Mental health and wellness continue to top our list of most requested topics. As we represent some of the top mental health speakers and wellness experts in the industry, we explored these topics in depth on our blog, covering a spectrum of key areas, including burnout, stress management, workplace wellness, and more.
Below, we’ve rounded up five of our most popular mental health and wellness blogs that resonated with our readers in 2023. Whether you’re seeking practical advice and strategies or a fresh perspective on the subject, we’ve got you covered!
Mental Health in the Workplace
Called a “master storyteller”, Anthony McLean delivers lively, actionable presentations on mental health, diversity and inclusion, and the intersection between them. He likens mental health to a garden — no matter how well you tend to it, if you don’t have the right soil, it’s never going to thrive.
Our mental health is informed by our environment and should be accounted for in the place where we spend most of our waking hours — at work.
Together with Anthony, we explored what a supportive and mentally healthy workplace looks like and why it’s crucial for maintaining productivity, team engagement, and employee retention. He shared strategies to help leaders proactively prevent burnout in their teams and normalize self-care within the workday.
Optimizing Health and Performance
Dr. Greg Wells is a renowned health and high-performance expert, who helps audiences optimize their wellness to sustain healthy high performance.
Already a four-time bestselling author, Greg released his fifth book in 2023. Powerhouse: Protect Your Energy, Optimize Your Health, and Supercharge Your Performance shows readers how to optimize their health cell by cell, focusing on the mitochondria — the “energy factories” that power our cells.
We chatted to Greg about his new book and why he chose to focus on the mitochondria as the key to achieving and sustaining healthy high performance. He also shared some of his go-to techniques to elevate his energy and shift from tension to flow when he’s feeling overwhelm and stress.
Healing from Burnout
An award-winning medical doctor, Dr. Susan Biali Haas equips people with the knowledge, skills, and tools to enjoy optimal mental health, avoid burnout, and increase resilience.
Formerly clinically depressed and burned out, Susan turned her life around by extensively studying how to overcome these debilitating conditions. Her research focuses on whole picture mental health and resiliency, and she draws on both her lived and professional experience to help audiences take control of their health and start living more impactful, meaningful lives.
This year, Susan shared her personal story with us — how she healed from burnout and the role that purpose played in fueling her recovery. She explores this extensively in her bestselling book, The Resilient Life: Manage Stress, Prevent Burnout, and Strengthen Your Mental and Physical Health. She shared some of the strategies she uses to help others find their purpose, improve their mental health and combat burnout.
How to Stress Wisely
With the release of her new book, How to Stress Wisely, in 2023, Dr. Robyne Hanley-Dafoe joined us for a client-exclusive At The Spotlight event, where she showed us how to rebuild our relationship with stress and use it to our advantage.
Robyne is one of the most sought-after, engaging, thought-provoking, and truly transformative speakers and scholars in her field. She specializes in resiliency, navigating stress and change, workplace wellness, and performance.
Our event recap blog was a popular read as it walked through Robyne’s eight realms of wellness and shared research-informed, tactical strategies to build stress and recovery systems fueled by self-stewardship and high performance — the key to living a full, healthy, and whole life, even in inherently tough circumstances.
The Happiness Equation
A Harvard MBA, New York Times bestselling author, award-winning blogger, and one of the most popular TED speakers in the world, Neil Pasricha dazzles audiences with ideas and simple tools that skyrocket individual and organizational performance and happiness.
Neil joined us for our last At The Spotlight event of the year, where he helped us solve the happiness equation by sharing research-backed tools and practices that cultivate a habit-based, positive mindset.
Broken down into three parts, his presentation explored two-minute practices/activities we can do in the morning, afternoon, and evening to help steer the focus of our day, build meaningful connections, and equip us with the skills needed to thrive under any circumstances. The goal isn’t to be perfect, Neil said, it’s to be a little better than before.
