Walk the talk during the MEET + MOVE challenge

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Join the Library October 16 to 31 for the Wellness Collaborative's first MEET + MOVE Challenge! Put your walking shoes on, get out of the boredboardroom, and add some movement to your meetings.

Moving (or walking) meetings can have a positive impact on your creativity and mental well-being, and can strengthen social bonds. Getting into the habit will help to decrease sedentary behaviour and raise awareness about building physical activity into your work or school day.
 
The challenge is easy: every time you participate in a moving meeting with your colleagues, let us know for a chance to win a prize! We want to see you in action – upload a photo of your group or share on Twitter with the hashtag #UWMoves for an extra chance at winning.
 
How do you get your meetings moving? Visit the Library’s MEET + MOVE challenge webpage for tips, posters and a pledge sheet to let others know you support the movement. Let’s make moving meetings part of University of Waterloo’s culture.

Walking and talking

 

Check out our MEET + MOVE blog throughout the challenge to learn more from Library staff who have already made this healthy habit a part of their work life.


The Wellness Collaborative was created out of the University of Waterloo’s commitment to embrace wellness in all that we do, through the signings of the Okanagan Charter and the Healthy Workplace Statement. There are many opportunities to get involved in the Collaborative, including nominating a UW Wellness Champion, signing up for the newsletter or participating in the Community of Practice.
