Shaping the culture in your workplace can be both an individual and a management-level effort. When you model a healthy behavior, you set a good example for your staff and colleagues. When the entire office or team models healthy behavior, a culture of wellness is supported and can continue to grow in the workplace.
Here are easy and relatively inexpensive ideas to start your wellness journey. Ease into the process: Pick a category, try one suggestion, and build from there. You may even be inspired to create your own wellness traditions in the workplace. For help getting started, check out the By the Month Planning Calendar.
