8 No cost wellbeing initiatives you can implement right away
To help everyone in your organisation perform at their best every day, here are 8 no cost wellbeing initiatives that are easy to set up and can lead to amazing results.
1. Walking meetings
Planning on the move is ideal for keeping meetings focused and efficient.
2. Mindful moments
Prompts to remind everyone to take short breaks, breath, move around, review their day so far and plan for what’s coming up. Brilliant for improving efficiency.
3. Healthy meeting nutrition
Swap coffees, sandwiches and pastries for water, fruit, crudities and nuts. An easy way to boost energy levels.
4. Hydration reminders
Its very easy to forget to drink water when busy but good hydration is the simplest way to improve concentration and focus and boost mood. Regular reminders to staff and easy access to water can improve effectiveness all round.
5. Fresh air breaks
The value of the great outdoors should not be underestimated. We spend much of our time inside so encourage staff to head out for a change of scene and a boost in energy and creativity.
6. Posture prompts
Poor posture compromises brain function and can lead to injury. Periodic reminders to encourage everyone to sit and stand up straight can dramatically improve mental and physical performance.
7. Monthly challenges and champions
Friendly competition and a shared sense of purpose help everyone get focused and get results. Challenges can be team and individual and can tackle activity, sleep, healthy eating and life balance. Recognition for those who do well increases motivation and sends positive messages throughout the business.
8. Wellbeing surveys or focus groups
Find out which wellbeing initiatives would really benefit staff by asking them. The consultation process sends a positive message that you care. Acting on the data you gather will increase engagement right away.
