In Ways to Improve your health at work – part 1 we saw how increased working hours in front of our laptops and every free minute spent on the phone can create health issues for us. Though these issues start small, with minor niggling pains and aches, they have a tendency to over a period of time snowball into major health issues.

Today, there are expert practitioners who are available online and offline who can help you with various health issues without the use of drugs and chemicals.

Lets look at some more ways how we can help ourselves lead a healthier life,

  1. Give your eyes a break

Most of us don’t know this but it is important to keep the eyes at an arm’s length away from the laptop/computer screen you’re using at work. If you are unable to read the screen properly, consider increasing the font size instead of moving closer to it or hunching your back over the screen.

Another thing you can do while taking a break, is exercising your eyes. Simply palming, massaging, making the figure 8 with your eyes or doing directional eye exercises can go a long way. They will strengthen your eye muscles, improve focus, eye movements and keeping the vision center of your brain stimulated.

Alternative medicine:

Naturopathy and nutritional therapy can help you keep your eyes healthy for a longer time. Herbs such as coleus, cannabis, gingko, green tea and eyebright are known to improve eye health.  Yoga is another therapy which can help you relieve stress from eyes through different eye exercises.

  1. Stretch regularly

When you sit long hours in the same position, your joints and muscles remain immobilised for prolonged periods that might result in them becoming weaker. Most working professionals experience neck and back muscle pains on a regular basis, and that’s indication enough to give your muscles a break!

You might have a lot to achieve during the day, but give your body a break every now and then. Simply stand up and stretch every 30 minutes or walk around your cubicle a few times. You can even set a reminder for the same!

Small changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, walking up to a colleagues cubicle instead of mailing or messaging them, can also help. Controlling the level of physical activities through a sedentary day, is entirely in your hands.

Alternative medicine:

Practicing yoga therapy – breath control, meditation and adoption of specific bodily postures, even for 10 to 15 minutes a day can go a long way.  For those who have chronic neck and lower back pains, acupressure and acupuncture, could bring lasting relief.

  1. Don’t binge eat

Next time, your colleague offers you a pack of chips because they’re on a break, refuse! Constantly binging on chips, biscuits, samosas, etc through the day to keep boredom at bay can cause harm to the body. It is the reason behind weight gain, high cholesterol levels, fatigue and even mood swings at work!

Stick to fruits and soy-based chips, if you are hungry. Have green tea at regular intervals daily to detoxify your body. Avoid juices in carton boxes and fizzy drinks.

Alternative medicine:

Diet planed under an expert nutritionist, can ensure that you have the right food and snacks at the right time and stay away from binging.

Please remember that this is your body and you’re responsible for it much longer than your current job’s requirement. While performing at work is becoming increasing important with the rising competition, it is also a fact that an unhealthy body is not going to take you anywhere. Being healthy and happy leads to a productive and efficient employee.

Make convenient and conscious changes that will steer you in the direction of a healthy, balanced and a successful life.

Five days a week (and in some cases, six), nine hours of sitting in a chair and staring at the computer is as discomforting as it sounds. And it can take a serious toll on your physical as well as mental well-being.

Since most of our waking hours are spent at work, a large majority of us end up leading a sedentary lifestyle that brings down your health to an all-time low. Stress, chronic neck and backaches, weight gain and most importantly, depression are few of the common reasons behind work-related ill-health. Do you feel fresh and energized for going to office the next day?

The worst part here though, is that your body over time doesn’t even seem to mind the occasional pains, sudden mood swings and tiredness. Until it burns out, gives up and leaves us wondering why!

Now we all know that getting up for a morning walk is impossible when we sleep past midnight, and equally impossible to fit in an hour of gym when you reach home at dinner time. So what if we could make just simple tweaks to your usual workday instead to stay fit and agile?

Yes, it is possible and here are a few great tips to maintain your health at work:

  1. Breathe deeply

People who are under stress take shorter breaths which sometime turns into desperate gasps. Over time, this becomes a habit and makes you feel stressed even when you’re not stressed. This is why one must make conscious efforts to take deep breaths not only while at work, but also while doing the daily chores.

Breathing deeply helps in getting higher quantity of oxygen reach the lungs and blood stream which in turn helps the brain function more efficiently. Meditation is an effective way to stay focused, incorporate deep breathing in your daily life and reduce stress at work.

Even though you may not have the time to get into meditation mode on a daily basis – sneaking in 10 deep breaths while you’re making your morning coffee or getting dressed will help.

Alternative medicine:

If you are extremely stressed, consider taking aromatherapy. It involves the application or inhalation of aromatic essential oils, extracted from plants to give your body a sense of relief.

Reiki and pranic healing are energy healing techniques which can help you deal with stress and its related symptoms very effectively. Alternatively, you can choose practicing emotional freedom technique that combines psychotherapy and acupressure to tap your stress away.

  1. Drink lots of water

Most of us tend to forget drinking water as often as we should in a day. The reason being, half the time we’re so engrossed in work that it skips our mind completely and when we do find the time, we reach out for a cup of tea or coffee to keep going. And that’s exactly where we go wrong!

Your body ‘needs’ water to function. In fact, you are putting your body at risk by not staying hydrated enough. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water regularly to control weight gain, prevent headaches, keep the kidneys in order and maintain a happy mood.

Alternative medicine:

If you are averse to water, then you can always replace it with some fruits and vegetables which hydrate the body twice as effectively as a glass of water.  They make a refreshing snack option during the hot summer months. Top of the list are Watermelon, Cucumber, Strawberries, Grapes, Orange, Cranberries, Blueberries, Plums, Apples, Pears, Lettuce, Celery, Zucchini, Radish, Tomato, Cabbage and many more. There are expert nutritionists who can help you prepare your diet chart along with recipes depending on your life style and day schedule

3. Take a walk post-lunch

Having your lunch and immediately getting back to work is still unhealthy. This will make you lethargic and decrease your mental activity in the latter half of the day. So the next time you have lunch in office, ensure you take a short stroll before getting back to your seat and going through the daily grind.

These short walks will regulate your blood sugar, burn fat, build muscle and keep your body weight under check.

Alternative medicine:

nutritional therapy can help you plan your diet depending on your daily schedule and ensuring that the food you intake in energizing and invigorating

Please remember that this is your body and you’re responsible for it much longer than your current job’s requirement. While performing at work is becoming increasing important with the rising competition, it is also a fact that an unhealthy body is not going to take you anywhere. Being healthy and happy leads to a productive and efficient employee.

Make convenient and conscious changes that will steer you in the direction of a healthy, balanced and a successful life. Watch out for some more tips in the part 2

A recent study by WHO found that more than 75% of Indians under the age of 40 suffer from stress-related illnesses. They stem not only from poor lifestyle choices, but are also symptomatic of a stressful work environment. Increasing pressures of tight deadlines, team disharmony, project overload and work disengagement are just some of the daily challenges that characterize the modern workplace.

Employees suffering from high stress levels have lower engagement, are less productive and have higher absenteeism levels. It is imperative with such an epidemic to ensure the mental and emotional welfare of employees.

Truly enlightened businesses put holistic employee welfare first. They seek to address workplace tension head-on, creating a culture of harmony, engagement and creativity. This is the bedrock of all highly productive trailblazing companies. Companies such as Apple, Google, McKinsey etc., craft programs that embrace holistic well-being for their employees.

McKinsey partner and meditation aficionado Michael Rennie says, “What’s good for the spirit is good for the bottom line.”

Some of the techniques that are being used by corporate to empower their employees

What are they including in their corporate wellness programs? Embracing these 9 phenomenally powerful ‘New Age’ methods and training:

1. Meditation: The simplest and most transformative tool is a 15-minute meditation. From the United States Marines to high-performing companies such as Google and General Mills, the benefits of workplace meditation are universally praised. It helps reduce hypertension, increase clarity and improve interpersonal communication. Passive meditation calms the nervous system and brain, overcoming anxiety and stress. Active and mindful meditation brings the goal into focus, increasing positivity and creativity. Group meditations are especially powerful. The ‘Maharishi Effect’ is proof of its transformative power. They generate waves of vibrational flow that rapidly improve biology, collective culture and creativity.

2. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP): NLP provides practical tools to gain clarity on goals as well asstrategies to achieve them easily and creatively. NLP uses 2 powerful forces that determine the very fabric of our lives — neural patterns in the brain, and language cues across all modes of communication. Through “trance” communication and imagination, the subconscious mind is focused on the desired results. NLP skills are especially highly valued in marketing, sales, client management and leadership development. The tools of NLP have helped countless people, from overcoming fears to improving strategic skills to devising market-disruptive technologies. In the words of Tony Robbins, “the only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment.”

3. Silva Mind Control Method: The Silva Method goes beyond the subconscious mind to activate and harness the power of higher brain functions. This method leads the brain into alpha and theta states that open up access to higher wisdom.Further techniques dramatically increase one’s intuition, focus and extra sensory abilities. And then goes a step further giving you the power to heal your body and manifest your vision. At the core of manifesting is your intent. When that intent is focused, extraordinary things can happen. Successful authors such as Jack Canfield and Richard Bach have experienced phenomenal breakthroughs in their writing using the Silva Method.

4. Emotional Freedom Techniques (Tapping): How many times have you let fear stop you from doing something you love? Beliefs that you are incapable or people will criticise you can sabotage your efforts and happiness. EFT is a simple yet effective tool. Lightly tapping on specific acupressure points on the body immediately begin to helps release negative beliefs and past traumas from a cellular level. And when paired with affirmations, this process becomes extremely powerful. Recently, one of my clients who was visiting a prospective customer, tapped out her worries on the way to a meeting. When she sat for the meeting, she was so calm and confident with the customer that she was able to get the business.

5. Access Consciousness: With Access Consciousness, we foray into the world of ‘energy work’. Every thought, emotion and belief has a vibration. Even desired results such as revenue, customers, smooth operations have a vibration of their own. Access Consciousness primarily uses questions and statements that bring up these energies to have a profound cleansing. Through the ‘power of the question’, it further attracts the vibration of the desired results. One of my friends had a particularly difficult co-worker. Every time she had to interact with the colleague, she mentally used the simplest question-tool, “How does it get better than this?” Within two weeks, their team work had improved to such an extent that they were able to complete their project ahead of schedule.

6. Law of Attraction: Many books and articles have been written in recent years on the Law of Attraction. The most popular of course is ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne. Through emotion-based visualisation, you raise your energy to vibrate at the frequency of what you want. But how this applies to an organisation is even more spectacular. Every corporation vibrates at a certain frequency. This attracts certain types of customers, employees and keeps it at a certain operational level. Many times, despite new strategies and action plans, the business does not grow. When employees come together and channel the law of attraction, the entire frequency of the business changes. With higher energies, come the right opportunities, cohesive operations and rapid business growth.

7. Energy HealingReikiPranic Healing, Theta Healing etc., may not be new concepts to you. Receiving energy healing is a relaxing and uplifting experience. When medication or therapy is supplemented with energy work, people have experienced faster and deeper healing. Recipients enjoy holistic well-being at physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. The basic foundation to all energy work is that everything is naturally biased towards growth, well-being and expansion. The healer and healee simply facilitate this process. The body returns to health. The mind returns to stability. The heart returns to joy. Is there anything better than happy employees?

Angel Healing: What would your life and business be like if you have a team of angels managing everything? We all have Guides, Angels and Mentors in the subtle dimension. They’re waiting to help us and seek ways to communicate their happy presence to us. All we need do is ask for their help. With their higher wisdom and ability to assist in manifestation, they are a formidable team working on our side. Recently, I asked my team of “business development” angels to help me connect with the best client for me. A few days later I suddenly got the impulse to attend an informal meet-up. With the utmost ease and grace I was able to meet and sign on a client who was also attending the same event.

9. Power of Stories: Stories spark emotion. They are great healing tools that help us make sense of the world we live in. They inspire hope and passion, igniting us into creative action. Stories speak directly to the subconscious or what in academic circles is called the ‘psyche’. Jungian psychology explores the various archetypes and symbols that pervade every individual’s psyche. The right story can help us articulate how we feel and find creative solutions to challenges. Various agencies, from corporations to the military to prisons use the power of stories and storytelling. They are a powerful tool to initiate change.
