How Can You Keep Your Employees Healthy?

Every business owner has the responsibility to help keep their employees healthy and happy, but that can be easier said than done. In this article, we will review some of the most common workplace health issues and how you, as an employer, can make small changes around the office to support your employees’ health.

Radiation is all around us

In every business, it is important to keep your employees happy and healthy. The workplace is where many of us spend a large amount of time, which makes it all the more important that your workspace is clean, positive, and uplifting. If you are a business owner, keeping your employees healthy in every way possible can do wonders for your company’s overall success. Healthy, happy employees are more productive, and productivity always pays off. 

 

To help you create a better and healthier workplace for your employees, we’ve listed out some of the most common workplace maladies and what you can do to help your employees avoid them. 

Chronic stress is linked to a variety of major health concerns.

Stress

Did you know that chronic stress is linked to a variety of major health concerns (1)? Stress can pop up from a variety of causes, but the workplace is definitely a major contributor. With long hours, excessive work loads, and potentially low pay, it’s easy for employees to feel overworked and overstressed. Even in healthy individuals, job stress can increase oxidative stress in the body, which is a leading cause in a variety of illnesses and diseases. 

What You Can Do to Help

Want to help reduce stress in the workplace? Try these suggestions: 

  • Encourage open communication for employees to talk about stressful situations they are experiencing.
  • Provide a comfortable environment where employees can relax and have a mental break when needed. 
  • Encourage small, frequent breaks to prevent work overload and promote clear thinking. 
  • Be willing to work with employees’ schedules, particularly when it comes to family events and activities.

Another great way to help fight the effects of stress is to provide hydrogen water for your employees. Mental and physical stress increases your body’s oxidation process, resulting in more free radicals and greater oxidative stress, which can have a major impact on your employees’ overall health. Hydrogen has been proven to be a selective hydroxyl radical scavenger, meaning that it targets and destroys hydroxyl radicals (free radicals that often cause cell death and mutation) (2, 3). By drinking hydrogen-infused water, your employees can give their bodies the extra hydrogen needed to fight excess free radicals and stay healthy.

Job stress can cause oxidative stress, a leading cause of many illnesses.

EMFs

The workplace is a hotspot for electromagnetic fields (EMFs). With computers, Wi-Fi, laptops, cellphones, televisions monitors and a variety of other digital devices, it’s hard to avoid EMFs at work. For those who are sensitive to EMFs, they can experience a variety of symptoms that can interfere with their work performance and quality of life. Some of the most commonly reported symptoms include fatigue, lack of concentration, headaches and sleep disturbances (4). 

What You Can Do to Help

If you have employees who are sensitive to EMFs, one of the best ways that you can reduce symptoms and help your employees stay at the top of their game is to minimize EMF exposure. Even though you can’t remove all of your digital devices, you can use a Qi Device™ to block and reduce EMF exposure from 5G frequencies and beyond. Depending on the size of your office space, you could benefit from the Qi Home Cell™ or Qi Max™. Qi Devices™ are proven by double-blind studies to effectively reduce the effects of EMFs and create a safe EMF workplace (5).

Hydrogen water can increase antioxidants in the body and fight illness.

Contagious Viruses

When you’re at work, you’ve got a million things on your mind, and odds are germs isn’t one of them — until someone sneezes or coughs. If not disinfected regularly, the workplace can become one of the germiest places you go. From elevator buttons and door handles to your own work phone and keyboard, germs are everywhere. And when you’re sitting close to other people, it can be easy to transfer germs and viruses, the most common of which are colds, the stomach flu, and strep throat (6). 

What You Can Do to Help

If you want to help prevent your employees from catching and spreading sickness, try these suggestions: 

  • Regularly wipe down and disinfect both personal workspaces and gathering areas. 
  • Provide your employees with immune-boosting products, such as herbal tea, fresh fruit (especially citrus), and vegetables. 
  • Encourage your employees to stay home when they have symptoms. 

Want another excellent way to help fight off sickness in the office? Antioxidants have been shown to help reduce both the severity and duration of symptoms of many common illnesses (7). You can help your employees stay healthy by providing antioxidant-rich foods, such as dark chocolate, berries, and pecans. You can also provide your employees with hydrogen water, which has been shown to have powerful antioxidant activity due to its ability to target free radicals (8). 

Drink hydrogen water and reduce EMFs to fight workplace fatigue.

Fatigue

Working in an office often brings the dreaded afternoon lull. Not only can the workday be exhausting, but fatigue can come as a result of many other things happening at home. In fact, researchers found that the most common causes of fatigue include lack of sleep, irregular or late shift schedules, and work stress (9). When employees are excessively tired, it can have a huge impact on their performance. Fatigue can slow productivity, negatively impact decision-making skills, and lead to more accidents or injuries. 

What You Can Do to Help

Midday fatigue is hard to avoid, but there are a few things you can implement into your company’s practices to help your employees stay awake and energized all day: 

  • Encourage employees to drink enough water (maybe by providing water bottles or hosting a water-drinking competition). 
  • Create a fatigue-free work environment. This could include having bright lights or windows for natural light, cooler temperatures, and not too much office noise. 
  • Provide a variety of tasks for employees to avoid repetitious or monotonous work. 
  • Encourage employees to take breaks and go on walks to get some energy. 
  • Don’t make employees work long hours. Provide enough time for them to exercise and get enough sleep at home. 

Want an innovative way to help your employees fight off fatigue? Drinking enough water can help your employees fight off the afternoon lull (which often comes as a result of dehydration), or you can take things to the next level by providing hydrogen water. Hydrogen water not only keeps your employees hydrated but it can also give them a boost of energy. Studies show that consuming hydrogen water may help increase ATP production, which is where your body gets its energy (10). With enough water and more energy, your employees can continue to be productive all day long. 

Another common cause of fatigue is EMF radiation, especially for those who are sensitive to the effects of EMFs (11). While it may not be possible to completely eliminate EMFs in the workplace, you can help provide EMF protection and reduce the symptoms for anyone who is hypersensitive to EMFs. With the Qi Max™, you can protect your entire work building, creating a protective field that significantly reduces the effects of EMFs at work.

Obesity

A major health concern with office jobs today is weight gain and obesity. This is large part due to sporadic eating patterns and snacking throughout the day, especially on food items that aren’t nutritious. Such eating patterns can cause hormonal imbalances that lead to calorie or fat storage, which becomes worse when your job consists of sitting at a desk for most of the day (6). Obesity itself is not healthy, but it can also lead to your employees developing a variety of other health conditions, including high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep disorders, and mental illness (12).  

What You Can Do to Help

If you want to help keep your employees healthy and productive, here are some small company changes you can make to encourage healthy eating and living: 

  • Stock your company’s kitchen with healthy snacks and foods.
  • Encourage walk-and-talk meetings to get your employees moving throughout the day. 
  • Plan team activities during the work day to keep your employees’ minds and bodies stimulated. 

Another simple way to help prevent obesity and promote healthy weight among your employees is to offer hydrogen water. Hydrogen water has been shown to boost energy, increase workout endurance, reduce exercise fatigue, and fight inflammation. With these benefits, hydrogen water can help your employees have the energy and improved health they need to move around a little more and more easily maintain a healthy weight.

People who work 10 to 11 hours in the office have up to a 67% higher risk of developing heart disease.

Heart Disease

Did you know that people who work 10 to 11 hours in the office have up to a 67% higher risk of developing heart disease (13)? When employees are overworked, this leaves less time for exercise, general healthy living, and good-quality sleep, all while exposing employees to greater stress. All of these work together to attack an employee’s health, which can increase their risk of developing heart disease and other serious conditions. 

What You Can Do to Help

If you want to help keep your employees’ hearts healthy, try these suggestions: 

  • Provide a calming area where employees can destress during the day. 
  • Stock up on heart-healthy foods, like fresh fruits and vegetables. 
  • Encourage your employees to move around throughout the day. 
  • Don’t require your employees to work long hours. Encourage them to be productive in a shorter amount of time and have evenings to themselves. 

Another great way to help keep your employees healthy and help them lower their risks of developing heart disease is to provide them with hydrogen water. In studies performed on rats, hydrogen-infused water has been proven to be a beneficial factor in both the prevention and therapy of various diseases, including cardiovascular disease (10).

The Takeaway

Keeping your employees happy and healthy is vital to running a successful business. With a variety of office-related health concerns, one simple way to boost your employees’ health is to offer hydrogen water and use EMF-reducing Qi Devices™.
