Over the weekend I was talking with a colleague of mine about the importance of your environment and the huge role it plays in your lifestyle. Let’s face it, we spend a large majority of our day at work. Who do you work with? Are your hours reasonable? Does your office take priority over exercise often? How often are treats brought into your office? Does your boss or manager see the benefit of regular exercise for his/her employees? If you look around and you don’t feel that you are supported in your everyday environment? It is going to be so much harder to change over your habits without a super strong willpower.
Most of the largest companies in the world like GE, Mayo Clinic, Twitter, Google, all help promote wellness within their company and it shows with their retention rate and overall positive vibes to keep everyone happy.
Take a look at your surroundings and be sure to set yourself (and your office environment) up for success. If you see things that are not promoting health and wellness, create change by starting the initiative yourself or talking to management on ideas you can do to help create a healthier work environment for everyone.
