On a weekday, post working hours have a sports night with your employees at the designated time and venue. There is nothing like a good game to get their hearts pumping.

Call in the heart-health experts:

Educating your employees about the importance of heart health can change their perspective on how they view body care.

From their diet to coping mechanisms that aid in dealing with work-life stress, initiate your employees into a balanced way of being.

More often than not, it gets difficult to eat healthy while you work full-time. Every now and then, you end up grabbing a packet of chips and copious amounts of coffee. When you switch up the junk in your pantry kitchen with healthy stackable, you allow your employees to maintain their attempts at eating clean.

Initiate A ‘Healthy Heart’ Challenge At Work:

Channel the competitive side of your employees by creating a ‘healthy heart’’ challenge at work. Center the idea around little ways in which each one of your team members can usher towards a healthier heart. You could make it a companywide challenge by hosting it on a popular social media platform. This World Heart Day, stand up for good health.

Post-Work ‘Get On The Mat’ Sessions:

A healthy heart isn’t just about productivity boost. It also enhances the emotional and mental well-being of your employees. It is every leader’s pride to shoulder a team that works with zeal.
