Even if someone is motivated to start an exercise regimen, what happens if they simply can’t fit it into their schedule? The truth is, most people have to get a handle on their work before they can get a handle on their life.
When employees feel overwhelmed at work, it’s nearly impossible to meet lifestyle goals such as losing weight or lowering blood pressure. The more stressed they become, the greater number of unhealthy choices they are likely to make. In addition, as more employees feel overextended by their workload, rates of absenteeism, presenteeism, and burnout increase.
Their is a missing link in workplace wellness: it addresses everything around the workday, but not the workday itself.
