Wellness Corner: Proper Nutrition is KEY!

It’s time for new walking shoes for employees at Applied Innovation. We have wrapped up the Michigan Workplace Walking Challenge. We have walked five hundred miles, and we have walked five hundred more! Our total miles stepped as a company during these past six weeks was just over a trip from Washington D.C. to San Francisco, CA and back!!! We competed against over 100 companies throughout Michigan! This is our second year competing, and we can’t wait to see what next year’s challenge will bring.

The Wellness Committee at Applied Innovation spearheads a new wellbeing challenge each quarter. Our next challenge will be focused on nutrition. We have had a nutritionist speak to all of our employees on the basics of proper eating, and we are ready to implement what we have learned. Proper nutrition is critical in preventing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and high cholesterol, it can assist in managing chronic diseases and potentially lead to fewer prescriptions, it supports a healthy immune system, and overall keeps you energized and feeling your best. A great way to get started is to track what you are eating. Once you have some data on what your diet typically consists of, you can begin to make small changes over a period of time. Set realistic expectations for yourself to keep you from feeling discouraged.

We love sharing our health tips with you. Check back for more information!
