Any amount of physical activity during the day helps. A few minutes 2 or 3 times during your work day counts. Try a few of these or create your own:
There are no shortages of candy dishes, vending and soda machines, and potlucks at work, which makes it difficult to start or keep healthy eating habits. A little planning and know-how goes a long way.
Stress can affect work productivity as well as emotional and physical health. Taking an occasional brain break can help. Try these or create your own.
Policies related to food options, including vending machines, cafeteria offerings, concessions and foods brought to meetings are a good place to start.
These programs help employees achieve and maintain individual and group-based wellness goals and can often improve employee productivity. Free, online programs such as the Arkansas Healthy Employee Lifestyle Program and the Community Healthy Lifestyle Program are great tools.
