January can seem like a grey month, but for us at OutserveWeb, it’s red.
The charity, Mind, has partnered with the RED January community initiative, in order to promote mental health wellbeing by encouraging participants to do something active every single day.
It can be difficult to find a focus and so RED January empowers participants to celebrate all achievements. Our team is taking part and we encourage you to do the same! It’s one activity a day and you can choose what to do and how relaxed or intense the activity is.
Some of our daily activities will include:
- Dog walking
- Going to the gym
Activities such as walking a pet help you physically, mentally and also socially, as it’s a great way to get to know your community and strike up a conversation with other animal owners.
And we are pleased to say that this initiative has inspired one of our team members to take the stairs up to our second-floor office, instead of using the lift.
At OutserveWeb, we have a set of values that we aspire to continue to develop in our workplace. One of these values is having a positive attitude to mental health and support. Read Our Values here.
It’s never too late to take part and discover more information about the cause. Read more about RED January here.
