I’m Elizabeth Borelli, a certified Well Workplace and nutrition expert, award-winning author, speaker and founder of new wellness program Well Beyond.
I’m passionate about helping people learn how to prioritize basic habits for health and well-being. And it’s not as hard as it sounds! This isn’t just an issue of knowledge or willpower, it’s about changing your environment to achieve results, without resorting to short-term, externally mandated programs.
Based on the findings of leading Cornell researcher Dr. Brian Wansink and leading pioneers in habit-driven behavioral psychology including authors Charles Duhigg, Gretchen Rubins and Dr. Christine Carter, I’ve developed simple strategies designed to improve overall well-being by harnessing the power of habit.
My simple, easy to execute strategies promote basic habits for a healthier lifestyle. Participants reach their personal health goals, improve peer relationships and improve their productivity levels in the process.
I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with dozens of experts in crafting fun and effective wellness programs. Today’s Well Beyond participants gain the tools and resources to be able to incorporate longterm behavior changes that make them healthier, happier and more productive..
Yet I didn’t start out here. For over a year before I launched Well Beyond, I spoke at companies and organizations about the benefits of a healthier diet. I showed them what was in the “healthy” food they were eating, including more calories, additives and even toxins enough to make every audience cringe and swear off of Subway for… a week, a month if I was lucky. Knowledge alone won’t change habits. Even the best of intentions don’t change habits. It took months of research into what really makes changes stick to lead to the Well Beyond philosophy.
By learning what works, I’ve been able to create wellness programs that truly change lives long-term. And healthy employees are happier, more productive, and cost the company less money in insurance premiums that they otherwise would. We’ve been able to reverse the trend, and find our way to all of incredible benefits a healthy mind and body will bring!
