Companies have woken up to the fact that encouraging and helping employees lead healthier lives benefits everyone. We are regularly asked by Companies for Speakers that can deliver practical ideas on Health and Wellness that their employees can use everyday. The following are 6 of our best Health and Wellness Speakers sharing their valuable insights on how you can be healthier at work:
Jenny Evans, Speaker & Author on Stress & Resiliency: Eat regularly. A lot of people skip meals and snacks for many reasons like poor planning, forgetting to eat, perception of not enough time, etc. Not eating for extended periods leads to disengagement and poor health and wellbeing. Schedule a meal or small snack every 3-4 hours and stick to it. http://thesweeneyagency.com/speakers/Jenny-Evans
Gregory Florez, Speaker & Author on Health & Vitality. 7 out of ten of you reading this are dehydrated. Dehydration is tied to everything from headaches, to dry eyes, to loss of concentration, and can speed the development of many lifestyle related diseases. Perhaps the easiest “hack” for maintaining or losing weight is this: When you first feel hunger often times your body is needing fluid. Drink a liter of water first then wait ten minutes-the time that it takes for the signal from your brain to reach your stomach. You’ll be surprised how effective this can be. Keep water with you all day long, andalways in front of you-out of site is out of mind.http://thesweeneyagency.com/speakers/Gregory-Florez
Joe Piscatella, Bestselling Author on Optimal Cardiac Health. Get up and move around! Sitting for long periods of time is linked to higher levels of obesity, type-2 diabetes, and heart disease. By getting out of your chair and moving throughout the day, you not only reduce the risk of chronic disease, but it helps to sustain mental health in our multi-tasking, out-of-time and highly-stressed world.http://thesweeneyagency.com/speakers/Joe-Piscatella
Dr. Heidi Hanna, Keynote Speaker, Author, Performance & Wellness Coach. By far, the greatest thing you can do at work to improve your health is take breaks to move your body, take a few calming breaths and quiet your mind. This brain recharge strategy used for just a few minutes each hour will decrease stress hormones and circulate glucose and oxygen for a mood and performance boost. Add even more brainpower benefit by reflecting on something or someone you feel grateful for.http://thesweeneyagency.com/speakers/Dr.-Heidi-Hanna
Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow, Renowned Explorer and Bestselling Author of Blue Zones. Commute to work via bike or public transportation. Commuters get on average, 19 minutes of physical activity (walking)-which is associated with 11% lower rates of heart disease. Also make friends with two healthy co-workers. Health habits are contagious and work friends tend to be long term. Moreover, according to Gallup, a best friend at work is the biggest predictor of whether or not you like your job. http://thesweeneyagency.com/speakers/Dan-Buettner
Christine Cashen, Speaker & Author on Communications & Go on a “Secret Mission”. Pick up a clipboard or folder and walk around the office quickly as if you have somewhere to go. Sometimes a physical break can bring a much needed mental break. Mission Accomplished!http://thesweeneyagency.com/speakers/Christine-Cashen
