Ideas for promoting fitness and wellness

In a recent discussion, I heard that as part of promoting the fitness and wellness of his staff members, a Principal purchased Fitbits for all of his staff!  He advised it has had a positive impact over the past 2 months – they are having fun and already noticing changes in their habits.  While it is still too soon to tell, he thinks this initiative may also decrease absenteeism.  This idea has been so well received, it has influenced other Principals to consider getting Fitbits (or other similar health tracking tools) for their staff members!


Have you heard of any great initiatives lately that are impacting health and promoting wellness?

This is fantastic to hear Heather! Leadership support is integral in creating and sustaining a culture of wellness and this is an excellent example of a first step! And the fact that staff are having fun and enjoying it is representative in itself!

Helping people find intrinsic motivation through things like personal goals, inspirational quotes, and so on.

This is such a great idea. I am going to pose this idea in my next Wellness meeting. Thank you!
