Most professionals today, right from people working for the IT sector to the people who work for the management sector slave day in and day out to complete projects and meet the goals they have set for the day. Surmounting the endless pile of work is bound to take a toll on your well being. Health, it is said, is the greatest treasure one can possess as you can earn a lot of money while you’re well and kicking but once you don’t feel okay, all the money in the world will not mean anything to you.
Workplace wellbeing isn’t all about hitting the gym once in a while, your mental well being is also considered. Many people these days fail to achieve a balance between personal and professional life. Taking work calls at the dinner table, working well into the night, stressing about not meeting deadlines are all signs that you aren’t treating yourself right.
Besides, you can only ever progress in your career if you are healthy and efficient. If you are able to push yourself and overcome obstacles every day, you walk into your workplace.
Some steps to follow
Water is the best drink to have, no kidding here. There is little else that could replace the need for water. It helps in energizing the body and wake your mind up. Other than that, it helps in controlling your appetite, flush out toxins and maintaining the health of your skin. You’ll notice the obvious changes once you start drinking plenty of water (5-6 glasses of water every day).
Decrease the amount of caffeine entering your body
We all are guilty of doing it, reaching for the hot cuppa as soon as you start feeling a little sleepy and why not? Coffee wakes you up and helps you get a lot of work done. The thing is, while it keeps you up, you’re also going to be losing sleep when you decide your work is done therefore you clock in less amount of sleep as you would be up until the coffee’s effect wears out.
Sitting in the same position for a long time, slouching while typing away at your computer is one of those things you cannot avoid while you are at your workplace. This takes a toll on your spine and lower back which leads to problems later on. Simple adjustments such as keep your monitor to be at the same level as your eye and getting up from your seat to stretch and get some air could help you a lot.
Washing your hands before and after you eat food, using sanitizers, kerchiefs are good practices.
