Wellness Corner: How do I encourage wellness at my company?

Written by Valerie Au on January 30, 2017. Posted in Well-Being


The workspace has a tremendous influence on our personal wellbeing. A healthy workspace influences our choices and habits. Good design has been proven to improve productivity and collaboration and elicit mental and physical reactions that positively impact physical health, emotional well-being(mental health) and cognitive health.

Workplace wellness efforts don’t have to cost a lot, you just need to get creative and be willing to think outside the box. You can implement easy changes such as introducing standing desks or creating an area for exercise or meditation. Offering healthier options at work is another simple change—provide healthy office snacks like fruit instead of junk food, or replace the vending machine sodas with water. Consider workplace policies that encourage wellness by providing support and permission to engage in wellness practices.
