A building that inspires, motivates and keeps you sane would be a fantastic place to work. How about having thought provoking quotes, sayings, jokes and words in unusual or trigger spots around the work place to make you think and change behavior.

Singing isn't just noise pollution. It has many benefits. With just a few minutes a day of karaoke, the colleagues of the workplace can improve the airflow in their body which improves concentration and releases stress as well as them pitchful notes.

Wellness to me means maintaining awareness of my body, mind, and emotions throughout the day. In addition to my external activities, adding an inner feedback loop so I can respond when and how I need to--micro breaks, movement, socialize, snack, etc.

Wouldn’t it be nice to meet new people by choosing what you eat. To be able to socialise and, eat healthy and to be able to share interest during breakfast or lunch. Eat healthy meet healthy.

Experience Narnia from room to room? Have an unconscious journey of relaxation? What about... birds chirping in your ear on the way to the toilet? or the sound of waves before a board meeting?

Would allow workers to eat whenever they feel neccesery, and also gives them more of a choice on what to eat.

“Stress is the trash of modern life-we all generate it but if you don't dispose of it properly, it will pile up and overtake your life.”

Just as light brightens darkness, discovering self accomplishment can cancel out any disorder or discomfort. This is the key to creating balance and harmony in everything you do

Stay a long time in one position can result uncomfortable and more if you are in the bad posture. Therefore it is important to maintain the correct posture in order to prevent injury to the body.
