Create Your Own Pop-Up Wellbeing Event

Everything you need to create a pop-up wellbeing event in your organisation

A pop-up wellbeing event provides employees with an ad-hoc wellbeing experience designed to:

  • Reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and increase employee engagement
  • Provide employees with tools and resources to proactively support their wellbeing
  • Highlight the internal and external support available
  • Boost employee morale, happiness and wellbeing
  • Demonstrate your commitment to supporting employee wellbeing

Your pop-up wellbeing event is what you make it. Typically, organisations run various activities and wellbeing sessions to give employees the opportunity to try new things, talk about mental health and build on their personal toolkits. The best pop-up wellbeing events are those that are inclusive and support the wellbeing needs of your employees. When planning your event, you therefore need to keep this in mind. For organisations that work remotely, video conferencing and breakout sessions will be your best friend! For those in a physical location, utilise your space effectively. You might choose to block out a whole day or an afternoon to run everything at the same time or opt to run each activity on a different day across a specific week. The choice is yours – but hopefully, the contents of this page will lighten the load when planning your pop-up wellbeing event!

Wellbeing Pop-Up Ideas & Resources

Here, we have provided you with everything you need for six ‘wellbeing stations’, as well as other ideas to consider. You do not need to use all of them, feel free to pick and choose the ones you believe will land well in your workplace.

The Power of Breathing

Regular intentioned breathing can be great for our overall wellbeing and can help with minimising stress. This can be done together or alone.

Mindful Meditation

Have a go at this great introductory meditation with your teams to calm both your mind and body. We recommend doing it together, but it can be done individually too.


Gratitude Journaling

The true practice of gratitude aims to encourage deep reflection. Why not teach employees how to get started at your pop-up?
