Humber Coast and Vale Wellbeing Support for Desk Based Colleagues

Following the success of our first programme of support for desk based colleagues we are delighted to launch the next programme of webinars and movement sessions beginning in November. We continue to work in partnership with HÄLSA Wellbeing to offer a programme of support to promote our wellbeing through these winter months and into the new year. Why not join us for some chair yoga or relaxation movement and learn about the benefits of digital detox and winter nutrition and hydration? You can book your sessions via https://bookwhen.com/Halsa-NHSHumber. Here’s what some people have said:

“After attending this session I will pay more attention to my posture whilst sitting at my desk and working. I found the information and exercise demonstrations informative and helpful and I could tell the difference in a positive way after doing this session”

“The techniques were well explained and easy to do so I will put them in practice in the future”

“The exercises were really good, not too many repeats and lots of adaption depending on your ability. I will do these exercises more regularly”

“There are many of the exercises that I can do in short (5 minute) bursts throughout the day.  I have set a reminder on my phone for every hour to get up and move.”
