I’m Harry Jameson, Personal Trainer and Wellbeing Expert.
Together with The 1851 Trust and the INEOS Go Humans Academy, I want to talk to you about the POWER OF NETWORKS.
Both our formal and informal networks can provide us with support and inspiration.
This is important in creating a safe environment to explore physical and mental health challenges and encourage us to sustain healthy behaviour change.
I’ve found that seeking out the right mentors, a person or group who can support and offer advice, has really helped me to get where I am today.
It’s about taking inspiration from others to motivate you to be all you can in life.
- ‘Your network is your net worth’
- Strong and positive role models are key, as is having an outlet for your emotions(positive and negative)
- Share the wins and talk about the challenges
Now, let’s have a go at mapping out a list of networks that you might find useful - or which could act as a signpost for your peers.
Think about who you might be able to mentor as well.
The right outlet and the right support can be a huge bonus for our mental health, which is why it’s so beneficial to work on developing your networks.
