Learn to think smart.

“I’m different from everyone else.” This belief lies deep in the hearts of most addicts. Believing that we’ve been wronged and viewing the world as a harsh, unfair place allows us to continue our destructive behaviours. And while addicts have faced a number of obstacles that others have not, we are more helpful to others and to ourselves if we choose to be thankful for all that we do have.

Follow your instincts

  1. Pace Yourself: Don’t go 1000 miles per hour. Take your time to do things. This might mean a few extra seconds between lifting crates or a few more minutes drafting emails. When you’ve had some time away, your body needs time to re-adjust to the demands workplaces on it.
  2. Keep an Eye on Your Manual Handling: Think about the way you do things. After time off, deconditioning takes hold and you may not have the strength or tolerance to do things the way you did previously. Manual handling ensures that you give your body the best chance of completing the task by placing you into the most biomechanically optimal position. Poor manual handling can lead to an increased risk of injury occurring. Correct and safe manual handling reduces the risk of joint decompression and strained muscles by getting your body to work safely and more efficiently.
  3. Take Regular Mini-Breaks: After some time off you might not be able to handle working for the duration of time that you had done before. Try utilising mini-breaks throughout your shifts by doing things such as taking an extra bathroom break, stretching or getting an extra glass of water. This will reduce the fatigue and the load on your body and allow you to complete your work tasks for longer.
  4. Make Postural Changes: Your best posture is your next posture. Our bodies generally don’t like staying in the one position for too long, whether it be sitting or standing. Try to move as much as possible. This may mean shifting around in your seat or splitting your stance whilst standing. Doing this will reduce the muscular fatigue within your body as by changing postures, you will effectively use different muscles that will share the load.
