Does Your Health Affect Your Productivity?

In a perfect world, everyone would eat lots of vegetables, get the right amount of exercise, and sleep a full 8 hours every night. But when a fast-paced lifestyle is enough to make your head spin on a good day, it’s tough to eat right, exercise, and get enough sleep.

Sure, you’re beat by the end of the week… But did you ever consider the effect your overall health may be having on your productivity?

Are any of these red flags flying in your life? Smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high alcohol intake, high stress, a sedentary lifestyle. You might be inclined to overlook them, but each and every one of these health factors can make a negative impact on your productivity.

Tempted to show up for work when you’re sick? Not only do you put your co-workers at risk for catching what you have, but your productivity will take a nose-dive as well.

The solution? Carve out some time from your busy schedule to take care of YOU! Plan for it, then do it!
