Keep your employees spring-ready

Easter is just around the corner and it's filled with joy, traditions and, of course, delicious food. But that doesn't mean we have to compromise on our health. On the contrary, with some simple tips and tricks, we can create an Easter that is both festive and healthier. Here are some tips on how to make this happen:

The first thing that comes to mind is the food being served, and those long Easter lunches can quickly become filled with too much deliciousness. So let's start by looking at what you can do to change a few things so that the lunch is still just as delicious but a little healthier.

Healthier alternatives for Easter lunch:

The Danish Heart Foundation has compiled a list of 5 tips on how to make Easter lunch healthier. They are as follows:

1. Replace the big plate with a smaller one.
2. Put non-alcoholic beer and tap water on the Easter table.
3. Replace saturated fat with unsaturated fat.
4. Eat quartered pieces of rye bread.
5. Get up from the Easter table and go on an Easter egg hunt.

This leads us to the next tip, which is to do some active Easter activities:

An Easter egg hunt that gets you outside and active can be a great idea. Of course, you can also just go for an Easter run or a bike ride. This will (hopefully) give you the opportunity to enjoy the sun and the lovely spring weather while getting some exercise. Consider organizing a competition with fun and physical challenges to get your heart rate up. This can also be done at work in the run-up to the Easter break as a great way to start the holiday season with some exercise at work.

Alternatives to chocolate:

Replace some of the Easter chocolate and candy with vegetables and fruit. This can be done by making a delicious platter with a variety of healthy alternatives to the candy. Besides, it's not dangerous to eat a bit of chocolate - it's all about quantity and context.

Happy Easter!
