An 8-Hour Work Week Could Be Ideal For Mental Health

By David Saunders, Health Editor | UPDATED: 08:28, 05 June 2020

How many paid hours per week does an individual need to work to maintain good mental health? A new study aimed to answer this question and the findings suggest that shorter work weeks and longer weekends could be the most beneficial.

Unfortunately very few of us are in this attractive position and whether you love your job or not the chances are you’re working more than 8 hours a week! Luckily, ThinkWell-LiveWell, the new mindfulness toolkit ( can help support your mental health.

Be ‘well in mind’ at work…

ThinkWell LiveWell has numerous programmes to help support a healthier and happier you – including their ‘well in mind’ programme, which focuses on mental agility, control of stress and habits – ideal for those of us working long, hard hours.

We all know it can be difficult to feel calm when time is short and pressure is on. TWLW offers a Quick Stress Buster 5 minute programme that will relax, centre and restore you and you can visit these quick reboots easily during your day!

Why not try listening to TWLW on your commute or lunch break?

These programmes are designed not only for the few converts, they’re for anyone, anywhere, anytime – to help you find more balance and harmony in your life. That’s why TWLW is mindfulness for practical people! 

Boost your mood during your working day…

If you’re looking to boost your mood at work consider TWLW’s programme ‘well in spirit’. Founder Mick Cassel explains, “while we can’t change the world around us, we can change ourselves; and when we bring more compassion and tolerance into our environment – the world starts to change.

The ‘Well in Spirit’ section combines contemplations, meditations and dream primers and TWLW makes these as accessible as they possibly can.”

It takes 21 days to form a new habit so why not sign up to ThinkWell-LiveWell for a month for £8.00 and see how much self-development could help you on your journey, no matter how busy you are!
