Today is National Fitness Day (Wednesday 22nd September); a day to celebrate the role that physical activity plays across the UK. It is a day when people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities celebrate the fun of fitness.
Weekend of Wellbeing
Over the last six weeks, we’ve been bringing you a new weekend workout every Friday as part of our #AtHomeWithHost campaign.
And whilst it’s great to keep active and exercise regularly, it’s also important to take a break too; it’s OK not to exercise all the time – your body needs rest too. So, that’s why this week, we’ve decided not to share a new type of workout with you.
Instead, we want you to take some time out. Reflect on the past few weeks and focus on your overall wellbeing – not just exercise. Spread some love, practice self-care and even try something new.
If you’re stuck and don’t know where to begin, you’re in luck. We’ve pulled together a little Wellbeing Challenge for you.
Wellbeing Alphabet Challenge:
You may remember a few weeks ago, we created the Host Alphabet Workout. This week, we’ve taken the same concept but changed the challenges from exercises to wellbeing activities.
So, all you need to do is build your weekend of wellbeing activities by spelling out your Host building name.
Each letter/number of your building’s name is a wellbeing activity to add to your weekend of wellbeing challenge. If you’re a student living with us at an accommodation such as Hope Street Apartments, you’re in for a weekend full of wellbeing!
Even if you’re not living with us at any of our Host accommodations, you can still use the above alphabet list to plan a workout. Why not spell out your name, your street name or the city/town you live in? Whatever goes – so be as imaginative as you like.
Getting serious about the environment we live in.
To become more ‘environmentally friendly’, Host is launching the #HostEnvironmentalPledge campaign to encourage responsible behaviour and drive sustainability across our sites throughout the UK and Ireland.
It’s a simple campaign! If we can reduce our overall utilities (electric, water and gas) consumption by 1% then we will donate £10,000, 2% reduction means £20,000, 3% is £30,000 and so on, to 3 charities; BulliesOut, Planet Patrol and World Land Trust.Show me all news
This week is Recycle Week. And with many students having recently moved into, or about to move into our accommodation, we thought there was no better time to talk about recycling at Host.
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! - The Mid-Autumn Festival also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a traditional Chinese festival celebrating the end of the autumn harvest.
