Snowplow’s Wellbeing Month

We took the month of October to look after our mental and physical health. We kicked off the month by giving each and every Snowplower a Wellbeing day, which was a day off to do whatever they wanted.

Rebecca went for a dip in a lido, Hayley got to meet her friend’s baby, Miranda harvested the vegetables in her garden, Jordan and Nicki hung out at the British Museum and Miriam made us all very jealous on her trip to Corfu.

We started each week with wellbeing recommendations.

Week 1: Books

Week 2: Apps

Week 3: Podcasts

Week 4: Recipes

With the help of Yeh Yoga, we hosted a handful of different wellbeing sessions, including: HIIT, meditation, various types of yoga and even a sound bath!

Yoga Nidra with Liz
Stretch + Mobility with Tom

Desk Yoga with Emily

While all of this was going on, we also participated in a team fitness challenge where we all got together to see which team at Snowplow could walk, run, cycle and swim the furthest by the end of the month. We did have a few very competitive teams.

In KM, here are the results:

Tech Ops were the winners, travelling 1,174km between them. The Operations team were not too far behind, with 1,063km. The winners will all be receiving a voucher to put towards anything which will contribute to their mental or physical health. A new pair of trainers, protein shakes or even maybe a spa gift set.

Every Thursday was Thankful Thursday, where we’d start the day by sharing what we were most thankful for. Here were some of the things we were thankful for:

  • Jordan was thankful for his 6 day holiday
  • Hayley was thankful for blue skies
  • Rahul was thankful that Australia was coming out of lockdown
  • Miriam was thankful for her book
  • Ben was thankful that he was able to move to Europe

Not only did the Wellbeing Month encourage us to look after ourselves, it also brought us together as a team. What’s one thing that you can introduce in your workplace to get everyone feeling just a little healthier, both physically and mentally?
