Wellness is Much More Than the Absence of Sickness

Wellness for an employee means much more than the absence of sickness. Wellness is a way of living that emphasizes preventative health. Preventative health means eating healthy foods, making exercise an enjoyable part of life, controlling weight and making self care decision that will actively improve the quality life. By investing in wellness for your employees, you are reducing their risk for chronic disease and eliminating unnecessary trips to the doctor. The University of California At Berkeley Wellness letter has extensive research on the benefits of helping employees live a healthy and active life.//
