This Episode: The Wellbeing Protocol – with Dr Georgi Toma

In this episode, Lucinda talks to Dr Georgi Toma, the founder of Heart & Brain Works, dedicated to helping organisations improve employee wellbeing. Dr Toma talks about her research surrounding the wellbeing protocol, and the highly practical takeaways you can use in your own organisation.

Key Takeaways

  • We often make the mistake of believing that we can push through and work harder, while still retaining the same levels of ability and efficiency. However, we must take time to recharge.
  • Additionally, for a long time the term “wellbeing” in the research community was highly debatable. Researchers did not reach an understanding of what it truly was.
  • There is an intrinsic need for homeostasis in all human beings. Happiness has a set point that is reached for everyone. Wellbeing is the same in that it has a certain level for everyone, that when reached, means we are able to better meet the needs that challenge provides.
  • Everyone has a personal way of recharging. Lastly, the journey to discovering our own method of refilling our sense of presence is a personal one, and will often be unique to you.
