The only rule being it?s a different group that collects the treats every week so that everyone has a chance to get out. Give everyone who has a note written about them the grace to go home situps early, or buy them a coffee. The only rules are that the food has to be healthy! Healthy food helps employees concentrate for longer and is more filling. The action of providing healthy snacks shows employees that management values its workforce?s wellbeing. Here are some ideas for Wellness Wednesday: HEALTHY COOKING CONTEST If your office is set up into teams; plan the month in advance, as to which team will cook each week. Beat those hump day feelings! Add to it every week, and at the end of the month let your colleagues keep the ones that are written about them. After two long days in front of the computer, thinking about that upcoming deadline, or maybe just what you should have for dinner, it?s not surprising Wednesdays feel like a bit of a drag. It also gives them huge brownie points with the other members of the office, as they are treated to a well needed drink. At the end of the week, nominate someone to read them and deliver them to the people who are named on them.How to beat those hump day feelings in the office! We all need a pick me up in the middle of the week. Many people have fitness trackers or the ability to count steps on their phones in their pockets.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT JAR Similar to the wellness wall, but less time-consuming; place a jar in a communal area, and every time a colleague does something helpful, or goes above and beyond, write it down on a little note and pop it in the jar. HEALTHY SNACKS PROVIDED Create a communal drawer, perhaps in the staff kitchen and regularly fill it with /fruit for the staff to dip in and out of when they start to feel peckish. Just a gesture from the boss is sometimes enough for employees to feel valued. Then, at the end of the month, vote for your favourite Wednesday Wellness Lunch. Why not buy a different snack every week, meaning team members try new things. Try choose a over a however! WEDNESDAY WELLNESS WALL Create a space on a wall that everyone can see and once a week designate time for employees to write something about a colleague that would make them smile. Create a wall or white board area and challenge staff to get the most steps recording their amount during working hours. This might encourage them to go for a walk on their lunch break, or have walking meetings instead of staying in front of their screens. It might motivate others and encourage a healthier life style as well!. The only rule here is that you have to write about someone different every week. It puts a smile on everyone?s face and gets people talking. Why not consider setting up something for a Wednesday that you and the team can look forward to?
