Working in Self-Care at the office
You work hard, Love. And let's face it - being great at work and at home doesn't always leave time for self-care. Here are some tips to help you relax, release, and relate while grinding away at the office.
*"Greening" from ear-to-ear. A study by the Journal of Environmental Psychology shows indoor plants can help reduce fatigue. Bring some plants into your work space to improve your mood - and your day.
*Go outside and play! Take your lunch outside - change your scenery. Getting a good dose of Vitamin D can increase your serotonin level - a great energy and mood boost for your afternoon!
*E-scent-ial. Treat yourself to a diffuser that fits your office decor. Get your favorite essential oils and enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy.
*Write of passage. Jotting down your most pressing items is a good way to focus your day, and feel accomplished at the end of it.
Another tip is to create a "list-of-six"- to-do item(s) broken down into six or more line items. Your pressing task(s) may be so large you can't complete it in a day - or week. Breaking tasks into smaller, more manageable steps and checking each off gives you a visual road map to completion...and success.
