The role daily choices play in affecting your wellbeing cannot be underestimated.
We all know a healthy work-life balance can help make you a healthier, happier person, but sometimes remembering to put the best laid plans into action is easier said than done. Thankfully, there are wellness professionals out there to offer advice on how to put yourself in the best position to succeed – whether that be in the office or outside of work.
One such individual is Leanne Spencer, the best-selling author, TEDx speaker, performance coach and founder of Bodyshot Performance. Leanne specializes in creating bespoke wellness programmes for time-poor men and women who are looking to commit to a lifestyle overhaul. A philosophy Firstbeat can buy into.
Recently, Leanne sat down to speak to Firstbeat Exercise Physiologist and Wellness Specialist Tiina Hoffman to exchange ideas, discuss theories within the industry and talk through Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment – the tool that uses heart-rate variability to help individuals or wellness professionals analyze well-being and performance during work, leisure and sleep.
Amongst the topics that came up were; recovery management (How can you fit recovery into your daily routine?), the question of how to manage stress (When is stress good or bad?), perfecting your work-life blend (Are you constantly glued to work emails?), incorporating physical activity into your daily routine (every little helps!), and the importance of sleep. To hear the full conversation, watch the 30-minute video below.
You can hear more from Leanne by joining us for her upcoming Firstbeat webinar ‘How to optimize your mind, body and performance through sleep’ on May 17.
