We’re thrilled to announce Wellbeing Week for Positively Putney. Through the week 18th – 24th May, we’ll have experts discussing ways to help your wellbeing whilst you work from home and cope with working in lockdown, plus physical and mindful sessions for BID members to help reduce stress, increase engagement and activity.
Wellbeing is a combination of looking after your mental health and your physical health and body. It’s the experience of health, happiness and prosperity, literally ‘well-being’ is feeling an all rounded wellness. However, for many people it’s hard to increase wellbeing without knowing how, and in the current crisis it’s been even harder to maintain wellbeing during times of immense stress and worry. So we’ve teamed up with various experts, as well as businesses in Putney who promote wellbeing, to bring you tips and skills which you can use immediately in your lives, both now and ongoing, which can help you improve your wellbeing and the wellbeing of others.
We want everyone to be able to interact and participate in these sessions, therefore if you’re working, furloughed, a resident working from home in Putney, or anyone based in Putney who wants to join in socially, please do!
We hope this week helps people to think more about their own wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of their colleagues, family and friends.
Stay safe everyone.

4pm Eating for Energy with Pandora
With the current situation keeping us all indoors and with less happening in the days to distract us from snacking, staying healthy can prove challenging. Motivation to stay active and eat well seems far more difficult as our energy levels are at an all time low. In this talk, certified personal trainer and nutrition coach, Pandora Ind, will be chatting with Énergie Fitness head coach, Ben KeyStone, about how to sustain a long term, rewarding eating habit.
2.30pm Stretch & Relax with Ben
So much of exercise is focused on pushing your body to the limit, grinding out that extra rep, knocking seconds off your time, lifting heavier and heavier. With this class we look at the other side, the self care side. Get in touch with your body, feel your muscles moving, control your breath. Move through a gentle flow, stretching and loosening the muscles, breathing and tuning into the body, and most importantly accepting that not everything has to be about breaking a sweat and feeling the burn. Sometimes it’s nice just to move slowly…
3pm Activate Connection, Accountability and Productivity during COVID-19 & Beyond
Are you a CEO, MD, FD, HR lead or team manager looking to activate connection, accountability and productivity for the health of your business and employees? As business leaders it is critical to engage your teams to give them purpose and allow you all to make some discoveries along the way. With an energised and engaged workforce, your company will be a high performing, fun place to work, with a winning “WE” mentality which will attract and retain both the people and the customers you want. It’s never too late to challenge the culture that exists and to start creating a new one!
