Are You a Healthy Manager
Managers are juggling business deliverables as well as keeping employees happy and productive. How do you take care of yourself?
Since you have a lot to do, it’s important to also focus on your health. The more healthy you are the likelihood you will be more productive. You will also emulate to your employees that their health is important.
“How Your Health Affects Productivity” on ManagingPeopleAtWork.com provides concise and simple guidelines to help you concentrate on your health.
One simple principle is overlooked time and again during our busy days: Staying healthy has a positive effect not only on a manager’s work performance but also on the performance of his or her team. Incorporating an array of healthy work habits will improve your health and generate a more productive team.
All around us are reminders that we need to take care of ourselves, yet the demands of work block out those messages.
We feel pressed to perform and so take short cuts on our health.
We sit too much, eat too much and carry around a lot of negative thoughts.
What if you took just one suggestion from their list and focus on it for the next 30 days: take a break or two during the day, eat smart and drink often, exercise painlessly, practice ergonomics or think positively. What will you focus on for the next 30 days?
