In our increasingly work-centric society, it’s easy to get caught up on in tasks related to business and family. With so many responsibilities competing for your time, you might let one important job slip through the cracks: Preserving your mental health. At HCR, we recognize that employees can only be productive if they devote time and attention to their own wellness. Here are ten ways to put your health first.

    1. Be Kind

We’re often nicer to others than we are to ourselves. For best results, treat yourself with kindness and respect.

    1. Eat Right

What you put into your body matters, so nourish yourself with plenty of water, protein, fruits, and veggies.

    1. Minimize Stress

Don’t let stress get you down. Walking and journaling are two great ways to relax at the end of the day.

    1. Set the Right Goals

Goal-setting is great, but you shouldn’t set objectives that are impossible to achieve.

    1. Talk to a Friend

Most of us feel better when we share our feelings with pals. Find one or two friends whose opinions you trust and tell them what you’re thinking.

    1. Take a Break

Working hard has value, but that doesn’t mean you should keep your nose pressed to the grindstone 24/7. Breaks are necessary to rest and recharge.

    1. Get Some Sleep

Similarly, we all need sleep to rest our bodies and minds and boost our immune systems.

    1. Take a Vacation

When was the last time you got out of town? Take a week (or even a long weekend) to relax and get your bearings.

    1. Blast the AC

Bedroom too hot to sleep? Turn on the air conditioning before bed to make sure your home is cool enough to facilitate rest.

    1. Get Some Exercise

Get outside and move! The mood-boosting endorphins will carry you through the rest of the day.
