Is your daily schedule so full of meetings, appointments, and errands that you can't find a moment for self-care? Unfortunately, in today's society, most of us prioritize completing our to-do list rather than maintaining healthy lifestyles. This doesn't have to be a binary choice. Yes, you can still be super productive and efficient without totally neglecting your personal wellbeing! With the use of some planning, time management, and discipline, you can reconcile your routine to take care of yourself and your work responsibilities in a positive manner.
Did you know that September is National Self-Care Awareness Month? This month aims to shed light on different practices one can do to create balance in their life. Self-care can be about treating ourselves, but it is also about maintaining a healthy lifestyle that enables us to be our best selves at work. In a time where it can be hard to disconnect and easy to overwork oneself, self-care is more important than ever. Here are four reasons why you should incorporate it into your work life:
1. Prevent Burnout
With the challenges of the past year and a half, and uncertainty about the future, burnout is at an all-time high. Burnout at work affects one’s psychological and physical health, and can easily spill over and impact our personal lives as well.
Being part of a workspace that values your entire self is key to keeping burnout at bay. Look for spaces with a gym, outdoor areas, separate places to eat, and quiet rooms for when you need a change of scenery. When your company and space encourage healthy office habits, you’ll feel better and work better.

We all have coworkers who seem to have it all together—including what seems like an impossible exercise routine. We imagine them waking up at 5 AM and tossing together a body and mind nourishing smoothie, heading out for a run while watching the sun rise, and still managing to arrive early at the office with the kind of glow you can’t pay for. Or maybe they use their lunch hour for a local yoga class, hit the gym for a session with a personal trainer after the day ends, or any other number of time-consuming fitness activities.
