Being Healthy on your First Job

As a fresh graduate, your body is at its peak. You are just fresh out of college and you have been a little bit active in sports and other activities. As a result, your body is working well and you are able to do a lot of tasks a 50-year old adult could not do.

This could even translate into productivity since a healthy body will always mean a healthy mind. When your body is at its top condition, you cannot be easily stressed which means your mind is at its optimal level as well. Your healthy body could be your ticket to success.

But a healthy body could only be effective and efficient when you are able to maintain it. There is a great possibility that once you found a good job, you may be focusing on it too much that you end up ignoring your body.

You could end up sick or lose that fit body of yours. Although some could still be as productive even though they lose their well figured body, it is always a recommendation to maintain your body. This will ensure that you are on top condition which will lead to better decision making.

Proper Sleep

One of the things that are often ignored by professionals is a good sleeping habit. There are those who are so dedicated to work that they end up working until late at night that they only end up sleeping three or four hours a day.

Although you show a lot of dedication for work, you are slowly deteriorating your mental capacity because of the lack of sleep.

If you work for 18 hours a day, your body will eventually take its toll since you are unable to stop for anything.

You can regard sleep as your "reset" button wherein everything starts from the better state.

If you continue to pound your body with work without ample six to eight hours of sleep everyday, you can be easily stressed and you cannot think correctly.

And proper rest is not cumulative rest. Do not think that your body will be ok if you sleep four hours now and four hours later.

Sleep continuously for eight hours and your body will be performing well compared to two four-hour rest.

Food and Exercise

Food is the fuel of your body and exercise is your oil. Without food your body will not be working and without exercise your body will not be working well. But that does not mean you can just eat any food with any amount.

If you can stick to a healthy food regimen the better. Your body and mind does not need cholesterol, excessive sugar and fat since they cannot really help at all and might even block your thinking.

Regular exercise should never be ignored as well. Through your regular exercise, you will be able to release the tension in your body.

Stress will really bring down your body and one of the best ways to release those stress is to exercise.  Think of your body as a machine – if you do not give proper rest, add fuel and oil it, it will never work well.
