We asked Team Eames: What ways are you kind to yourself?

Mental Health Awareness Week

​Mental Health Awareness Week is all about the power and potential of kindness. We know the health benefits behind showing kindness towards others, but what about being kind to ourselves? We asked Team Eames, what ways are you kind to yourself?

“I turn into a baker sometimes as the whole process soothes me!” – Diayana AB, Operations Manager, Singapore

“Ensuring I get enough exercise so that I can continue eating what I want.” – Elmer Tan, Principal Consultant
