McAfee VP Shares His Four Pledges for a Healthier Lifestyle

After experiencing a health scare that changed his life, VP of Technology Services, Paul, vowed to make incremental changes by incorporating four important health pledges into his daily routine.

Hear Paul’s life-changing story, how his diagnosis impacted his outlook on prioritizing his physical and mental health, and how he describes McAfee’s role in empowering him and others to follow their own wellness goals.

“To the leadership team and colleagues around me, thank you for giving me the time, space and flexibility to recover. The fact that we can 100% check out and focus on our wellbeing is paramount. At McAfee, that’s in our culture and our spirit.”

Here are Paul’s recommendations of four daily practices that every person can incorporate daily into their busy schedules.

Get up and Walk
Plan for virtual 1:1 walking meetings with your team, it allows you to stay active even on the busiest days.

Keep a cannister of ice, cold water at your desk so that you can stay hydrated throughout the workday.

Takes Breaks
Take mental breaks and intentionally unplug. Spend time away from your electronic devices by avoiding emails or going on chat.

Stand Up
It can be easy to sit at your desk all day. This doesn’t benefit your health. Instead, stand up and find ways to move.

At McAfee, we believe that your mental and physical wellbeing is a top priority. That’s why we encourage team members to take the time they need to reset, recharge, and care for their health. Between our paid holidays, unlimited vacation policy in the U.S., and leave policy, we enable our team to balance work with life’s responsibilities. We know that the key to living our best lives at and away from the office starts with focusing on wellbeing.
