Stress Down Day – July 29 – Support Lifeline

Laugh lots to stress less

Stress Down Day 2016
Research shows that some 74% of Australians feel stressed at work. On Friday 29 July have some fun at work, get to know your colleagues and reduce stress levels. Why not come to work in fancy dress, throw a morning tea or hold a joke-telling contest? Have a bit of fun on Stress Down Day

At the same time you can support Lifeline Adelaide. They want to raise $12,500 to enable their Crisis Support Workers to answer 500 calls from people in crisis.

To find out how your workplace can get involved in Stress Down Day, please contact Kat at Lifeline on 8202 5656 or via email. #stresslessSA

On Stress Down Day, You could…

Host your own morning tea
Host a morning tea at work, school or for your friends. Include a donation upon entry into morning tea and also set up donation boxes for people to contribute as they enjoy the treats! Include some games like ‘guess how many lollies in the jar’ and people can pay a gold coin donation to guess. You can add in some little quirks like if anyone mentions work during morning tea they have to donate a gold coin!

Hold a worst ‘dad joke’ competition
We have all heard them, it’s now time to share them with everyone and see how funny you really are. Set up a ‘worst dad joke’ competition and charge a gold coin entry fee and get the crowd to judge who has the best (or worst) joke. Perfect way to lighten the mood in the office.

Have a trivia competition
Take 15 minutes out of your busy day to do a trivia challenge with your work mates. Most local papers have daily trivia questions and for every question you get right participants donate a gold coin and for every question you get wrong you can up the ante! This is a great way to laugh with your colleagues and test your knowledge.

Dress up and hold a fashion parade – best or worst stress down outfit
Stress Down Day’s aim is to have fun and laugh! What better way to do this than dressing up or dressing down! Hold a fashion parade for the best and worst stress down outfits. This could be your PJs, slippers, fancy dress or your favourite characters – just don’t forget to laugh! And if you don’t dress up or stress down you have to make a donation to the host.

Dare your boss to dress up as a superhero for the day
Get all your colleagues on board and challenge your boss on Stress Down Day! Get everyone involved and raise as much as you can to see them strut their stuff as a superhero. The more money you raise the longer they have to stay dressed up!

Do yoga
Do you know someone who teaches yoga and could spare their lunch time for one day to help a national charity? Get everyone relaxed for the rest of the day by hosting a yoga class! Participants can feel good and help raise funds for Lifeline while stretching out.
