Life is complicated at times and we are in danger of forgetting the simple things in it.  Yet, if we ask ten people what makes them happy, what comes up?

The Simple Things in life are often missed and we over-complicate our lives.  We forget about the lovely things that we have access to each day such as, the smell of freshly cut grass.  By forgetting the beautiful simplicity of life we are inviting stress, unhappiness and health problems.  Sometimes it is just a matter of letting stuff go and accepting what we cannot change.

Our whole lives will become cleaner and happier if we take a moment each day to look around us and appreciate what we do have.  Materialism will only destroy from within and the world is full of materialism.  Don’t allow yourself to get wrapped up in materialism and certainly don’t allow it to consume your whole life.

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

Moving ForwardDo you find yourself lacking the motivation to propel forward? Do you feel the pressure of monotonous, daily routines weighing down on you? While we live in a fast-paced society where efficiency and work performance are our priorities, we must make sure we have some times for ourselves to take a break, recharge, and fuel up.

Work is stressful. Life can be stressful with all our commitments and responsibilities; there is no doubt about it. However, that doesn’t mean we should neglect our happiness and emotional well-being. We are responsible for keeping a positive outlook, staying happy and content, which would in turn, gives us the energy and motivation to face our everyday challenges in work and life.

If you are busy, wake up 10 minutes earlier in the morning. Appreciate the weather, enjoy the morning calm, say thanks to what you have and think about what you would like to accomplish today.

Make sure to find time for yourself everyday – whether it’s going for a jog, indulging in a favorite snack or just sitting down reading a book. To find out more about maintaining a healthy balance and stress management, subscribe to Andy Core today.

Reducing Stress and Increasing Productivity in the Workplace

Reduce stress at the office.

A high amount of stress can paralyze productivity in the workplace.

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

Stress, stress and even more stress can severely decrease productivity in the workplace. ‘Acute stress,’ or panic, can make someone accident prone, unable to focus properly, unable to think with clarity and unable to perform to the fullest of their capabilities. The wellness of your employees should be your first and utmost concern, since without them your company is most likely to fail.

Workplace Wellness Programs

Productivity in the workplace can greatly benefit from workplace wellness programs. Such programs provide a chance for your employees to relax, associate with one another and establish trusting relationships that will certainly give a significant boost to the productivity of your business. Understanding what is causing stress for your employees is vital for turning a ‘sweatshop’ into the ‘perfect workplace.’

Leadership Training

Leadership speakers, like Andy Core, can help you fine-tune your leadership abilities and make you aware of what is stressing out your employees. Chronic acute stress can lead to long-term exhaustion, known in psychology as burnout, which can paralyze productivity completely. Not only will your business lose profit, your workplace will have become a harmful place for your employees. Going to work should be somewhat exciting for your employees, something they can enjoy and not a living nightmare. By taking good care of your employees, you ensure that their stress levels stay low, while their motivation and productivity in the workplace stays high.

Burnout and Productivity in the Workplace

Burnout in relation to productivity in the workplace

Burnout can negatively affect motivation and productivity in the workplace.

 

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

A heavy workload, coupled with an unmotivated and unhappy workforce is bound to cause burnout to employees and severely affect productivity in the workplace. Burnout refers to an extended feeling of exhaustion and a massive loss of motivational drive that impedes the productivity of an afflicted employee. If not addressed early, burnout might lead to depression, which consequently causes an employee to become unfit for work. Employees are the backbone of any business, therefore their needs, physical and mental condition must be taken into serious consideration. There are three forms of burnout according to current research:

A. “Frenetic:” Burnout that happens when people are encumbered by an immense amount of work. Frenetic burnout is correlated to how many hours a week employees have to work.

B. “Under-challenged:” Burnout that happens to people who are not motivated and unhappy in the workplace. It is related to dissatisfaction with job tasks.

C. “Worn-out:” Burnout that happens to people who have been working at the same position for a long time. It is related to a lack of acknowledgment and a loss of control over work.

Any of the three types of burnout can be devastating. Workplace wellness programs can help employees steer away from the ides of burnout. Benefits of workplace wellness programs include an increased amount of energy for employees, healthy social and team interaction, and a general sense of satisfaction with the working environment. Workplace wellness programs can ensure that productivity in the workplace remains high.

Lead A Much Healthier Life With Balance

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

Some people simply do not know how to balance their personal lives with their corporate lives. Of course it is important to work, however living and enjoying life is just AS important, if not more. After all, do you live to work or do you work to have a better life?

If you feel like you are a workaholic there is still time to change

It is common to know people that work over 12 hours a day. If you are one of them, ask yourself, am I happy this way? The answer is probably going to be no. Nobody enjoys working that hard and not being able to do what they really want to do. Enjoying life is a must; life is too short to waste it in the trash bin.

If you are working too much give yourself some time to relax. Take some days off, go travel and have some fun. It does not matter whether you go alone or with your loved ones, you DESERVE to live better. Crippling your own happiness for work is definitely not worth it. Work well and live well. You can certainly balance both things and live much better, it only depends on you. You need to have the attitude.
