It can be hard maintaining a healthy lifestyle while working. Here at The Wilson Group, we believe a healthy person leads to a healthy career. In order to help you kickstart your office health plan, we have provided these simple tips!
Start your day right
The course of your day is set right when you wake up in the morning. In order to lead a more productive and less stressful professional life, it is important to maintain a morning routine. Spending a few minutes in silence, whether through meditation, journaling, or drinking a cup of coffee, is key in releasing stress before the day starts. After doing this, eat a healthy breakfast (perhaps with a big cup of coffee) and you will be on your way to a healthier day at the office!
Snacking at the office can be a challenging habit to break! With all of the treats that get brought in on a daily basis, it can be hard not to indulge. In order to steer clear of these temptations, pack a healthy snack before heading to the office. If you have a snack like carrots & hummus, or apples & peanut butter sitting by your desk, it will be easier to say no to the heavy snacking!
Get Up and Move
Most jobs require sitting a desk all day, and with that it can be hard to reach those 18,000 steps we’re prescribed each day. To help get closer to that goal, try setting a timer for each hour as a reminder to get up and take a walk around the office or down the block. Also, remember to try and schedule in time for exercise outside of the working hours. Just 10 minutes of exercise can increase productivity and lead to a happier and healthier lifestyle!
