Good notes on encouraging wellness for your employees. It is not enough to provide a good example or simply "talk the wellness talk". We must actively ensure our teammates are taking care of themselves.

It seems we create a quite insidious manifestation of confirmation bias via social networks, Facebook, in particular. As we have gained more information sources, we have also made it easier to choose the sources that do not make us feel uncomfortable (i.e. confirm our beliefs).

As with the article I shared earlier this week about "The Other Side", a solution is simply to adopt a skeptical mentality, especially when it comes to information. And maybe even take it one step further: fully immerse yourself in an opinion opposed to your own. Who knows...you may just discover that you were wrong. And there's nothing wrong with that.

I love the simplicity and raw decision-making embedded in this mentality. When you have slack time, however, the flip side of "HELL WHY NOT?" is equally important to consider (link at the end of the article).

No “yes.” Either “HELL YEAH!” or “no.”
