Healthy Work

How healthy is your workplace?

Considering that the average adult spends at least 40 hours a week there, your place of work is a major part of your complete wellbeing.

Workplace safety and the prevention of injury are very important, but just as your health is more than the treatment of disease, there’s much more to your workplace health.

How does your work contribute to the stress in your life? How does it affect your sleep?

Is your work meaningful to you? Is what you do aligned with your deepest values?

Do you feel physically well at the end of your shift?

Do you have positive relationships with the people with whom you work?

At the end of each day, are you happy to come home because of a job well done . . . or are you just relieved that it’s finally over?

Next: Finding meaning and a sense of control at work.

    Boy if this isn’t true… and don’t I know it. My last job sucked the ever living life out of me on so many levels. This job I have now, is different but equally as stressful minus the interpersonal nonsense of the last job. Where I am now, there’s less of that and I have an office so I can go there and get away from things. At least until I start getting emails. 🙂 LOL
