Financial Year Top 4 Tips for Peak Performance
Learn the top 4 tips for peak performance leading into the race for the end of this financial year.
"Without your health, you are limited."
Exhausted executives and employees who have worked six months straight since Christmas are feeling the crunch as the end of financial year rolls in.
Melbourne Corporate Health expert, Ireene Siniakis said there are a few simple steps that can prevent work burnout and keep the energy levels up to meet end of financial year deadlines.
“Australians are working longer hours, taking more sick days and feeling more pressure than ever before,” said Miss Siniakis.
“In the short term executives feel that they can keep the pressure going, but inevitably this backfires,” she said.
“Instead of dealing with needs as they arise, respite is pushed aside until it reaches breaking point.”
“Ignoring the signs that health and quality of life are suffering doesn’t mean the problem goes away.”
Miss Siniakis provides the following tips for corporates and business owners who are feeling the end of year financial pressure.
· Stop and breathe: Then assess if the task/s actually need to be completed this financial year – what happens if it ticks over after July 1.
· Drink water: In the lead up to the new financial year more time than ever is spent in air-conditioned offices – this dehydrates major organs including the skin. Sipping water throughout the day also keeps you alert and focused.
· Walk it Out: When focused too long on a particular task you can experience ‘brain fog’. Even though June is the start of the cold winter months, lunchtime is a good time to stretch your legs, get some natural light and maximise the heat of the day.
· Limit the caffeine: As the tiredness takes over, the natural reaction is to reach for a coffee. Instead try to get an early night and call it a day at the office. There is still another three weeks until the end of financial year – pace yourself.
· Graze all day: Leaving healthy snacks such as nuts, carrots and fruit on your desk (within your vision), allows you to snack regularly and not have to waste time doing runs to the cafeteria for junk food.
Miss Siniakis said it’s hard to bring your best performance to work when your body is running on half empty.
“Peak performance is just not sustainable unless a holistic approach to work and life balance is looked at,” said Miss Siniakis.
