now pause will help you keep your mental health in shape is the wellbeing initiative designed for the hospitality sector. It was launched at the beginning of lockdown, offering a free self-care toolkit to help keep your mental health in shape.

Relax with Take 5

Part 2 of this project was launched on 1st July, just in time for the reopening of the hospitality industry. Take 5 is a set of five-minute relaxation podcasts created specifically for use in pre-service briefings and team meetings, designed to help you take 5 minutes to stop and relax. 

The project is the idea of Craig Prentice, founder of mum, hospitality talent partner, who has designed this initiative in collaboration with marketing freelancer Peter Kerwood, featuring podcasts created by wellbeing coach Andrew Johnson.

Craig explained:

“Take 5 offers accessible, bite-sized relaxation tools which can be used anytime in or out of the workplace when you simply want time out.”   

Simon Numphud FIH, Managing Director of AA Media, has welcomed the new initiative:

"At a time where our hospitality industry needs as much support as possible to help its recovery, we welcome this great, free initiative. Mental health is such a critical factor in wellbeing and this accessible toolkit gives hospitality workers the practical support they need."
