  • Yesterday I took the first step towards making my community a happier and healthier place. I submitted a proposal for starting a health and wellness group at work to my boss.

    The proposal was simple. I tried to answer all of the questions he would have before he could ask them: Why?, Who?, and most importantly (this is a business after all), How much?

    The answers were simple as well: To help our employees have a higher quality of life, which would in turn make them more productive at work, anyone who is interested - all shapes, sizes, and circumstances, and less than $250 for the entire year, which would mostly go towards training/food journals, short field trips, and educational books/DVDs.

    Helping a large group of people achieve a happier and healthier life for less than $250? $250 for a changed outlook on life? $250 for continued support through your journey towards happiness?

    Sounds like a deal to me. What would you pay for a guaranteed way to change your life for the better?
