PUMAs all over the world engage in well-being & mindfulness activities

June 2, 2023

Self-care and wellbeing are a priority at PUMA. This is why, in the month of May, our PUMAFam all over the world dedicated their efforts to raising awareness for mental health – an integral part of our emotional, social, and psychological well-being. It influences our thoughts, feelings, behaviours, and the way we manage stress and make decisions. Read on to get a glimpse behind the scenes of our PUMAs Be Well activities from Australia to Japan and Ireland to North America.

From Bubble Soccer, Zumba, and bracelet-making to practicing yoga and meditation, or participating in informative sessions led by our Learning Department, self-care takes various forms. Recognizing that everyone has unique needs and diverse approaches to nurturing their bodies and minds, we arranged numerous events worldwide, aiming to inspire and empower our PUMAFam on their self-care journey.

Our PUMAs in Down Under organized their Be Well Week form May 23rd to 25th, starting with a mindfulness & meditation course over lunch. A smoothie van made a vitamin-rich visit on the second day and on the last day, a with a run / walk in the park was organized to clear the head.

Starting on the 22nd of May, our PUMAs in Vietnam kicked their Be Well Week off with a Yoga class, an Inbody workshop and fresh fruit and juice.

The week was filled with mindfulness exercises, a health talk about stress management, meditation or a healthy dose of movement in a Zumba class.

PUMA Korea

Our colleagues in Korea organized two days, dedicated to sports, mindfulness and community engagement. They met in a calming venue that was surrounded by nature and enjoyed the feeling to BE TOGETHER in beautiful mother earth. The concept of this year’s sports event consisted of a blue team and white team sports event that most of Korean elementary school kids do. The activities took our PUMAs back to their elementary school days and put their minds in youthful freshness. The sports day was concluded with a friendly get-together around the fire pit and some nice music and refreshments.

On the second day, our PUMAs engaged in a community activity to help underprivileged children by making soccer goalposts and soccer balls, which have been donated to an orphanage in Korea. We hope the children will play soccer games and become famous soccer players in the future!

Step by step into mindfulness was the cue at our Japanese PUMA office. The employees built teams and competed in a CAT Walk Contest – Over the whole month of May, their daily steps have been counted.
