How active are you during your working day? Research carried out by the Nutrition and Health Foundation (NHF) found that only one in three workers takes the recommended level of exercise for a healthy lifestyle each week. The NHF are the organisers the National Workplace Wellbeing Day which takes place on 8th April 2016. This is second year of the event which encourages employee health through promoting better nutrition and physical activity.
Many of us work in very sedentary environments, a lack a physical activity combined with unhealthy eating habits can lead to a variety of health concerns. When you consider how much of your day is spent at work, a greater focus on wellbeing in the workplace can only be a good thing. There are many simple ways to encourage greater wellbeing at work:
- Healthy eating initiatives
- Lunch time mile
- Link in with local gyms / fitness classes
Here at Archview Clinic we are working with local offices to promote wellbeing at work. We offer on-site workplace wellbeing days which include postural classes, educational talks, on site physiotherapy and massage sessions.
