Working the Self.
Whether you’re sitting at a desk for hours or on your feet all day, taking time out to take to refresh and recharge doesn’t have to take very long, but a few minutes of rest can make the world of difference to how you feel and how you respond to your clients.
Over time, there has been a massive advancement in workplace employee care. Many well-known, highly successful companies like Google, Yahoo, Nike, & HBO have incorporated mediation rooms or designated small, quiet areas specifically for time to refresh, clear the mind or just to take a quiet breather to maintain focus and restore mental fatigue throughout the day. This leads to higher focus and retention rates and higher quality of work.
I believe especially within high-pressure industries this practice should be made available and taken on board as a necessity for companies to offer such a space and time to help regenerate and combat stressful and overwhelming environments for their employees.
Below is a list of quick and easy methods you can follow to refresh yourself whilst you’re at work. Enjoy.
