism is not an asset – self-care is! In a bid to skew this misconception, the International Self-Care Foundation established ISD eleven years ago. ISD stands for International Self-Care Day and promotes life-long physical, emotional and mental well-being.

Celebrated on the 24th of July every year, ISD raises the profile of healthy lifestyle choices and promotes effective self-management. But what is considered as healthy? Michahaila Downie, the Director of People and Finance at Antibody Analytics investigates…

The more we move, the better we function and feel. Our muscles, connective tissues, bones, heart and lungs reap the benefits of movement, as does our mood. When we engage in physical activity, we release feel-good endorphins through persistence and feats of strength.

Though, self-care stretches beyond the realm of physical activity and into the mind-body-soul connection. Our mind is full of thoughts – some positive and some negative. According to Michigan State University, journaling is one of the best ways that we can clear our minds and tap into our inner thoughts and feelings, encouraging us to focus on self-awareness and acceptance. To kickstart a healthy dialogue, nature journals and an Audible subscription is part of our employee benefits package.

I’m sure you would agree that life doesn’t always go to plan and sometimes it can be hard to find time for ourselves. To keep up with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, we don’t think twice before cancelling our plans and putting social events on the back burner. Though, relationships are key to the preservation of good health and wellbeing. Research suggests that social support acts as a therapeutic intervention that goes as far as strengthening the immune system. With this in mind, we start each morning with a fifteen-minute catchup and spice things up with regular team-building activities like the highly awaited pizza Friday!

For us, culture is something that is very important. We’ve made it our mission to make Antibody Analytics the best work environment we can; we instil self-care into everything we do.
