January marks the beginning of a new year, and it’s the perfect time to focus on how to eat well and recalibrate your system. One of Fitspot’s key pillars is Nutritional Wellness. We see food as a key driver in wellness. According to our FitPartner Zipongo, people make an average of 200 food decisions per day. That’s a large number! And it doesn’t factor in the hundreds of other decisions you make in your work and personal life.
We’ll make nutrition easier for you. Throughout the month, we’ll highlight tips and actionable ways to eat well, in addition to our usual workplace wellness insights for your company and property.
Let’s start with a little competition. Print out this list and encourage your workplace to keep track of these goals.
