Healthcare and Employee Benefits - April newsletter

Time to spring clean your Employee Benefits

The arrival of spring and warmer days makes the thought of regular exercise so much more appealing. Long walks, trips to the gym and those outdoor jobs we have all been putting off can help generate a “feel-good-factor”, which has a significant impact on our general wellbeing.

W Denis can help review employee benefits and include access to discounts off gym memberships, health screenings in addition to a flexible, healthcare and benefit package.

Regular exercise can have an immensely positive impact, both physically and mentally. It can help; relieve stress, decrease feelings of depression and anxiety, improve memory, help you sleep better, and boost health overall.

An American study found that running for 15 minutes a day or walking for an hour reduces the risk of major depression by 26%*

Exercise can boost wellbeing because:

  • It helps improve the mood and decreases feelings of depression, anxiety and stress.
  • It can increase brain sensitivity due to an increase in the hormones, serotonin and norepinephrine, which relieve feelings of depression.
  • It increases the production of endorphins, which are known to help produce positive feelings and reduce the perception of pain.

W Denis Employee Benefits can help provide guidance and solutions for Employee Benefits. To discuss this further, please contact  samantha.pollard@wdenis.co.uk
