Companies that downsized during the recession left individual employees with unreasonable workloads. Although business travel and conferences can be a welcome escape from office chaos, they may seem to remove the 'OFF' button on a work-life schedule.
Tempted to take a bite out of your smartphone? Here are some tips to balance your professional and personal lives on your business trip to Sacramento, California:
- Better manage transitions between your work and personal lives. Awake a bit earlier and take a quick lap around the California State Capitol Park, while you set the tone for the day.
- Eat healthy. It's easy to get a daily recommendation of five fruits and vegetables at most downtown Sacramento dining options. Of course, you could take vitamins -- but they will neither be tasty nor well-presented.
- Exercise three times a week. The Sacramento Convention Center is conveniently located to several free things to see and do. Walk westward to Old Sacramento or bicycle eastward to Midtown and its Victorian houses.
- Relax before bedtime. Two hours before bed, shut down your fluid intake. One hour before bed, cool & darken your bedroom to prepare your body for deep sleep.
