Top 10 Tips for More Fun and Better Health
Professionals and small business/home
office workers have tremendous freedom to schedule their days, arrange the furniture,
choose the music and take care of themselves at work. Unfortunately, they also have
all the responsibilities, make all the decisions, and carry all the burdens. The
result is too often we forget to take care of ourselves. Use the advantages you
have! The following tips can make the day go easier and help you work smarter,
better and healthier.
At mid-morning, stand up, stretch and move
around, at least for a moment. Take several deep breaths, wave your hands above your
head, be silly, dance a jig, move your body!
- In the morning, limit caffeine to one cup. Or better
yet, switch to herbal teas! Start out calm and youre more likely to stay that
way through the day.
- Use up-beat music and humor (I love my daily Far Side
calendar!) to get your morning off to a great start.
- Make sure your first appointment of the day is a great one!
Meet a friend for breakfast, greet co-workers with a big smile, schedule a favorite
client first thing in the morning. Start the day with some fun!
Eat a light lunch of fruits, vegetables and carbohydrates. The traditional soup and salad is great, or a half-sandwich and an apple.
Your body needs sustenance, not a heavy load, so lighten up!
Take a few minutes during your lunch break to do something
totally different: read poetry, call an old friend, take a nap, go for a run. What
you do is not as important as getting your mind and body away from your work. Take a
During the afternoon, stand up and stretch at least once
every hour. Gently arch your back, touch your toes, or touch the sky. Turn
your head from side to side, and take some deep cleansing breaths. And while
youre at it, smile!
When stress and work pile up, take a mini-vacation.
Close the door (or go to the restroom, or a broom closet if you have to!) but get alone,
close your eyes, and imagine a tropical island, or your favorite picnic spot. Life
is good! Breath slowly, and relax.
Once a day, do something "extra" call an
old client to check in, thank a colleague for a referral, send a note to a friend.
Have fun with this. Make it a game to combine business with pleasure and broaden
your circle of contacts. (Hint: Send a quick
'thinking of you" email! People love
At the end of the day, clean off your desk, and straighten
up the office. The janitor will do the routine stuff, but take pleasure in closing down
for the day. Develop a routine that signals the end of the day, its time to quit,
time to go home.
