We’re Here for You

Our epidemic of stress and burnout is directly connected to a global mental well-being crisis. For more and more people, living a life of well-being, purpose, and meaningful connections is harder than ever before.

Thrive Global and Stanford Medicine have joined forces to offer companies and individuals a cutting-edge mental well-being experience based on Stanford Medicine’s renowned Precision Health approach. Developed by Stanford Medicine’s leading researchers and academics, this approach goes upstream to target the root causes of mental health issues before they become symptoms, and to help people live healthier, happier, more productive lives.

Together, with our premier launch partner, Accenture, we are bringing you the ability to support your employees’ mental well being right now, when they need it most.

“As a truly human company we are committed to caring deeply for our people and helping them be successful both professionally and personally. And, this means helping our people practice self-care – which is important every day, but especially now. Offering tools like Thriving Mind, to support our people’s brain health, is one of our top priorities.”

Actionable Microsteps

At a time when employees are feeling powerless, Thrive Microsteps help your people take control of their mindsets and behaviors.

Mental Well-Being
If you find yourself judging your emotions or responses around the pandemic, remind yourself that they are normal and justified

Studies have found that pathologizing your responses by viewing them as “something wrong with you for reacting so strongly” actually increases your anxiety. Instead, say something to yourself like, “You are going through a crisis, and you are reacting in a normal way to an abnormal situation.”

Managing Stress
When you receive a notification that causes stress, pause and focus on inhaling for five seconds and exhaling for five seconds

Conscious breathing activates our parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for lowering cortisol and overall stress level.

Thriving Mind
During a negative, stressful moment, close your eyes and think of a person, place, or activity that brings you calm

If you’re feeling stressed and burned out, visualizing something positive can help re-activate the reward centers in your brain. Research has found that visualization can be as powerful a tool in reinforcing brain plasticity and building new neural pathways as the activity itself.

Mental Well-Being
When you feel overwhelmed, focus on your breathing instead of reaching for your phone

We often use our phones to distract us from challenging moments, but this often leaves us more stressed and more disconnected from what matters most. Allow yourself a moment to turn inward instead and focus on your breathing.

Managing Stress
Right now, identify your top “stressor signals” that remind you that your battery is running low

Learning how to listen to your own particular signals is an important way to guide your microbreaks throughout your day or your shift. Common signals include rapid heart rate, strong negative feelings, difficulty thinking clearly, unnecessary risk taking, and social conflicts. When you notice your signal, take a brief pause to reset so you can be your best at helping others.

Thriving Mind
Choose an affirmation that turns a perceived weakness into a strength

Start with a negative feeling and reframe it in your favor. For example, if you frequently feel judged (by yourself or others) for falling behind or not measuring up somehow, try: I am able to do everything that needs to be done. If you often feel overwhelmed or stressed, try: I am enough.
