How a workplace fitness plan could help your employees in mind, body and soul

Lockdown has been a challenging time for everyone, and for some, it will have taken its toll on both their physical and mental health. Now that restrictions are gradually easing, it’s time to put that right. Exercise is a great panacea for mind, body, and soul, providing an opportunity to practice a little self-care and improve your overall wellbeing as we start to get back to something resembling normality.

The sure-fire way to feel-good

A new fitness plan is not simply about shedding the extra pounds gained during the lockdown, it’s also about getting your mind to a healthier place. The endorphins released by the brain when we work out have an incredible, positive effect on mood, lifting your spirits and leaving you with that feel-good buzz.

There’s also a positive effect from setting targets and smashing them, giving yourself that confidence boost and sense of achievement. Few things are quite so satisfying as beating your own personal best and knowing that you’re upping your game when it comes to fitness.

An all-round healer

Our bodies function at their best when we are at a healthy weight and BMI. Carrying excess weight can cause all sorts of health conditions which can be life-limiting, so exercise, coupled with a healthier diet, can ward off such problems.

As well as the physical benefits, exercise also gives you an opportunity to just live ‘in the moment’, to be completely absorbed by a task which takes up your concentration, energy, and focus. It is, in effect, a form of mindfulness, which helps clear your head and leaves you feeling reinvigorated.
