As October is Healthy Workplace Month, we asked our Connectors for their best practices and tips for maintaining a healthy mind and body.
For physical health, I try to do a workout each day, even if it’s only 10 minutes, or I like to go for a long walk outdoors. I also do one or two yoga classes a week. These activities also help my mental health, along with regular meditation.
To keep a healthy lifestyle, I make sure to get outside and enjoy some fresh air every day with my dog Zeus.
For me, it's important to unplug and relax in the evenings - whether it be watching a little TV, a virtual game night, phone calls, or meeting up with friends and family. This helps me relax and sleep better, allowing me to be my best the next day!
My mental or physical health revolves around my four-year-old son, Dan. Walking with him to the park and then running around the park, reading bedtime stories, and hearing his stories at school keeps me physically fit, I love to be around him—just seeing him play or smile brightens my day.
I take short breaks throughout the day to stretch and move, and go for evening walks. I try to keep things in perspective when feeling overwhelmed. And I spend some time with my cat, Miles, of course.
For my mental health, I make sure I stay away from my phone as much as I can. After work, I prefer reading a book or drawing. For my physical health, I try to play tennis as much as I can, or go on trails for a nice nature walk.
