Scilly Stress Relievers

yogaWe are all aware of the benefits that physical activity can have on the body and mind. As a result the Council of the Isles of Scilly’s Health and Wellbeing team have strived to work closely with staff during 2011 to offer taster sessions of stress relieving initiatives to encourage an improved take up of fitness activities.

Both Yoga and Swimming were organised as introductory options and an encouraging take up of sessions was seen amongst the Authority staff members.

The interest in fitness activity hasn’t stopped there, from a survey that was carried out following these taster sessions the Council of the Isles of Scilly is soon to launch the Cycle to Work Scheme for the first time on the islands, and the initial response from staff members to this idea has been overwhelmingly positive.

It’s all go, go, go, from here!
