Staying Happy and Healthy on the Job: 5 Energy-Management Tips for Active Workers

According to a recent study commissioned by MILO, the recent boom in the Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) industry has prompted the growth in number of career opportunities for young Filipino professionals. However, the controlled schedules and the stressful work environment have greatly affected the health and fitness habits of employees. More than 70 percent of workers in each outsourcing company do not engage in wellness activities that improve productivity and reduce risks of developing stress-related illnesses.

Getting ahead at work, making family dinners, and fitting leisure activities into the timetable are among the ever-present challenges that professionals deal with every day. Without an effective routine and a healthy mindset, work and life can become a difficult balancing act. MILO believes that with time and the other factors that affect a steady lifestyle, young professionals must create an action plan to run the hurdles on and off the workplace.

More than 70 percent of workers in each outsourcing company do not engage in wellness activities that improve productivity and reduce risks of developing stress-related illnesses1.

Getting ahead at work, making family dinners, and fitting leisure activities into the timetable are among the ever-present challenges that professionals deal with every day. Without an effective routine and a healthy mindset, work and life can become a difficult balancing act. MILO believes that with time and the other factors that affect a steady lifestyle, young professionals must create an action plan to run the hurdles on and off the workplace. Here are a few energizing tips to help balance life and the daily grind.

Do one task at a time

The eagerness to tick all the boxes on your to-do list can persuade you to do multiple tasks at the same time. This can only bring stress and in some cases, cause you to fail in accomplishing any work.

Save yourself from juggling. Carefully plot daily responsibilities and carry them out one at a time. Prioritizing will enable you to bank on energy for bigger duties that may come your way and allow you more time to plan your next move.

Set perimeters

May it be a desk or a field job, minimizing distractions can help drive you to finish with energy and time to spare. Avoid doing unnecessary activities and focus on what must be done. Constantly review your daily goals and identify and eliminate the factors that may keep you from achieving them.

Build on inspirations

Some work environments can be stale and provide less motivation for employees. Nevertheless, this should not be a reason for you to be less determined to succeed. The energy that you put in what you do must be tantamount to things that inspire you. This will give you more willpower to create change in your surroundings and get the job done.

Take a break

Remember that a 5-minute break from hard work can go a long way. Taking on too much work load in a day can keep you from being organized. Commit a block of time to pooling your energy or clearing your mind of the stress ahead.

Get fit

While a perfectly managed routine can lead to a strong career, building and maintaining a sound mind and fit body still prove to be powerful in propelling success at any work environment. Getting the job done calls for physical, mental, and emotional readiness and nothing can prep you better than a good long run.

While most sports offer a number of health benefits, running has the ability to engage every individual’s physical and mental state and boost activity.Various studies have proved that hitting the trail can contribute greatly on improving one’s immune system, reducing stress, and weight loss. It can also develop a healthier heart and stimulate the brain.

According to locally renowned fitness coach Jim Saret, being prone to injuries and other age-related illnesses can be linked to lack of exercise. “Deskbound individuals are more likely to feel age taking its toll –especially when they are constantly under the pressure of work. Running is the perfect solution to get in shape. As soon as one’s legs hit their stride, there is a positive impact on agility and endurance that can fuel the body for a day’s work,” said Coach Jim. 

The MILO-APEX Running Clinic brings elite training workouts and sports medicine based running principles for beginners, amateurs, and professional marathoners. The program offers various assessment sessions to guide runners into the world of athletics based on their physical condition and skill level.

MILO will continue to work towards a strengthened Philippine professional and athletic communityby creating quality products and opportunities for the youth and adults alike.
