Take it outside!

As we approach summer months and rising temperatures, people everywhere are excited to get outside, be active, and soak up the sun!

Spending time outdoors is essential to physical, mental, and emotional health. Additionally, according to Julia L. Macrus, an epidemiologist at Harvard Medical School, the risk of coronavirus transmission is lower outdoors.
Spending time outside not only helps us to cope with the stresses of quarantine and the global pandemic, but also helps us to prioritize our physical health through exercise and strengthening our bodies and immune systems.

As long as we practice social distancing and wear masks when we could come in close proximity with others, experts agree that exercise, sunlight, and fresh air are essential now more than ever.

Help your clients encourage their employees to get outdoors safely and promote their wellbeing!
Here are some ideas you can pitch to your clients:
  • Company step challenge
  • Virtual 5k Fun Run/Walk
  • Mile-a-day challenge (bike, walk, run, skip, hop, etc!)
  • Wellness Challenge with multiple categories: Sleep, Exercise, Hydration, Mindfulness
  • Exercise challenge with charity reward
Encouraging team and social participation (#virtual5k) are great ways to ensure the challenges/initiatives stay fun and fresh and keep employees engaged and motivated!
