December 2018



The holidays are officially upon us, which bring opportunities to socialize, tempting treats and, for some, added stress. Help your workplace wellness team stay on track while celebrating the season with The Sandbox! Check out this blog for tips on creating comradery or look for ways to incorporate nutritional wellness at work with this forum thread. And, of course, be sure to catch up on the latest from The Sandbox with our recap below!


Sharing your Inspiration

Have you ever wanted to share something that inspired you on The Sandbox? Yes? You’re not alone, which is why we pulled a variety of tips together in Sharing is Caring—to help take your Sandbox experience to a whole new level! Maybe your next inspirational moment will be about how to increase uptake of your wellness initiatives or build (and celebrate!) diverse and inclusive workplaces. Perhaps one of our recent blogs will motivate you to take a hike—it’s up to you whether that’s literally or figuratively!
