Stress Relief Activities for a Happier and Healthier Workplace
April 27, 2023
To celebrate Stress Awareness Month, Accountability took the opportunity to conduct a series of activities to help decrease daily stress and promote a positive work environment. We understand the negative effects of stress on our physical, emotional, and mental health, which is why we encourage our employees to prioritize their self-care.
Research shows that individuals with access to effective stress relief techniques tend to be happier, healthier, and more productive — which is why we’re excited to share some of our favorite stress-reducing activities we’ll implement throughout the month.
- Mindfulness & Meditation
Mindfulness meditation is a powerful tool for reducing stress and enhancing overall well-being. We’ll offer guided meditations and mindfulness exercises during lunch breaks and encourage our employees to continue to engage in meditation outside of work hours.
- Physical Exercise
Moving our bodies and engaging in physical activity is a great way to reduce tension and stress. We’ll conduct daily micro-exercises such as stretching, walking, and light workouts during breaks. We’ll also be offering discounted gym memberships and access to wellness classes.
- Healthy Eating Habits
What we eat plays a significant role in our physical and emotional health. We’ll be offering healthy snack options throughout the day for our hybrid employees, beneficial snack care packages for remote employees, and promoting a balanced diet to nourish our bodies.
- Team Building Activities
Interacting with colleagues positively can help increase happiness levels and reduce stress at work. In addition, we’ll host fun virtual team-building activities such as trivia night, scavenger hunts, and friendly competitions to improve overall morale and positivity.
Employee wellness and mental health should be a top priority for companies looking to build a happier and healthier workplace. During Stress Awareness Month, Accountability took steps towards promoting stress-reducing activities among its employees.
We aim to provide stress-reducing tools and techniques to help our team members feel happy, healthy, and productive. By creating a positive work environment, our employees will feel more empowered to achieve their goals and become better professionals.
