Keep Your Office Healthy

It can be hard maintaining a healthy lifestyle while working. Here at The Wilson Group, we believe a healthy person leads to a healthy career. In order to help you kickstart your office health plan, we have provided these simple tips!


Start your day right

The course of your day is set right when you wake up in the morning. In order to lead a more productive and less stressful professional life, it is important to maintain a morning routine. Spending a few minutes in silence, whether through meditation, journaling, or drinking a cup of coffee, is key in releasing stress before the day starts. After doing this, eat a healthy breakfast (perhaps with a big cup of coffee) and you will be on your way to a healthier day at the office!


Pack light

Snacking at the office can be a challenging habit to break! With all of the treats that get brought in on a daily basis, it can be hard not to indulge. In order to steer clear of these temptations, pack a healthy snack before heading to the office. If you have a snack like carrots & hummus, or apples & peanut butter sitting by your desk, it will be easier to say no to the heavy snacking!


Get Up and Move

Most jobs require sitting a desk all day, and with that it can be hard to reach those 18,000 steps we’re prescribed each day. To help get closer to that goal, try setting a timer for each hour as a reminder to get up and take a walk around the office or down the block. Also, remember to try and schedule in time for exercise outside of the working hours. Just 10 minutes of exercise can increase productivity and lead to a happier and healthier lifestyle!

National Stress Awareness Month

April is National Stress Awareness Month, and it comes as no surprise that job searches are definitely stressful. Being stressed is never fun and can even lead to negative health consequences so we want to help you take the stress out of your employment hunt. Read on to see our tips for de-stressing your job search!


Clean Up Your Resume

Being confident in your resume can take unneeded worry out of the equation. Taking time to organize and remove clutter from your resume can be a great way to destress from your job search. A clean and logically ordered resume is easiest for employers to read and understand. Instead of paragraphs, use bullet points and simplify your word choices for increased readability. List your past employment in order from most recent to less recent and remove any extraneous details that may cloud the overall message of your resume.


Take the Stress Out of Your Interview


Nervous for a big interview? Try listening to some pump up jams on your way there to take your mind off the impending meeting. Get there early, take a deep breath, and review the material you brought with you.


Take the Day Off


Turn off your computer and put down the employment classifieds. Spend the day relaxing, trying a new restaurant, hanging with friends, or reading a good book. Think about everything but your job search.

Remember How Great You Actually Are


Searching for a job can be stressful. Are you the right fit for this job? Is this job right for you? It’s easy to get weighed down and frustrated when your job search isn’t as speedy or fruitful as you would like it to be. But don’t get disappointed. Take a moment to reflect upon the fact that you are qualified, talented and worthy of great employment.
