In the hustle and bustle of work, it's easy to get lost in the relentless pursuit of productivity, often neglecting our own well-being in the process. It's vital to remember that our work cannot be accomplished if we are not physically and mentally well enough to tackle it.
Taking care of ourselves should never be an afterthought; it is a fundamental necessity. Embracing self-care as a powerful tool enables you to thrive in both work and life, ensuring that you are at your best.
Here are 3 small things to add to your day that can make a BIG impact on your work:
- Microbreaks: Take them! Throughout the day, get up, move, stretch, and most importantly walk. While it might seem to break your concentration, physical movement helps us better focus on the tasks at hand.
- Save your eyes: Follow the 20-20-20 rule. For every 20 minutes of computer work, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. This will help prevent eye fatigue and allow you to hunker down on the screen longer. Bonus tip: Wear blue-light blocker glasses.
- Natural light and fresh air: Being outside in the sun and breathing fresh air can help clear your mind. Plus, with a little vitamin D, your body recharges and feels refreshed. We were not meant to be isolated in the same four walls all day - get up and get out occasionally to break the monotony.
