ROEVER ROBY PLACEMENT
In today's competitive world, it is important to put your best
foot forward. You are expected to stay on top of your game
and deliver outstanding results. But what this often leads to
is many of us turning into workaholics.
If you are constantly thinking about work, even during your
down time, chances are that you might be a workaholic.
Constantly pushing yourself over the edge where work is
concerned can take a toll on your mental and physical state.
When you are concentrating on your tasks at hand, your
health and state of mind tends to get shifted to the
backburner. This results in an inevitable burnout.
Here are 10 most effective ways that workaholics can negate the
effects of their crazy work schedules and enjoy an overall sense
REMEMBER TO SLEEP WELL
Your body renews itself when you are sleeping.
Sleep is one of the main aspects of a healthy
lifestyle. It has positive benefits on your mind,
body, weight and your general sense of well-
being. You might face tons of problems due to
lack of sleep such as concentration issues,
fatigue etc. To have the strength and power to
begin a new day, your body and mind need to
be well rested.
MEDITATE WHEN YOU GET TIME
De-stressing your mind is essential to give you
clarity of thought. Meditation is the best way to
refresh and relieve your mind of chronic stress.
Try and steal at least half an hour away for
meditation. With meditation, your breathing slows
down and oxygen is used more efficiently. This
improves the working of your immune system.
This will not only help you clear you mind and
ease you stress, but will also help you to boost
your productivity and creativity.
TAKE VITAMINS DAILY
It is a difficult proposition to give your body all
the vitamins and nutrients that it needs in
order to be healthy. By taking vitamins daily,
you are making sure that your body gets what
food doesn't provide it. Multivitamins are great
options to provide your body with the minerals
SPEND TIME TO MAKE YOURSELF HAPPY
Make sure you take some time out in your busy
day to do something that makes you happy.
After a hectic and stressful workday, it makes
sense to reboot, unwind and relax. It could be
something as simple as going for a spa
treatment, or reading a book.
If you are a workaholic, you are probably
spending a lot of time in the office sitting
down. But it is essential to get in as much
exercise as you can to keep your body fit.
Exercise tends to increase your chances of
living a healthier and more fulfilled life. It also
helps many of your body's systems function
better. Even half an hour of activity like
running or jogging can go a long way in
GET SOME FRESH AIR
Try to step out once in a while, even while you're
at work, and get some fresh air into your
system. Fresh air and sunlight is important for
your body as it is for your mind. Sunlight
provides your body with vitamin D that is great
for bone health. Breathing in fresh air will
calm your mind, improve your concentration
and make you a happier person.
TAKE A VACATION
Don't scrimp on the vacation time that you get.
Make sure you travel to new places, see new
sights, and have new experiences. It will
enrich you as a human being. Make sure you
leave your work back at the workplace and
delegate it to someone responsible so that you
don't have to keep checking your emails every
now and then.
MAKE HEALTHIER EATING CHOICES
Your diet plays an important role in giving you the energy
you need to get through a crazy day at the office. Keep a
bowl of apples or some nuts on your desk to promote
healthy snacking habits. Avoid eating snacks or meals
that are too oily or salty, as they tend to make you
lethargic and sleepy.
The best foods to have are a mix of protein and whole
grains. This fiber-protein combination leaves you feeling
fuller for longer, without making you feel sleepy.
It also helps to keep your blood sugar levels steady and
provides your brain and body with the key ingredients it
needs to perform in the manner it should. Try snacks like
dried fruits, yogurt with fresh fruit, whole grain chips
with hummus, and whole grain cereal.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
It is important to stay hydrated to keep your brain and
body active. Avoid keeping water at your desk. This will
ensure that you have to get up from your desk and get
water from the water fountain or the canteen. Your
metabolism slows down when you keep sitting too
Your body cools down and the important enzyme systems
start to significantly slow down. This makes it difficult
for your body to efficiently process blood glucose and
cholesterol. Water also tends to flush out whatever
toxins your body might have accumulated during the
day. So be sure to guzzle down at least 3 liters of water
Treat yourself to a piece of dark
chocolate every day
Everything in moderation is good for you, as is
chocolate. According to studies, dark
chocolate is naturally high in healthy
flavonoids which can help your heart. Dark
chocolate has also been known to reduce blood
pressure and keep stress levels down. One
piece of dark chocolate as dessert every day
after your dinner can be a healthy treat for
