Fresh Local Produce: Key Ingredient to Happy and Healthy Employees

Happy and healthy employees are the key ingredient of any successful business. In a new healthy initiative, Joseph Hearn, President and CEO of Advanced Remarketing Services Inc., surprised us with our very own farm stand buffet today, and it’s just the inspiration we need to make sure we stay healthy this fall.

While working with our charity partners we get to see how much good they do. We want to lead by their example and make our company the best it can be.

Staying healthy this Fall is important, here are a few ways you can do it:

1) Visit your local farmers market and pick up veggies like we have in our office. This is the best way to give your immune system the boost it needs. Maintaining a healthy diet is beneficial to you, your local farmers and of course your business!

Our veggie buffet came from Wicked Greens in Middletown, RI.

This is Cindy Shea, and she picked all of the wonderful produce that is currently in our office. Cindy started farming this year and grows all organic produce. Last year she worked for a community farm in Providence but had never farmed before that!

2) Stay active. Go for a walk in the park, or go for a bike ride. Both are great ways to check out the beautiful foliage this Fall season. You could even volunteer at your local pet shelter and walk the dogs!

3) Participate in fall activities such as apple or pumpkin picking. If it makes you happy, it makes you healthy too.

Get creative. There are so many things you can do to help your body stay healthy this Fall. Mixing up your daily routine can also help keep your mind off of the cold weather that is approaching fast!
