It’s been proven that green plants can reduced both mental stress and strain on our eyes. Particularly for those winter months when flowers are not in bloom, some indoor plants can help give employees a vision- friendly boost.
2. Masterchef (Healthy Edition)
Let’s find out who your office Masterchef is!
Organize weekly/ monthly lunches and designate a “chef” (or a few!) to come up with a healthy recipe for the group.
Have employees anonymously rank each meal so you can pick an annual winner (plan a small reward). This is an awesome way for employees to come together over healthy eating.
3. Paint Therapy Thursdays
Painting stimulates the creative mind and allows for mental rest. Thursdays are always full of end-of-week deadlines, which leads to stress. By providing optional Paint Therapy Thursdays once a month or quarter, you can help employees alleviate stress -- even if just for a few hours.
Bring in an expert to lead a class, or just provide supplies (and maybe some wine?) and let your employees get creative on their own!
