At Stadium Place we place a high importance on the wellness of our team members and
residents. We believe that physical and mental health are key to a happy work environment for our team members and a happy home for our residents.
It’s no surprise that weight loss is consistently the number one New Year’s resolution. It may surprise you, however, that a measly eight percent of people who make a resolution are actually successful (Forbes).
Weight loss is a daunting goal. Rather than overwhelming yourself with the pressure of such a drastic change, break your overall goal up into smaller achievements that will set you on a healthier path and ultimately inspire long term change. Rather than focusing solely on weight loss, focus instead on overall wellness.
Here are some healthy starter goals for 2016:
- Simplify your coffee (no sugar, syrups or artificial additions!)
- Cut out soda and fruit juice
- Reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates
- Incorporate more vegetables
Stadium Place features a spa like fitness center allowing residents convenient access to state of the art equipment. An easy way to get started is to hop on a treadmill and try walking on an incline…you can even enjoy your favorite TV show while you walk!
Our team members are the heart of Pillar Properties and each year we honor those who have achieved remarkable success. The E.P.I.C. Award, which stands for Excellence, Passion, Innovation and Commitment, is given annually to one person who is truly exceptional in all areas…which is extremely difficult with a team as talented as the one we have. Congratulations to Nicole Kellogg who was named the E.P.I.C. Award winner for 2015. As part of the award, Nicole receives a generous cash prize, a trip to the annual NAA Conference and the opportunity to choose an organization that we will all support as part of our Pillar Passions program in 2016.
