Work life can be strenuous on a modern day Filipina like me. But how do you make work life easier without compromising your health and budget? Here are some tips that I list down to make my work life easier.
1.Decluttering your work space
Decluttering your space can help improve efficiency and focus. A cluttered desk tends to distract us from our workload and the amount of paper works that we see, the same amount of stress can also build up. I personally preferred to work in a clean area as it makes finding supplies, documents fast and also I can prioritize tasks easier because I can move freely. It can also help in building creativity as a clean area is like a blank canvas that you can create new and exciting ideas with.
2. Maximize break periods
Not all of us has the luxury to take long periods of break. 30 mins to an 1 hour is all we need to revitalize our senses. Taking a short nap can increase our memory span. Taking a short walk after lunch or stretching can help in improving our blood circulation and freeing our minds from the daily task ahead. If you are also near a park it is best to go there because a change in environment can help in enhancing our attention span.
3. Eat Healthy
I used to work in an office based area that was surrounded by fast food chains. The key to not get tempted is to bring your own lunch to work and always have a fruit to snack on whenever hunger arises. I find that eating fruits and vegetables can increase the level of energy I give at work. If you like to eat carbs i suggest you go for the whole grain or brown rice given that it expands efficiency as it makes you full yet energetic at the same time. You can also go for small frequent meals compared to eating heavy meals which gives a lot more calories and it tends to make you feel sleepy.
4. Exercise and meditate
Exercising can be done in the form of taking the stairs over the elevator if you are only on the 5th floor area of your building. You can also do stretching before you lift a box of paper works or walk to the paper copier machine to promote blood circulation after a whole day of sitting at your desk. Meditation is also done whenever you are faced with a stressful meeting or an on the spot presentation. Smiling can also help and keeping a positive attitude towards the strenuous task ahead can reduce your amount of stress.
5. Taking Fern-C supplement
My mom was the one who introduced this supplement to me way back college up until now I have been using this. Apart from being affordable it also boost my immune system. So whenever i feel like getting a cold I usually double dose this. As a nurse i tend to get exposed to different illnesses and this really does help in improving my body resistance plus it is non acidic ideal for people who has a history of hyperacidity. Fern-C is Subok na that is why people stick to this brand because it does what it claims. From my experience Worklife ay Easy with FERN-C!
