Moving more for our mental health

In light of Mental Health Awareness Week, and keeping in line with the theme of 'Movement: moving more for your mental health', we thought we would find out what the team does to prioritise movement for their mental health and overall well-being.

The results were interesting! From the adrenaline rush of accuracy landing (sky diving), to mountain climbing, it's inspiring to see the broad range of diverse activities that keep everyone at REDS moving.

Regular movement is one of the most important things you can do to help protect your mental health. At REDS, we prioritise work-life balance, actively encouraging our team to pursue their passions outside of work. Our mental well-being always matters.
