Real Estate Pros: Tips For Staying Healthy This Fall

It’s that time of year when everyone seems to come down with something. Unless real estate industry professionals act to take care of themselves and their teams the toll can be outrageous.

The CDC has warned of an early start to flu season this year with some severe cases striking in even warmer climates like L.A. This year there seem to be even more health risks with Oakland County, MI residents reporting that their ‘smart’ electric meters are making them seriously ill, and Apple users are even reporting that their iPhones with iOS7 are making them sick.

Even just a couple of days down can have a huge negative impact on Michigan real estate businesses and independent professionals. From missing out on deals to letting down clients the risks aren’t just limited to coming up a few dollars short before the holidays but seeing reputation suffer and seeing businesses completely derailed.

So how can MI real estate pros prevent this?

It starts with being proactive. Keep your immune system rock solid by taking in safe sun, getting regular exercise, eating right, taking vitamins and avoid overdoing it. Vaccination can be a smart move for some too. In fact, when it comes to the flu, getting a shot isn’t just for old people, it has been recommended for everyone over 6 months old.

Many put off seeing a doctor or taking anything in order to let their body do its job of fighting back. However, it’s important to recognize the point when your body isn’t fighting it fast enough alone and medicate or get help.

Don’t make your employees work sick or go into the office sick yourself or everyone can go down. Instead actively discourage them from coming in. Today there isn’t much that can’t be done from home if you really want to push that hard.

Of course despite best efforts most Michigan real estate professionals will come down with something for a few days this fall.
