PIONEERING HEALTHIER COMMUNITIES
Well Workplace Resource Toolkit
The staff at the La Crosse Area Family YMCA has compiled vast resources for you, your family and your co-workers to use to make your lives healthier and happier.
For easier use, the resources have divided into four categories. Feel free to browse the toolkits and use any of the resources that will benefit your health!
The Eat Well category includes a variety of topics on nutrition. Examples include: recipes, farmers' markets in the La Crosse area, calorie calculators, and much more! Posters are available to print off and post around your workplace.
The Move More category includes a variety of topics on physical activity. Examples include: bike routes, local walk/run events, local park information, and much more!
The Substance Free category includes a variety of topics on alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. Resources, sample policies, treatment facilities and literature on creating a substance free workplace are provided.
The Healthy Mind category includes a variety of topics on stress management, work-life balance, depression, employee assistance programs and flexible work schedules. Resources, sample policies, individual assessments, posters, and daily quotes for promoting healthy minds are provided.
