In today’s world, prioritising between health and work is a challenge. One usually overpowers the other, and in most cases it is work. Maintaining balance between the two is necessary for the smooth functioning of our body. Not all stress is harmful, however too much may be damaging for your physical and mental health. We are often ignorant about our health and fail to acknowledge its importance until the time we eventually fall sick due to over stressing. Regular exercise can benefit you in the long run. The best way to release stress is a good workout.
A few ways to balance work and health:
1. Correct eating habits –
One of the major factors contributing to your health is the food you consume. The interval at which one eats also erroneously affects the system. The food should be rich so that the body isn’t deprived of nutrition. One should always eat on time to remain healthy.
2. Sleeping Pattern –
Insufficient sleep and irregular sleeping pattern have been linked to health problems. Lack of sleep can raise blood pressure and cause hypertension in adults. A human being requires at least 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep daily. Studies show, sleep deprivation has resulted in depression for many. Always remember to work like a dog and sleep like a log!
3. Exercise –
Due the incessant contact between your eyes and the computer screen whilst working, your eyes stress-out. Take a break every 30 minutes. Look away from the screen to give your eyes some rest. Work out for at least 15-30 minutes every day for good health.
4. Drink a lot of water –
Water Can Help Control Calories. For years, dieters have been drinking lots of water as a weight loss strategy. Your body is composed of about 60% water. Drink 6-8 glasses of water minimum when you’re working in office. Body needs water to maintain the equilibrium.
Balance is Beautiful.
