Some Interesting Forwards

I keep getting a lot of forwards from my friends and colleagues.. few I laugh at, few I cry at, few I enjoy, few I like, and a few I like verry verry much and which I flag and store in the mailbox.

Got a couple of them today and wanted to share with my blogger friends :-).

Certain simple techniques to cope with our increasingly demanding work-styles.

Try not to use the intercom. Rather, walk to your colleagues and discuss matters.
Stretches your back, and leg muscles. Helps build rapport with colleagues. Relaxes your eyes and ears. Relaxes your neck.

Drink lots of water / liquids.
Will require you to walk to the rest room regularly. Good stress buster.

Small meals at regular intervals
Keeps away acidity. Makes you walk to the cafeteria thus providing exercise.

Laughter is the best medicine
Hard works is good, but let us not lose our sense of humour. Learn to laugh for everything. Stress buster, good for face muscles and eyes. Sharpens thinking capabilities. Mainly, laughter is contagious
.

20, 20, 20, 20 rule - Every 20 minutes, look at an object at least 20 meters away for at least 20 seconds. After that blink your eyes 20 times before you resume on the computer
Good for eyes, neck, back. You get to chose what object you want to look at!
Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground
Good for back, neck and leg muscles. Keeps Ego in check!

Use an external mouse ( Laptop users). Rest you elbow where ever possible
Good for neck, back, arms, shoulders and wrist.

Ensure that you chair is adjusted to optimum height and the back-rest is adjusted to normal (rather than recline)
Good for back and neck

Use speaker-phones for long calls (calls for more than 20 minutes)
Less stressful and enables more movement of the body.

Get it off you . Talk to someone about anything that bothers you.
All of us have stress. It is how we manage it. Make friends in office to whom you can open your heart out. Honest discussions very often provide answers to difficult situations.

All of us spend 8 - 12 hours in office and we need to learn to enjoy these hours. Happy working.... & have a great day!...


HOW TO STAY YOUNG
1. Throw out nonessential numbers.
This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.
2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down. (keep this In mind if you are one of thosegrouches;)
3. Keep learning.
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain get idle."An idle mind is the devil's workshop."And the devil's name is Alzheim er's!
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud.
Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and Lots oftime with HIM/HER.
6. The tears happen.
Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entirelife, is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love.
Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health.
If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don't take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country,but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

Yep, to stay healthy we need to be happy to be happy we need to keep laughing. That's my secret of good health :)

By the way, when you use the mouse, actually, you are not supposed to rest any portion of the hand any where. That causes stress to the nerves. I know because I already have a mild Repetitive Stress Injury :(
