27 Apr Wellbeing events
Wellbeing events at work are a brilliant way to help your employees find out information to help them lead healthy and happy lives.
Advice and tips on how to eat healthily, stop smoking, what you can do to reduce the risk of matters such as heart disease, diabetes or stroke and how to keep fit are all good examples.
Here are a few ideas:
Yoga – great for improving flexibility, muscle strength and controlling your breathing.
Pilates – strengthens the body, particularly good for core strength
Laughter Yoga – suitable for everyone, releases feel good endorphins, creates happiness and reduces stress
Mindfulness and meditation workshops – these remind us to slow down and lower our stress levels resulting in feelings of calm and relaxation
Stress management workshops – learn how to manage stress to avoid feelings of being overwhelmed
Know your numbers – Blood Pressure, Total Cholesterol, Blood Sugar and BMI (Body Mass Index)
Seated massage/reflexology/other complementary therapies – all of these to help you relax, unwind and to give you a well deserved break during the day
Putting on these events are a brilliant way to show your staff that you care about them and also drives home the importance of self-care. Everyone needs to take responsibility for their own health which in turn not only helps the individual but their ability to work as part of a team at work.
We have been providing massage at wellbeing events for University Hospitals Birmingham for a few years now and the staff always look forward to this service. There is always a queue of staff waiting to be relaxed and revitalised by our team.
Sara Wood, Occupational health and wellbeing manager HGS sites said…
“This service makes a significant contribution to staff wellbeing and it leaves them feeling relaxed and valued as a staff member of UHB”
If you are thinking of arranging a wellbeing event or a wellbeing week we would love to have a chat with you as to how we can help with any of the above-mentioned services and more.
