Nowadays many experts talk about the importance of choosing a healthy lifestyle simply because the lifestyle people live today is often very unhealthy and they do not take a good care of themselves.

For many people, it is completely normal to smoke cigarettes, sleep less, eat processed and fast food.

But all of this can have a negative impact on your health, productivity, memory and ability to concentrate.

Let’s quickly go through some tips for a healthier lifestyle.

Breakfast

Breakfast is without a doubt the most important meal of the day.

A healthy breakfast will give you physical and mental energy that will keep you productive throughout the day.

It makes it easier to focus on all obligations, so in order to be more effective, eat a healthy and a hearty meal in the morning.

Water

Water is essential for every metabolic process in the body and should be taken regularly without an excuse.

Today there are thousands of applications you can install on your smartphone that will remind you to drink a glass of water.

So, if you feel that you have an insufficient intake of fluids in the body, this may be the right solution for you.

Being thirsty is not good because it shows that your body is not hydrated sufficiently. Therefore, do your best to drink water, even when you’re feeling particularly thirsty.

Sleeping

Going out at night can be very fun and exciting especially for the younger population, but there is no reason for exaggeration regardless of how young and vital you are.

Healthy sleep is essential for the body to function properly the next day, and it is necessary in order to make your day productive.

Chronic lack of sleep can cause weight gain by causing a negative impact on the processes of decomposition of carbohydrates, and by increasing the hormonal levels that determine our appetite.

Also, the lack of sleep affects your mood, increases the levels of anxiety and stress, and in addition, affects the memory because we remember information better after we sleep.

Exercising

You probably already know that exercising can bring many benefits to your health.

Did you know that morning is the best time to exercise?

Yes, soon after you get out of bed. Just a few minutes of intense exercising will be enough for a higher productivity throughout the day.

That is all you need, 15 minutes. You will be able to focus better and solve the problems/challenges you face.

Relaxation

If you have a sedentary job that involves spending 8 hours a day working on a computer, do not start your day with electronic devices.

Mornings should be a time for you and your thoughts (and exercise of course).

Watch the sunrise, drink tea in the fresh air and listen to the sounds of nature.

Although it will be difficult at the beginning, but you will realize that the morning is the best time of the day to relax.

Should You Still Dress For The Job You Want?

If you’re serious about landing your dream job, how you dress needs to be important to you.

Your clothing plays a bigger role than simply covering you up; it gives people information about you, whether it’s true or not.

People who dress sloppily can often seem careless or lazy, and people who are too casual aren’t always taken seriously.

However, dressing to impress your higher ups doesn’t always mean wearing an expensive suit. Dressing for the job you want requires you to gauge how your boss or manager is dressing.

If you work at a company where formal clothing is avoided or even rejected and even your managers show up in casual jackets, wearing a business suit might not be such a good idea.

Regardless of the preferred clothing style of your workplace, there are a lot of ways to make sure that you dress well and make a good impression.

If you work at a place where formal attire is the norm, wearing more expensive business clothes will go a long way.

The number one thing to remember when considering how to dress at work is that how you put yourself together directly indicates how you view your work. You want to give the message that you are serious about your work and dedicated and that you can lead a group to success.

Dressing for the job you want isn’t only necessary at your current workplace, but it’s also must for every job interview.

No matter what type of company you’re applying with, always do your best to dress appropriately and dress well when meeting with a potential employer. First impressions are more important than you might think, and showing your character and level of seriousness through your clothing just might get you the job.

Having said all of that, I should also mention that dressing for the job you want is only one small part of landing your dream job.

You need to take it a step further.

Here are a few more tips to help you get to that bigger office, or wherever you want to be:

1. Behave for the job you want.

Dressing for the job you want won’t fool anybody if you don’t play the part.

Show your dedication to your job through things such as getting to work early, always giving 110%, and making sure your team succeeds, not just you.

2. Stay focused

Stay focused on the goals your boss cares about instead of getting caught up in the work place drama.

Be observant of what you and your coworkers need, and be ready to offer solutions.

Show that you can be innovative and flexible.

3. Get Organized

Your work space speaks as much about you as your clothes do. Keep an organized, efficient work area at all times.

Take the extra time to de-clutter paperwork, organize your files, and throw out what you no longer need.

Dressing for the job you want isn’t an option – it’s a necessity. The way you need to dress for that specific job can vary depending on where you want to work, but your clothes must always reflect positive character traits.

My Big Career Change From The Corporate World To Online Freelancing

I always believed in the notion of succeeding most at your career when doing something that you are really passionate about which is why, a few years back, I decided to make the shift from the corporate world into online freelancing.

I can’t say that it was an easy ride, but it was definitely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life.

Below are a few reasons why:

I Earn More Money On Average

When I first started online freelancing, to be quite honest, I was earning peanuts but my salary was doubling in the first few months, something that would never happen in the corporate world.

Until now, my income is not doubling each month, but it sure is increasing at a rate that would never happen had I still been an employee doing something that I was not passionate about.

I Am My Own Boss

Being your own boss means working at your convenience including choosing when and where you work.

For me, this has always translated into more independence and piece of mind, which allows me to appreciate my work more.

I am a big travel junkie, so the ability to travel the world while working is something that I find to be a big advantage of being an online freelancer.

Online Freelancing Perfectly Fits My Personality

It’s been said that people should choose their jobs based on their personalities.

I am personally introverted which makes working online and not having to communicate much with other people (not face to face or over the phone much, at least) a big advantage.

It’s not that I don’t like other people, but rather I work better by myself and do not like to make a social effort during my working hours.

If you want to make a big career change in your life but are unsure of how to do it, consider talking to someone with similar experience, do a bit of research or find a life coach to help you mitigate the career transition.

If you want to be an entrepreneur for instance, talking to someone with similar experience – or who has made it into a successful entrepreneur can help you. Likewise, if you want to become an online freelancer, for instance, you can do some research on freelancing and the best online freelancing platforms to have an idea about the concept and how to go along doing it.

Finally, hiring a career coach is very popular nowadays. A career/life coach can help you navigate the obstacles that you will face when attempting to attain your career goals.
