Promote wellness within your department? Yes you can!

Have you been searching for ways to promote wellness within your department but aren’t sure where to start? The Center for Healthy Living’s (CHL) team is nearby, ready and willing to assist you.

According to Gallup data from 2013 and 2014 surveys, full-time employees are averaging a 47-hour work week. This means we are spending nearly 30 percent of each week at work. With so much time being spent in the workplace, it is even more important to promote health and wellness in the office.

The center has a host of resources for employees to improve their health. However, making a trip across campus doesn’t work for everyone. Are you unable to get away from work to visit the center? Don’t worry, guest speakers can come directly to you – a department meeting, retreat or lunch is a perfect time for the CHL to provide a workshop or lunch and learn presentation at no cost.

Topics may include, but are not limited to: nutrition, weight control, co-worker relationships, stress relief and physical activity. Listed below are some presentations currently offered by our registered nurse health coaches, registered dietitian and employee assistance counselors:

  • Building a Better Lunch
  • Stress and Work/Life Balance, with a meditation exercise
  • Introduction to Services at the Center for Healthy Living
  • Women’s Wellness and Aging
  • Food Labels/Portion Distortion
  • Coping with Grief
  • Introduction to Health Coaching

Call the center today at 49-45239 and see how you can promote health and wellness within your department, on your schedule.

Also, don’t forget the CHL providers are available to serve as your primary care physician. The center also provides other services including lab work, sick visits and wellness checks. For more information on services offered at the CHL, please visit the center online. For tips to boost your wellness and other news, follow the CHL on Twitter.

The center is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Lab hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For assistance after hours or on weekends, please contact the Anthem nurse line at 888-279-5449 for assistance.
