TIPS TO MAINTAIN PROPER HEALTH -

1. RELAX AND TAKE REST TO REGAIN STRENGTH -

Its ok sometimes that not to take work much seriously and also not much with ease and to take some days off making plan for some fun like picnic, hill station or near a beach side and avoid going to pub, disco.

2. VIRTUES AND SINS -

Though caffeine and nicotine do help you to stay awake during long working hours but as it is said " Anything in excess is bad which results into a habit whether its smoking or even sweat ", so excess of anything is not good, you should take care of such habits.

3. BEST AND CLOSE FRIENDS -

If you don't have, do make and stay in contact with your friends, share your happiness and sorrows with them. They can be the biggest motivator for you in this world. As it is said " Loneliness leads to death ", don't allow yourself to stay alone.

4. BE FIT AND STAY HEALTHY -

To stay fit, you need to do regular exercise either by going to gym, walking or by playing some sports games. As call center job is sedentary, you should be physically fit too. Being physically fit enhances the confidence of a person and also increases the mental strength.

5. DRINK LOTS OF WATER -

On calls and during the duty, you speak a lot on phone which causes strain on the important part of your body which is throat and larynx. So to avoid this problem and to relax them, you are advised to drink lots of water and also some alcohol free fluids.

6. HEALTHY FOOD -

Oily, overcooked and greasy food will make you sleepy and also much inactive, you need a proper balanced diet to keep yourself awake, healthy and aware. Skipping meals and overeating is dangerous when your mind is on high alert. If you don't eat well cooked food, you will feel inactive, your listening and speaking capabilities will suffer. You will not sound loud and cheerful to customers.

7. A GOOD SLEEP IS REQUIRED -

Get a good and enough sleep. As doctors say " It is required for a person to sleep at least six to seven hours a day", it distress's you naturally. It also helps you to unwind, recharge you and your full body for the next night.

Working is good but joining or going for any new job or work after two days of joy and fun helps you to stay fit and make's you feel good in the beginning of your job.
