Solihull referral practice opens wellbeing room for staff

Willows Veterinary Centre and Referral Service in Solihull has come up with a novel idea to help its employees take time out from the fast-paced veterinary working environment: the wellbeing room.

The wellbeing room is designed to offer staff a comfortable space to relax during breaks, or before or after shifts. It has comfortable seating and a small library of books covering topics such as personal development, mindfulness and stress reduction.

There are also two 'jars of joy' staff can dip into which feature top tips for emotional, mental and physical wellbeing. Employees are also being invited to put forward their own top tips on wellbeing to share with colleagues. 

It is hoped that the room will also provide employees with a sanctuary from social media, emails and telephones. 

Sounds like a great idea to me, although the library titles look a bit uninspiring for my taste. My ideal wellbeing room would have a few John Grishams on the shelves, limitless music, a Sony playstation, oh, and a minibar.
