In the fast-moving world of tech, it’s easy to forget about taking care of our bodies when we’re busy working on computers all day. We’ve all experienced the strain of staring at screens for hours on end. Backaches, stiff necks, and tired eyes are just some of the issues that come with a sedentary work life.
Making sure we move regularly is really important for staying healthy and feeling good. Exercise doesn’t just help with physical problems, it also makes us feel happier by releasing chemicals that boost our mood and reduce stress. It’s also key for keeping a good weight and reducing the risk of serious illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
It’s not hard to add more movement to our day. Taking short breaks to stretch, going for a walk at lunch, or joining a sports team after work can all make a big difference. Moving more doesn’t just keep us healthy, it also helps us stay focused and work better. So let’s get up and get moving for a healthier, happier life!
To counter these challenges, we’ve come up with a solution that encourages our team to take a break and prioritize their health: The Wellpass – a cool benefit that encourages everyone to stay active, even when they’re sitting at their desks. It encourages our team members to take a step back from their screens and invest in their health.
One of the most remarkable aspects of the Wellpass is its inclusivity. Regardless of where our employees are located, they can access a wide array of partner fitness studios and facilities. From local yoga studios to high-intensity CrossFit gyms, there’s something for every taste and fitness level. We firmly believe that offering diverse fitness options fosters an inclusive environment where everyone can find an activity that resonates with them personally.
Through the Wellpass, we strive to cultivate a culture of holistic well-being within our organization. It’s about empowering our team members to take charge of their health and prioritize self-care. We want them to discover the joy of movement and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. After all, a healthy body doesn’t just lead to a more productive mind; it also contributes to a more vibrant and resilient workforce.
Also this year, we took a step further in our commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle as we proudly participated in the Frankfurt Marathon. By joining events like this, we hope to inspire our team to set their own fitness goals and enjoy being active. We believe that taking part in such activities can bring us closer together as a team, creating a friendly and encouraging workplace.
