There’s light at the end of the tunnel with Wellworks. Today’s a new day, let’s do this!

Let’s face it – those New Year’s Resolutions you were so stoked about achieving have quietly snuck their way to your procrastination list, and will eventually disappear into the abyss of disappointment. What about that Wellness Program your boss so graciously blessed you with? Oh, that’s right… You’re feeling guilty that you haven’t been able to utilize that pedometer or smoking cessation program that you signed up for. Guess what? There’s hope.

Don’t Think About It, Just Do It

Here are a few simple ways you can jump back on that health train, and choo-choo your way to a better, healthier life while still using your Wellness Program.

Here are 4 easy ways to live a healthier life

  1. Sleep. One of the most desired and mostly effortless ways to stay healthy. Skipping out on sleep doesn’t only make you delusional and unproductive, it also causes health risks such as heart attack, high blood pressure and diabetes. Sleep is part of the IMP factor: IMPortant and IMPerative. Our Health Coaching Program may help you reach this goal of a good night’s sleep.

  2. wellness programWalk. One of the simplest ways to stay healthy, and we still find reasons not to do this. Using our Pedometer Program, you can virtually walk through Europe, Africa and Australia. With every step you take, our WellTrek program will track it and present to you as if you were walking through these countries. Walking helps reduce the risk of heart disease, improve blood pressure, maintain weight and enhance your mental well-being.

  3. Smile. Research states that having a positive attitude and seeing someone smile and interact with us, produces the same waves as receiving a $40,000 gift out of nowhere. Happiness and a positive attitude reduce stress, which helps our heart from getting heart disease and high blood pressure. If you find yourself depressed or viewing life pessimistically, speak with one of our Health Coaches and we will set up a plan to turn that frown upside down!

  4. Eat Stuff That Goes Bad. Sounds silly, right? But, really. The main ingredients of most processed foods (aka: 10-year shelf life foods) contain:

    1. Preservatives: Chemicals that keep food from going bad.

    2. Colorants: Chemicals that are used as food coloring.

    3. Flavor: Chemicals also named “artificial flavors.”

    4. Texturants: Chemicals that create a specific texture to make you think you’re eating the real thing.

Eating foods that are fresh, must be eaten within a few days of purchase, but guess what? There are no preservatives, colorants, artificial flavors or textures created by chemicals. Eating real food is guaranteed to transform your perspective on a healthy lifestyle. Our Health Coaches can assist in creating the best diet for you, considering your current health assessment.

Remember to keep your wellness program up to date by using our Health Risk Assessment and Know Your Number Assessment.
