Women's Day 2023: A Reminder For Her Mental Wellness At Corporate Vs Personal Life
Women's Day is a reminder that women's mental wellness should be a priority in both their personal and professional lives
As the world celebrates Women's Day, it is important to acknowledge the unique challenges that women face in their daily lives. Women often have to balance their responsibilities at home with their professional obligations, which can lead to stress, anxiety, and mental health issues.
In the corporate world, women are expected to be competitive, assertive, and confident. However, these traits can also affect their mental health, especially if they feel the need to constantly prove themselves in a male-dominated workplace.
To address these challenges, many women have adopted various strategies to maintain their mental wellness. One common approach is to practice self-care, such as exercise, meditation, and self-reflection. These activities can help women to manage stress, improve their mood, and boost their confidence.
Another strategy that many women use is to create a support network. This can include friends, family, colleagues, or mental health professionals. Having a support system can provide women with a safe space to discuss their feelings, receive advice, and gain perspective.
In addition, some women have chosen to prioritize their personal life over their professional goals. This can mean setting boundaries with their work, taking time off when needed, or pursuing a career that aligns with their values and passions.
However, these strategies are not always easy to implement, especially for women who face financial or societal pressures to prioritise their career over their personal life. Women are often expected to be the primary caregivers for their families, which can limit their ability to take time for themselves.
To address these systemic issues, it is important for companies and governments to provide support and resources for women to maintain their mental wellness. This can include policies that promote work-life balance, access to affordable childcare, and mental health services.
Many companies have recognised the importance of supporting their female employees' mental wellness in recent years. For example, some companies have implemented flexible work arrangements, such as telecommuting and flexible schedules, to allow women to balance their work and personal responsibilities. Other companies have provided mental health resources, such as employee assistance programs and mental health days, to support their employees' well-being.
Governments can also play a role in promoting women's mental wellness. For example, some countries have implemented paid parental leave policies, which can provide women with the time and resources to care for their families without sacrificing their careers. Other countries have implemented policies to promote affordable childcare, which can help women to balance their work and family responsibilities.
However, there is still much work to be done to address the systemic issues that affect women's mental wellness. For example, women still face gender-based discrimination and harassment in many workplaces, which can lead to mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. In addition, women often face barriers to career advancement, which can lead to feelings of frustration and inadequacy.
To address these challenges, it is important for companies and governments to implement policies that promote gender equality and diversity. This can include initiatives to address gender-based discrimination and harassment, as well as programs to promote women's leadership and career development.
Ultimately, Women's Day is a reminder that women's mental wellness should be a priority in both their personal and professional lives. By acknowledging the challenges that women face and providing support and resources, we can create a world where women can thrive both in and out of the workplace.
