One of the outstanding ways that Room & Board takes care of staff members is by encouraging us to make wellness a priority in our lives. To me this goes above and beyond health benefits. Each of us is supported in our lives outside of work. Along side working for Room & Board, I went back to school and became a Certified Holistic Health Coach. To give back, I enjoy sharing my knowledge with my Room & Board team.
Last Sunday I did a slide presentation on a Fall Reset. We went over all of the small things we can do to make sure we are caring for ourselves and our overall well-being with the upcoming cold and flu and holiday season. Besides talking about adding in a good probiotic and a vitamin D supplement, exercise, getting good quality sleep, and eating healthy foods, we explored some of the less obvious. Making sure we are taking time for self-care like resting with a good book and a cup of green tea, walking in nature, relaxing in a hot bath with Epsom salts and essential oils and taking a nap when possible.
After the talk, so many people on my team shared with me the ways they were going to embrace these simple tips to create healthy habits in their lives.
