Quick tips on being happier and healthier

Posted by Richard Forster on 15 May 2018

Why not discuss some of the following tips with your co-workers at a team meeting? You could then undertake some further research and devise some simple ways to make the workplace a happier and healthier work environment?

  1. Exercise regularly If time is an issue then search online for a short, dynamic (7 minute) workout program and give it a go. Exercise can make us feel good about ourselves. If you have health concerns, then talk to your general practitioner first.
  2. Sleep more It helps the body recover and repair itself from the rigours of the day. Every hour you sleep before midnight is a bonus and uninterrupted sleep is the key.
  3. Healthy eating Research and try a new health food then introduce it into your diet. If you like it then pass the tip on.
  4. Go outside more often and smell the roses Make a conscious effort to go outside for 20 minutes when the weather is fine. This can boost a positive mood and help improve memory. A short period spent outdoors can also boost vitamin D.
  5. Help others Dedicate some time to a worthy cause and helping others. This can enrich our lives and make us happy.
  6. Spend more time with family and friends Not staying in touch with family and friend is one of the top regrets when people reflect on their lives.
  7. Plan a trip Even if you do not end going, simply planning a holiday or a short break and researching what to see and do can improve our happiness.
  8. Meditate It is thought to be a of great assistance in improving attention span, clarity and focus as well as staying calm.
  9. Smile more often smiling can make us feel much better about things. It is doubly effective when it is backed up by group smiles and positive thoughts.
  10. Be thankful There is a lot going on in our everyday lives. Take the time to reflect and share some good things that happen each day with family and friends.

It may also be of benefit to think of ways in which to brighten up the work environment itself. Good luck!
