Challenges

The KPR Health and Wellbeing Committee endeavours to organize a number of challenges throughout the school year to encourage our staff to takes steps to work on their own Health and Wellbeing.

 


For the 2016-2017 school year KPR Health and Wellbeing would like to focus on self-care, by encouraging all staff to care for themselves, managing your physical, mental and nutritional health.  The body, mind, spirit connection is critical to our wellness and this year we would like to support all staff to take steps to improve this connection in their lives. 

This year we will be offering incentives to all staff who take steps to take charge of their own health.  By taking charge of our health we recognize areas where we can take steps to do better and by taking these steps we improve our overall wellbeing.  Take a look at the details below to see how you can work to improve your health and earn rewards at the same time!


Challenge - Take Charge Of Your Health                 and win rewards


Take steps to improve your health and win rewards in the process. 

This year's challenge is about knowing our health risks and taking steps to reduce the risks.

The steps listed to the right will help you to identify these risks and secondly to begin to take actions. 

One huge health crisis in Canada today is Metabolic syndrome.  Knowing your numbers (See Step 2) will let you know if you should be concerned about this health crisis. 

In addition, studies have identified 8 risks and behaviours that account for 80% of all chronic disease.  Taking steps to reduce or eliminate these risks in our life (See Step 3) will be the first step to improving our overall wellbeing.

And finally, hearing about the success and strategies that others have used (See Step 4) is an encouragement to the rest of us.
