Well, because your body goes with you and it functions better when treated well. To the extent that we damage our body and mind, our output is diminished (e.g.: The same person who smokes vs. doesn’t smoke, is able to accomplish less. The same person with high stress vs. healthy, low stress is able to accomplish less. The same person with a damaged back vs. a healthy back is able to accomplish less. …Not to mention that all of these situations create greater susceptibility for future physical hardships and diminishing physical and mental returns). Wherever our starting point may be in physical condition, as we strengthen our body and our mind, our output increases (along with many other benefits) as compared to allowing it to follow. Proper diet, exercise, rest, and emotional and mental health increases access to better circulation, better brain function, better disease and system breakdown resistance, improved reaction time, improved healing rate, and greater strength, speed, and flexibility. Upon this very basic premise, we know that a person that is maintaining a healthy lifestyle is less likely to injure themselves on or off the job. Wellness makes safety sense. At Battery Systems, they are integral. We value continuous improvement (and physical improvement is a part of that).
