Well, today’s the day—we’ve officially published blog #100! We feel a Sandbox milestone like this deserves a stroll down memory lane—and maybe even a high-five or two—so lace up those sneakers and practice your high-fiving form. Here we go!
Let’s start by reminiscing about our very first blog or, should we say, vlog. Yes, that’s right—ASEBP’s CEO, Jennifer Carson, did a video blog to kick off The Sandbox back in 2015! A Sandbox for Grown-ups outlined all of the amazing collaboration that took place to get this site off the ground, diving into why The Sandbox was created and how to use it to take your workplace wellness programs to the next level.
Not only do you have 100 stellar blogs to refer to for inspiration, there’s also 46 different threads and 120 corresponding posts all available on our forum. You can read advice from other wellness champions, leave a response or start your own thread. The Support for Wellness thread is a great example—find out how others engaged their leaders in a focus on wellness and leave your own thoughts while you’re there.
The Sandbox also contains over 100 resources to support your wellness champion work. You can:
- access tips for delicious, healthy meeting food through the Eat Smart Meet Smart website,
- participate in free mental health training through the Alberta Mental Health Literacy Project,
- print out and share the new Wellness Poster Series with your colleagues,
- and so much more!
The Sandbox is all about getting what you need to support wellness in your school community, whether that’s from intriguing blogs, valuable forum discussions or helpful resources. Take this opportunity to start digging in The Sandbox today!
