Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/23/2014 -- The importance of mental well-being has been highlighted in recent years, and now a representative of the Duke University School of Medicine has spoken out about how important it is to take care of our minds in addition to our bodies.
“Our mind is very closely tied into our body. Mental health affects every aspect of our physical health. Mental being should be the number one priority, because there’s no health without mental health,” advised Murali Doraiswamy of Duke University. He advised companies should be focusing more on the well-being of their employees as this can lead to improved performance and ultimately, a stronger business.
As mental well-being is tied so closely with physical well-being, it’s important that companies respect their employees needs for time outside of work to engage in physical activity or engage in social activities. This will not only help produce healthier, more engaged employees, but can reduce the money spent on insurance as well.
Employees who are healthy both mentally and physically are also less likely to become ill and come to work sick, or miss time to deal with illnesses.
Doraiswamy also pointed out that the ultimate goal of businesses is to provide happiness and satisfaction to their customers. Why not provide the same to their employees? If businesses truly want to succeed, they need to provide health and wellness benefits to all their employees to build a strong foundation to stand on.
