Thanksgiving is this week which means you get to spend time with family and, more importantly, you get to eat delicious home cooked dishes. Although, when you come back to work next week it might be difficult to get back to your regular diet. Working in an office can be restrictive on you would normally eat or stay active, but it doesn’t have to be. Luckily, there a few simple ways to stay healthy while working in an office.
Don’t Forget To Eat
Sometimes people tend to forget to eat at work if they are constantly busy with assignments and tasks. It is critical not to only eat while at work but to eat well and choose foods that will give you energy throughout the day. It all starts by eating a well-balanced breakfast before or when you first come into work. Eating breakfast starts off your day well and allows you to make healthy food decisions. Make sure to stay hydrated with water and to avoid sugary drinks and snacks because they will make you crash in the middle of the day.
Standing Is Key
Most people sit at their desk while they are at work, but it is detrimental to their health in the long run. Sitting for long periods of time can cause negative health effects such as cardiovascular issues and back pain. It is important to try to get up and stand throughout the day to break up long periods of sitting. You should look into investing in a standing desk at work which can improve your overall health and wellness.
If you choose to sit at your desk for the majority of the day, you should at least invest in ergonomic furniture. An ergonomic chair is great for back support and allows you to be at a reasonable distance from your desk. If you have ever suffered from back or joint pain, then you should look into ergonomic furniture.
