Top 10 tips to help improve your health and wellbeing - National Workplace Well-being Day
Happy National Workplace Wellbeing Day😊 I hope you are all having a nice day so far.
Today I want to share my Top 10 tips to help improve your health and wellbeing. Take some time over the weekend to start implementing some of these tips into your daily routine.
- Start your day with a glass of water.
Your body goes quite a few hours without hydration as you sleep. Drinking a full glass of water in the morning can aid digestion, flush out toxins,
enhance skin health and give you an energy boost.
- Begin with something positive
Wake up and do something that inspires you like journaling, walking in nature, or other hobbies. Whether it’s productive or relaxing,
beginning your morning on the right foot can cultivate a positive mindset and set the tone for the entire day.
- Get plenty of sleep.
Sleep is just as important as eating healthy and exercising. From improving your productivity and concentration to helping support your overall health,
getting the recommended hours of sleep per night can have a major impact on your wellbeing.
- Get some fresh air.
Whether you get outside for some exercise or to read a book in the sunshine, you should take at least 30 minutes a day to get some vitamin D.
Use your morning break or part of your lunch break to move from your desk and enjoy the outdoors.
- Get moving throughout the day.
Try the stairs instead of the elevator, take short walks around your office or ride a bike instead of driving.
Vigorous exercise is essential but moving throughout the day will also keep you energized, as well as benefit your mind and body.
- Give your eyes a rest.
Eyes become easily strained when you’re constantly focused on your computer screen. Reduce the risk of tired eyes by looking away from your computer,
for at least 20 seconds in 20-minute intervals.
- Eat real food.
Real food is whole, single-ingredient foods that are unprocessed and free of additives. Incorporating these foods into your day can help improve your health,
manage your weight and give you energy..
- Get some alone time.
Spending time alone can be extremely beneficial for your mental health. Get to know yourself, figure out what you want and start living your most purposeful life.
- Spend time with your friends and family.
Spending time with your friends and family may not seem like a top wellness tip but it is vital. Humans are social beings and rely on other humans to maintain their mental,
Emotional, and physical help. Setting time aside to spend with your loved ones can help relieve stress, increase self-esteem, and lead you to make more positive choices..
- Limit blue light before bed.
The blue light emitted by your tech devices may be the cause of those restless nights. Put your phone or laptop away at least an hour before bed to set yourself up for a good night of sleep.
Finally, I believe that a healthy mindset is always enabled by practicing gratitude for what we have. What you or I may consider basic or take for granted , could be something huge for another individual.
I hope you all enjoy the weekend ahead and can implement even one change in your routine to assist your wellbeing journey.
