This Friday is #WorldKindnessDay and kindness in 2020 is more important than ever – especially being kind to ourselves! Kindness to others often comes naturally to us but sometimes being kind to ourselves is a little bit harder.

One way to be kind to ourselves and look after our physical and mental health and wellbeing, is to stay active.

Research has found that physical activity can improve the quality of our sleep, lift our mood and help us manage stress and anxiety. Check out our other Wellness at Work pieces via the Wellness tab on bulletin to find out more information on how to maintain our physical and mental wellbeing, in a variety of ways.  

We’ve teamed up with Virgin Active here at Blythe Valley Park to help spread some kindness! We have 5 sets of 2 day passes for 2 people to give away – to be used once Virgin has re-opened.

In order to be in with a chance of winning a set of these, all you need to do is follow us on Instagram, like the post related to the giveaway and comment on it who you would make your gym buddy and use the passes with.
