Acumen Learning Fitness Challenge
For a different topic today, let's talk about resolutions.
1. A firm decision to do or not to do something.
2. A formal expression of opinion or intention agreed on by a
legislative body, committee, or other formal meeting.
With this month being the first of the New Year, here at Acumen Learning we decided to change our lifestyles a bit. (With the help of a little incentive).
Being healthy and fit is important for the work place! Eating the right foods gives our minds and bodies energy and lifts our spirits, therefore creating a happier and more productive work environment. Being physically active can help reduce stress levels, and everyone knows that stressed coworkers can sometimes be contagious and make others around them stressed. Exercising regularly can also help us sleep better during the nights so that we can be more awake and proactive during the day. David Ballard, assistant executive director for marketing and business development at the APA stated, "Companies that provide a psychologically healthy workplace also have a better chance of overcoming obstacles such as a recession. With more satisfied and productive employees, these companies will have a “competitive advantage” in the market." Read more from the article here on Healthy Work Environments.
