30 Jan National Health Campaigns to be aware of this year
It’s now the end of January, and some of us may have given up on our New Year’s Resolutions already! We tend to think of resolutions as our own personal goals, such as losing weight or exercising more. This year, why not try something different and ditch the fad diets, unrealistic exercise regimes, and instead, focus on making your workplace a healthier and happier environment.
Afterall, we spend one-third of our adult life at work so it’s important to be surrounded by positive environments and people for our physical and mental health.
You can start by using national health campaigns to develop a workplace calendar of events and selecting topics of interest to address throughout the year.
You could also organise educational seminars, informative health stands, drop in MOT health checks or even just distribute leaflets internally to educate employees. Click here to read more on our workplace health promotion services.
