A Hard Thing to Admit: Your Work Could be Making You Sick

February 28, 2019

We glorify Entrepreneurship big time these days.

Our entire teenage and young adult life is geared towards landing That Dream Job and being the fearless #Boss of your very own bizniz. And then what?

Here’s what’s not aspirational: a stress-driven chronic disease.

Work/Life Balance is just another phrase we all throw around like a hot potato. Up there with “moon-gazing”, “morning ritual” or “me time” – it’s just one more abstract-sounding formal term used to describe a very obvious, primal human need.

How do you actively separate your job from your life? Have you even thought about how to distinguish labor from leisure? And why play is as important as work, for the success of your business.

In true Parsley style, we’re on the hunt for fresh, actionable, practical tips to be even better versions of ourselves.

Here’s how our badass balanced boss and the Parsley coaches separate work from play:

Jackie D – smileaholic, salmon salad meastro, Thrive Market-enthusiast, newly-fiance’d

In a time where it’s too easy to be accessible 24/7, I create rules for myself in order to maintain work/life balance. My main rule comes into play at night: after cooking and eating dinner, I don’t allow myself to go on work email, instead I use that time to unwind from the day – which may look like – reading, watching a movie, relaxing and catching-up with my fiancé. Of course, every now and then I may need to address something, but by generally following this rule, I allow myself precious time to detach and restore, which helps me feel my best.

Miss Blair – puts the hop in Badenhop, was a tulip in her previous life, has red lips that don’t sip coffee.

I take multiple mini-breaks to breathe, stretch, or take a walk around the block. Sometimes I put on music and dance for 5 minutes too! I also have a rule that I stop working by 8pm so that I have time to transition into dinner time and put my computer/phone away.

Klara Mudge – never had a sweet tooth, always had a horsetail for hair; now addicted to Parsley’s Rebuild shake in vanilla, chocolate and sometimes a combination of both (with frozen cherries and a shot of espresso)

No work, email, or social media on Saturdays. This is harder than you can ever imagine and has required an auto-reply email that says “I’m not checking emails today please call my phone if you need to really, actually get my attention. And it better be to invite me to a party.
As a daily thing on weeknights I’m very into to epsom salt baths with all of the candles and a podcast on stereo (Monocycle by Leandra Medine has been the latest fave)”

The world’s best Doc: Robin Berzin, MD. Self-professed macchiato junkie, legal parent of #wallisthedog and true-blue guardian of Janis Joplin (the Parsley office Fig Tree)

With a busy schedule that borders on the insane – seeing patients, running a startup, speaking at events, and frequent travel – it’s too easy to let my workouts slide and yoga classes bite the dust. So, I schedule exercise for myself in my Google calendar like any other meeting so that it can’t get booked over, blocked, or fall off the day’s schedule. I also walk my pup Wallis every morning to get my macchiato without any phone iWatch or electronics in tow and make it a walking meditation free from distraction. It’s my time to start my day with calm and quiet before the craziness begins.
