Renowned research results show the importance of a healthy lifestyle and that it’s fundamental to a good performance at work. Beside exercise and nutrition, lifestyle also encompasses sleep, biorhythm, a balanced nervous system, social context and a meaningful existence. With an up-to-date knowledge of medical research, we provide tailor-made information, and if required, advice. The employee determines which adjustments are feasible and compatible with his/her situation in order to achieve a sustainable health gain. After the health check, the employee will know even better how to influence his/her own health and stimulate his/her resilience. The employee will gain increased control and ownership over his/her health.
Our physicians always include lifestyle advices in their consultations and health checks. Highly trained, technically schooled staff are often very developed mentally. They may know a lot, but this doesn’t mean they’re able to put all that into practice. After all, knowledge isn’t a skill. Someone’s motivation is also very relevant, just like external circumstances, such as the family situation. Additionally, it often requires a reason to change one’s lifestyle pattern.
With awareness and appropriate advice within the comfort zone, our doctors aim to instigate a lifestyle change. Recommending a sport outside someone’s comfort zone will only succeed and have effect for a few months. After a while, it will no longer be compatible and become a burden, and will not lead to a new acquired habit. However, with expertise and taking into account someone’s comfort zone and situation, anything is possible.
