Being Healthy Can Change Your Life

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Personal Wellbeing and Peak Human Performance.

A healthy eating plan can make a big difference in the way you look, the way you feel and your overall health. Eating a diet low in calories and fat but high in nutrients, carbohydrates and fibre can help to reduce your risk for ailments such as heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

It doesn’t have to be a drastic commitment to put together and stick to a healthy eating plan; it just takes a little imagination and some extra planning time.

If you find it hard to stick to a healthy diet on a daily basis, here are some great reasons not to give up

Gain More Energy: Eating a well-balanced, healthy diet on a consistent basis will provide you with plenty of energy to use when working, exercising and even daily recreational activities and enjoyable chores such as taking your dog for a walk.

Let Go of More Stress: Stress has become so common that most people accept it as part of a normal lifestyle. While it’s true that we can’t control all the stressful situations that come into our lives, we can certainly work toward controlling the ways we react to it, especially in how they affect our eating habits. 

Lose Weight Easier: Eating a healthy diet on a regular basis is the best way to lose extra weight and to keep it off without having to struggle or starve yourself or rob your body of vital nutrients.

Choosing a healthy life style can prove worthy in so many ways. Andy’s programs can help you make that choice.

A healthy body helps you to provide a high level of productivity in the workplace. If you want to increase your level of productivity in workplace, you have to make sure that your body has the necessary energy. Here are some tips in order for you to be sure that you can keep up with the stressful and tiring day your activities may give you:

Eat Healthy

You have to choose what you put inside your mouth. Make sure that what you eat provides all the necessary nutrients that will help you build your body’s strength. Though sweets may satiate your cravings, it is still best to eliminate or tone down your intake. Increase your vegetable and fruit diet, and have an adequate amount of protein, as these are your primary source of energy.

Water

Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day – definitely something you should never forget as lack of fluid intake will prevent your body from functioning at its best. In severe cases, lack of fluids can cause organ failure or may  lead to death.

Exercise

Spare at least 15-30 minutes a day and do some kind of exercise. It will give you an immediate energy boost and uplift your cognitive function as well.

If you eat a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis, it will help improve your general outlook on life and your productivity in workplace will improve.  These are all essential to guarantee quality and quantity of exceptional services.

One Simple Breathing Exercise to Fight Stress and Increase Productivity in the Workplace

Proper breathing can help increase your productivity in the workplace

Proper breathing can help you relieve stress and improve your productivity in the workplace.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing and Peak Human Performance.

You have deadlines closing in, an intense workload and a hectic schedule; your stress levels keep rising and your productivity in the workplace is falling as a consequence. If you are in a situation where job tasks and working environment are harming your mental well being, the reasonable thing to do is to take a moment to relax. When overly stressed, our breathing pattern changes from deep and slow breaths to quick and shallow ones. Deep breathing fully oxygenates the brain and body. It facilitates a relaxed state of mind, while short breaths make stress even worse. By following this simple exercise, which takes no more than five minutes of your time, you will be able to bring your breathing pattern back to normal, and calm yourself down.

  1. Sit on a chair with your back straight. Your lower back should not touch the chair. Avoid straining yourself; you need to be comfortable.
  2. Start inhaling fully and deeply to the count of 4
  3. Hold your breath for another count of 4
  4. Start exhaling very slowly until you reach a count of 8
  5. Wait for a count of 4 before you start inhaling again
  6. Repeat for 10 times

If a count of 4-4-8-4 is too hard for you, you can try with a count of 3-3-6-3 or 2-2-4-2. Once you manage to control your breathing, you will find that you can cope more easily with stress, which will certainly increase your productivity in the workplace.
