Wellbeing mishaps: when good intentions, go horribly wrong


In this weeks blog, as its National Workplace Wellbeing Day we wanted to have a some fun (and Cathal told us that humour is an important element for your mental wellbeing). Also Jenny hates blogging, curled up in the foetal position and point blank refused to write about her 'learnings from sport' ...


After a number of failed 'blog pitch ideas' from Jenny (for some unknown reason all involving frogs) we compromised and decided to run with 'wellbeing mishaps - what happens when good intentions, go horribly wrong'. We went out on social asking for your stories or friends stores, ahem cough .. and wow, you guys really delivered!

So behold Jenny's #BlogOfDoom - thanks to everyone that sent in their stores, we got such a laugh here at the office from them and hopefully you will too. Naturally we couldn't draw them all, so here are our top 4 replies ...


LAST MINUTE IDEAS FOR WORKPLACE WELLBEING DAY :

Also if you still haven't planned anything for today, don't fret ... here are 10 super ideas that won't cost a penny and you can do them today, its not too late :


(1) THE PIT-FALLS OF AVOCADO PREPARATION :



(2) TOUR DE FINEST - BROGUE BIKING :




(3) COUCH TO 5KG [OF SNOWBALLS] :

This was submitted privately because Claire (not her name, but it may totally be her real name) did not want to be publicly shamed.


'Claire' once watched a Davina McCall fitness video from start to end, while eating an entire box of McCaffreys Chocolate Snowballs


(4) THE DANGERS OF MOOO-VING :



Happy Workplace Wellbeing Day Everyone!

Oh and if you have any wellbeing mishaps you would like 'visually represented' please share them on #BlogOfDoom - as Jenny is due to write another blog in 6 weeks time.
