Celebrating World Health Day: Making Time For Yourself & Your Health

Celebrating World Health Day: Making Time For Yourself & Your Health

April 7th is World Health Day! This year’s theme, ‘My Health, My Right’ emphasizes the essential need for everyone, everywhere, to have access to health services and resources. World Health Day not only celebrates global health, but also applauds the dedicated professionals in our healthcare industries and raises awareness about the holistic well-being of all individuals, including their mental, physical, and emotional health.  

At Masis Staffing Solutions, we want to remind employers and employees alike to prioritize your own physical and mental health today and every day. As you think about the significance of World Health Day, it is crucial to recognize the importance of making time for your personal well-being amidst the demands of a busy work and social life. Here are some ways to achieve this:

Keep Up on Appointments: In order to ensure that your physical health is in check, be diligent about scheduling yearly physicals and other doctor visits. Often, you can make your next appointment at the end of your current one, so you don’t have to worry about calling or scheduling at a later date. 

Additionally, avoid letting too much time pass between appointments. Prioritize yourself and your health, set reminders on your computer, phone, or in a daily planner to attend and schedule doctor visits.

Invest in Your Physical Health: Exercising can allow us to relieve stress, build muscle, and just feel better about ourselves. Making time for physical activities can better your physical health and better your mind in the process. Consider investing in your physical health by purchasing a gym membership, workout equipment, or taking an hour out of each day to go for a walk or bike ride outside.

Prioritize a Work-Life Balance: Life can get overwhelming, and we often feel pulled in many directions. Prioritizing a work-life balance will allow you to reach your personal and professional goals at the same time, instead of having to put one above the other. 

Ways in which you can begin prioritizing a work-life balance include:

  • Delegating tasks when you feel you’ve taken on too much
  • Making daily lists of your goals and intentions
  • Staying organized both at work and at home
  • Taking time to connect with friends and family
  • Finding time to pursue your own hobbies and interests

Practice Self-Care: Mental health is every bit as important as physical health. By practicing self-care, you’re investing in your mental well-being and prioritizing other aspects of your health.

One way to practice self-care is by reducing the time spent on your phone or in front of screens, and instead connecting with others through experiences. Other self-care methods may include balancing tasks to avoid feeling overwhelmed, taking lots of necessary breaks, doing activities that make you feel good, seeking support from a therapist or mental health professional, and incorporating activities like yoga or meditation into your routine.
