10. Putting work first
If you aren't healthy, you can't take care of your family, you won't be there for your colleagues and work performance plummets. You should always take care of yourself and your physical, emotional and mental health first, especially if you are dealing with chronic health issues, Stringer says.
"Make your health a priority, and build time into your calendar to work out, to relax or do something that gives you energy and sparks your personal passion. Healthy workers are more productive; another obvious benefit to the bottom line is the avoidance of health care costs. But companies that make investments in employee health and well-being also see increases in engagement, productivity and growth. It's time to get our priorities straight and make worker health and well-being a foundation for good business," Stringer says.
