How are you holding up with your New Year’s resolutions? After all, the most difficult part is keeping up with it, right? The first two weeks are easy – your motivation, will, and drive are through the roof. Weeks 3-4 and as we move into the beginning of February is where the real test begins. You begin to contemplate the worth and benefit behind the extra efforts. So, what can you do to make sure you keep up with your resolutions?
Thankfully, my colleagues (and now wellness friends) have similar resolutions. We organized and introduced a #WellnessWednesday movement because we wanted to find a way to keep up with our resolutions and focus on self care at work and realistically, it’s much easier to stick with a goal when you have others involved. Everyone plays a part in holding each other accountable. You’re more likely to successfully complete something when you know someone else will check on you.
Why is a wellness program important and beneficial for the workplace?
We are so thankful to be part of an organization that supports our wellness and self care efforts. There’s increased movement and physical activity around the office and our team is more conscious of wellness initiatives such as hydration, pedometer tracking, and even circuit workouts. We can’t wait to incorporate more wellness challenges and push our limits throughout 2018. It’s our commitment to keep those New Year’s resolutions top of mind all year long.
