Call Center Philippines: Healthy Living

July 24th, 2010

Healthy living on the call center floor
I will be discussing how a call center agent can be healthy.

We all know that most call center agents work at the wee hours of the day, and staying up late can be hard to used to. We should learn to adjust to our schedule and do what is appropriate to keep feeling healthy when working funky hours in the contact center. Wake up at a time that is appropriate for you to get ready for work and after shift do not stay up too late. Just make sure you schedule your sleep for 8 hours.

Secondly, the eating habits. Eat only nutritious foods. You do not have to deprive yourself of your cravings just make sure you are getting the right nutritional content with what you are eating. Learn to balance your eating habits. Eat a full meal one hour after you wake up and follow it up with small meals or snacks in between shifts. Eating a lot in between shifts is the most common factor for sleepiness. Eat fruits and vegetables. Eating healthy has always been the main point of it all.

Lastly, Exercise. We all know that prevention is better than cure, and exercise is the way to do it. Exercise, even just for a little while, every day after shift, run a few laps maybe or do some crunches before you go to sleep. In a way it helps your sleeping because it is easier to sleep when you are tired.

The main thing is to combine the three and whopaaa! You get to be healthy on the floor. It is both beneficial for the company and also for you. Since if you feel great then your work is great. But one thing is the most important in being healthy. One must have discipline and self respect for with out discipline no one can achieve his goal. Working at call center Philippines is not always easy but it can be if you are prepared.

Maintain discipline in everything that you do and for sure all you do will be successful. Respect yourself if you want to be successful.

    easy to say but hard to do… i have been in the industry for 5 years now but the normal sleep i get is only 5 to 6 hours. you make your night your day and your day to night but what about errands.. you need to do it during day time right? i guess working graveyard wouldn’t be normal well not for everyone… only thing i can agree is to eat a lot of nutritional foods to be healthy.

  3. Helpful tips but not easy to do. Doing the combination of the 3 tips is hardly possible for call center agents. Because some will spend most of their time sleeping rather than exercising or eating. But kudos to those who can really manage to have proper sleep, eating nutritional foods and exercise.
