It’s 2020, and you know what that means! New decade, new era, new you. One of the many things coming in 2020 is the rise of proactive wellness as opposed to reactive wellness.
2020 is the year to take your health into your own hands.
Reactive wellness is the type of wellness you’re most likely used to practicing. You’re sick, so you go to the doctor. You have aches and pains, so you take some medicine, or maybe book a massage, etc. By definition, reactive wellness means the unpleasant event or symptom has to happen first for the solution to be enacted.
But what happens when we rearrange the order, and have our known wellness solutions come first? Magic happens, that’s what!
When we practice our solutions (massage, mindfulness, adequate sleep and nutrition, staying active, etc.) before a problem exists, then the likelihood of the problem (injury, sickness, burnout, etc.) occurring becomes exponentially lower. Therefore, we save ourselves time, money, stress, and pain.
This logic is even more groundbreaking when it comes to corporate wellness programs, and is the inspiration behind ours. Benjamin Franklin said it best: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” The National Council on Strength and Fitness found that corporate wellness programs return $6 for every $1 invested by lowering medical spending and absenteeism. Imagine the return on investment of a wellness program focused on lowering the need for medical spending in general, and focused on enjoyable ways of improving an employee’s quality of life and health!
