Anyone who works anywhere in the world can call a juggler. Balancing personal and professional life can be the hardest part of the day, between project deadlines, friends, family, travel and many others. Yet, in spite of all the chaos, we forget to consider ourselves and our health.
Doing everything at the same time is difficult. You can not attend a family meeting and reach the deadline of your project at the same time; However you can work while maintaining your health at the same time. It is easier and less expensive to promote well-being at work than to buy a membership at a fitness center that you end up not using anymore.
Here are some ways to encourage wellness at your workplace:
Drink enough water.
Every doctor in the world will give you the following advice. Water is our most basic necessity and staying hydrated should be your top priority. However, this is not limited to the workplace alone. Wherever you are, drinking water at regular intervals throughout the day is essential for your body. Drinking adequate water offers benefits like:
- Reduced fatigue.
- Increased energy and metabolism.
- Weight loss.
- Perfect skin
- Boost of the immune system.
The advantages are infinite.
The promotion of well-being is only a bottle. Buy yourself a separate water bottle for your workplace, keep it filled and always on your desk, then you do not have to continually remember to drink water. It is advisable to consume between 103-105 ounces (3.1 liters) of water every day . Every drop goes a long way.
Restrict caffeine intake.
Most of those who work, study, or have some kind of routine are also addicted to caffeine. It's your partner when your work day increases or your study session lasts until 4 am. Caffeine is a stimulator of the nervous system because it creates alertness in your brain. That's the reason why swallowing a dose of espresso allows you to gain 3 to 4 hours more productivity.
Caffeine might not seem so dangerous at the moment, but it can cause serious damage to your nervous system in the long run. It causes anxiety, nervousness, tremor, rapid heartbeat and more.
Rather, wood of water or green tea. Both are miraculous. Green tea energizes your body, promotes weight loss, burns belly fat and poisons your body. But do not hang on to normal tea because it's as dangerous as caffeine. Instead, become addicted to the good stuff.
Tip: Anything that is consumed in excess will harm your body. Use your common sense.
Climb the stairs.
People do not like to use the stairs. They turn their faces sideways when they see the stairs leading to the fifth floor where their offices are located. People succumb to the need for luxury and take the elevator. But taking the stairs will not make you late. Well, maybe the first week, but then it gets easier and you will start to feel good and light.
Advocating for stairs is a best practice when it comes to promoting wellness at work. If you have an apartment, take these stairs too. You will thank yourself when you are in your fifties. So, save the extra 5 to 10 minutes – take the stairs and encourage others to do the same.
When we are stuck in our 9 to 5 jobs, people always lose track of their time, their food and their money. Sometimes the work is just nil – it sucks your money, your time and your health. Do not give in your desires and desires! Be aware of everything you do when you are at work because people tend to lose track of what they are doing while they are there.
A project must be completed before the deadline, so you have your dinner at home to order at home. But soon, projects overwhelm us and we forget if and what we eat.
Stop doing it now, for fear of regretting it later. Be aware of your time and what you do and eat. Form frequent but healthy eating habits. Snack on fruits like apples and bananas all day long. Drink juice from time to time. In this way, your stomach will not be completely empty and you will be able to extend your working day without giving in to your craving for a pizza or a last minute hamburger.
Say "no" to cigarettes.
For people holding 9 to 5 jobs, it's a very difficult habit to break. Perhaps your boss is still shouting at you; your colleague is a moron continually spreading rumors about you; and your superiors credit the merit of your work. These things combine to drive you crazy. The easiest way to let off steam and reduce frustration is to go smoke all that stuff.
Quitting smoking will be one of the most difficult things to do in their life. It is always hard to break the habits, but it is not impossible. Review this list of things to help you take the first step towards wellness.
Workplace pressures are the biggest triggers of smoking, but they can be resisted. Concentrate instead on work instead of pressure. You are stronger than you think.
Small changes in your work routine can make all the difference in promoting well-being at work. Share these tips with your colleagues too. We spend about 92 120 hours of our life in our workplaces. This is a total of 14% of our standby hours and 76 years is the average life expectancy.
So stop thinking and start doing today. It's never too late to start taking care of yourself.
