April is a busy month for awareness marketing dates for the whole month, giving you a chance to really take advantage, celebrate and even fundraise for them.

Stress Awareness Month

High-stress levels can lead to poor physical and mental health, it is one of the biggest public health challenges that the UK is facing. Unfortunately, although we all speak about being stressed, we aren’t doing enough about it. 

It is important to raise awareness that being stressed is normal, but everyone should be doing something to reduce their stress, and that there is support available. Reducing stress can reduce other health problems like heart disease, digestive issues, anxiety, and depression.

To help your employees, ensure you are implementing stress support, this could help their productivity and happiness at work!

National Pet Month

National Pet Month (NPM) creates awareness for our furry friends, as well as raising awareness of responsible pet ownership. This is usually celebrated through various pet charities and educational campaigns. Although NPM is celebrated from April to May each year, celebrations and fundraising are carried out throughout the whole year.

The main aim of this campaign is to ensure all pets are being treated with respect and the best care possible. Animals have rights too! By taking part in fundraising activities you can help charities carry on helping disadvantaged animals across the UK. Getting involved in fundraising is a great way to get your company's name out there.

Walk to Work Day

7th April

National Walk to Work Day is a great way to get your steps in, improve your health and save on fuel. Walk to Work Day creates awareness of being mindful of your carbon footprint, something that is starting to be encouraged across the world.

The mornings are getting lighter and the days are feeling slightly warm, so you may feel encouraged to do this once a week. It is guaranteed that walking to work will benefit you, no matter how short the journey is.

If you can’t join in by walking to work, why not try to get the bus for the day, and get your steps in at lunch? Trying something new and getting out of your comfort zone can be beneficial to your mental health, and influence you to start living a healthier life. 

As a business, you could advertise that you are taking part in this, to either help reduce carbon emissions or to improve mental health, or both. This is a great opportunity to get content about your workplace culture and to illustrate that your company is eco-friendly.
