Health Month 2016
How to Build a Better You
720 King West is asking for 30 days to help build a better you by making small changes in your workday habits that will benefit your physical health, and mental wellbeing. This April brings you 4 weeks of healthy activity challenges that focus on a building a healthier, happier version of you. These challenges also promote sustainable choices that help to build a better building environment for ourselves, as well as benefit our community and our planet.
Challenge yourself or make it a group effort! Keep track with your smartphone, Fit BIt, or just plain old counting. How many stairs can you climb in one week?
There are so many choices available for lunch, whether we bring it from home or grab a bite from a local restaurant. Make smart choices and help to reduce the amount of waste brought into the building by keeping lunch litter to a minimum.
Reducing stress not only benefits your mental wellbing, it helps you to maintain focus for a job well done. Power down and leave your desk behind for 30-60 minutes to take some time for yourself. Gather some coworkers and join a yoga class, or learn Tai Chi. Meet a friend for lunch. Or just sit quietly and breathe. Whatever you do, do it for you.
Leave the car behind and walk or ride a bike. If you commute to work on public transit, get off a few stops early and walk a few blocks or bike the rest. Create a scavenger hunt within walking or biking distance, and explore the neighbourhood with your coworkers. Any activity will do, as long as you use two feet and a heartbeat to keep the air clean.
Check back weekly for activity ideas and tips on how to build a better you.
