Stress, the environment and eating right are all factors when it comes to women leading a healthy lifestyle at the workplace. Here are some pointers on how organizations can insure a healthy lifestyle for women.
Women, whether they realize it or not, carry stress. Offices should have something in place to help women with stress management. However, it has to be practical.
Women are not in a position to go to the gym at lunch and workout for an hour and then shower and redo their hair. Instead, companies should offer something onsite, such as a 30 minute yoga session. It has to be something that is doable, simple, and effective.
Just by having a plant in the office or some natural light can help someone’s mood. Another idea is to have a relaxation room, where they can go sit in for 10 minutes and collect themselves.
By offering healthy vending machines or having a company bring in healthy food options facilitates taking care of employees and promoting a healthy lifestyle.
