About the course

Most people have a pretty clear idea of what’s good for them and what’s not. We all want to eat healthily; get plenty of exercise and not give into bad habits. But it’s not always that easy, especially when at work. 

You can probably remember a time when you grabbed a chocolate bar from the vending machine, even though you knew an apple was better for you. Why do we so often make decisions that aren’t really the best choices for us?

When we’re busy at work, it can be easy to prioritise workload over wellbeing and you might feel like it’s difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle when on the job.

This course is here to help. We’ll focus on some of the daily choices you can make that will help your work life be happier, healthier and more productive. 

Key Insights

Desk dining - Don’t eat at your desk. If you cram in a lunch whilst e-mailing, picking up the phone and shuffling paper you will miss the fullness signals (so you overeat) and you’ll miss the pleasure signals (so likely just grab an unhealthy lunch) because your attention is somewhere else. 

Drink more water - Feeling tired at work? Irritable, headachy, can’t summon up any effort? You might just be a little bit dehydrated. 

Sugar Limit - It’s good to understand how much sugar is in the food we eat.

Who is it for?

The course is ideal for all employees regardless of position or company level.
