TAUNTON-based health insurer WPA is aiming to energise and revitalise its staff and customers after the festive season.

It has created three Recharge weekly initiatives working on the body, diet and mind.

The programme includes continuing to wok with five-time Olympian Jo Pavey and her inspiring running tips.

There is a partnership with the Headstrong podcast featuring Joe Wicks to address vulnerabilities and getting people to talk about their mental health.

And wellness consultant Annie Clarke is providing a video series full of relaxing yoga and mindfulness techniques to help de-stress, along with five of her health-conscious recipes to kickstart the New Year.

WPA will include activities such as staff health checks and a smoothie bike where staff, with a range of fresh ingredients, will be able to blend their favourite Recharge smoothies while cycling.

There will also be significant new content on the WPA Health and Wellbeing hub, a treasure trove of useful videos and articles, available to all, to nudge individuals beyond WPA to a healthier lifestyle.

Mark Southern, WPA’s sales and marketing director, said: "Many of us start the New Year with the best of intentions - getting fit, losing weight or just feeling a bit better about ourselves”.

“Join us in embracing Recharge January towards a healthier, more energised and more productive 2024. putting a spring in our step, well before spring arrives.”

Annie Clarke said: "To feel our best, we need to think about our wellbeing holistically.

"Finding an approach that supports both our bodies and minds is important at any time of the year, but especially during the winter months where we can really focus on diet, movement and mindful practices to support ourselves in navigating whatever 2024 will bring."
