Sometimes the best thing you can do for your company is entirely internal. Health research suggests that taking care of yourself makes you a better employee.
In his article for Entrepreneur, Moe Kittaneh points out how health is ulti-faceted; sleep, diet, exercise, and mental rest all contribute to our well being. And addressing each concept is essential to being a productive and happy worker.
Sleep is one aspect which Kittaneh stressed especially. If you’re a Huffington Post fan, then you know that Arianna’s focus lately has emphasized how unhealthy our overworked and under rested population is. Check out her TedTalk on the subject here.
We could all improve on some facet of our health. So take a minute and review what changes we can make to contribute better in the office and live more comfortable lives after work.
