Work-life balance with wellness apps

Have you been haunted yet by the current hype of wellness apps out there?

We suggest that two developments in today’s business world justify the trend of such:

  1. Optimisation – we try to become our best selves in all areas in life, interconnectivity between how we perform at work and how balanced all other aspects – physical and mental health, relationships, workout and relaxation – are in our life

 

  1. Increasing demands due to digitalisation, complexity in work-environment with regard to global impact scale: we do not only take into considerations business from a local or regional approach anymore, but face competition of a worldwide market due to a global business network. These increasing demands go along with a need to take better care of ourselves – in order to be able to bring the best results in an office environment, we have to make sure to balance these demands out.

 

This applies specifically for high impact jobs. CEOs and executives alike carry high levels of responsibility – and may tend to forget to take responsibility of themselves.
