Balance July 2019 - 13

MANUAL
THE QUIZ

SOURCES psychreg.org,

MOSTLY D:
DO UP YOUR
HOME
Whether you're an owner
or renter, simple and
non-permanent updates to
your decor could make
you feel more settled in
your digs. Consider
adopting a house-plant,
which the Royal
Horticultural Society
say promote better
mood, reduce stress and
increase productivity
Try ... Finding your ideal
partner for your living
situation. If you're trying
to save money on
heating, a cactus or
succulent are happy to
grow in colder climates...

MOSTLY A:
FURTHERING
YOUR CAREER
Sounds like you're having
a great time socially, but
are constantly playing
catch-up in your career.
You're probably used to
winding down in the
summer, but you can use
this to your advantage.
Occupational psychologist
Matthew Buckley believes
you can't be productive if
you aren't having proper
down-time, explaining that
not setting a firm barrier
between work and play,
"diminishes productivity."
Of course, you need to
strike the right balance
Try... Logging off emails
when you're not at work,
and disconnecting from
the office. Separate
"work-time" and "playtime" and don't let one
merge into the other, if
only for the summer

MOSTLY B:
SEE MORE OF
THE WORLD
You've got itchy feet, so
Balance is prescribing a
dose of travel to leave you
feeling fulfilled. Columbia
Business School's Adam
Galinsky argues travelling
is a productive use of time,
suggesting "foreign
experiences increase
both cognitive flexibility
and the ability to make
deep connections"
Try ... Going somewhere
entirely new. It's easy to
go back to our favourite
places, but instead fully
immerse yourself in a
new culture. Whether it's
Oxford or Bali, you'll return
home feeling revitalised

MOSTLY C:
WORK ON
YOUR HEALTH
You may need to focus
on building the strongest
version of you, but it's
really not all about the
physical benefits.
Neuroscientist Wendy
Suzuki says as well as an
immediate boost in mood,
regular exercise will
provide "long-lasting
increases in those good
mood neurotransmitters"
Try ... Establishing a varied
exercise schedule, and
observing the impact it
has on your mood.
Summer is the easiest time
to get a healthy routine in
place, so by the time the
clocks go back, you'll be in
an ideal place to keep the
winter blues at bay

THE
R E S U LT S

MOSTLY E: BE
MORE SOCIAL
It's easy to get consumed
by work and become a
slave to the office.
Summer is time to focus
on tending to your
friendships, and making
memories with the ones
you love. Developmental
psychologist Susan Pinker
says "building in-person
interaction in our cities,
workplaces and agendas
bolsters the immune
system, sends feel-good
hormones surging through
the bloodstream and brain
and helps us live longer"
Try... Making just one
plan a week where the
focus is to have fun, and
make it non-negotiable.
Unchaining yourself
from your desk will leave
you feeling refreshed

40%
30%
Number of people who check
their work emails five times
a day outside office hours

Of employees who said they feel
empowered by having remote
access to their workplace
