Healthy Habits in the workplace

Healthy Habits in the workplace

We are quickly becoming more aware and more concerned with our overall wellness, and more so motivated to make positive changes. While a greater emphasis on healthy living has risen - the 9 to 5 has become 9 to 6, or even later. We spend more time working and less time leaving our desks, especially in companies where even lunch is brought to the office. Through the chaos, we struggle to find a balance between work and health, with the latter often slipping to the back-burner. So Since none of us are working any less, why not make the way you work a bit healthier?

Think about how you are working. Stop what you're doing and take a look at how you are sitting. Are your shoulders rolled forward, legs crossed, head down? Pull your shoulders back, sit up straight and open up your chest. Uncross your legs and plant both feet on the ground. Sit tall, with your eyes level to your computer. If your company allows it, make the switch to a standing desk! Alternate between standing and sitting throughout the day.  

Add some movement into your working hours. We all know the old "take the stairs instead of the escalator" but there are all sorts of ways to move. Long conference call scheduled? Use a headset or put the phone on speaker and walk around the room. Stand up every now and then do a few stretches or take a quick walk around the office.

Pack a snack instead of digging into the company biscuit tin or filling yourself with office birthday cakes and pizza lunches, bring a healthy snack in to work with you. Keep protein packed snacks at your desk like nuts and yogurt to keep you filled throughout the day and to avoid feeling overly hungry - which leads to overeating and none of us want that!

Take a break. Be sure to never over work or exhaust yourself. Take a brain break from time to time, look away from your computer to give your eyes a rest, stretch, take a quick walk outside for some fresh air. Take your full lunch break, away from your desk, to tackle the afternoon feeling refreshed and re-energized which means you can carry on your day being.
