#MentalHealthAwarenessWeek takes place in May to support better mental health. Once a taboo topic, mental well being is becoming more widely talked about and acknowledged.
Many companies small and large are taking mental health more seriously with and are actively trying to promote wellness amongst their team. Encouraging staff to switch off from their work and take their full lunch break is a good starting point, flexible working hours, providing healthy snacks, and even discounting gym memberships are all ways to support a healthy work lifestyle. Another way to aid mental well being is to gift a ‘wellness pack’ to your team with useful branded items. We have gathered a few ideas below which could form part or all of a wellness pack for your team. Let us know what you think!
Branded Fidget Cubes/Fidget Spinners
Proven to relieve stress and keep the mind and body relaxed, branded fidget items would be a great addition to a wellness pack. Check out our blog where we review these products.
Doodle Colour Therapy
Colouring is a great way to unwind and clear the mind. We can brand doodle colouring notebooks which include lined paper, colouring sets and notepads with crayons.
Gentle physical exercise is also known to help with mental health by releasing ‘feel-good’ hormones. Branded activity trackers and promotional Bluetooth watches are of high perceived value and will more than likely be gratefully received by your staff. You could even gift a branded Frisbee or football and encourage the team to have a game together.
Not forgetting the humble branded stress item! They come in all shapes and sizes, from simple balls right through to vehicles, characters, games and even custom made shapes to suit your brand and what your business does.
And of course you will want a branded bag to put all the items together – whether it be a rucksack, drawstring or cotton shopper.
If you would like any further information about the above branded products or would like us to chat through any ideas, please email us or call on 0114 275 4150.
