Well Aware

Work well. Live well.

Our Mission

To us, health is more than checkups and procedures. It’s a culture. Through Well Aware, everyone at your worksite will be motivated to live healthier, more vibrant and productive lives, while feeling valued and supported.

We believe that behaviors and attitudes directly affect wellbeing. Well Aware focuses on the areas that individuals can control: eating, moving, sleeping, following safety and injury prevention guidelines, building resilience and coping skills, fostering meaningful social networks and a sense of purpose, and navigating the healthcare system.

Experienced wellness representatives are the catalysts. They work with employees to create awareness. They promote long-term change through skill-building and learning. And they make it a socially rewarding and fun experience. Employees can engage online, onsite or by phone. Whatever works best for them.

I just wanted to say that I absolutely loved the MIIA Foundations of Meditation Series. Thank you so much for making that happen!

The workplace wellness programs not only promote healthy living but bring employees together.

Everything I have done and planned with MIIA for wellness for the past 11 years has been rewarding. Especially the chance to attend the Working on Wellness Convention at Gillette Stadium a few years ago to share our successes here! That was a highlight for me.

– Cindy, Town of Amesbury

That online wellness session was awesome. I have a family member suffering with dementia and onset Alzheimer’s, so it was very helpful.

– Christine M., Town of Chelmsford

I just did my first ZOOM MIIA wellness class, Managing Stress with Leslie Keagan. It was very well done, thank you so much for offering these during this stressful time. I really got a lot out of it and the instructor was excellent. Look forward to participating in future sessions.

Our gym is now complete with the addition of the weights yesterday! HUGE thank you to MIIA for the support and help! It is getting a lot of use! Now to find some Arnold Schwarzenegger motivational posters for those bare walls….
