Stop Neglecting Your Health In The Workplace

This may come as a shock: Desk jobs can significantly shorten your life expectancy. It is time for a wake-up call. Your workplace can affect your physical and mental health in ways you may not realize.

Indoor air quality, for instance, can be a source of worries. Did you know that the office air could be dirtier than the air in the street? Just because you can’t see pollution and harmful particles, it doesn’t mean they are not there. Heavy workload is another common issue that can contribute to damaging your work/life balance.

Overworked professionals feel isolated from any supportive network, either friends or relatives. They are also more vulnerable to burnout and nervous breakdown. Unfortunately, as an employee, both air quality and workload are out of your control.

With the rise in working from home, it’s even more important to take your health seriously. However, there are healthy choices that you can make for yourself to make your experience of the workplace healthier.

How To Start A Career As A Mental Health Professional

It’s only been in the last couple of years that we’ve really started to understand the importance of mental health. In the past, people didn’t really know that much about mental health issues and that means they didn’t understand how important it is to talk about issues and seek help from a professional if necessary.

Increased awareness means that more people are getting the help that they need, and that’s great. However, that does raise another issue. There is a big lack of resources out there because there isn’t enough funding and there aren’t enough properly trained mental health professionals out there.

How Telehealth Can Help With Medical Advice

Something that I tell myself and whoever cares enough to listen is that you can never be doing too much when it comes to taking care of your health – physically and mentally! This is where I love the idea of telehealth or telemedicine.

The first time I got introduced into the world of telehealth was after receiving my benefits information for a new job I had recently started once I was done with my Post-Graduate. As an immigrant, it was new to me. I remember being told that I could download an app and will have access to a number of doctors for listed health issues.

I never really got around to using it as much as I should have, but I was able to use it for prescription deliveries when needed. It was a way to stay on track of my health needs and reading about other benefits fascinated me at the time.
