Employee wellness lecture ideas-help!
We are starting employee wellness at work and we would like to add wellness lectures. I have smoking cessation starting soon. We recently kicked it off with a healthy food demo, the ymca promoted, and we had fun fitness testing but to keep the momentum I'd like to hear what worked for you!
since most people spend a lot of time sitting, at their desk and/or in front of a computer, a session on stretching and seated exercises to offset lower back problems is usually well received.

You can give them suggestions about different things they can do when they are home or in their free time and it doesn't look like they are exercising (even though they are great activities). For example take the stairs instead of the elevator, when shoveling snow use a shovel and not a snow blower, when they cut the grass they should use a mower which they have to push manually instead of a self-propelled one, walk more instead of driving, etc.
I hope this helps!
