Steps to Health Challenge 2022
May 23rd to June 26th
The Steps to Health Challenge 2022 has sadly come to an end. Five weeks have flown by! It's time to take a look back on the five weeks to see how far we have come but first things first - the thank-yous.
We would like to sincerely thank each and every person who took part in the challenge and those of you who joined in the competitions and the social media engagement. We are aware of others who made a tremendous effort within their teams to motivate their colleagues to continue stepping. Some days it is harder to get in those steps and it is easier when you have a supportive team behind you. Speaking of steps, a special thank-you to team coordinators who worked hard each week to support and motivate their team. You can still see your team's final step counts and the leaderboard.
We received many uplifting, inspiring and powerful stories to our 'Fitspiration competition,thank-you to every person who took time out of their busy schedule to submit their entry.
The Five Ways to Wellbeing
Each week of the Steps to Health Challenge we are going to do an input on Wellbeing. Wellbeing isfeeling good about yourself, the world around you and functioning well in everyday life, most of the time. Being resilient and coping with the normal stresses of life is also an important attribute of wellbeing. The Five Ways to Wellbeing is an evidence based strategy for wellbeing that was developed by the New Economic Foundation. The NEF identified five key actions:
- Being Active
- Connect with People
- Take Notice
- Keep Learning
We will have updates on each topic area.
