Did You Know: Healthy Employees Are More Productive?


Think about how you feel when you are in the habit of eating well and exercising.  You feel more energetic, more creative.  You probably have more drive and focus to get things done.  And, you likely enjoy doing those things as well.  Now think instead about how you felt the last time you were sick.  You probably didn’t want to get out of bed, never mind do anything on your to-do list.  If you even went to work, you were probably distracted, unfocused, and miserable.
