As part of our ongoing focus on health and wellness within Lemon HQ, in July we introduced a nifty little number for the team to try out: Habit sticks.
They are part of a wider initiative run by allright.org.nz, as a means to introduce positive habits to your day-to-day life. Things like making your bed every morning, stopping adding sugar to your coffee, or spending 30 minutes outside every day.
Rather than trying to focus on bigger goals, it’s often easier to simply make smaller, more manageable changes each day, and having a physical reminder to tick them off each time really reinforces that new habit.
The majority of the team were keen to try them out, with some people having several different habit sticks on the go at a time!
We will be collecting them at the end of the month with a random prize draw for everyone that completes their habit stick. It’ll be great to find out how everyone went, and what kind of impact the sticks have made.
Will the Habits stick?
Early this month one of our team went along to a talk run by the Chamber of Commerce on mental health in the workplace, and it was really enlightening to hear what went on.
We were all really pleased to hear that the speaker recommend Habit sticks as one way to improve mental wellness!
We’ll be focusing on some of the tips from that talk in the coming months, so keep a look out for what we’ve got planned for the team.
