Learning about workplace wellness ideas for a healthier future

Workplace wellness ideas

Factors that affect your fitness health and wellness are called to account when we find ourselves unable to complete simple daily tasks at work or in our daily lives.

Recently, I woke up in the night with such a painful lower back pain that I collapsed, revived later by a paramedic. Now, even though I am in my fifties I feel that I am quite fit and healthy. I attend the local gym two to three times a week and I walk to work. In addition, I try to eat healthily and take a daily dose from the doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack.

Yes, I thought, I was doing all the right things. However, still I have become ill from a bad back and other small ailments. So, I decided to go through a checklist in my daily routine to see if I am doing anything that may be of concern in for example my working, social and family life.

  • Walk to and from work (60 minutes a day)
  • Gym 2 to 3 times a week
  • Going for a drink with friends on Fridays
  • Healthy and homemade food
  • doTERRA Lifelong Vitality supplements
  • doTERRA essential oils for ailments
  • Walking the dog twice a day (Longer walks on weekend)
  • I don’t smoke

Everything seemed to be satisfactory apart from a few drinks on a Friday, which I feel the social benefits outweigh the health aspects of drinking. However, what I wasn’t thinking about was my work activities. When I started to look at my daily work life I realized that I was mainly slumped over a computer for most of the day. This position was not helpful in any way and I am sure I was not at my best while sitting in this way.

How to develop wellness activities at work

Amazingly, the solution was quite simple. I purchased a standing table which I realized I also needed to do at home. Also, starting a few daily table workouts during the day has also helped.

In addition to a slight change in my daily wellness plan I also saw that even though I became very ill, because of my past fitness and wellness routine my recovery time was very fast. So, in a short time I was back at the gym and enjoying a normal life as I had before.

Another issue for me in my workplace is the amount of sweet sugary snacks available. I simply try to avoid them by bringing an apple or some other fruit to work. If you have some weight issues also, I would suggest Slim and sassy blend in a bottle of water to reduce cravings.

The reality is having a healthier lifestyle is a matter of being realistic as well as proactive. If you are in your twenties you are of course fit or if you are not you should be. However, once we become forty and onward, we need to step up and stop procrastinating and work on maintaining a healthier routine.

  • Walking rather than going by car
  • Attend a gym or start a sport rather than sitting and watch sports on the television
  • Eating homemade food rather than proceed food
  • Choosing the healthy option rather than sugary donuts

These will not have a massive impact in itself, but it will over time make you feel better and when you are ill, you will have the strength to recover far more quickly than others of your age and situation.

So, next time the factors that affect your fitness, health and wellness are called into question after an illness, think about what you can do for your own well-being. Consider what activities you can modify such as the activities you do at home while promoting better wellness activities at work and in your daily life.

Since becoming a doTERRA Wellness Advocate I have found that creating a healthier lifestyle does not mean completely living a sad and unhappy life of daily workout and tasteless health foods. It simply means making changes that suit you while helping you feel healthier.
