Synergy Health are the team behind  GoodForYou - your personalised wellbeing program that provides the tools and support you need to improve your health and mental wellbeing.  They have a wide, varied and constantly growing range of wellness resources for you to access from their group of experts. Whether it's fitness, diet, sleep, social connection or competition,  they take a holistic approach to getting the most out of life.

We regularly feature articles from The Synergy Health team and here they've created a series of articles that will help us stay safe and well this summer. 



Summer is a great time of year as we typically have more energy and longer days to spend outside doing the things we love. The warmer months typically optimise social events, BBQ's, beach trips, activities, etc. While these are fun, they can bring danger if you make rookie mistakes such as getting into trouble around water, sunburn, or dehydration. We encourage you to stay safe even if you work inside and only head out for a walk or to eat lunch.
