Drug and alcohol testing has become the industry norm in most corporations because of how often people abuse drugs or alcohol. It is as simple as that. This abuse springs from an inability to handle life’s every day little stresses. Here are some tips for you, so that you don’t end up on the wrong end of a workplace drug test:
Read a little every day. Studies have shown that reading autobiographies and biographies about people whom you admire are especially helpful. Research has shown that real life accounts are more valuable and raise your energy level far better than fictional reading.
Get some sunshine every day. Drug and alcohol testing is less needed in jobs where employees receive plenty of fresh air and sunshine. You don’t have to risk sunburn or anything as drastic as that. A minimum of twenty minutes a day will do the trick.
Interact with your community. Studies have shown that people need less drug and alcohol testing when they receive positive interactions with their community and family. Community builds a support system where the individual feels loved and accepted by their peers. This is essential in lowering stress.
Enjoy your job. Number one reason for workplace drug testing? Dissatisfaction with your job. Make sure that you are receiving the income and autonomy which you need in order to feel important in your work. Also, remember to only apply for jobs which you would love spending the next five years in.
Get a little alone time. In our hectic schedules, it is difficult to find peace when you do not make time for yourself. Stop off at a coffee shop on your way home from the office, stretch out on a blanket at the park, or stare up at the stars from your back yard. You will be better able to maintain a drug free workplace when you show value for yourself.
