Is Self-care The Key To Work Productivity?

You’d be surprised that self-care is the way to put a smile on your employer’s face. The best thing about this approach is that you won’t even have to spend a lot of money

You’d be surprised that self-care is the way to put a smile on your employer’s face. The best thing about this approach is that you won’t even have to spend a lot of money. You can take care of yourself by simply setting time aside for meditation, reading a good self-help book, taking a jog, or spending quality time with your loved ones.

So how exactly can self-care increase your work productivity?

    You’ll work on your stressors - making yourself a priority means that you’ll have less to worry about, as you’ll immerse yourself in identifying the things that negatively affect your output. This way, you’ll have fewer distractions while at work, thus increasing the chances of meeting your employer’s expectations. 

    You’ll have a better relationship with your colleagues – an office setting comprises people with different personalities. For example, one of your colleagues might be annoying, and it can be challenging to work under the same team. By realizing the best version of yourself, you’ll appreciate that every individual is different, and that’s not a mistake. As a result, you’ll figure out how to relate with your fellow employee in a manner that doesn’t leave both of you frustrated.

    You’ll start setting necessary boundaries – at times, employees feel the need to work long hours or accept specific treatment within the workplace, to prove that they’re doing more than the rest. By investing in your mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing, you’ll become brave enough to say no to what you feel doesn’t benefit you. As a result, you’ll work towards attaining a high productivity level on your terms.
