“An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion…”
This is a great motto to consider when thinking about wellness vs sedentary work environments. At HealthSource we start every shift at work with our stretching/warm up routine. We implemented this about eight years ago and its something we have come to rely on to get us ready for the day. During the pre-shift warm-up we focus on a head/neck to ankle routine. We combine static and dynamic movements as far as stretches. We also bring in mild/moderate exercises; they range from jumping jacks and air squats all the way to burpees and squat jumps. Our huddles typically last the duration of an upbeat song as to not require too much time. If the huddles begin to get monotonous we spice it up by tossing a Frisbee around and if you drop it or make a bad throw you have to do five high knees or a burpee. Our main focus is to bring energy and fun to keeping our team members active/mobile and in motion. We feel setting the tone for the day and shift is vital hence why we do it right away.

What changes when a new baby or adopted child joins your family? It can seem like everything does.
Suddenly you have a new and utterly important job, mom or dad, and a whole new set of skills to learn. Your baby dares you to figure it out while stealing your sleep and coopting your free time. As mothers, we quickly sense the need for other young moms to commiserate with and for older "mentor moms" to tell us why it's going to be OK in the end.
