Often during work, we all tend to forget ourselves. Indeed work is what gives us bread and butter to live a better life, hence work is always synonymous with financial independence and we all tend to achieve that forgetting our own health.
As we respect your love for work, let's explore how to show some love for oneself!
1. Exercise is the key!
We can clearly relate with you, going to the gym is not everyone's cup of tea, and there are 'n' number of reasons for the same. But how about making your very own workspace an exercise spot? Just before you are set to get started, give yourself 5 minutes to do some stretching or a minute for a plank! And you will notice how energetic your day will kick start.
Tip: Set aside 5 minutes for the arm and neck stretching before you sit on the chair to start your day at work!
2. Don't skip your earned meal!
Food is the essential need of a human body and that's what we all humans work for. Don't let the work pressure force you to skip your meal. A balanced diet is a key to a healthy body and we strongly recommend you eat short, frequent, and healthy meals to keep your body enriched and nutritious.
Tip: Try preparing a meal that excites you and tempts you!
3. Your brain needs some pampering!
Our brain is handling all the stress we have been dealing with and in the end, all solutions will be provided by this single component of our human body. So why not give this important organ a pampered behavior? All we need to understand is that no work stress is ever greater than your mental health and we need to calm down and each moment will be solved by moving one step at a time.
Tip: So close your eyes, take a deep breath, and remember "One Step At a Time".
4. Take a break!
Researches have proved that working continuously for hours results in declined productivity at work. As we understand you have lots of work to complete, however, we recommend taking that 5-minute break to take a sip of water or a cup of coffee/tea. ("We are sure you love that coffee machine at the office" 😉)
Tip: Take a cup of your favorite beverage and sneak a look out of the window, notice the beautiful sky or a tree, and give your eyes a break!
5. Talk with your colleagues!
This is not a hidden fact that "Human is a social animal", however is a proven psychological fact, that talking with your colleague is another way of making a productive and happy workplace!
A workplace that feels like home delivers excellent results than the workforce working at a place where anyone barely talks and discusses comfortably. Get to know your colleagues and build a happy workplace, because a Happy workplace is Happy You!
Tip: Let's ask a colleague today, hows everyone at his/her home in a sweet and caring tone!
6. Be hygienic!
A clean hygienic surrounding attracts more positive vibes and hence better health for you. Keeping surroundings clean and maintaining hygiene not only helps you but all those who are around you.
Tip: Try to arrange those scattered pieces and you will start noticing the difference!
7. Keep yourself hydrated!
Hydration is yet another key to good health. As much as we know water is what keeps us hydrated, we should also know that water is what cushions the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues and regulates the body temperature. Along with the number of benefits, water is indeed our favorite drink of course.
Tip: To detoxify your body, it's recommended to intake at least 11 cups of water daily.
8. Get some sun rays and fresh air!
With the increasing trends of working in shifts and increasing pollution, a human body barely gets enough exposure to the sun or even a chance to inhale fresh air. It helps in increasing blood circulation and increases memory power.
Tip: Try to step out during morning hours (before 11:00 am) and get the necessary sun exposure and make a schedule of talking a small walk in the greenery around.
9. Keep a check on smoke and alcohol schedules!
As per the stats from WHO, in India, more than 60 percent of working professionals are addicted to smoke and alcohol consumption! Little that we know, everything without a check will work as a poison for our body. So keep a check on yourself and understand that your life is very important for your loved ones and a good life can only be lived with a healthy lifestyle.
Tip: As we do understand, leaving a habit is tough but "One step at a time" is always the golden rule!
10. Do what you like to do!
Have you ever been involved in an activity, doing which time passes away too quickly, that is different from our professional life? Be it painting, writing, playing cricket, or just listening to the 90s playlist. Have you ever noticed that happiness this activity gives you? Experience this happiness frequently and engage yourself in things you love for a happy heart and a peaceful mind!
Tip: Scrolling Instagram can also be counted, though! 😄
