I just returned home from an incredible trip to Dallas, where I presented “Wellbeing Refresh”, a corporate wellness session for Vista Equity Partners. I worked with the company to create a custom evening for their team of high performance leaders. The session was engaging, informative, resourceful, and fun. I taught their group of high level professionals how to up-level their game through fitness, nutrition, mindfulness, and meditation. I believe it is personal wellbeing that drives professional wellbeing. The healthier you are in your life, the better you are in your work.
At the end of the session, one of the partners turned to me and said, “You know I was skeptical at first. I didn’t think this would really have an impact. But I’m truly impressed. I now know small things I can do to manage the stress of my job and feel my best.”
Success! Yes this stuff WORKS. You can work smarter, not harder to achieve both personal and professional goals. I was made to help others beat stress, find balance, and reach their full potential. It gives me great joy to help people enhance their success through health.
Putting in too much time in the chair is dangerous, yet so many of us are pulling crazy hours at work and our health is paying for it.
Spending too much time sitting has been linked to a higher risk of heart attack, stroke, metabolic syndrome and earlier death, and unfortunately even the most dedicated exercise regimens won’t undo all the damage. Not to mention the rising increase of desk job related injuries like: carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, frozen shoulders, wrist strain, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, hip pain, and lower back pain.
I believe we are built to move. It’s stress and NOT moving that is the hardest thing on our bodies and health long term.
