Interview. Marta Sánchez-Moreno and Carla Sánchez (The Holistic Concept):

They tell us about their # ‘# YOMEQUEDOENCASA initiative and we will accompany you’ due to the confinementInterview. Marta Sánchez-Moreno and Carla Sánchez (The Holistic Concept): “Be careful with working all day, you have to know how to close the virtual office and make way for private life”                              Fantastic and highly useful. Thus we could describe the initiative that they have launched from The Holistic Concept on the occasion of the coronavirus crisis and the confinement of the Spanish in their homes. And it is that, although it seems that being at home we can be resting, nothing is further from reality, the extremes are bad. On the one hand, the inactivity of those who have seen their activity suspended is very bad for physical and mental well-being as well as for a subsequent return to routine; on the other hand, the ‘overactivity’ that teleworking can cause also wears out, especially on the psychological level. For this reason, Marta Sánchez-Moreno, CEO of The Holistic Concept, and Carla Sánchez, co-founder and communication director of the wellness and technological wellness solutions consultancy, have decided to open their platform to the public for free (using the code CALM 20). In addition, on the occasion of the moment we are living, they have launched different initiatives to try to take care of the health and well-being of those who are confined to their homes through daily active breaks, exercises for the body and mind, special recommendations … For this reason, RRHHDigital has been able to speak with them to learn more about this interesting project. Do not miss the interview Question. What is the ‘#YOMEQUEDOENCASA Y TE ACOMPAÑAMOS’ initiative? Marta Sánchez Moreno. Taking into account the special circumstances we are all experiencing and how complicated this situation can be for many, we have decided to contribute a grain of sand by opening access to our platform for free. Anyone can enjoy our content using the CALM code 20 during the registration process. A library of more than 120 audios and videos that will help you work on the physical and emotional level the impact of stress, tension, worry or uncertainty. In addition, we have a special program for families with content to improve stress for children and another for pregnant women. All those who register will also receive a newsletter with complementary content to work in depth on different areas related to their well-being. In parallel and to give comprehensive support, we organize active 15 minute breaks every day through our Instagram profile @theholisticconcept. We connect live at 11 and 19. 30 hrs and are available during 24 hrs. Q. What is the benefit to people, whether they are working or not, who are confined to the coronavirus? Carla Sánchez. Now we have more time but we are limited in our mobility, something that will take its toll both physically and mentally and emotionally because we are not used to it. It is necessary to manage that time in a structured and orderly way to be able to cope with the day in general, organize ourselves working, or with the children if it is the case. On the one hand, it is necessary to take care of the body and combat sedentary lifestyle at home, since it can end up affecting the back and other sensitive areas more than usual. Mentally, it is the same, because it is not easy to take adequate breaks and end work. Having a tool that provides all that help, guidance and also accompanies you live to create a routine with you, is a great support at all levels right now. We are impressed and happy by the good reception that the initiative has had. Q. What kind of exercises / activities do you do? Carla S: Both on the platform and in the live sessions, we work Body and Mind as a whole. Physical exercises range from stretching to joint mobility, through breathing exercises, relaxation, and postural education. The practices of the Mind area are oriented to manage emotions as common as anxiety, nervousness or stress, which have increased considerably; at the same time that we promote qualities such as motivation, gratitude, serenity or positive thinking. We do this through breathing, relaxation and mindfulness exercises. The most striking thing about these techniques is that they have an immediate impact, the person feels better after finishing their practice and it is a great push to continue dealing with current reality. Q. What special content have you added to the platform due to current circumstances? Marta SM. We have created four new programs adapting to special situations, especially bearing in mind that we are at home a long time, sitting or lying down, with restricted mobility and that not everyone is used to teleworking. For this reason, from now on they will be able to enjoy a Special Coronavirus program with express content perfect for helping us in critical moments of physical or emotional stress. We have also created a program with content aimed at working from home, another for stretching and, finally, another related to back health. Q. What are the keys so that the routine of confinement does not take its toll on us physically and mentally? Carla S: Purpose, discipline and personal space. Having daily goals is basic right now. If you telecommute with a company, you still have a certain structure thanks to virtual meetings and the common plan drawn up, but that is not the scenario for everyone. Those people who are self-employed or have had to stop their professional activity completely face a greater challenge; it is about extracting juice from that time that we have won. Whatever your situation, set yourself specific goals, create an agenda every day and stick to it. That discipline will restore order to your life and make the journey go faster than you imagine. But be careful with working all day, you have to know how to close the virtual office and give way to privacy to do things that we like, even if we are locked between four walls. We have to be more creative than ever, working and on a personal level. Q. How can users access this content (both disconnections and platform)? Hours, means … Registration can be done through and use the CALM code 20. Active breaks are every day, Saturdays and Sundays included, at 11 and at 19. 30 hrs and they last 15 mins so that they are affordable and easy to integrate into the day.
