Finding the Motivation to Stay Motivated

Posted by EHE Blogger

Motivation to be Motivated…why can’t I stick to my good intentions? My goals were intentionally not lofty.  I work with a trainer twice a week on strengthening and conditioning and I fit cardio in where I can on other days.  Seems achievable, right?   I like the idea of having a workout routine, but with a hectic schedule, it is the first thing that drops off of my calendar when a meeting/home repair service/doctor appointment pops up, which is regularly in my world.  So, I’m trying to do the best I can, and that’s just it, DO THE BEST YOU CAN.  You’ll surprise yourself.  Here are a couple of things I do to stay focused on a physical activity routine.

How To Make Lasting Change

Posted by EHE Blogger

1/17/17 9:00 AM

2017 is here and millions of Americans are reflecting on the personal changes that they want (or need) to make this year. Popular resolutions include vowing to lose weight, eat healthier, reduce stress, exercise more or quit smoking. There is just one problem: while all of this sounds good in January, many of us lose our resolve and our resolutions are long forgotten and abandoned by April. The simple truth is that New Year’s resolutions are easier to make than they are to keep because changing behaviors, particularly those that are long-standing habits, is easier said than done. Wanting to change is not enough. Success with a resolution demands more than wishful thinking; it requires patience, planning, and organization. The good news it is that it can be done!

Snow Removal Safety

Posted by EHE Blogger

From the novelty of the season’s first storm to the seemingly endless onslaught of recent weeks, snow has been a looming presence in the lives of many Americans this winter. Of course, snow does have its perks. It is enjoyable to look at, ski on top of, sled through, and roll into snowmen and snowwomen. What is much less enjoyable is the fact that snow needs to be removed – from roads, driveways, sidewalks, stairs, and walkways. And, while snow removal is almost always a nuisance, it can also be very dangerous if performed incorrectly or without proper precaution.

Health Benefits of Exercise Is a Fountain of Youth

Looking and feeling young and fit seems to be a top priority in the U.S., as Americans dole out over $12 billion for cosmetic surgeries in a year, and the average woman will spend $15,000 on make-up in her life time. Looking healthy and vital, however, is not something that we have to buy. Regular exercise, a healthy diet, and proper medical care are the best ways to slow the aging process.


Living well is its own proverbial fountain of youth.

Don't Take a Holiday from Your Health

The holidays are a time to enjoy ourselves and to take a mental health break. If we completely lose sight of our health goals, however, holiday rejoicing can quickly turn into regret after the New Year. Now, this doesn’t mean we have to resign ourselves to eating only Kale chips at the holiday parties – we just need to be mindful of eating and exercise.

Fitness Programs Are Critical to Employee Wellness

Posted by Admin

11/21/14 4:43 PM

Employee wellness programs are increasingly popular in corporate America. A National Business Group on Health survey shows that spending on employee wellness programming increased by 15 percent in 2013 from the previous year, and the number of companies offering incentives for participation in such programs "has increased from 57 percent in 2009 to 74 percent in 2014." These trends include growth in subsidized gym memberships and exercise programs. A focus on fitness makes sense for all involved. Companies reap tax benefits from fitness programs, and employees enjoy improved health outcomes by participating. A healthy workforce may also result in further savings for companies through lower healthcare costs.

David Fouse is not an extreme person. He is a father of five children, devoted husband, suburban homeowner, and busy professional. On the weekends, he tries to find time for exercise but more often runs around on errands for his kids. This ordinary guy had an epiphany of sorts a year ago, which lead him this week to the Himalayan mountains to take part in a 100-mile endurance race.
