Staff Healthy Week

17 – 21 June 2019

Healthy Week is returning with a renewed focus; the five ways to wellbeing.  We want everyone to consider just how many different ways in which we can all improve our wellbeing. Don’t worry, all your favourite physical activity will still be included and the refreshed programme is jam-packed with activities to encourage you and your colleagues to eat well, get active and take time out to take care of yourself.

Become a Healthy Week Hero

Over the past two years, Healthy Week has already given lots of our staff the boost or impetus they need to kick-start their journey to a happier and healthier lifestyle.

This year, we want to support our Healthy Week Heroes in keeping some of the great stuff they deliver during the week going throughout the rest of the year. For example, teams contributing to an office fruit bowl, lunchtime yoga or walking meetings.

If you choose to become a hero this year, think of yourself as an ambassador for Health & Wellbeing across campus, encouraging and enabling your colleagues to take good care of themselves! We are keen to learn more from all our heroes; we want to ensure that the programme continues to grow and that we put on activities that all of you want to see. Therefore, we shall be asking all heroes to feedback useful information once the week is complete.
