Scientifica takes on 50,000 Minutes of Movement for Mental Health Awareness Week

Last year, in support of Mental Health Awareness Week (MHAW) the Scientifica global team successfully completed the challenge of covering 365 miles. This year, we're switching things up a bit and aiming to rack up 50,000 minutes of movement in May!

Why movement?

The theme for the 2024 MHAW campaign is movement, with a focus on encouraging people to integrate moments of physical activity into their daily routines. This initiative aims to highlight the well-documented benefits that exercise offers for our mental health. Research from Mental Health UK showed that 56% of people found that exercising regularly helped them to alleviate stress and prevent burnout in their lives.

50,00 minutes

We've chosen to set a goal based on minutes to embrace all forms of movement. Whether it's lifting weights, practicing chair yoga, going for a stroll at lunchtime, or simply dancing around to your favourite song, every activity contributes to our collective goal!

Join us!

Stay tuned to our social media pages as we track our progress and share updates on this challenge. Why not get involved? Share a photo (selfies are very much welcomed) on social media of any minutes you have completed. Don’t forget to tag us and use the hashtag #MHAW #MovementforourMinds
