A healthy mind in a healthy body
During our online kick-off, General Manager Johnny Smets personally challenged all our employees to collectively accomplish 160,000 minutes of exercise in four weeks. That was the idea behind our 'Positive Flow Challenge'. After all, we can only empower one another if we ourselves are in balance. We must maintain a healthy mind in a healthy body. Exercise is, after all, a way to recharge our batteries. This is very important in such challenging times as these, as it allows us to keep up our collective resilience and energy balance.
All types of exercise were eligible to achieve the goal, meaning the challenge was not just for serious athletes. A daily walk around the block, half an hour of yoga… It all counted towards our goal (excepting the path from our desk to the fridge). Paul Van Den Bosch emphasized the importance of daily exercise during our kick-off. As a professional sports coach, he knows the impact of a healthy lifestyle on our physical and mental well-being better than anyone.
Many colleagues took this message to heart and exercised diligently, registering their activity on Energy Lab's KeepMoving platform. All of us together delivered an excellent performance. We achieved our goal of 160,000 minutes of exercise within those two weeks.
