2. Develop (And Stick To) A Work Out Routine.

One of the best things business owners can do to boost their health is to develop a work out routine. Exercise has a wide range of important health benefits, including the improvement of memory and enhanced cognitive function. Unfortunately, many people start a work out routine but quit before they start to see real results. Don’t make this mistake. Instead, develop a routine that you really love and thereby increase the likelihood that you’ll actually want to do it. In many cases, it can be advantageous to attain an accountability partner. Studies indicate that people who have these partners are much more likely to stick to their exercise routine. Your accountability partner can be anyone from a walking buddy to a personal trainer.

3. Journal.

Being a business owner can be highly stressful. If you don’t find a venting mechanism that allows you to voice your frustrations and disappointments, you can become increasingly susceptible to sickness. To prevent this from happening, consider the value of keeping a journal. You can use the journal to “let it all out.” In addition to writing out fears and frustrations in your journal, you can also discuss your triumphs and success on the job and in your personal life. Many people who take this course of action say they feel much better!

Preventing The Possibility Of Being Sick At Work

There are some people who do not appreciate orderliness in the workplace. Even cleaning up their mess in the corner, they do not care.

When I get to work, I used to sanitize (with alcohol) the things we mostly used in the customer service department. Dusting and organizing the supplies or equipment in the working area keeps everything in order as well as clean I think. It is a habit of preventing the possibility of sickness, because working sick will not do good.

Patience, Self-Control, And Cheerful Attitude

Arggh!!! The customer service department was in heat late afternoon yesterday. A couple of unpleasant situation were encountered…by me. There was the “small scene” made by a guy associate. Then two customers were fussy about something.

The first one was fixing to make a payment for his credit card when he realized the billing statement was not on hand. So he called the credit services and spoke with somebody there. I guess he did not like what he was told so he was like whining about it and got to the point where our store manager spoke to him explaining the whole situation about his credit card. Perhaps he got tired of calling the credit services again, he decided to leave the store. The second customer was making a return for the pair of shoes she bought more that a week ago. Actually she already went to the shoe department but did not took her return because she did not want the gift card idea. Well, she has two merchandise in her receipt-a pair of shoes and a purse. She made two mode of payments…debit card and gift card. But she paid the higher amount item (purse) with a gift card. Our return procedure is, crediting the refund to the original tender of purchase and to the tender which paid the high amount on the receipt. So the only option we can give her was a gift card for the shoes return. She did not want that because she paid for it with her debit card.

Anyway, I asked the approval of a manager to transfer the gift card amount to her debit card, which she agreed to. After all the work and transaction copies were printed for both of us, she hysterically whined about the copies because she wants a register print receipt (journal receipt copy) for the transaction. I told her that this type of transaction will not go to the register because we are transferring the money from the gift card to her debit card. The system print out is the proof of the transfer transaction. The customer insisted. There was nothing I can do because it is not possible. So I called a manager to deal with her. Even the manager explained hard to the customer about the procedure. She did not accepted it but she took the print out and left.

There are different situations dealt in the workplace everyday. Working in customer service requires patience, self-control, and cheerful attitude. You have to be wise too. Sometimes, in situations mentioned above, you need to be calm. And that is what I am doing whenever I encounter customers with attitude.
