So, this is going to be one of the MOST difficult essays I’ve ever written. And I’ve taken the WR 121-123 series a couple of times. I’m doing some brainstorming and would like some general feed-back and input. This is for my program application to the Exercise and Science Movement Program at LCC. I may not get my application together in time, but this is the beginning of a very difficult process. So here is my very first page of brainstorming on the very first item on the list.
Why I want to be in the Exercise and Science Movement Program
My brainstorming on this became a bit more about my career goals.
To run a ‘consulting’ type business that promotes “Corporate Wellness”--that is the concept that an employee who exercises regularly, eats a balanced diet and has good stress management tools is beneficial to the company in the following ways:
Providing employees with the opportunity to exercise regularly, the education to eat a balanced diet, and good stress management benefits both the company and the employer in the following ways:
1) Employees who exercise regularly have a lower risk of on-the-job injuries such as sprains, strains and over-worked muscles.
2) People who combine a balanced diet with regular exercise are more productive, more creative and learn better.
3) Healthy communication and good stress management skills create open and positive work environments.
4) Health diet and regular exercise boosts people’s immune systems and that means fewer illnesses, fewer doctors visits and fewer sick-days.
When these factors are not only present in the work place, but also are encouraged and facilitated by employers, everyone wins. Health care costs are reduced, employees pay lower premiums, companies are more productive and employees not only feel appreciated but also are empowered--given the tools to lead healthier and thereby happier lives.
