Health Tips For Your Team


We find that one of the easiest ways to keep employees engaged in your health and wellness program is through constant communication.  Consider adding a space each month in your newsletter for one or two health and wellness tips that are targeted for your population.

Here are a few of our favorites: 

  • For every hour of work you do, take a 5-minute break away from your desk.

  • Wipe down your keyboard, phone and mouse once a week.

  • Create a meal plan. Packing a lunch saves money and calories!

  • Work out at your desk! Try shoulder shrugs, arm swings and knee raises.

  • Park further away from the office to get a brisk walk in before and after work.

  • Get some fresh air – go for a lap or two around the building during your break.

  • Snack right. Bring almonds, fresh fruit or chopped veggies to work.

  • Keep your work area clean and organized to relief stress and prevent germs!

When coming up with your own health and wellness tips and initiatives, remember to go beyond the typical exercise and nutrition genres. Keep in mind that health is about body, mind and spirit. Incorporate advice about how to relieve stress, keeping a positive work/life balance, getting enough sleep, laughing and bonding with coworkers.
