When you're busy leading a team and focused on driving success and growth, it's easy to overlook the simple things — like how to take good care of YOU. From meditation to deep breathing to no-excuses sleep rules, read on to see how Salesforce global leaders prioritize their wellbeing.

 

1. Make Wellbeing part of your routine 

 

"The biggest key for me is consciousness and planning. Just like I plan out my days and weeks for work and family activities, I also put exercise in my calendar – if it's in my calendar as a priority, that means I won't let it slip. I also make an effort to be conscious of sleep and nutrition." - Chris Ciauri, EVP Commercial Business Unit, EMEA

“Exercise is part of my mission statement and values, so it's always front and center as a priority in my life. Tactically, I put exercise in my calendar so it's protected time.”- Paul Korpi, Sr. Director, Solution Engineering

 

2. Prioritize healthy sleeping habits

 

“I have an 8-hour minimum rule and set it like an appointment in my diary. I charge my devices in a separate room after 9:00 p.m. every night. I also bought an old-school alarm with a morning light and gentle wake up, which has made a remarkable difference.” - Diana Terry, VP, Solution Engineering, APAC

“A schedule is key for me to get the best possible sleep. I have an alarm that tells me it's time to get to bed – it goes off about 30 minutes prior to when I actually want to go to sleep. Then I do a 10-minute sleep meditation right before I hit the hay, which helps to calm my mind from all the chaos of the day. ” - Paul Korpi, Sr. Director, Solution Engineering

 

3. Commit to your fitness routine

 

“I carry workout gear wherever I go. I have rollup shoes and a jump rope that fit right in my briefcase. If I find a spare 30 minutes in the day, I go for a quick run or jump rope. This is a lifesaver on the road.” - Paul Korpi, Sr. Director, Solution Engineering

“I stay active by playing golf on the weekends. I also choose walking, instead of taking a taxi or train, when possible.” - Shigemiki Komori, SVP, Enterprise Sales, Japan

 

4. Eat healthy and stay balanced

 

“I follow a pretty simple diet. I avoid dairy, refined sugars, and grains, and get most of my protein from chicken and fish. The hardest times to eat well are when I'm on the road and eating out with clients. When I get into town, I hit the grocery store and stock up on healthy snacks, generally fruit and hardboiled eggs. I will snack before and after dinner so that I can keep it light when I'm out with the client.” - Paul Korpi, Sr. Director, Solution Engineering

“I stay balanced by eating lunch with our team members and employees as many times as possible, no matter how busy I am.” - Shigemiki Komori, SVP, Enterprise Sales, Japan

 

5. Minimize stress

 

“Exercise, walking, and deep breathing are my go-to's for keeping stress in check. Breathing is great; you can use it anytime during work, at a cafe or airport. Five to 10 deep breaths does wonders. I also like taking the subway to work, as I get about 20 minutes of walking in the morning and evenings. It's a nice way to unwind.” - Chris Ciauri, EVP Commercial Business Unit, EMEA

“I meditate every morning and exercise to keep my stress levels in check.” - Diana Terry, VP, Solution Engineering, APAC
