Although the pandemic has finally come to an end, remote and hybrid working environments are here to stay. Remote work can be isolating and employees may struggle to find a balance between work and their personal lives. That’s where virtual employee wellness activities come in. Remote Team Wellness is a leader in virtual employee wellness classes and programs. In this article, we’ll explore our top five virtual employee wellness activities to keep your remote/hybrid team healthy and engaged.
#5 A Virtual Employee Deskercise Wellness Activity
Remote employees spend long hours sitting at their desks, which can lead to health problems like back pain, neck pain, and poor posture. This virtual employee wellness activity helps keep employees active in mind and body leading to decreased health risks, improved mental wellness, and increased energy levels. Deskercise is a unique way to combat these problems and promote physical well-being among your remote team.
This virtual employee wellness activity involves simple strength and mobility exercises that can be done while sitting at a desk, and how to correct the effects of sitting at a desk all day.

#4 A Virtual Employee Storytelling Wellness Activity
Stories help us understand others and ourselves. Storytelling is an essential part of human communication and has been used for centuries to convey information and build connections. According to a Harvard Business Review study, remote employees are 52% more likely to feel left out and lonely. Virtual storytelling is a unique way to foster a sense of community and build trust within your remote team.
In this virtual employee wellness activity, you and your team will dive into storytelling in a fun and unexpected way. You will workshop what will become your signature connective tale. Join our experts for a virtual storytelling session, and learn how to foster meaningful interactions within your team and beyond.
#3 A Virtual Employee Meditative Doodling Session
Meditation is a proven stress reliever and has been shown to improve focus and overall well-being. However, for some people, sitting in silence and meditation can be challenging. This activity combines the benefits of meditation with the creative outlet of doodling. Participants are led through a guided meditation while simultaneously doodling. This helps to engage the mind and promote relaxation, all while allowing for a creative outlet.
This remote employee activity works the area of your brain that activates the right hormones and chemical responses to combat stress and boost creativity. All levels of doodle skills are welcome, so join our expert art therapists for a doodling break!
