Helping executives meet the challenge of achieving and maintaining improved health and wellness.
Success is a Double-Edged Sword
The life of an executive is often a constant battle to stay on top, professionally and personally. According to the Mayo Clinic, 90% of executives struggle with work-life balance and 73% live a sedentary lifestyle, resulting in 40% of CEOs being obese. The report provides insight into how the demands of being an executive typically result in less sleep, more work hours, and frequent travel. These factors increase the risk for sleep deprivation, heart disease, depression, stroke, and diabetes amongst executives.
Professional demands often make it difficult to find the time or energy to make good health choices, but there is hope. In fact, executives who focus on their wellness are better able to achieve higher productivity levels.
