We've uncovered a set of Pivotal Habits that, when practiced, unlock health, happiness and security for employees, as well as performance for companies.
We know that people really want to be three things—healthy, happy and successful—but they often do not behave in their best interest, despite good intentions. Positive habits are the key to unlocking these three things. They also happen to drive the culture and performance of all organizations.
The way we see it, wellness is comprised of a set of Pivotal Habits that (if practiced with high frequency):
- reliably and directly lead to positive health outcomes, including improved life quality, increased productivity and lowered costs.
- do not contribute to negative health outcomes, including reduced life quality, decreased productivity and escalated costs.
Why health, happiness + security habits?
The habits that prepare us to do our best work and live our best lives are those that enable us to become healthier, happier and more secure.
Habit Prescription Collections
The Pivotal Habits outlined here are actually habit collections, or a set of actions that are repeated over time with regularity (often daily).
For example, Exercise is not a single habit. It is actually a habit set, which includes cardio, strength training, agility, endurance, stretching, etc.
Our Dose Value provides the best research-based prescription for each habit set in order to achieve a given outcome. This prescription, or dose, describes the frequency, duration, intensity, form, mix of habit set elements and other relevant factors for the effective practice of each habit.
