A major culprit in our society’s growing weight issue is our sedentary workday. Even though the norm is to sit behind a desk motionless throughout much of the day, the Good Habits at Work program promotes more activity during the workday.
Whether it be a lunchtime walk, parking further from the door, walking to speak to a colleague as opposed to emailing, or taking the stairs rather than the elevator, each participant is strongly recommended to move more throughout the day.
In addition, participants are encouraged to support one other in their physical activity goals by engaging in these activities together, such as taking a walk over lunch or hitting the gym together after work.
The Good Habits at Work program encourages healthy eating and lifestyle behaviors in the workplace that will also spill over into your home life. Targeting actions in the workplace that facilitate weight gain, like overeating, access to vending machines and being sedentary, Good Habits at Work teaches employees how to lose weight in the workplace via weekly meetings, colleague support, meal plans, confidential weigh-ins and the incredibly effective Good Habits program.
