Healthy week heroes 2019 may 2019

Following the success of Healthy Week last year, where 154 of you became Healthy Week Heroes, we are doing it all again in June with a renewed focus on the Five Ways to Wellbeing. This sets out five actions to improve personal wellbeing – connect, be active, take notice, keep learning and give – that the week will be based on.

Don’t worry, all of your favourite physical events will still be included and the refreshed programme is jam-packed with activities to encourage you and your colleagues to eat well, get active and make time to take care of yourself.

Fancy encouraging others to get involved? Become one of this year’s Healthy Week Heroes or a Wellbeing Wizard and you will receive a free pack with ideas to inspire you and your office to start making small changes to your working day. Join the team and sign up now.

There are more than 90 activities taking place during the week, including calligraphy sessions and a synchronised swim taster.

The week will kick off on Monday 17 June with the launch fair in Parkinson Court between noon and 2pm. The event will include many exciting stalls, activities and tasters for things to come throughout the week, including yoga in the Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery, mindfulness tasters, a guided art walk and much more.

Whether you sign up to support the scheme or not, remember to tweet any photos you take using #healthyweekhero or #wellbeingwizard and tag @UniLeedsStaff to share what you get up to during the week – we would love to hear about it!
