What is the Moving Together Challenge?
Laurence, our HR & Office Manager who always has our wellness at heart, came up with the challenge to boost our mental health during these difficult months. Incorporating movement in our workday is crucial to us. The simple act of moving regularly contributes to relieving stress, anxiety and depression symptoms, so why not motivate each other to move more every day?
She divided our team into groups and asked us to set goals of how many active minutes we wanted to achieve in February. The main objective of the challenge: motivate each other to move more every day. And we're inviting you to be part of the movement this March.
Whatever activity (or activities) you choose, as long as you're moving, will count towards your 'moving minutes' goal. Even if it's just a walk around your neighborhood on your lunch break.
We’ve also teamed up with Eve Guilbert who will be teaching 2 Yoga classes and 2 After-Work Stretching sessions on our Instagram page!
How can I participate in the Moving Together Challenge?
Set yourself an objective of how many 'moving minutes' you want to accomplish in March. If you want to challenge your own group - be it your colleagues, family, friends, or pandemic posse - we have a template you can use to create teams and track your minutes. If you do it alone, know that our team is right there cycling/cross-country skiing/doing pilates/walking with you!
How can I participate in the contest to win a Shift 2.0 standing desk?
We want to encourage you to incorporate movement into your workday not only in March, but by making it a habit. So we're giving away a Shift 2.0 standing desk of your choice to keep you moving all day long, every day of the workweek!
