(Woodbury, MN – May 19, 2020) – Hoping to raise spirits and spread a little joy, Ideal Credit Union’s Wellbeing Champions Committee launched a four-week “Make it an Ideal Day” Positivity Challenge to help people remain positive in these uncertain times, and encourage employees and members to focus on something positive that happened in their day – each and every day. As part of the positivity challenge, participants receive a “Make it an Ideal Day” bracelet to wear as a reminder to stay positive throughout the day and look for the silver lining.
Originally designed as an internal wellness initiative, Ideal’s Wellbeing Champions Committee quickly realized the value and importance of inviting members to join in. Ideal employees introduce the “Make it an Ideal Day” initiative to members in the drive-thru and ask if they would like to be a part of the Ideal CU Positivity Challenge. Those who agree receive a bracelet and are encouraged to visit Ideal CU’s Facebook page for daily motivational messages and updates.
“The goal of our Ideal CU Positivity Challenge is to help provide quick, easy to implement tools, like our Ideal Day journal and physical activity suggestions, that only take one to five minutes to complete and help us keep a positive mindset as we face these unprecedented times,” said Ideal Wellbeing Champion Chairperson Jennifer Foss. “May is Mental Health Awareness Month, so we felt the timing is ‘ideal’ as well.” The “Make it an Ideal Day” positivity challenge will run through the end of May.
