I worked on Wall Street for ten years before I burned out and quit. I left a six-figure salary, great benefits, and job security. My work was challenging and for the most part I liked the people I worked with. Over time, however, I began to lose focus and physically started to deteriorate. As my responsibility grew, I started feeling the stress to perform at higher levels. I was exhausted every day and mentally unmotivated. Then I started bitching about my job to anyone who would listen, becoming a cancer in the organization.
We all know that sitting is the new silent killer. Standing desk options are the new norm but why not take it up a notch for your wellness-minded attendees with a wobble board!
If you travel often, the effects that flying has on your body is probably the last thing you think about. From where you’re going to park your car for the trip to how long the security line is going to be, there are so many other things that take precedence when we consider flying somewhere. But at thousands of feet in the air in a pressurized cabin for hours at a time, our bodies work overtime making sure to keep us healthy, and they can be put under a lot of stress.
Decision fatigue can take a toll on your body and mind, especially when traveling. Use these tips to avoid exhaustion when you are on the road.
Business trips are usually packed with meetings and client dinners. The options for healthy, high quality are limited and usually far out of your way. Couple that with a back-to-back schedule, unavoidable sugary meeting snacks and a lot of sitting and doing nothing and chances are you aren’t going to feel your best when you get back home.
