Keeping up with the demands of the workplace is no easy feat. When you’re being pulled in different directions, we sometimes forget what it takes to put our best foot forward. Every now and then, we need to take a few steps back and focus on bettering our daily routines.
At Food Shelter, we believe you must think well and be well if you plan to work well.
Improve Your Mood: Surround yourself with things that make you happy. Listen to music, snack on your favorite healthy foods, and be social with the people around you.
Plan Ahead: Think about little things the night before. Doing so will cut the time you spend in the morning picking out your clothes for a client meeting or deciding what to pack for lunch. When you begin your work for the day, take a few minutes to plan out your day to stay organized.
Eat Healthy, Be Healthy: The foods you eat affect how you feel. Be mindful in selecting foods that benefit your mood, keep your energy high, and don’t leave you feeling sluggish.
Take Time to Recharge: Remember it’s okay to slow down every once and awhile. Recharging your batteries will reduce stress, and help you prepare for more demanding times on the job.
Move Your Body: Pay attention to your body. Staying active boosts energy, promotes better sleep habits, and can be a great stress reliever. It’s easy and it’s free. Take a walk, go for a run, or watch a workout video at home.
When you take care of yourself, you’ll be able to make the most of your office time and give your clients and your work the attention they deserve.
