Schedule time to be active. Make an appointment with yourself to take a brisk 10-minute walk, visit the gym, or even do some quick sit-ups. The idea is to treat it like you would any other important appointment. Pencil it into your schedule three or four days each week and you’re set! You will immediately notice a higher energy level, a sharper mind and a more positive outlook. Take a break to nourish your body. Try this: When it’s time for lunch, put your work aside and go have lunch. For some of us, this is easier said than done. But allowing yourself to stop for lunch will actually make the rest of your day more productive. It gives you time to reset and make the transition from morning to afternoon. The mind and body need this break and you will feel the returns on this investment immediately. Find some balance every day. Your time is valuable and it’s important to remember that you have the power to choose how it is spent. Overbooking yourself will put you on a definite road to ruin. Leave yourself some downtime each day to engage in an activity you enjoy without thinking about work. Each day should have a clear beginning and end for both work and personal time. Define what those times are and stay true to them.

Although these simple steps appear to focus on your physical wellness, you’ll find that as you incorporate these healthier and more productive habits into your day, your mental and emotional wellness will naturally follow suit.
