Workplace wellness programs often allow employees to be actively involved physically. This helps them to get away from work, relax and improve their health.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being, and Peak Human Performance.

A number of businesses these days have wellness programs that encourage looking after yourself through exercise. It is good to get at least 30 minutes of exercise three times a week. Here are some advantages.

You Feel Good About Yourself

When you exercise, chemicals in your brain are released that make you feel good. You are more likely to feel good about the way you look and this will increase your self-esteem. Your weight is more controlled and you will be in better shape.

Working will be a Pleasure

Exercise boosts your high-density lipoprotein, which is HDL (good cholesterol). It decreases your chance of getting cardiovascular diseases, as your blood will be flowing more smoothly. It also reduces the chances of getting chronic diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. You will have more energy and work will not feel so stressful. Exercise can also mean fewer sick days.

Workplace wellness programs don’t have to be a daunting thing to do. You can choose an activity that is fun like tennis, swimming or even basketball, to have a good workout. Simply taking a walk with some workmates during a break can be invigorating. You can also meet some interesting people and improve the way you work as a team. Now you see why workplace wellness programs encourage exercise, as the benefits are immense.
