Work hard, play hard! Sat, Jan 24, 2015
Everyone has interests outside of work, but did you know that it's actually good for your health to have a hobby?
According to Joyce Russell, director of the Executive Coaching and Leadership Development Program at the University of Maryland’s School of Business, research shows that people who have hobbies tend to be healthier, have lower risk of depression, and less chance of dementia. Also in her studies, many executives claimed that a sport or other routine weekend activity lowered blood pressure and reduced stress, allowing them to be more productive at work during the week.
Michael Brickey, author of “Defy Aging,” says that an ideal hobby would be one that serves three purposes: diversion (escape from daily stresses), passion (something you love) and creating a sense of purpose for yourself and others.
Give yourself a break from the daily grind. Be sure to do something that you love now and then (besides working at SlideBelts, of course...)
Work hard, play hard, and have a great weekend!
