Setting Yourself Up For Success
One of the things I love about what I do is teaching Job Wellness tips to business owners and their employees. Whether I’m speaking to staff at assisted living homes or those who work in the office environment, I enjoy sharing tips we all need to remember throughout the day to help keep us positioned for a successful day at work.
In this article I will share several practical tips you can add to your day to help increase your productivity and creativity while reducing stress and fatigue. These tips will aid in your overall Job Wellness and help set you up for success.
Tips for Success:
Drink plenty of water throughout the day. You may not know, but air conditioning is one of the most common factors of our bodies being depleted of its water content. Keeping hydrated helps ward off headaches, fatigue, muscle weakness, improves cognitive performance and your energy level.
Get up and move around every hour. Movement is one of the best ways to increase brain function and blood flow. Did you know that after about one hour of sitting your body’s metabolism begins to slow down, effecting your blood pressure, blood sugar and heart, just to name a few.
Stretching your neck, wrist, shoulders, legs and low back several times a day helps to strengthen and lengthen muscles keeping them limber and aids in protecting you from injuries.
As you can see, just adding a few items to your workday schedule you will have the ability to increase your job performance, reduce stress and be ready for success.
