The Benefits of Being Well in The Workplace

Wellbeing is more than being physically healthy, eating right and getting in 10,000 steps a day. It also is not just for yoga instructors or meditation practitioners. Wellbeing occurs when all the body processes are functioning at their greatest levels, and who does not want that? When this happens immune systems function better, disease risk goes down, and productivity goes up. Recovery time is lessened and a culture of “giving back” is created. Every aspect of life influence’s wellbeing. Wellbeing is not the absence of illness or disease. Rather, a mixture of mental, physical, emotional, and social factors, which are linked to life contentment and joy.
