I thought that was a great quote from Jack LaLanne, who died this week at 96. In an age where many of us are sedentary, watch a lot of TV, surf the net and are addicted to our smartphones, it’s a good reminder that there’s no substitute for physical activity and a good diet.
This goes for workplace heath and wellness, too. Healthy employees are happier, more productive, have better attendance records, and help lower medical insurance premiums.
Keeping them – and ourselves – healthy doesn’t really require any cutting-edge knowledge. The basics of diet and exercise are the gold standards, as LaLanne talked about for decades.
I’ll end with a couple more great LaLanne quotes:
“Do you know how many calories are in butter and cheese and ice cream? Would you get your dog up in the morning for a cup of coffee and a donut?”
“I have spoken to a whole group of millionaires, head executives at Microsoft. Boy did I chew those guys out.”
