How Setting Health Goals for 2023 Can Help With Your Career

When it comes to goal setting at work, you might be focused on ways to get ahead and earn that big promotion. However, are you also focused on your personal health?

If you’re feeling tired, unmotivated, or not energized, then it could impact your career potential and growth. It’s why focusing on setting health goals for the year ahead can benefit your career in a big way.

Another reason to focus on your health? If you’re not healthy in your personal life, getting to work will be harder. This can lead to increased absenteeism and missing out on important meetings or brainstorming sessions. Even if you are at work, if you’re getting chronic headaches, backaches, and feel lethargic, you’re not going to be as focused and productive as you need be.

It’s why healthy living goals can help you achieve you more success in your career in the year ahead. Here’s a look at 5 to adopt today and embrace in 2023.

  • Eating healthy. What you put into your body matters and if you’re eating a lot of sugar, packaged treats, and high fat foods, then your energy level will take a hit.
  • Drinking more water. Aim to drink a little more water each day, with the goal of getting to half your body weight into terms of ounces. For instance, if you weigh 150 pounds, aim to drink 75 fluid ounces of water each day.
  • Exercising. A little activity can go a long way in boosting your energy, mood, and motivation. Start off small, taking a walk around the block, then strive toward bigger goals, like running a 5k.
  • Sleeping more. Everyone needs around 8 hours of sleep to operate at their best; some a little more and others a little less. If you’re not getting this amount, it’s time for a change.
  • Limiting screen time. Keep your phone off once you’re getting ready for bed. Limit screen time in the evenings as well, since it can stimulate your brain and make it hard to get to sleep.
