Work can be stressful, but your life before and after your job doesn’t have to be! I am a huge believer that the energy you surround yourself with will set the mood for the rest of the day. Another rule I always follow is to never bring my work home with me; this has helped to balance my work & life but has also given me the freedom that we all deserve.
Every since I started waking up at the same time every day (aside from Sunday because no body has time for an early Sunday morning), I have felt more accomplished throughout the day. I use the Sleep Cycle to track my sleep and rest time.
Yerba Mate (also found in SporTea) has been used for generations as a coffee substitute in South America. It gives you fluid energy without the crash or jittery-ness of coffee. I don’t know about you, but some coffees give me pretty bad headaches, and this gives me just the amount of energy I need.
P.S. I have a SporTea coupon under my “Shop” tad!
Homemade Matcha Latte for the commute to work
If you are a commuter, these will help shorten the ride to and from work. They are 100% worth the investment.
1 drop of Valor in my hand & breathe
This helps to set my intention and mood for the day. Valor is a great encouraging and balancing oil.
During the day:
Water is your friend
Don’t try to go the entire day on coffee or tea, caffeinated beverages hold dehydrating properties.
Bring or keep an insulated mug at your desk to keep your water cold
Organizing your day
Cute pens help
Not only do they help you color coordinate but they also make your life less boring in the office
Not only does this eliminate your intake of Advil for headaches, it actually works. I swear by this roller and any of my friends who have tried it feel the same way. It is a life savor, and a top seller on Saje.
Other things I love
Try to bring routine into your day. I try to get at last 6 hours of sleep a night, the more sleep… the better your next day is!
Make sure to pack a healthy and colorful lunch, to avoid the afternoon lunch.
Stand once an hour, if you sit at a desk.
If you feel tired, walk around your office for a bit or go outside. Fresh air can help clear your head more than anything.
If you are truly stuck in your job, it’s ok to apply for other positions! You are the driving force of your future, never feel bad to pursue your dreams or a career path.
If you need help with a resume or cover letter, shoot me an email and I would be happy to help!
Remember, every day comes to an end. Don’t let the stresses of work effect your life, mood or overall health. Remember that a healthy mind is one of the most important things you can have… cherish that!
