Here at PCL we have really been learning to surf the waves lately, it has been very busy with opening the new program, moving several people around and hiring many new employees. This is a very exciting time for PCL but it can also become overwhelming and stressful. However, one of the easiest ways to deal with stress and anxiety is through exercise! With that in mind The PCL Wellness committee is thrilled to kick off our annual fitness challenge.The PCL Extreme Makeover Fitness Challenge begins on March 12/18. This challenge is open to all employees and those we support. We have some amazing prizes and lots of fun bonus challenges throughout the 8 weeks to keep you motivated.
Let’s beat this stress!. Go for a Walk, Ride you bike, Pick any outdoor activity and let’s spring clean our mental health. So when you feel your blood pressure rising, remember to ride the waves and get active!
