Taking care of your physical and mental health is incredibly important. You can’t do a great job at work if you’re constantly tired, sick, or just unhappy. By making a few simple lifestyle changes, everything around you can improve, and you’ll be ready to tackle that huge project at work without hesitation!
1. Drink water
Your body is sixty percent water, and it’s necessary for almost every single function in daily life. Drinking more water will relieve just about every minor ache, pain, and headache. It will give your skin a better appearance and flush out unwanted toxins from your body. Keep a bottle at your desk, in your purse, etc! Just having the bottle with you will encourage you to drink more!
2. Dry brush your body
This is something you might overlook. But when you’re in the shower, try dry brushing your skin in small circles with a natural bristled brush. Work towards your heart, it boosts your circulation and your energy, while making your skin look healthier and glowing!
3. Be active
If you’re not used to exercising much, try a gentle yoga session or walking around a park for an hour. Gradually build up to jogging, a more difficult yoga flow, or any other active hobby! One way to make it easier is to join a class or do it with a friend. It’s much easier to stay motivated when there are people around you who will keep you accountable.
4. Write down ten reasons you’re happy
You need to boost your mood and mental health, the best way to do that is by training your brain to embrace positivity. Start by listing the things that make you happy and that you’re grateful for. You can do it in the morning before work or when you get home in a slump!
5. Cut out excess sugar
Excess sugar is one of the biggest cases of weight gain, and it’s in practically everything. It’s actually pretty easy to spot-and-swap the big ones, water instead of soda, fruit or yogurt for dessert instead of ice cream, or swapping that sugary cereal for eggs in the morning!
6. Meditate for ten minutes
Meditation reduces stress, improves concentration, makes you happier, more aware, and usually more self-confident, and is also great for your immune system! Apps like Calm and Headspace make meditation so simple and fun, just try it for ten minutes each day and you’ll be amazed at how much better you feel overall!
