Sanford Monthly Education -Removing barriers to health
Many people struggle to change their health. Most diet attempts fail, there are countless treadmills collecting dust in homes and now more than ever we are stressed, sleeping less and lonely. As an employer, you have the power to remove barriers that employees may be facing. Try the following ideas in your workplace.
Encourage employees to take regular breaks and instead of sitting encourage time to be spent doing a healthy activity, offer time away from work to get a preventive care exam or screening
Ask employees what areas of their health they have the most questions about and tailor onsite wellness activities to focus on their knowledge deficits, add a library of health and wellness books
A culture of health can be created through access to healthy foods in the workplace, on-site volunteering activities, create walking clubs and routes for exercise, designate a stress relief room and support from supervisors and leadership to engage in health programs and activities
NDPERS and Sanford Health Plan have partnered to bring you the Governor’s Wellness Initiative.
Your health and wellness consists of six dimensions. Through this initiative, you will have opportunities to learn about and nurture each dimension, working toward a healthier, whole you.
