It’s important for Nigerians to cultivate a healthy society and structure. However, it takes more than one person to build a village and if we are going to attain a health society, workplaces have to step in too.

Here are four ways that employers and business owners can ensure that they are guiding their staff toward a healthier lifestyle:

  • Planning activities: During the weekends, you can encourage a healthy lifestyle by planning fun physical and energy expelling activities that involve everyone and make it a regular effort so it becomes an enjoyable habit.

  • Create a challenge: Make fitness fun by coming up with a friendly and healthy challenge with a reward for the winner and participators that will encourage healthy living on a daily basis.

  • Switch up the break room: The break room is a sure way to get healthy living going. Simply stock the break room with healthy options so that people are forced to be healthy in their diet options.

  • Be observant: Any good employer should look around for the little things like bad chairs or too high tables that could affect the health of the staff and make corrections accordingly.
