The average American now goes on vacation less frequently than in decades past. Worse yet, thanks to mobile technologies, people can stay in contact with their supervisors, colleagues, clients, and patients outside of work hours.
Having your job on your mind at all times can be harmful. For instance, it can be responsible for:
- Raising negative stress levels.
- Increasing a person’s risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other serious medical problems.
- Making someone less productive and more inclined to make mistakes.
Fortunately, you have at your disposal relatively simple methods for recharging your mental batteries.
The Value of Vacation
The first strategy may be the most obvious: going away for a few days or a few weeks. Taking two or three vacations per year can be a great way to renew your spirit.
However, if you’re a workaholic, you must strive to leave your job behind if you want your vacation to be effective. Therefore, other than the occasional phone call to the office or quick email check, try not to discuss or even think about work on your trip.
Especially helpful are laid-back vacations during which you can commune with nature and get exercise in the form of swimming, hiking, and so forth. Those getaways can lower your toxic stress levels and let you return to work feeling fully refreshed.
Hobbies for Your Health
It’s possible to get a respite from your professional life without leaving your hometown. That is, you could take up a fun, rewarding hobby.
You could paint, learn to play a musical instrument, start playing tennis, or get involved in something else that engages your mind and your passions. When you’re fully immersed in this pastime, you’ll be able to derive some of the same benefits of going away on vacation, including reducing your stress.
Certain hobbies, like yoga and meditation, are especially powerful when it comes to eliminating anxiety. Plus, practicing mindfulness ― an intense focus on the present moment ― may keep you from feeling overwhelmed by the daily professional challenges that you face.
Indeed, yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and the like can instill a peace of mind that will prove extremely valuable. It can keep you calm when you face setbacks and deal with antagonistic people. Moreover, it can let you put your difficulties into proper perspective, find the most effective ways of dealing with them, and then forget about them so that you can go work on other things.
A Workplace of Delights
Finally, there may be times when all you need is a momentary mental escape. For that reason, you might keep in your office fresh flowers, a bottle of perfume, photos of your favorite landscapes, or anything else that has the power to instantly make you feel happier and more at ease.
After you quickly look at or sniff one of those items, you might feel revitalized and more prepared to take on your tasks for the day.
