Every day at Goodwill, our employees make a difference in the lives of people in need, serving with compassion and initiative. It’s important that our employees also take time to care for themselves.
Some people are wary of wellness programs because they’re worried about being judged for unhealthy habits, or that the program is only for healthy, active employees. But wellness means something different for everyone. Wellness is about improving your all-around well-being in whatever ways are best for you where you are right now. Even small changes can make a difference in your stress level, your confidence and your physical health. Goodwill wants to help our employees be the best they can be so they can continue to serve others in our community.
Healthwise by Goodwill is a wellness community where employees can find support to set and achieve personal goals. Wellness is about more than being physically fit. It is a mindset where one intentionally pursues financial, physical, mental and social well-being.
The Next Wellness Challenge begins
November 1st – November 30th
Saving for a rainy day can also include saving for future expenses you know come every year, such as the holidays! Financial stress around the holidays can be tough. The key is planning ahead and developing a budget for your holiday spending. Saving a little along can ease the financial burden of the holidays, a season when we are supposed to be enjoying time with friends, family and loved ones. We also know that for many, the holidays also bring feelings of loneliness, anxiety and depression. Please feel free to contact our EAP (see the attached brochure) for confidential sessions with a counselor to discuss what stressors you have this time of year.
It’s Financial Wellness Friday!
We hear about saving for a rainy day, so we are going to give away a few Goodwill umbrellas! NOTE: they are the cool, new inverted umbrellas that keep you drier than regular umbrellas! J Want one? Here’s how you can be entered into a drawing:
Go to www.goodwillnwnc.org/healthwise and enter a personal goal under the financial section about how you plan to reduce your financial stress during the holidays.
Everyone who enters a financial goal between now and November 30th will be entered into a drawing for a Goodwill umbrella!
