A breathe of fresh air. Strengthen your lungs.

As more pollution circulates in the air, more and more people are concerned with the quality of the air they breathe, and with good reason. It has been shown that even nonsmokers who live in high air pollution areas suffer with the same kind of symptoms that smokers do. A phenomenon known as secondary smoking.

The pollution in the air decreases the amount of oxygen that can actually get circulated in the blood. A prevalent ingredient in polluted air, carbon monoxide, actually binds with the oxygen in the blood, making it ineffective.

So what can we do?

  1. Exercise: Exercise strengthens the lungs and provides the system with more oxygen. During exercise, the lungs are trained to breathe more deeply while we increase their ability to expand.
  2. Good posture: Shallow breathing is often due to tight fitting clothes and poor posture. This causes blood to become impure because there is less oxygen for the system. Consequently, we become depressed, our concentration is lessened, and our digestion disrupted.
  3. Drink enough water: Water is essential for good respiration. The lungs are 75 percent water and we lose at least one pint of water in our exhaled breath each day.
  4. Air purifier: For those who drive daily in heavy traffic, a portable air purifier in your car would certainly be of great benefit. There are also purifying units for the home
  5. Water filter: It is a good idea to get water filter to purify the water that we drink especially in more polluted areas.

Mind your language – Develop the perfect communication skills.

Speaking is expected of virtually all of us whether we are managers or not. Often that means in formal business English and more often today in other languages as well. Employers will be assessing you on grammar, vocabulary size and use, and how effective you deliver your ideas.

You may think that your job role does not require speaking, perhaps thinking that your field does not require great oration, think again. Even in heavy content science areas like engineering, accounting and computer science, employers look for the employees who can present the ideas, influence clients, and communicate well in a team.

It is likely that speaking will not be the focus of your job, but it will be a factor in promotion and opportunity. If you are in a lab, the person who speaks for your team will be seen as the leader. In a clinical situation, clear instructions will be imperative for patient understanding and healthy behavior.

Attend courses on communication skills, if you are working on an accent perhaps you have a thick local accent, you might benefit from a speech coach. Some employers are looking for very precise speech. Stretch yourself by volunteering to represent your group whatever it might be. Employers will be paying attention to these experiences when you apply. Employers will be listening to see if you adjust your language usage to the situation and audience. Having just the skills of your discipline is never enough.
