Fit employees are likely to be happier
Employees who are physically fit and eat and exercise the recommended amounts are more likely to be in a better mood than their less healthy colleagues. This is the opinion of Chartered Psychologist and founder of WellbeingWizard.com Mark Millard, who explained people require a certain amount of quality calories to see them through the working day.
The expert was speaking in response to new findings published by healthcare charity Nuffield Health, which found 32 per cent of workers believe their managers begrudge them their dinner hour, while a small percentage even think their bosses discourage them from taking it.
Mr Millard stated people who are in a positive frame of mind "because they are eating a balanced diet and getting an appropriate amount of exercise a day, are much better equipped to deal with the demands of the workplace".
This relates to physical, mental and emotion perspectives, Mr Millard went on to point out.
