Behind the scenes at One Wellbeing – Mary Curristin

At ART, our goal with One Wellbeing is to consistently deliver a data-driven health and wellbeing solution that caters to users based on their current status; which is why it may not be a surprise to learn that the team behind the platform is truly as passionate about holistic health as they seem.

We’re speaking to Mary Curristin – Our Customer Experience Lead. Mary contributes to the One Wellbeing product strategy design, with a focus on the customer experience.

Alongside her passion for customer experience, Mary brings a wealth of knowledge to the One Wellbeing team. A qualified sports scientist with a research masters in recovery nutrition and a diploma in performance nutrition, Mary is also a graduate registrant of the Sport and Exercise Nutrition Register (SENr). She’s been a part of the ART Health Solutions team for almost four years, and her interest and experience in nutrition brings an alternative look at health and happiness.

“The [One Wellbeing] team is exceptional. They have such an admirable work ethic, dedication, and a consistent ability to exceed expectations while supporting each other with mutual respect and encouragement. We work together by leveraging our unique skills and expertise, communicating effectively, and coordinating efforts towards shared goals to achieve greater success.”

Mary’s enthusiasm for nutrition and employee wellbeing doesn’t stop at One Wellbeing – she also runs an internal newsletter, educating ART staff on nutrition and how what we eat can impact our health, happiness and performance.

Mary’s tips for better wellbeing at work:

– Set boundaries between work and personal life
– Take regular breaks including screen breaks
– Manage workload and prioritise tasks
– Invest in ongoing learning and skill development
– Set realistic goals
– Schedule time for self-care

When Mary isn’t working on One Wellbeing and ensuring it continues to excel in supporting employee health and wellbeing, she’s keeping up to date on the latest research in science, wellbeing and women’s health. She also enjoys reading, spending time with friends & family, walks, listening to music and podcasts and going to the gym.

One Wellbeing asks users to consider their daily habits and how they impact their health and happiness. Mary’s daily habit to ground her during a typical work day is having a big mug of tea and two squares of dark chocolate after lunch; “I spend that time reflecting on what I am grateful for.”

“I look forward to it every day and it helps me to reset no matter what kind of day I am having.”

Mary’s tips on developing a healthy mindset

  • Practice gratitude daily
  • Celebrate all the wins – even the small ones
  • Be kind – to both yourself and others
  • Focus on solutions, not problems
  • Move your body daily and eat a nutritious diet
  • Embrace a positive attitude

From taking screen breaks to practising gratitude daily, it’s good to know that prioritising health and wellbeing doesn’t have to be an uphill battle. In fact, with this insight and a determined approach to self-care, it’s easy to start making baby steps towards a happier, healthier lifestyle. With Mary on board the ART team, we’re all able to strive further towards attaining our wellbeing goals with a little more knowledge – and a much brighter attitude, on top of that.
