YES! (Philippines) - - Biz -

For many busi­ness own­ers, em­ploy­ees, and free­lancers cur­rently pop­u­lat­ing the Filipino work­force, their bod­ies are lit­er­ally the lifeblood of the econ­omy. Af­ter all, health dic­tates one’s tness to work. So why is it that so many Filipinos take their health for granted? Here are ways to stay phys­i­cally, men­tally and, emo­tion­ally healthy:

GET ENOUGH SLEEP

Lack of sleep can lead to sur­pris­ingly many dis­or­ders and types of sick­ness, mainly be­cause it weak­ens your im­mune sys­tem, mood, and brain func­tions.

WorkonQuan­tity. With so much to do yet so lit­tle time, get­ting a six- to eight-hour sleep be­comes im­pos­si­ble. Good thing, many work­places are be­gin­ning to un­der­stand the need of their em­ploy­ees to have enough rest and re­lax­ation. So don’t hes­i­tate to take power naps dur­ing the day and get an in­crease in pro­duc­tiv­ity. WorkonQual­ity. Im­prove sleep­ing qual­ity by

not think­ing about any­thing, es­pe­cially work. Gad­gets should not be within arm’s reach so one can fo­cus on get­ting a good night’s sleep.

EAT REG­U­LARLY

No mat­ter how busy the day may get, al­ways re­mem­ber to eat on time. Ir­reg­u­lar eat­ing is detri­men­tal to one’s health and it might be too late to pre­vent its pos­si­ble e ects. Swamped with meet­ings and things to do? Try set­ting an alarm to re­mind your­self that it’s time for a meal or a snack.

TAKE TIME OFF

Whether it’s a few min­utes a day – a one-hour lunch break, or just the min­utes spent trav­el­ing be­tween o ces and away from the o ce desk, th­ese mo­ments are op­por­tu­ni­ties to take a step back and leave work for a mo­ment. When there’s a chance to re­ally take time o , do it. Go on a va­ca­tion for a while, and spend it with loved ones. You’ll get back to work re­freshed, happy and more re­laxed than ever.

EX­ER­CISE DAILY

Many peo­ple cringe au­to­mat­i­cally at the word “ex­er­cise”. But it’s noth­ing to be scared of, and de nitely noth­ing to feel bad about. Work­out comes in many forms—take walks, go for a run ev­ery week or so, use the stairs in­stead of the el­e­va­tor, dance around your room, or at­tend a tness class.

COM­MU­NI­CATE AND CON­NECT

Lone­li­ness, feel­ings of re­jec­tion, or the act of “pulling away” from oth­ers hap­pen a lot more com­monly in the work­place. So make a con­scious e ort to get in touch with the peo­ple around you. It’s im­por­tant to talk to co-work­ers ev­ery so of­ten to rea rm con­nec­tions with them. In ad­di­tion to that, get con­nected. So­cial me­dia is a great way to talk to peo­ple you haven’t spo­ken to in a while. It’s very com­mon to hear com­plaints of stress, lack of sleep, ex­haus­tion or fa­tigue among peo­ple in the work­place. There are ways to avoid all that, which don’t have to be com­pli­cated, and de nitely don’t have to in­volve medicines or treat­ments. All it takes is a bit of ded­i­ca­tion to achieve healthy life­style.
