01 Jul Live. Work. Play – TDHS Wellness Club | Cheryl Poole
Relaxing after work comes with many benefits to both your personal and professional life. Some reasons why it is important to relax after work are;
- Greater mental health: Finding time to relax after work can help you de-stress and focus on something other than your work-related responsibilities. Taking this time essentially helps you release mental pressure from a long workday.
- Improved decision-making: Relaxing after a long day at work can provide you with a renewed mindset for the next workday. When you return to work with a rational mind, it is easier to make important decisions.
- Better physical health: Relaxing can help you alleviate stress and reduce negative thoughts, which can ultimately prevent the possibility of health complications.
While there are several ways to unwind after work, it’s important to find what works best for you. Once you know what helps you can relax more and schedule time to engage in these activities after work.
TDHS wanted to give you an insight on how some of our staff live, work, and play – we’re calling it the TDHS Wellness Club. It might give you an idea on finding your own wellness.
