30 June 2021

World Wellbeing Week takes place to provide the opportunity for us to promote a global ‘awareness for the wide-ranging aspects of wellbeing, including social, physical, emotional, financial, career, community and environmental wellbeing’. [1]

It’s the end of World Wellbeing Week 2021, which takes place on the 21st of June until the 30th, and we wanted to ask the digital marketing team at Givey some wellbeing-related questions.

How do you look after your wellbeing?

“Well, I take time during the morning, before I start working, to have a good breakfast and a nice coffee. If I don’t do it, it looks like my day did not start well. I try to exercise at least twice a week and during the weekend I spend time with my friends and disconnect a bit from social media. Sometimes I spend time with nature and it’s good to recharge.” – Gabriela
“Having a routine before starting work to get in the zone and wake up completely is super important, as the aspect of travel has been taken out of my day when working from home. Apart from that, taking time away from electronics and winding down, having a self-care routine for both physical and mental health and zoning out from the world by watching something helps.” – Jaspreet
“Every morning I take the time to do some meditation and go out for walks with my friends and family. I also write to express my feelings through poetry.” – Ella
“Spend time with my closest friends.” – Gemma

What do you enjoy doing most that gives your energy?

“Lately I’ve been watching movies and series a lot. I have also been reading some books that I procrastinated about for so long. Exercise is something that gives me energy and good sleep quality too.” – Gabriela
“Lately it has been working out weirdly. Listening to music. motivational videos or podcasts. Memes.” – Jaspreet
“I have been enjoying watching new Netflix series. And going on walks in the woods with my family.” – Ella
“10 minute exercises 2/3 times a week.” – Gemma


Name a song which makes you feel happy.

“Friday I’m In Love by The Cure.” – Ella
“This is me from the greatest showman.” – Jaspreet
“Levitating by Dua Lipa.” – Gabriela
“My daughter and I enjoy singing and dancing to Justin Timberlake – ‘can’t stop that feeling’. Makes us feel happy and joyful.” – Gemma
