Leadership Speakers Offer Three Rules for Corporate Wellness

Leadership speakers know how to successfully introduce corporate wellness.

Leadership speakers know how to successfully introduce corporate wellness into the workplace.

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

All successful leadership speakers know that corporate wellness is important for any business, but do they know professional speaker Andy Core’s three rules?

1. Make it a priority. It’s no use trying to promote corporate wellness in the workplace if it’s not at the top of your agenda. Outline the way healthy living and workplace wellness fit into your company, tell your managers and leaders, and implement these practices on a regular basis. You do the same thing with quarterly finance statements, so why should wellness be any less important?

2. Provide access to services. If you only talk the talk without walking the walk, leadership speaker Andy Core says you’re not going far enough. Make sure your employees know workplace matters will be okay if they take their vacation days instead of rolling them over to the next year, and offer facilities close to or on work premises so that they can stay relaxed year-round. Some of Andy’s favorites include gyms, cafeterias and daycares in the workplace, as well as having a psychologist on hand to help employees deal with mental health matters.

3. Be flexible. It may take a little while to see the desired effects of the changes, but once you make a plan, stick with it. However, recognize that people aren’t objects and sometimes their needs change. Be open to that. If this means altering schedules because employees function better, make the change. Just keep in mind the goal of your project and try to attain it with the most inclusivity as possible.

If you follow these three leadership speakers’ rules for corporate wellness, Andy says that you’ll be on your way to a happier and more relaxed workplace in no time.

A Business Keynote Speaker Stresses that Sleep is Just as Important for Well Being as Exercising

Good sleep habits are one of the most important ways to increase well being according to a business keynote speaker.

Good sleep habits are one of the most important ways to increase well being according to a business keynote speaker.

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

One thing a business keynote speaker often stresses in their talks is just how vital sleep is to attain and maintain wellness. It’s been well documented that a nutritious diet and active lifestyle are key to health. However, health and wellness expert Andy Core says that sleep is just as, if not more so, important than exercise and eating well.

1. It improves memory. Getting a full and good night’s sleep has been shown to improve memory skills by increasing information processing and retention. You can exercise and eat well all you want, but if you’re not giving your body a chance to recharge, all of your efforts might as well be for nothing.

2. Your heart will thank you. Not sleeping between 7-9 hours per night increases risk of heart disease, accumulation of cholesterol-related diseases and can increase blood pressure. Getting the right amount of sleep is one of the biggest ways you can reduce those risks.

3. Stress levels go down. When you’re on a regular and full sleep schedule, your stress is decreased without you even doing anything else about it. Picture yourself stuck in traffic: are you more likely to snap at other drivers if you’re lethargic, or do problems roll off your shoulders more easily? Getting to work in a calmer state of mind also increases productivity.

So, make a cup of tea, grab a pillow, and settle in for a good night’s sleep. It’s one of the most important and easiest ways to improve your overall wellbeing advises a business keynote speaker.

How to Create a Work-Life Balance From a Professional Speaker

 

Make fun a part of work to help create a balance between work and life.

A professional speaker says to make fun a part of work to help create a balance between work and life and relieve stress.

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

You’ve heard the saying, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Well, it’s true. A professional speaker states that people are more educated and hold more options than ever before. Motivational speaker Andy Core stresses just how important it is to create a relaxed work atmosphere to help keep employees balanced.

The last thing you want to do is cause a workplace so stressful, employees become burned out, and retention and profit margins drop. How do you avoid that? Andy recommends introducing practices like flexible work schedules, encouraging support networks with family and friends, and planning regular office activities.

A professional speaker says that this may seem counter-intuitive to businesses that run a hard bottom line, but if you change that mind-set to maximizing efficiency, profits will follow. The world may run on its own clock, but the people who work in it have needs, too. Accommodating them with schedules where they can focus on family, friends and downtime will make employees more likely to give increased effort in their jobs. Office perks like gym memberships, babysitting centers and offering healthy food at the cafeteria will inspire relaxation among employees and lead to increased productivity in the workplace.

A professional speaker reminds employers that there are more job options and education opportunities for employees now more than ever and the key to creating work life balance is to make work-life balance a part of the job instead of something that people have to reach for on their own.

Maintaining Employee Health is Maintaining Productivity in the Workplace

Replacing coffee with water and fruits goes a long way in maintaining productivity in the workplace. Sometimes, it takes more than a shower to refresh the body; “An apple a day” as they say.

A healthy employee, in mind and body, is able to maintain productivity in the workplace. Not everyone has the time to eat breakfast and those who do just get it on the go from outside sources. A deep-fried hash brown may taste good, but is full of oil and the same can be said about the breakfasts of most other fast-food chains. Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day as it dictates the rest of your day. Keep these things in mind:

Provide food in your workplace.

Not just “food,” it needs to be food that the body needs. Have some fruit such as oranges and bananas available to provide a better snack in the workplace. Vitamin C deficiency is becoming common in the modern world as more and more people develop unbalanced diets; an orange once in a while can prevent that. Bananas are satisfyingly filling and much healthier than sugar-filled candy and greasy burgers.

Always have fresh water available.

Water is essential to any living thing on Earth, us included. Soda and coffee cannot replace water. Thirst quenchers and energy drinks have a lot of salt in their mix so they are also not the best for employees who sit and walk around in an air-conditioned environment all day. Drink some water; it’s perfectly healthy.

Discourage the use of caffeine-based products.

Caffeine addiction is very subtle, but it is more common than most people would believe, especially in highly urbanized cities like New York and Los Angeles. Coffee is one of the top reasons for caffeine addiction as most working adults have a cup of Joe in the morning before work and maybe a few more during work. Soda is another top reason and is readily available.

Put the coffee maker in a different room and the vending machine away from the offices, they act as temptations. Do your employees a favor and place the water vendor a few feet closer; productivity in the workplace was never so fresh.

Give Us this Day – Our Daily Bread

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

Eating well throughout the day is a core necessity which will promote great performance in everything we do.  It is absolutely vital we eat “brain food” little and often and avoid long periods without food which will increase anxiety, fears and ultimately, lead to stress.

As tempting as it is to “grab a snack” make sure your snacks are wholesome and will not leave you feeling sleepy at your desk

As tempting as it is to “grab a snack” make sure
your snacks are wholesome and will not leave you
feeling sleepy at your desk

Prepare a snack-box to take to the office on a daily basis and get the kids involved too.  This is something the whole family can get involved in and not only will your diet be healthier, you will feel brighter and have more energy to handle the daily grind. Healthy snacks should be available to us each day, whether at our desks or on the go.

Much is expected of us in our daily lives and we all want to perform well and do the best we can.  We would never put the wrong gas in our vehicles; as we know it wouldn’t get us to where we need to be.  Why then, would we think putting poor food into our system is a good plan?  To find out more on healthy eating to improve performance, subscribe to Andy Core today.
