Staff meetings are a great time to create a positive work environment through self-care activities. Whether 1 on 1 or in large groups, a meeting break with fun self-care activities can go a long way towards team-building and boosting staff morale. Whether you have a remote team, hybrid team, or fully on-site team, team members everywhere are dealing with high stress levels and could use some self-care activities. Adding carefully prepared wellness activities to staff meetings is an easy way to improve productivity.
Even a 5 to 10-minute break can be used for a simple self-care activity. Getting outside for some fresh air takes employees away from screens and reduces eye strain.
