The month of June brings us Professional Wellness Month, a great time to examine the relationship between well-being in our lives and with our work. Our mental, physical, emotional, and economic well-being are often closely interlinked. Since we spend a significant portion of our lives working, it may not be surprising that the quality of our lives can be affected by our work environment. Likewise, when we practice good self-care, it can help us be more productive, creative, focused, innovative and valuable to our organization or for our clients.
Statistics indicate that an increasing number of people are struggling with mental health issues and that stress in the workplace is responsible for a significant part of this. Studies indicate that work-related stress is caused by a constantly increasing work pace along with interruptions, and the expectation to handle multiple tasks at once.
Therefore, a work environment that supports both physical and mental wellness is critical. A healthy workplace should include a good work-life balance along with opportunities for growth, development, involvement, and positive recognition. Of course, we are typically happier when we are motivated by the work itself and people who are happy at work are generally more effective, engaged, and fruitful.
Further, there are indications that staying busy is an important tool for happiness, but it can feel challenging to take care of ourselves when we have such busy schedules. However, self-care doesn’t need to be time-consuming. Good self-care can consist of simple practices such as staying active, eating a healthy diet, good sleep habits, and proper hydration. It’s important to find the approach that works best for you. You can’t always do everything at once so set realistic goals, be kind to yourself and pace yourself.
Drinking water is an excellent first step to help you improve your health and well-being when you have a hectic schedule, but to enjoy the benefits, it’s crucial to ensure that the water you’re consuming is as clean and pure as possible. Unfiltered water can contain chemicals and contaminants that can cause many undesirable health issues.
Water from a high-quality whole home filtration system is a much safer choice to be assured of drinking the best. Brita PRO’s whole home filtration improves both the taste and quality of water for drinking and cooking, as well as, bathing and cleaning, with a high-capacity filtration system that makes pure, fresh water easy to access, encouraging and supporting adequate fluid intake.
