A little over a month ago, Baudville made West Michigan's 101 Best and Brightest Companies in Wellness List – what an honor! Baudville' s HR manager and I travelled to the award ceremony to receive our award and gather some great tips and best wellness practices from other companies. I have always considered myself a relatively healthy person so I never expected to leave feeling incredibly inspired to make a change in my lifestyle.
There was a keynote speaker at the ceremony named Drew Canole, who is the creator of Fitlife TV. He was truly inspiring and really said some things that hit home. He asked everyone in the room to raise their hands if they were truly happy with their body and would change nothing about it. Not a single person raised their hand. He then asked how many people would feel comfortable enough to make a video documenting why you aren't happy with your body and what you are going to do to change it, and here is the real kicker – post the video on Facebook for the world to see. Again, everyone in the room was motionless and not a single hand was raised. The idea of doing something like that gave me anxiety and I couldn't believe this guy would propose such a thing!
