Will you join us?

Challenge your colleagues!

Taking a walk every day is important for your health. You are more productive at work and you will feel more energized after walking an “Ommetje” (a short walk). It also helps you to slow down and improves your creativity. For these reasons the Ommetje app challenge will be starting Monday 1st of March as part of the Healthy University-Let’s Walk Week 2021 and will extend until April 30th ! Ommetje is an initiative of the Brain Foundation, created in collaboration with professor of neuropsychology Erik Scherder. Healthy University Leiden has created a walking competition for each faculty or department. Challenge your colleagues by registering a 20-minute Ommetje daily in the Ommetje app (https://www.hersenstichting.nl/ommetje/). You can walk individually or against others in your team, but more importantly also joined as a faculty or department against other faculties or departments. In addition, you can achieve all kinds of medals and levels in the app. This way you can walk together without having to be at the same location. 

The Healthy University Leiden team will look at both individual and/or team group scores. The top 3 individuals and the top 3 groups will be announced as the winners on April 30th. Both you and your colleagues stand the chance to win great prizes! Half way through the challenge , on April 7th, which is the World Health Day, you will see your standing against your other colleagues and/or teams.
