While what we do at home is certainly important, let’s face it: most of us are spending a high percentage of our waking hours at work. So it just makes sense that it’s a lot easier to maintain a healthy lifestyle when our work culture is “healthy.”
When morning meetings provide fruit and bagels instead of donuts and coworkers choose healthy fare for lunch instead of grazing from the vending machines, our personal health goals can be much easier to achieve. That success climbs even higher when office mates use break time for walking or dedicate 30 minutes after work for fun fitness time together.
So how can you make your worksite a “healthier culture?” Read on to discover three major ways to get you started...
1) Take matters into your own hands.
2) If your workplace offers wellness screenings and classes—Join In!
I am often surprised by how many people struggle with chronic health challenges, yet they don’t take advantage of the wonderful wellness solutions their workplace offers. Why is that? STOP THE EXCUSES and JOIN IN! From smoking cessation programs to Zumba classes, be grateful and participate in the benefits offered. They truly are a health blessing to all!
3) If your worksite doesn’t currently offer something you’re interested in—ASK!
Benefits of a worksite wellness program help both you and your employer!
