Occupational Wellness is a sense of fulfillment through our chosen career paths and a healthy balance between work and other aspects of life. An occupationally well person enjoys what they do and derives a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment through their work, in a manner that is consistent with their personal values, goals, and lifestyle.
Tips for Occupational Wellness
Cultivate A Work/Life Balance -
As important as work is, it is crucial that you are balancing your work life and personal life. Avoiding overworking yourself will help you to not feel burnt out. Find things to do throughout the week that you enjoy, and schedule them into your day so you have time to dedicate to having fun.
Get Organized -
Having an organized workspace can help keep you on task. Take time to organize your workspace in a way that fits your style. Doing so can help you feel more relaxed and ready to take on the workday. Knowing where everything is can give a clean, and professional look to your work area.
Set Goals -
Setting three to five goals throughout the workday will help to break up the day, and leave you feeling more accomplished. Setting benchmark goals of when tasks should get done throughout the day begins to become more fun and motivating.
Take A Break -
Taking a break at work can actually improve job performance, and help to reduce work stress. Take a few five-minute breaks throughout the workday to help strengthen the mental focus on the tasks at hand. When taking these breaks, you can get up from your desk, take a walk, stretch, or talk to a coworker to get your mind off of work for a moment.
