An Online Health and Wellness Newsletter Can Help Employees Take the First Step Toward Better Health

Helping employees adopt and maintain healthy behaviors is at the core of every wellness program. To have healthy behaviors employees must first start with education and awareness. A good online health and wellness newsletter can give employees the start they need.

For employers, the challenge is to find a wellness newsletter that has accurate, evidenced based help in wellness articles that are written by trusted authorities.

The World Wide Web makes all health and wellness information available to everyone. The information on the web comes from a wide array of sources that ranges from peer-reviewed science on one end to complete fabrications filled with lies and outright deceptions on the other end.

It’s wonderful to have such easy access to so much information but it’s difficult to identify information that is accurate and trusted from information that is not.

Employees who have access to an accurate health and wellness newsletter have a better chance of living healthy lifestyles that will prevent chronic diseases and improve quality of life. By itself, a wellness newsletter will have little effect on employee health.

But when it is combined with a comprehensive wellness program, a good online health and wellness newsletter can be a nice addition to any wellness program. Give employees accurate, helpful information at the right time and they will be more likely to improve health behaviors.

WellSteps clients use our wellness newsletter, but more importantly they also use our behavior change challenges and programs. WellSteps Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) is a good example of how we help people change.

A Good Newsletter is Hard to Create and Costly to Buy

Health and wellness newsletters can be used to share healthy living tips, news, and wellness ideas. For wellness programs that have the luxury of having both the staff and resources to create their own wellness newsletters they still face the challenge of finding good content.

There is a constant flow of press releases, news, and health and science discoveries which make it difficult to keep up.

This is complicated by the difficult task of finding content that is produced by trusted authorities. Some wellness programs can choose to work with a wellness newsletter vendor that can create and print custom newsletters but these can cost up to $12 per person per year.

And now that everybody has a mobile device printed materials are pretty much a thing of the past.

Today, a good online health and wellness newsletter should be delivered to any web enabled device, especially mobile devices. In the next decade just about everybody will be using their mobile devices for just about all communication needs.

What Should a Wellness Newsletter Include?

Wellness newsletters should be a good, reliable resource for employees. If you have a wellness program, the health and wellness newsletter should include information about current challenges and incentives. It can also be a great place to promote wellness programs that are running that month. It is important to share valuable information with employees that will build a relationship with them, knowing that their employee cares about their health. In addition to information about the wellness program, it is important to include reputable information about current health topics and wellness ideas.

For companies that do not have a current wellness program but want to start a wellness newsletter for their employees, it would be beneficial to include healthy living tips and wellness news. Employees may also enjoy learning about produce that is in season, new forms of exercise and mental health tips. Wondering how you can start a health newsletter? First, find reputable sources.
