On Thursday, March 10th, Chesterford Research Park was an oasis of calm as it hosted a Park ‘Wellbeing’ event.
The Nucleus Health & Fitness Centre team were out in force providing gym tours and class info - including a Spinning class demonstration - as well as being on hand to discuss healthy ways to reach your fitness objectives. The restaurant also got into the spirit of the day, creating some superb healthy lunch and snack options for all to try.
In addition, the Park also welcomed the team from Reform Physiotherapy. Specialists in osteopathy, sports massage and nutrition, the Reform team was on hand to discuss these specialities as well as individual queries from those attending. A few lucky visitors even benefitted from a mini massage!
However, perhaps the most serene and tranquil spot at the Park on Thursday was to be found within the Mynd meditation pod, which took up residence in the Nucleus car park! Created to support Wellbeing in the workplace by delivering short, guided mindfulness sessions, the Mynd meditation pod’s calm interior of wooden clad walls, rustic benches and comfortable meditation cushions and mats takes away any unnecessary distractions, allowing participants to focus solely on themselves. The Mynd team held four drop-in sessions across the morning, all of which were extremely popular.
Park Manager, Katherine Maguire, commented: “We are extremely lucky to be surrounded by the most beautiful parkland green spaces here at Chesterford Research Park, which certainly helps encourage our occupiers and staff to take advantage of the opportunity for fresh air and time away from the desk or lab bench throughout the day. Staff Wellbeing is a high priority for us all and we wanted to showcase some additional benefits that our current on-site Park amenity has to offer, as well as invite other local experts to demonstrate their expertise in this area too.”
“Judging by the activity in and around the Nucleus this morning I think we can confidently say the well-being morning was a huge success!’
