Creative Acts of Health & Wellness: Stir It Up Happy at the Work Place

Be an angel, would ya’? Spread the word (not the icing!).
by Janice Taylor, Beliefnet Blogger
A Creative Act of Health and Wellness is something that we do that brings health and wellness into our lives and into the lives of others.
Once a week, I’ll toss out a couple of fun things that we can do to spread the healthy word (NOT the icing).
This week’s Creative Acts of Health and Wellness Menu centers around the office! Things we can do to add energy, color and fun to our work place.
STIR IT UP Happy in the Work Place
The Scoop …
Eating one ounce of protein rich almonds per day can help to maintain a healthy cholesterol level. Calorie count: 160 (approximately 23 almonds)
The Spread …
Buy a few ounces of almonds. Count out one-ounce portions (approx. 23). Place almonds in little plastic baggies along with “The Scoop” and keep handy for the 3 p.m. slump! You’ll be the most popular person in the office.

The Scoop …
Get yourself a whole watermelon. Leave it on the office kitchen counter for 5 days and watch the lycopene and beta-carotene levels rise by nearly 20%!
The Spread …
Bring in a whole watermelon to work on Monday. Place a sign next to it: This watermelon’s lycopene and beta-carotene levels increase 4% per day. To be cut and shared on Friday! Woo Hoo! Give everyone something to look forward to! Calorie count: 1/16 of a watermelon is approximately 90 calories.

The Scoop . . .
Inspiring words motivate. According to Psychological Science, simply reading an inspiring word can energize and motivate us to move forward.
The Spread . . .
Write up a weekly list of ‘good’ words and use them as often as you can in your inter-office memos. Watch the energy levels rise around you. You can share the words with others and make a game of it or just quietly add these positive words to your memos and e-mails and watch the positive energy spread!
Here are a few words to get you started!
Amazing, dream, imagine, curious, wonder, joy.
Calorie count: zero
Joy count: infinite
