Addressing Physical and Mental Stress in the Workplace
You and your team work hard. You sit or stand or run around all day and likely experience some level of stress, even if you love your job.
Whatever you do, doing the same thing over and over for days, weeks, months on end can harm your body and affect your health and well-being.
Improving physical and mental wellness in the workplace can increase employee productivity, morale, and loyalty, and can reduce sick days and demands on health benefit plans.
“Andrew ably argued for the value of incorporating simple yoga postures, readily modified for the office setting, into the workday to relieve physical and mental stress. … After an interesting talk on the subject, he led the audience through a 20-minute session right in our chairs. Smiling, relaxed faces told the story of the value of the exercises.”

How Balance At Work Can Help
Take care of yourself throughout the day
A perfect agenda item for an all-day meeting.
- Healthy Movement (e.g., Desk Stretches)
- Mindfulness & Meditation
- Stress Management Techniques
Typically 90 minutes long but can range from a 15-minute guided stretch or meditation session to a 2-hour workshop.
Embrace the power of knowledge
Understanding how stress and inactivity affect our health can be a powerful motivator. Presentations are typically 1 hour — perfect for a lunch-and-learn — but can be modified to suit your needs.
