Summer Daze

by The Sandbox Staff | July 18 2019

We can picture it now: you’re relaxing in a hammock with the help of your favourite summer jam. Whether you like to kick it old school with the Beach Boys or prefer some Top 40 summer ear candy, it’s allll good! As you’re relaxing, think back to all the awesome wellness planning and championing you did over the course of the school year. Maybe you rocked it out on Earth Day, or killed it during Nutrition Month. Whatever they were, you no doubt had some wellness wins that deserve a pat on the back!

Having reflected on your successes, now’s the perfect time to think of ways to build on these experiences and make next year even more stellar. Luckily, we’ve got some bite-sized tidbits of inspiration for you. Like the lite rock of workplace wellness, they’re easy listenin’ for your brain.

  • Find some new inspiration. You may feel like you’ve done all there is to do in the world of wellness, but there’s always something new to explore! Take this blog, for example, which is stocked with fresh ideas you can put to use right out of the gate in September. Does it get any easier?
  • Get people on board. Maybe last year you had some troubles getting leadership buy-in for your wellness program. It happens! We have a few tools you can add to your wellness toolbox to help you talk to leadership about why wellness is important at work, what the return on investment is and why your program deserves support.
  • Jump in—the water’s warm! If you’re just dipping your toe in the workplace wellness pool, you might benefit from some advice on how to dive right in and get your ideas off the ground. It can be tough to know where to begin when you’re starting up a new program or looking at revamping an existing one. In her blog, Dr. Candace Nykiforuk shares some helpful tips on how to get the ball rolling.
  • Just be you. No matter what your wellness program looks like, just being yourself and respecting your personal boundaries will go a long way to making you, your team and your wellness program feel successful. After all, there’s nothing you-er than you!

No matter what you’re up to this summer, we hope you’re relaxing and recharging. Lay back in that hammock, take a sip of that cool beverage and fix your shades—you’ll be ready to rock the new school year in no time!
