In today’s busy, get-it-done-yesterday world, it can be difficult to find time for the most important person: yourself. That’s why we’re taking some time off in June to celebrate Professional Wellness Month! We could all use a reminder now and then that looking and feeling fantastic—yes, even while at work—are key to our overall health. If you count yourself among the 40 percent of Americans who consider their job to be very stressful,1 Professional Wellness Month is the perfect opportunity to get back into the habit.
To better enjoy the 9-to-5 grind, consider these useful tips.
There are also small ways you can get in a bit of exercise even as you’re sitting. Try doing butt crunches while in front of the computer or bringing small weights into the office and pumping a bit of iron on your lunch break. Who knows? You may even start a trend.
Professional Wellness Month is the perfect opportunity to take a step back and figure out what you can do to improve your well-being. If you’ve been meaning to take care of yourself a bit better, now’s your chance!
