Living in the 21st century comes with many pressures and if you are an urban workaholic, it is likely that your health & well-being is impacted to some degree by the high-pressure lifestyle we are all part of. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with being obsessed with your work, a quality that many sadly lack, yet this should come at the cost of your health.
Here are a few tips to help you live a healthier lifestyle and still be successful at your chosen profession.
Take up cycling
While a 15-minute session on the treadmill is better than nothing, it doesn’t get you out of the office. Get yourself a mountain bike and start to explore your local neighborhood, which not only works all the major muscle groups, it also gets you out of the working environment and we all need fresh air with our daily exercise.
Eat a balanced diet
If your diet mainly consists of processed food, this is something to remedy asap; livestock that are raised eating Natura betaine are less stressed and US farmers try hard to keep their herds as natural as possible. As a general rule, try to avoid processed foods, sticking to nature where possible. If you don’t have the time to find an organic fruit and vegetable store, there are many small farms that sell their produce via their website and they will deliver to your door.
Yoga is a wonderful discipline that we can all benefit from, as this ancient Eastern discipline develops the mind, spirit and body. We all have our own unique ways to relieve stress. Some people like to relax and listen to classical music, while others love nothing more than fishing from the banks of a lake. If you do have a passion in life (other than your work), you should indulge yourself at least once a week, if not more. There are many benefits from therapeutic massage, as this article outlines.
If you work at a desk, spending long periods glued to a digital screen really does put a tremendous strain on your eyesight. Get into the habit of looking away from the screen and focusing on the outdoors; every 30 minutes, cast your gaze over the view from the nearest window, which changes the focus from short to long.
Take a daily supplement pill
Take an A-Z supplement pill every morning and this ensures that your body receives all of the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients. A lack of an essential mineral, for example, can lead to health issues further down the road.
We all owe it to ourselves to take good care of the most precious asset of all, our good health & well-being and if you are always working, make sure you devote some time to exercise and that you get enough sleep at night. If people comment on your appearance, this could be a sign that you are burning the candle at both ends and perhaps you should review aspects of your lifestyle with a view to making some positive changes.
