Your body and the way that you treat it is an integral part of your personal well-being, including your well-being in the workplace. The standard position in which we do out work, sitting or often even slumped down behind a computer at a standard desk is really not conducive for either relaxation or achieving states of high energy. Becoming more aware of the physical aspects of well-being can act to mitigate these conditions.
Very simple things such as the way you breathe, or the way you position your body can make a crucial difference between whether you feel well or rather the opposite. Several concrete tips and tricks can be employed to feel better, and to effectively change your energy levels to either lessen tension or to be better equipped to handle a given workload. These can include such things as simply expanding the chest, breathing differently or just taking a different physical position. Being aware of all this can have a markedly positive impact on your physical well-being and your well-being at work.
