#Talk To Us
It’s so important to look after our wellbeing when working from home, particularly as contact with our colleagues is often limited to video calls and virtual meetings. During July, the Samaritans are running the #TalkToUs campaign to raise awareness and let people know that they are there for anyone who needs someone to listen, 24/7, without judgement or pressure.
National Picnic Week
What’s in your picnic?
22nd-28th June is national picnic week and picnics are a great way to enjoy the fresh air and encourage you to take an extended lunch break. Fill it with lots of seasonal fruit and salads for a healthy picnic. Grab your picnic rug and blanket and head outside for some vitamin D – don’t forget your sunscreen! Or as the weather doesn’t look so sunny for Plymouth this weekend why not have an indoors picnic instead.
