Achieve Wellness, Achieve Success
Maintaining wellness is a key to achieving success. Here are some tips to apply everyday to improve on physical, mental and emotional health.
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.
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.
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.
