6 Tips for Using Wellness Products to Improve Job Performance

Wellness products are formulated to help you stay at optimum mental and physical health. Simple actions, such as getting some exercise each day, are a good start. The tips below will help you be known as a very reliable employee who stays focused and aware on the job.

1. Stay Focused

A daily dose of B vitamins and magnesium may give you an edge on the job. These supplements are known to promote an alert and aware brain. Rather than relying on the roller coaster of caffeine, develop a regular supplement routine to keep your brain sharp.

2. Manage Pain Effectively

If your job involves a great deal of physical labor, start your day with a stretching routine. End it with a warm bath that includes essential oils such as eucalyptus. Steaming in a hot tub will loosen sore muscles and the eucalyptus will open up your breathing passages so you can go to bed fully oxygenated and ready for the next workday.

3. Handle Work Stress

Your job might be stressful because of your industry, your co-workers, your boss, or all three. Invest in a tube of lavender-scented lotion or lavender hand sanitizer. When you feel stressed, put this product on your hands and cup your hands over your face. Lavender offers clarity to an over-taxed brain. If you also get into the habit of meditating with a lavender candle near you, you can approximate a meditative state each time you smell this product.

4. Stay Mindful

If you find that your mornings are much more productive but your co-workers avoid you, the problem could be caffeine. You will have an easier time staying mindful in the workplace without stimulants. Blueberries and blueberry extract may make it easier for you to relax into a more mindful state. If you’re able to caffeinate, shut your doo, and crank out a lot of work in short bursts, try to stay there until the edginess of caffeine wears down. You may be creating an aura of tension if caffeine makes you edgy.

5. Avoid Illness

Vitamin C supplements are hands-down the simplest way to protect yourself from illness. Get in a regular routine of Vitamin C dosing. If you used to have coffee at 10 a.m., switch to tea with fresh lemon. If you have been brown-bagging it to save money, make sure you have an orange with your sandwich. Drink a Vitamin C supplement instead of your afternoon soda.

6. Protect Your Sleep

If you struggle with insomnia, CBD oil against the gums at bedtime may make it easier to fall asleep. If you find that you wake up and can’t get back to sleep, try CBD gummies with a CBD tincture at bedtime. Stacking CBD extends the efficacy of the dosage. The CBD tincture makes it possible to drop off, then the gummies help you fall into a deeper sleep pattern. Both in combination can help you settle a brain full of work worries so you can fall, and stay, asleep.

Taking care of your health will both make your work life easier and hopefully protect you to the end of your natural days. Be aware that wellness products may take a little longer to work; a highly caffeinated energy drink may feel like you’ve powered up, but without focus and mindfulness, it won’t be effective in the long term.
