Hollie tells us how she spent her £250 wellbeing bonus:

Life and work can be busy.  Juggling our responsibilities whilst also finding balance and prioritising our physical and mental wellbeing can be a challenge.

Luckily, ReThink HR is a forward-thinking company that recognises the importance of employee wellness, and we were recently each awarded a bonus to spend on something to support our health and wellbeing.

As an active individual who spends a lot of time in the gym and on the yoga mat (as well as carrying some of the stresses of daily life in my shoulders), I decided to use my bonus to purchase a block of massages to help me to relax, as well as to work out some of the knots!

I recently had the first of my massage sessions and could feel the benefits immediately.  Taking the opportunity to slow-down and invest in myself was fantastic, and while the massage wasn’t always pain-free, it was a great opportunity to wind-down.  I definitely felt ‘lighter’ for the rest of the day and my muscles have loosened off already.  I’m looking forward to the next few sessions being able to work a bit deeper on both my physical and mental wellbeing.

Thank you so much, Zoe and Philippa, for investing in the team in this way.  It makes such a difference to work for a company that really cares, and takes a holistic view of work and life.  The benefits of this initiative will be felt not only in my shoulders and at home, but also in being able to bring a sense of wellbeing to work and for our clients.
