Corporate America Embraces Workplace Well-Being for the Holidays
"Due to heightened emotions and increased pressures, many resort to bad habits and irregular eating patterns during the holidays," notes Dean Witherspoon, HES CEO and founder. "But neglecting physical and emotional needs only intensifies stress and triggers more unhealthy behaviors."
In Health for the Holidays participants log daily behaviors, building a colorful, animated holiday scene with snow and surprises. The more activities, the richer the view. In addition, participants are surprised each week with daily Gift Box behaviors challenging them to do simple things that contribute to a brighter, more cheerful outlook.
"Holiday hoopla doesn't have to knock you off your stride. You can embrace the cheer of the season while maintaining your health," explains Witherspoon. "Countless people spend the year cultivating healthy habits, then lose momentum and become discouraged when they neglect exercise and the right food choices. Integrating sustainable behaviors into your routine amid the chaos can make the difference."
Grounded in the serious science of behavior change, Health for the Holidays encourages actions that boost energy and vitality while strengthening resilience and feelings of hope. This whimsical wellness challenge not only gives participants a motivating tool, but also reinforces confidence in their abilities to achieve goals at work and home. As they thrive through the holidays, participants generate momentum to continue practicing well-being habits into the next year and beyond.
