What is Leeds Wellbeing Week?
Leeds Wellbeing Week has been created to bring together the wellbeing and corporate worlds around a series of wellbeing events all around the city of Leeds.
This recurring event is in line with Leeds Growth Strategy: Two of Leeds Growth Strategy’s 2020 challenges are "Health and Wellbeing" and "Productivity", and more specifically to "encourage active healthy lifestyles" and to "increase productivity".
The first edition (Easter 2017) took place in 4 different workplaces in Leeds City Centre: Wrigleys Solicitors, Brewin Dolphin, Headway Recruitment and PricewaterhouseCoopers. These companies enjoyed 4 complementary wellbeing sessions: meditation, yoga, massage and relaxation. In addition, the first edition of ‘Find Happiness in your Workplace’ was hold at Workspace Hub, in Hentons building, and generated positive sparkles and a great impact!
Given this great success, Leeds Wellbeing Week is happening again… soon!
This second edition is expanding, and focuses on the workplace as well as the public space. It will enable Leeds and Yorkshire's citizens to:
take part to the FIRST mindful triathlon in the UK: Mindathlon, (4/11/17, 9am, Woodhouse Moor Park) with all the profits going to Leeds Mind, organised by Mind It and Team Activ, and supported by The Edge, We Are Wellness and Insight for Wellbeing.
enjoy mental and/or physical wellbeing sessions in your workplace if you registered as a company, like Sky Betting and Gaming’s Leeds office.
Attend many free events all around the city of Leeds: Free yoga classes, free introduction to climbing, free digital app design, free personal development sessions… All the details are on Leeds Wellbeing Week’s website.
“Our goal is to raise awareness on mental and physical health at the scale of the city, not only in workplaces, because people remain the same at home, at work, in the streets of Leeds…” (Lucile, Founder)
