Members of ZOU staff during the wellness day in Harare.
Wellness is the recognition that individuals have a responsibility to take care of themselves physically, emotionally and psychologically. The Zimbabwe Open University, in partnership with Fidelity Life, organised a well-attended Wellness Day that gave staff members the opportunity to freshen and re-energise their bodies on 21 September 2018.
The purpose of the day was to establish a work environment that promotes healthy lifestyle, decrease the risk of life and enhance the quality of life.
The University staff played against each other in sporting disciplines such as volleyball, five- aside soccer, and tug of war.
The event received overwhelming support from staff members who said that they benefited a lot through the various body exercises conducted on the day.
