Why the C-suite needs health and wellness just as much as the intern

18 October 2019

If you are among one of the most powerful and influential people in your company, you might spend a lot of time worrying about your employee’s health and wellness.


As leaders of the company you run or work for, it’s easy to sacrifice your needs for the sake of your team, but your health is also a priority. One quick read of Steve Jobs last letter is a sobering reminder that you only have one body and one life and no amount of success can change that.


With limited hours in the day, staying mentally and physically healthy can be a challenge. Here are some ways you can start taking care of your health today.



Initiate a corporate wellness program

You have the power to create positive change within your organization, and implementing health policies across the board is a win-win. It’s beneficial for your employees, and it’s also great for you. Here’s the caveat. You can’t just implement the programs; you need to attend the programs. If you aren’t participating, how can you expect to see results? Even fifteen minutes of health coaching, exercise, or a healthy meal is better than nothing at all. Trust us when we say your future self will thank you. We have a variety of corporate wellness programs to suit your needs.



Hire a health coach

Historian Thomas Fuller once said, “Health is not valued until sickness comes.” Don’t wait till you are sick to be healthy. Hiring a health coach can be a great way to make sure you take the time to care for your health. At Integrity Healthcare we are experts in your health and help you implement strategies to make sure you are as healthy as possible. We not only know what problems to look for; we can also keep you on the right track. Plus, when appointments are scheduled, they are more likely actually to happen.


Be prepared with a Personal Health Portfolio


One of the things we offer at Integrity Healthcare is a Personal Health Portfolio. If you do get sick or have an illness, having one ready to go is always a good idea. A Personal Health Portfolio is an outline of your entire medical history and is more thorough than you will find at your doctor’s office. It is especially helpful if you have a long medical history or have visited multiple doctors over the years. It alleviates stress on friends and family. It saves time and is an excellent investment in your health.



Delegate and take care of your mental and physical health


Every great leader knows that delegating is the key to getting things done, but it’s also a way for you to take better care of yourself. It all starts with a great team. Surrounding yourself with a fabulous team guarantees that the work will get done, it will get done well, and you will have more time to focus on your mental and physical health. Delegation allows you to take that much-needed vacation or even a few hours here and there to rest and recharge.
