As part of our ongoing efforts to create, curate and share important wellness resources with employees across the organization during this difficult time, we will be releasing weekly “Wellness Wednesday” videos via our employee portal.
This initiative, created for staff, by staff, aims to share practical wellness tips, resources and challenges to help keep employees well. Weekly topics will range from home workouts to nutrition, mindfulness, connectivity, mental health and more.
After three months into the COVID-19 pandemic, some of you may be getting a little tired of the term “self-care”. Maybe you aren’t that into yoga, or the thought of finding the time to do a five minute meditation with your kids demanding yet another snack, just isn’t practical. For those of you looking to let off a little steam and practice self-care in a non-traditional sense – this one’s for you.
Laura Knych, portfolio manager in marketing is helping us fall in love again with the childhood classic - dodgeball. Whether you loved or hated the game, there is no doubt that throwing a ball (a soft one of course) at a willing opponent, is a fun way to spend some quality time with your family (and maybe even get a little payback). In today’s Wellness Wednesday video, Laura has enlisted the help of her father to demonstrate the fundamentals of dodgeball — dip, duck, dodge, dive. Enjoy!
Don’t forget — an important part of wellness is connectivity and community.
During this difficult time, we encourage you to go on Yammer and connect with your team mates and other staff across the organization, using the hashtag #WellnessWednesday.
Share your own videos, photos or tips about what you’re doing to stay well while working from home — or bravely working on the frontlines – and help inspire and motivate others.
