Less sick days, happier environment to work in, more promotions within the company, more excelling and bringing their best to the table each day, less mistakes, being ready to take on the next task, etc.
When a person in healthy they are happier. Think about people who are healthy. They carry confidence with them, they dress nicer, smile more, have a more positive attitude, can stay focused for longer periods of time, have less errors in their work, have happier home lives, bring a sense of life and so much more.
I think about my life before I became unhealthy and how much enjoyment I got out of life. Then I compare it to when I was pretty unhealthy. When I was overweight and unhealthy (not just because I was overweight, but because of the toxins I was allowing into my body) I was not a very happy person. I was searching for something to fill the void that was in myself. I was depressed and easily irritated (not to be confused with my Irish temper!). I was tired all the time and didn’t really want to do much. I made excuses for not getting things done and much to my disappointment used my kids as a reason that I couldn’t lose weight or get active. That should have been my first reason to get off my deriair/behind and get moving. I am glad that my kids were small at that time and don’t even remember me that way, because that isn’t who I want them to remember. People who live life, have energy and promote positivity attract those type of people and also are the role models that others want to be, including kids. Kids love being around the active adults that will go out and play with them, laugh with them and have fun acting like a kid, because let’s face it…we are all kids at heart! It’s in each and every one of us.
Being healthy and happy gives us so much more to be able to share with the world! Healthy=happiness, energy, satisfaction, confidence, empowerment and so much more!
Back to the workplace… If you have an employer that has a health incentive, take advantage of it! It is not just an advantage for them. It’s for you, too! And even if you don’t have an incentive program, do it for your own incentives! When your employer see’s the initiative that you are taking to get your health back and be a happier person think about the positive influence it is giving to them to want to do more for you because you are able to give more to them in return!!
Everyone starts somewhere, sometime, why not make your start now?!
