For people who have never given much thought to the way they eat, sleep, work, and live, the very concept of adopting a healthy lifestyle can seem overwhelming.
An overabundance of advice, some of it contradictory, confuses things further. People who have to sort through the vast amount of information out there regarding what to eat, how to exercise, and why to get more sleep may well end up throwing in the towel before they even begin to make changes.
Lucky for your employees, they don’t have to figure it out by themselves. You’re there to guide the way, weeding out the fitness myths and the diet misconceptions and offering them real solutions to make a real difference in their overall health and wellness.
And because it’s a big job to take on solo, you might consider holding a health fair for your staff. Bringing in experts in a variety of relevant fields to share information and resources is an effective way to spread the responsibility (and add the value of expertise).
Your workers will benefit from the health-fair offerings, and you will benefit from the results of having a better-informed staff armed with the tools they need to begin improving their own health.
Start planning your health fair now, and try these ideas on for size:
