What if Your Job Encouraged a Healthy Lifestyle?

We all know how important it is to eat healthy, drink lots of water, and get plenty of exercise.  Way too often, work seems to get in the way of that.  Whether you’re inside all day or you work long hours, sometimes just the thought of going to the gym or going for a run is enough to make you exhausted.  But there are ways to fit in a healthy lifestyle, from bringing a healthy lunch to work to going for a bike ride with the kids. 

I always find it interesting when I hear about companies that help promote a healthy lifestyle, especially when they actually give you the time and the tools you need to do it.  And if they encourage you along the way, that’s even better.  So when I heard about Infinity DISH, I thought I’d share their story.  According to the company, they “strive to achieve an active workforce that won’t be confined to their desks at work!”  You may know them from the DISH packages you see advertised, but here’s something unique about their work environment.

They’ve started a wellness program and started focusing on the well-being of their employees.  They are currently partnering with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, where a team of experts will provide training to employees who would like to participate in the 5K event.  And they’ll be raising money for a great cause too!  Employees can also get discounted health club rates. 

Hopefully other companies will follow suit and help give everyone a way to find a healthy balance between work, health, and home.
