This year, Mental Health Awareness Week focusses on our connection with nature. During the long months of the pandemic, many of us have turned to nature to clear our minds; coffee catch ups in the park, socially distanced walks, and eventually picnics in the early spring. For good reason, even small moments of contact with nature can reduce feelings of isolation and stress.
At Hudson RPO, mental health and wellbeing are important all year round, but Mental Health Awareness Week was the perfect time to highlight some of our key initiatives, signpost available resources, and organise activities to reconnect with our teams after months of working from home.
Mental Health Awareness Week activities at Hudson RPO were all about connecting, taking time to unwind, and share ideas with each other. Over the week, we shared recipes with each other, created a Spotify playlist of our favourite songs for relaxing, and shared pictures of our ‘chill out spaces’.
On Wellness Wednesday, we kicked off our Step into Summer challenge, where we will walk the distance between our offices in America, the UK and Australia together, and took some well-deserved, scheduled time off. We also started the very first Hudson RPO book club on Thursday and kept active on Friday with an end-of-week workout.
Mental Health Awareness Week 2021 has been a great success thanks to the hard work of our Wellbeing committee, and everyone who participated in the (online) activities. We will continue to share our tips, resources, and support with each other after Mental Health Awareness Week.
