Walking on a daily basis is extremely important to keep your brain functioning. After taking an Ommetje, you will be more productive and energetic. It will also help you unwind and increase your creativity. Another advantage of achieving your Ommetje goals every day is the increase of dopamine in your body. Whenever you reach a goal, your dopamine levels will rise, which in turn brings your mood up. This makes you feel good. For these reasons we will be starting with the Ommetje-app challenge today as part of the Healthy University Let’s Walk Week. The challenge will continue until April 29 (23:59).
Ommetje challenge starting March 1st
Healthy University Leiden has created a walking competition for each faculty. Challenge your colleagues by registering a 20-minute Ommetje daily in the Ommetje app. You can walk individually or against others in your faculty*, but also as part of a faculty against other faculties. In addition, you can achieve all kinds of medals and levels in the app. This way you can walk together without having to be at the same location and therefore adhere to the COVID-19 restrictions. For more information, read tehse details on how the app works.
