If only you could get paid to lose weight and get in shape. That’s the thought that goes through our minds when we see movie stars who are in the best shape of their lives.
When you think about it, though, your health and wellness is as much a part of your professional development as anything else.
In episode 103, Health and Wellness coach, Yuliya Chernykhovskaya, shares some key insights about how living healthy can benefit all aspects of your life, including your career. For those of you that have been following the show for a while, you’ll notice that healthy living at work is something that we’ve never discussed before.
But healthy living has as much a positive impact on your career as anything else you might be pursuing. Here are some highlights from this episode:
You must commit
Did you know that most people give up on their New Year resolutions before the end of January? That’s likely due to the fact that most people don’t consider what it will take to actually achieve their goals.
The first step to healthy living is to make a commitment. Identify why you want to do it and remain focused on the benefits that will come to you as you stick with it.
Stay focused on the small steps
Living healthy can be difficult, especially if you fall off the bandwagon. But it’s important to remember that small steps are still steps. Feel rewarded and accomplished as you take each small step towards your ultimate goal.
Healthy living at work
A small step in the right direction could be as simple as drinking more water, or going for a short walk during your lunch break. After all, something is better than nothing.
Change your mindset
What if your paycheck was dependent on your health? The success you experience in your career is directly associated with how you feel, how you perform, and how you think. When you neglect your health, productivity often decreases. Depression can set in, and before you know it, you’re in a downward spiral.
