Healthy Lifestyle

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being. Interestingly enough, health is not simply defined as just the absence of disease. The actual definition of healthy living is the steps, actions and strategies one puts in place to achieve optimum health. Healthy living is about taking responsibility and making smart health choices for today and for the future. Eating right, getting physically fit, emotional wellness, spiritual wellness and prevention are all apart of creating a healthy lifestyle. Since the entire YOU, meaning all aspects of one’s self, must work in harmony to achieve wellness, you need to put balanced energy into each aspect of yourself.

  • The Physical You requires good nutrition, appropriate weight, beneficial exercise, adequate rest and proper stress management.
  • The Emotional You needs self-supportive attitudes, positive thoughts and viewpoints and a positive self-image. You also need to give and receive forgiveness, love and compassion; you need to laugh and experience happiness; and you need joyful relationships with yourself and others.
  • The Spiritual You requires inner calmness, openness to your creativity and trust in your inner knowing. For some it requires having a relationship with a higher power.

A healthy lifestyle is a valuable resource for reducing the incidence and impact of health problems, for recovery, for coping with life stressors and for improving quality of life. There is a growing body of scientific evidence that shows our lifestyles play a huge part in how healthy we are. From what we eat and drink, to how much exercise we take and whether we smoke or take drugs, all will affect our health, not only in terms of life expectancy, but how long we can expect to live without experiencing chronic disease.

Many health problems can be prevented or at least their occurrence postponed by having a healthy lifestyle.

The healthy lifestyle of employees can have a positive impact at the work place. To improve the lifestyle of employees the following topics are available:

  • Health and nutrition
  • Blood pressure and you
  • Cholesterol management
  • Weight management

 

These topics are presented in a one-hour presentation to create awareness and to stipulate discussion and self-exploration on the topic. Full and half-day workshops are available on request to explore more in-depth interaction and learning.
