How to Keep Your Health at Bay

There are a lot of studies lately that show most of the people who work in a call center tend to suffer from lifestyle diseases, and some even claim that those who work in the call center are the ones who would die early. Well, as scary as it may seem, there might be a little truth behind it, the way call center agents tend to live their life while in the BPO. Graveyard shifts cause lack of sleep, irate customers cause stress, excessive smoking and drinking tend to keep stress at bay and working in the wee hours force them to eat as much fast food as possible – clearly, these practices are not healthy. If you want to be a part of this dynamic industry but still want to keep your health at bay, here are a few tips.

1) Get enough sleep. Being in the graveyard shift is no excuse for you not to be able to get the rest you need. Your body clock would eventually adjust to your normal working hours. Set you room to be conducive enough to sleep in during the day, and make sure to put curtains or drapes. Also, talk to your family members about your sleep routine.

2) Bring packed lunch. As much as possible, bring your own food to avoid eating fast food and meals from convenience stores. Keep in mind that what you eat will certainly affect your health.

3) Drink lots of water. This is very important, not only because your job is to talk over the phone for your entire shift. Water is good to lubricate your throat from hours of talking.

4) Avoid the smoking areas. If you are thinking of smoking, don’t. If you are already an excessive smoker, then maybe it’s time for you to reconsider your stress buster. You are working in an air conditioned environment in the middle of the night, add the artificial light radiation which can certainly affect your lungs. Lessening or totally quitting from smoking is a huge step towards the healthier you.
