More than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments make up the foot and provide support, balance, and mobility with the help of bones and joints.

Cyndi Feliciano, MS, NBC-HWC
Employee Wellness Coordinator, Arlington County Government

Cyndi is the Wellness Coordinator for Arlington County and is responsible for planning, organizing, and leading health and wellness programs, delivered to all employee groups at various County facilities.

What attracted you to the wellness field? 
My wellness journey began as a corporate fitness instructor where I provided fitness breaks for corporate and government employees during their workday. It was fun for me to share my passion of group exercise but it was much more for the participants who were able to prioritize their physical and mental health during the workday.

What is your favorite part of about corporate/ employee wellness?
My favorite part about employee wellness is the feedback we get from our engaged employees who tell us how our programs are making a difference in their quality of life. It is important for employees to have a support team that is laser focused on daily well-being and healthy habits in the workplace to share information and provide a variety of experiences that make impact for the employees and allow them to thrive in their life roles.

What is your go to wellness tip for your corporate clients/employees? 
The best wellness tip for our employees is to prioritize self-care and work in small changes throughout the day to create healthy habits. This includes self-directed goals that include identifying at least one HealthSmart event or webinar of interest to their co-workers and to start conversations about events and programs.

What advice would you give a company to enhance their wellness culture? 
If an organization is seeking to enhance their wellness culture it is best to have wellness professionals collaborating with decision makers on a regular basis to establish long and short-term goals, plan annual events, and review feedback from managers and front-line staff on the effectiveness of their efforts.

What self-care activity do you find benefits you the most? 
I benefit the most from having a wellness vision that includes a daily checklist of self-care activities that I know will make me feel accomplished. This includes a morning meditation using the Calm App, skin-care routine to include SPF, filling up my water bottle with 2L of water for the day, practicing mindfulness with my dog outside, daily physical activity, plant-based meals, social interactions, gratitude practice and journaling, and at least 7 hours of sleep per night. I practice kindness when I don’t meet the mark and view each day as a unique challenge.
