Holistic Health: How to Increase Workplace Productivity

If you’ve read our Q&A with Psychologist Dr. Jack Muskat, you already know how common it is for people to feel burnt out and exhausted at work.

To help you explore new strategies for boosting your workplace productivity, our team weighs in with some tips:

  1. Kandiss Fernando, Acupuncturist and TCM Practitioner: “Boosting productivity at work starts long before we get into the office in the morning. Our bodies need a full sleep cycle and REM state to rest, recuperate and regenerate for the day ahead. A simple way to start the process of balancing our circadian rhythm is to make it a priority to take time throughout the day to enjoy our outdoor spaces by taking regular breaks and going for walks. If these simple measures still aren’t helping, acupuncture can help quiet the mind if excessive mental activity is contributing to sleepless or restless nights.”
  2. John Gonzalez, Physiotherapist: “Even when you can’t take a break during the day to get away from your desk, it’s important to keep your body moving. Vary your position at your desk by moving and shifting your body in your chair. And don’t forget about posture. There’s a reason as children we were told to sit up straight – it distributes the pressures more equally through the spine, preventing an overload in one area.”
  3. Dr. Tamarah Chaddah, Naturopath: Intravenous therapy is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to get a much needed ‘pick me up.’ By administering vitamins through an intravenous drip directly into the blood stream, taking your vitamins has never been easier. Given that work place wellness is so important, our team at Simcoe Place Health Clinic have designed an infusion that contains powerful anti-oxidants that help to reduce stress, and a high dose of B vitamins to increase energy and improve focus.” Learn more here.
