Stress Down Day is a wonderful initiative of Lifeline that Arcare Taigum is a part of.
It provides a great opportunity for workplaces to realise the importance of ensuring an environment that prioritises the wellbeing of all their team members.
Here at Arcare Taigum, team members were asked to wear a onesie or their pyjamas to show their support for this initiative.
Cathy, the lifestyle coordinator and Janelle, the residence manager cooked up a BBQ breakfast for team members to start the day.
Lifestyle had also rearranged the theatre into a stress-down zone for staff. There were colouring books on tables, bubbles, kinetic sand, relaxing music, soothing aromatherapy oils and play dough for everyone to enjoy.
Feeling relaxed is also very good for overall productivity and mood! We care about the wellbeing of all our team members here at Taigum so we do our best to make them feel relaxed.
Furthermore, we show them they are valued and that always brings a happy smile to their face when they come to work.
Having a positive attitude definitely helps to keep you going through the workday!
