Health and Wellbeing - April 2012

27 Mar 2012

With Peter O'Rourke

It’s time to get Active Melbourne!

Have you ever sat at your desk and tried to proofread a piece of work you were constructing for hours, only to be told by a passing colleague that you have made an extremely obvious mistake?

There is great truth to the notion that it is extremely advantageous to have a fresh set of eyes proofread your work, whatever your occupation may be. By doing this you can potentially reduce the numbers of mistakes you might have made or even provide you with a different perspective for presenting the material you have collated.

Alternatively by getting out from behind your desk and becoming active, you will find when you return to your own desk, that even YOU can become a fresh set of eyes for your own work. Having taken your eyes away from your computer screen, you will be amazed by the attention to detail your fresh mind can achieve upon your return. It might be as simple as taking the stairs instead of the elevator on your way into or out of the office, or as rewarding as participating in a corporate sports series.

AMCS health and wellness programs

The most effective and timesaving method to kick-start your pathway to a healthier work environment involves participating in one of the fantastic health and wellness programs that Active Melbourne City Sports can offer you.

City Soccer

Soccer can lay claim to being the world’s most popular sport and, with over 200 countries and 250 million people participating, the numbers don’t lie.

More recently, the evolution of the five-a-side soccer has seen another increase in popularity and involvement due to the great advantage that the shorter format offers. This includes: only five players per team required for registration; unlimited substitutions; quick restarts from dead-ball situations; small and compact soccer pitches; fitness and team building opportunities and much more.

On April 20 the City Soccer biannual five-a-side soccer tournament will return, providing a chance to showcase team work and unity outside the office environment.  The City Soccer format of competition is a one-day event which incorporates a Round Robin system. Teams play qualifying games to progress through to the semi-finals and eventually the grand final.

The competition is held at the fantastic Flagstaff Gardens precinct which is extremely accessible to all areas of the Docklands and Melbourne CBD. Please register your interest as places are strictly limited.
