Feeling tired in the office? Here is my #1 tip to instantly boost your energy during your work day!
This past week I traveled to Cavallo Point Lodge in Sausalito to host a new wellness workshop: “Reboot At Work. Healthy strategies for improved energy, productivity, and quality of life” for Genentech’s CT&D Impact team training offsite. It was my third time hosting a wellness seminar at the beautiful Cavallo point lodge. I feel incredibly grateful to have had another opportunity to share my passion and expertise for healthy living in this space. Some of the participants had attended my wellness presentation last April in Arizona and commented that they were using my suggestions from the presentation consistently in their lives. Its always nice to know the work you are doing really does impact positive lifestyle change. My goal is to make all of my work informative, uplifting, and provide real resources participants can immediately use to improve their wellness. I believe in the power of this work, in creating an environment of awareness and support, and in inspiring positive lifestyle change in individuals and hopefully the world as a result.
During our day together, I lead the team through an engaging presentation and team building exercises designed to inform, educate, and empower individual and company wellness. Wellness means something different to everyone. However we all want ENERGY to be present in our lives and do the things we love. But when you are struggling to juggle all your priorities and perform your best in your career, it leaves you feeling TIRED. My workshop at Cavallo Point helped to raise awareness of energizing work and lifestyle habits. It nurtured environmental support and empowered participants to personalize their approach to living well and to find the energy they deserve.
My number one suggestion to create healthy energy for a powerful work day? Movement. I believe exercise is one of the most powerful ingredients in having energy and living a healthy life. When you move your body you move your life. You want more energy? Get MOVING! Step away from your desk, unplug from your smartphone, leave your to-do list at home, and take a break for yourself. Get your blood flowing and your heart pumping. Ignite your metabolism and build lean muscles that will make you powerful inside and out. You are worth every ounce of effort.
I can guarantee you that getting up and getting moving is the most important decision you can make to improve your overall health, energy, and quality of life. Exercise is proven to stimulate the release of endorphins, a chemical in the brain that is shown to to be a natural antidepressant. All forms of movement prompt you to use muscles in a different way from sedentary activity, which forces oxygen rich blood to flow throughout the body, increasing energy. The stretching and contracting of muscles and tendons relieves stiffness, pain, and tension. And the best part is improving your physical health through exercise boosts your mental strength and confidence, enabling you to better manage life’s challenges and live without burnout. Exercise is the best antidote to stress and the fastest way to have more energy in your life.
Total fitness requires consistency and commitment. But with the right information, support, and mindset you CAN incorporate movement into your life as a regular habit. Doing so will help keep you mobile, happy, and fit. You’ll be the type of person who is up for anything, a mover who can handle life’s challenges with ease.
The seminar at Cavallo Point was a great success and I left Sausalito smiling with purpose. You know you are doing the work you are meant to do when it energizes you from head to toe. Another great way to get energy: DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
Work-life balance is a continuous commitment and constantly evolving work in progress. We all need regular reminders to take care of ourselves and to practice wellness. It is my hope is that through these workshops and events I can be a reminder that empowers self care and a healthier, happier world. Lets work together and continue this positive healthy momentum. We are the change and can “be the change” in living with health, balance, energy, and enthusiasm.
