Wellness Round-up!

by The Sandbox Staff | August 15 2019

With so many resources and nuggets of information available on The Sandbox, we totally get how overwhelming this space can feel when you’re just starting out. But, if we’ve learned anything since launching this wellness treasure trove, it’s that learning from others is one of the best things you can do. So, with that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the most popular content from The Sandbox so you can see what others have found useful on their journey to wellness superherodom!

  • 10-Minute Wellness Activities. These quick and easy activities are our most popular resource by far and a sure-fire way to add some life to your wellness initiatives. With 13 activities in the series—and counting—there’s something for every situation and group. Find these gems by simply searching “10-minute wellness” in the Resources section.
  • Wellness Poster Series. Updated each year, this inspiring, go-to series of posters touches on all dimensions of wellness and will motivate you and your colleagues to incorporate wellness into every aspect of your workplace. From fostering better social connections to building resiliency at both the individual and group levels, it’s not hard to see why these are a top pick!
  • Emotional Wellness: The Importance of Making Connections. This is one of our most read blogs of all time! Written by Barry Litun, executive director of the College of Alberta School Superintendents, it touches on the importance of reaching out to people in a time of need—even if you aren’t quite sure what to do or say.
  • It Takes a Village. Another of our most popular blogs, this one shares an interview with Dr. Jody Carrington (a psychologist who focuses on relationships, self-care and community support) and Darlene Ferris (director of Wellness and Human Services for Wild Rose School Division) where they discuss their holistic model of psychological support for the education sector.

With so much useful information to be found on The Sandbox, we hope this wellness round-up makes it just a little easier to dig in and chart your path to workplace wellness greatness.
