Wellness Week Wrap-Up

After a fun and eventful Wellness Week, it has officially come to an end. Although this Wellness Week was slightly different, with everything happening online, it was still exciting and packed with heaps of activities, giveaways, competitions, and tips to look after yourself. As always, Wellness Week was about inducing a little bit of joy and spreading happiness, to promote well-being from the emotional down to the physical.

We had heaps of different sessions run by Deakin Active to help with your physical wellness, including challenges, workshops, daily meditation, yoga, pilates, HIIT, core, and even office exercises! There really was something for everyone.

The Lockdown Wellness Photo comp and Cooking Around the World competitions were super exciting and everyone’s entries were amazing! We also were impressed with our DeakinMOVES entries! Congratulations to all of our winners!
