Correct rest is the key to productive work
This is an era of active living, workaholism and career racing. In permanent working deadlines a person spends a lot of energy, moral and physical strength. Before you know it, one working day is replaced by another, and here a year has passed, and the rest only dreams.
The most interesting thing is that many people do not go on a well-deserved vacation on their own initiative, in an effort to keep up and not to miss anything. Such a responsibility in relation to work is very commendable, but in relation to his body is a real crime. Therefore, we decided to write recommendations from Nayada – because our team is able not only to work well, but also to rest.
The most important rule is to prevent fatigue, that is, you need to rest before it appears. Come home exhausted and tired is not the norm, as paradoxical as it is, but you must have the strength to rest and homework. After all, light fatigue is easier to neutralize, but the chronic goes much worse, but it can still have a negative impact on overall health.
“Recreation is a change of activity” is not only a well-known phrase, but also a real way out of the situation. It is necessary to distribute the load during the day between mental and physical work.
Even if your field of activity is related to mental work, you need to find time for physical activity. Thus, the brain will be able to rest, reboot a little and prepare for the next stage. Even the alternation of one intellectual work with another helps to relax and increase efficiency.
We only dream of peace
The most important element of rest is a healthy sleep. At night, all body and nervous system functions are restored. You should fall asleep naturally at about the same time. To feel rested requires 7-9 hours of sleep, but there are exceptions – some people may feel great when sleeping at 5-6 hours.
However, sometimes the problem is not quantity, but the quality of sleep. It is impossible to feel cheerful if you turn around, cannot sleep, wake up several times a night.
There are a few tips to fix this inconvenience:
- Fall asleep with the window open or in a well-ventilated room.
- The quality of sleep depends on the condition of the nervous system. A walk in the fresh air or a warm shower before going to bed helps to relax and calm down.
- The bed should be comfortable and the bed linen should be clean and made of natural materials.
The wake-up time is also important. Don’t get up abruptly, lie down in bed for five minutes, stretch a few times. These simple techniques will help to disperse the blood, and prepare the body for a new productive day.
Work is not a wolf.
Many intellectuals know that fatigue from such work can be no less than physical activity. This feeling is called the illusion of physical fatigue. Strange as it may seem, this feeling can be overcome with a “wedge wedge” – physical activity.
That is, when you come home, you shouldn’t lie down on the sofa, it’s better to go for a walk, go to the gym, swimming pool, or ride a bicycle. Loads will show the body that the fatigue was false, but in fact you are full of hidden forces and energy.
Hiking in the sauna, sauna or relaxing massage will also help. This will help relieve the nervous and physical tension that has accumulated during the day. In the evening you can drink herbal tea at home, with the addition of mint, chamomile and thyme. It is also possible to relax after reading a book in the evening, but limit the time to an hour.
Holidays off should not be fully devoted to household chores. It’s easier to clean up every day than to dedicate a whole Saturday or Sunday for general cleaning. Leave one day off for a good rest, as it is your investment in the work capacity of the whole week.
Choose the activities you like, what you really like. But it is better to choose an active pastime, rather than aimless lying on the couch near the TV, which increases the sense of apathy and lethargy.
Meet friends and family, go to movies, exhibitions and concerts, and go out into nature. Even vacationing in a country house or working on a plot of land will help you to relax, if it really brings pleasure. The main thing at weekends is to avoid boredom and routine, it will only lead to an increase in fatigue.
It’s time to go on vacation.
It’s very important to go on vacation every year. If there are a lot of things to do, your job does not tolerate long absences or you have your own business, then you can split your vacation into several times. This way, you will have a rest and will not be absent from the control of important matters for a long time.
Holiday time is often spent on household chores and repairs. Of course, this is very practical and convenient, but not much that has anything to do with rest. Leave these days for yourself a loved one, full of relaxation and abstract from everyday life.
Choose a place to rest carefully and carefully. Otherwise, instead of the long-awaited relaxation, start counting the days until the end of the trip. Bad living conditions, terrible food, clouds of insects – only spoil everything. Read reviews about the travel agency, hotels, the area where you are going, seasonal weather – do your best not to get into trouble.
A little advice.
Here are a few rules that will help you to have a good rest on vacation.
- Do not take your laptop, documents or other things related to work with you.
- During the first days of your holiday, get a good night’s sleep and take a lot of fresh air.
- How to spend this time will tell you what your occupation is. If you are an office employee and spend your day sitting in front of a computer, it is better to choose an active rest. Conversely, in case of constant physical activity, it is better to spend your vacation reading a book, walking, cultural events.
- It is important to understand that rest is not idleness, so do not allow boredom and apathy, which acts not emotional and physical condition like daily fatigue.
In the end, I’d like to sum it up a little bit. Lack of rest is the absence of good productive work and stress. Also, do not forget that ill health affects not only you, but also others – family, friends, colleagues. So start learning the art of recreation right now.
