Eight Tips from a Keynote Speaker to Maintain Health and Wellness

 

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

Ever look at a keynote speaker and wonder how they manage to stay so healthy? Expert speaker Andy Core shares eight tips that will help anyone to better reach their goals. And it’s not as hard as you might think. In other words, you don’t have to do extreme workouts every day or only eat lettuce. No, the habits Andy follows are just small changes that will tweak your day and make you your best self.

  1. Cook your own food and bring your lunch from home. Not only do you save a ton of money making your own meals, but also you get total control over the food you eat.
  2. Make time for exercise. Aim to get at least 30 minutes a day. It doesn’t have to be hard. It just has to be something. Take a walk. It will improve your mindset and your health. Need some motivation? Get a dog. Their energy will make you take them for a walk, or risk going insane.
  3. Sleep properly. Not only should you get the prescribed 7-9 hours of sleep a night, but do it at the same time each night and don’t hit the snooze button in the morning. Do this and your body will eventually feel like it has an internal alarm clock. You’ll love the way your mornings feel when this happens.
  4. Moderate your alcohol intake. You don’t have to give up alcohol altogether, but stay on the easy side of consumption. Too much, and it can interfere with your health and work performance. Plus, we all hate hangovers.
  5. Quit smoking. Lighting up is one of the worst things you can do to your body, as it costs you dearly in both your long- and short-term health. Stub out and watch how better you feel.
  6. Go outside. Soak in that vitamin D and feel great about your day. Spending time outdoors, even if it’s just a simple walk, will jumpstart positive brain activity and boost your happiness hormones. Simple scientific advice for a happy life.
  7. Do something every day that scares you. Okay, maybe not literally, but if you’re living a dull life that is stuck in a routine and refuses to take risks, you’re bored. And when you’re bored, you’re unmotivated and lacking energy. So do something different. Especially if it gets your adrenaline going.
  8. Enjoy Yourself. Yep. Take time every day to do something relaxing and enjoyable. The benefit your life will experience with this approach to life will significantly change your day. If everything is serious, you can hardly be happy. So find some way to bring in a bright spot to your day. Everyday.

Follow these eight small changes to improve your health and wellness and experience big results. Start slowly, build on the momentum of small successes, and be on your way to feeling good. Just remember that each habit you want to change must be consistently met with action. Big changes require small actions everyday.

The Favorite Health and Wellness Foods of a Professional Speaker

Broccoli is one of professional speakers' favorite health and wellness foods.

Broccoli is a professional speaker favorite for health and wellness.

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

A professional speaker has a list of their favorite foods when it comes to good health and wellness, and expert speaker Andy Core shares a few items off his lists that make him feel good at the office.

  1. Broccoli. This vegetable is loaded with iron and an excellent source of vegetable for your daily intake.
  2. Fish. While any type of fish is technically good for you, some, like salmon, are better for you than others because of increased protein and healthy oils.
  3. Multigrain bread. Making sure you don’t overload on carbs each day, multigrain bread is the best bread you can eat to ensure you’re getting your daily recommended source of grains and fiber.
  4. Bananas. As well as being a good source of potassium, a professional speaker favors this fruit because it can be eaten in a variety of ways: on its own, with peanut butter, as a bread, or pureed into a juice.
  5. Carrots. This orange vegetable, as well as being good for your eyes, is easy to prepare and store. Unlike bananas, carrots won’t bruise or get mushy in your briefcase.

Any professional speaker like Andy Core, all have lists of their favorite foods that make them feel like their health and wellness is up to par. What are yours?

A Professional Speaker Suggests Reading Books for Increased Wellness

Professional speakers know that reading books is key to maintaining wellness.

A professional speaker knows that reading books is a good method of maintaining wellness.

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

As a professional speaker, you’re usually up to your eyes in meetings, business reports and memos. Taking the time to read a book for pleasure may seem like folly, but expert speaker Andy Core says it’s one of his favorite ways to feel better and more well.

It may seem a little unbelievable at first, but reading carries many health benefits. Your brain needs its own form of relaxation, just like every other part of you, and reading a book for pleasure, giving your brain some down time from facts and figures, is a great way of doing it. Put the quarterly report aside for 15-60 minutes each day and watch how fast your concentration and mood improve.

Reading for pleasure also makes you feel more relaxed which, in turn, can get you more psyched up and motivated about tackling your work problems. If the office is feeling daunting, a professional speaker suggests reaching for a little Dante to put things in perspective. After all, how bad can your workplace problems be when the characters you’re reading about constantly experience much worse?

While a professional speaker often has their plate full to the max, they can usually be found with a tattered copy of their favorite novel in their briefcase. Take cues from them and it’ll only be a matter of days before you, too, notice the change as stress melts from your life.

Massage Health and Wellness into Workplaces Suggests a Professional Speaker

Professional speaker Andy Core states that getting regular massages can ease stress and improve overall health and wellness.

Professional speaker Andy Core states that getting regular massages can ease stress and improve overall health and wellness.

Professional speaker Andy Core says that if you’ve ever seen Charlie Chaplin’s movie Modern Times, you know just how much the workplace has changed since then. Gone are the days when people were expected to show up, clock in, and work like robots. Today, a good professional speaker like Andy Core knows that it’s vital to assimilate health and wellness as a way of life instead of merely being an after-hours option.

  • Stress can build up quickly in the workplace and every leadership speaker should aim to reduce stress as quickly as possible. Providing access to a registered massage therapist or giving employees vouchers to registered massage spas are an excellent way of physically and immediately lowering stress-related symptoms.
  • Massages are also an effective method of diminishing personal health care costs, as registered massage therapists are adept at spotting injuries and recommending treatment options.
  • Human touch is highly underrated as a way of eliminating anxiety, headaches and soft-tissue injuries.
  • While not intended to replace help from medical professionals, massages can act as a good supplement to other medical services.
  • Different types of massages have different effects. For example, a Swedish massage is used to relax and energize, while deep massages are used to help treat muscles damaged from injuries.

Many people love massages and making them part of the workplace is a fun and easy way to improve workplace health and wellness. Professional speaker Andy Core suggests that you make a few available each week and the lower stress levels will be notable.

How to Create a Work-Life Balance From a Professional Speaker

 

Make fun a part of work to help create a balance between work and life.

A professional speaker says to make fun a part of work to help create a balance between work and life and relieve stress.

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Well Being and Human Peak Performance

You’ve heard the saying, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.” Well, it’s true. A professional speaker states that people are more educated and hold more options than ever before. Motivational speaker Andy Core stresses just how important it is to create a relaxed work atmosphere to help keep employees balanced.

The last thing you want to do is cause a workplace so stressful, employees become burned out, and retention and profit margins drop. How do you avoid that? Andy recommends introducing practices like flexible work schedules, encouraging support networks with family and friends, and planning regular office activities.

A professional speaker says that this may seem counter-intuitive to businesses that run a hard bottom line, but if you change that mind-set to maximizing efficiency, profits will follow. The world may run on its own clock, but the people who work in it have needs, too. Accommodating them with schedules where they can focus on family, friends and downtime will make employees more likely to give increased effort in their jobs. Office perks like gym memberships, babysitting centers and offering healthy food at the cafeteria will inspire relaxation among employees and lead to increased productivity in the workplace.

A professional speaker reminds employers that there are more job options and education opportunities for employees now more than ever and the key to creating work life balance is to make work-life balance a part of the job instead of something that people have to reach for on their own.
