The connection between mental and physical wellbeing is complex, but undeniable. Feeling better physically can boost mental wellbeing while good mental health makes it easier to maintain physical fitness.

The BenefitsPRO article outlines five tips for employers to help employees successfully manage mental health and reduce feelings of burnout through physical activity:

  1. Help employees define boundaries and timing for self-care, exercise, and nutrition.
  2. Cover all elements of physical fitness.
  3. Celebrate wellbeing wins.
  4. Unite employees in a common goal.
  5. Encourage employees to make stretching a part of their day.

Employers who wish to reduce burnout in their workforce need a multifaceted approach. An important first step, though, includes supporting employees’ physical fitness.
