September - October 2021
National Fitness Day and National Work/Life Week
The themes for September and October highlight two very important topics: Fitness and Work/Life balance. Regular exercise and physical activity promotes strong muscles and bones. It improves respiratory, cardiovascular health, and overall health. Staying active can also help you maintain a healthy lifestyle, as well as contributing to a healthy mindset also.
National Work Life Week is an opportunity for both employers and employees to focus on wellbeing at work and work life balance. Employers can use the week to provide activities for staff, and to showcase their flexible working policies and practices.
Work life balance is important as it allows you to separate work and home, meaning that the stress of work should stay at work, and not follow you outside of office hours. Allowing work stress to affect your home life is one of the key indicators that you are not achieving a work life balance.
