Are You Healthy At Work?

** In Collaboration** 

The idea of health is so interesting. It’s something that is so important in our lives, but it’s also incredibly unique. When it comes to health, despite there being very generalized suggestions in the world, there is no one-size fits all approach. If you want to be healthy, and you want to feel your best, you need to find a rhythm that will work best for you. And this should be across every area of your life. It won’t be all that effective for you if you are trying to be healthy at home, but then you’re not healthy at work. Because you spend such a long time working, this is the area that you might like to focus on the most. So let’s take a look at how you can do this.


Taking Breaks
First of all, you absolutely have to make sure that you’re taking breaks. If you are staring at a screen all day AND sat down for hours on end, this is not good for your health. It’s only ever going to hurt your body. So you need to make sure that you’re giving your eyes a rest. And not only that, but you are letting your legs move around a little too. At the very least, make sure that you’re going for a walk at lunchtime. But if you can, you might want to try and get up and move around throughout the day.
Sitting Correctly
Another thing that can largely affect your health is how you’re sitting. Do you find that you’re slumped in your chair? Is your back aching? Or your shoulders? This can all be because of how you’re sat at your desk. For this reason, you might like to make sure that you have a comfortable chair and that you’re being really conscious of how you’re sitting all day long.
Staying Active
Again, it’s important for you to make sure that you’re as active as you can be. You may even want to suggest different exercises, like, to do at work or to think about doing on your lunch break. The more active you are, and the more you can move your body and stretch your muscles, the better.
Eating Well
But you should also be thinking about what you’re eating at work too. If you’re eating junk and buying lunches every day, it will have an effect. Instead, consider ideas like to make and take with you. That way, you can keep yourself energized and healthy throughout the day.
Support & Socializing
But not only that, there’s your mental stimulation and social life to think about too. If you’re struggling with your workload, it will affect your happiness levels and load you with stress. And that’s not ideal at all. At the same time, if you don’t have ‘friends’ at work, you may feel lonely and isolated. So it’s about finding a balance with each of these areas to make sure that you are feeling fulfilled and healthy at work.
