February is American heart month – dedicated to heightening the awareness of heart disease, spreading “heart healthy” ideas, and… as the CDC states, is “a time to show yourself the love”.
How does this relate to our industry? We’d like to think a lot of ways. We’re in the business of supporting your business operations in the hopes of making your life more manageable and therefore reducing stress, and allowing you more time to “show yourself the love”. In honor of American heart month, here are some ways we think we can help contribute the healthy heart cause:
- Create a more manageable workload – High stress levels have been tied to many heart conditions, and work related stress is one of the top inducers (if not the top) in America. Finding balance and feeling more in control of your schedule, tasks and overall workload will result in less pressure, anxiety and less strain on your body. As scary as it may be, the stress we endure in the workplace often manifests itself physically in our bodies. Do your heart a favor and utilize the resources around you, such as your local business center, to lighten your load and take some work off your own plate.
- Showing yourself the love – Choosing to utilize a virtual office often means gaining a more flexible schedule. You are no longer required to spend a certain amount of time in the office and you often have more control of your schedule. With that being the case, many times you will find the time to do more “you things”. Use this time wisely – go for a walk or a run, take your kids to the park, or attend a yoga class. Exercise, and relaxing/enjoyable activities are all heart healthy, so use your flexible schedule to your advantage!
- Personalizing Your Workspace – When you are not a part of a mandated office environment, you’re can make your workspace one that feels better for you. Whether you’re renting a part time office with us, or working from home via virtual office – listen to music that relaxes you, wear clothes you’re comfortable in (if the nature of your work allows)…we support whatever kind of business man/woman you are!
