There are the busy days you prepare for, and those that sneak up on you. Back to back meetings can be stressful on their own, but your energy level doesn’t have to be as bogged down as your meeting schedule. There are several ways employees can keep their bodies and minds sharp through the course of a busy day, and different methods employers can implement during workshops and conferences. Your mood has a direct effect on the room you’re in; here are tips to make yours the one that inspires creativity.
Foods high in protein like nuts, yogurt, jerky, and trail mix are perfect in between meetings to give your metabolism a push. Protein snacks take more digestive energy than carbohydrates and give you a steady blood sugar level throughout your busy day.
Your posture hugely influences your mood and energy and can cause back pain if maintained poorly and in a sedentary position for too long. Maintain blood flow to your brain with a relaxed posture. Don’t hunch your shoulders or tighten your neck. Mom was right when she said, “Sit up straight.”
Several studies have shown that people feel more alive when they are in nature, even if it’s right outside the office. Utilize nearby parks, go for a walk, or if you’re really lucky, try your workspace roof top. When your employees’ bodies are in new spaces, their brains are more likely to develop new ideas.
The simple act of getting out of your seat and writing on white board will keep your body and mind in motion. Pass a ball around the room as you discuss, or take a moment to stand up and stretch every half hour. If you’re serious about wellness in the workplace, bring in Massage At Work!
