Top 7 Tips to Stay Healthy at Work

With constant lunch meetings, endless candy bowls, office potlucks, birthday celebrations, and long hours it’s easy to fall off track of your healthy lifestyle at work. With our top tips to stay healthy in the corporate world you’ll be able to get back on the wagon (and stay on) in no time!

 

Bring your own food

Go grocery shopping just for healthy work foods and bring food you can store at the office to whip up quick and healthy lunches. An easy solution to office lunch is to be sure to cook a little extra dinner the night before and pack the leftovers for the next day’s lunch. Always have healthy snacks ready for those hunger emergencies during late nights at the office or afternoon snack attack.

Bring a large reusable water bottle to refill

If you have water at your desk then you are more likely to drink it. Bring a large reusable water bottle that you can keep refilling with the filtered water provided at your work.

Take the stairs

If you usually take the elevator opt for the stairs for an easy and quick way to fit more exercise in to your day. If possible, make it a habit to use the restroom on a different floor and take the stairs to get there. Making this small change can be a great way to stay active throughout the day.

Keep moving

Along with your new habit of taking the stairs, keeping moving throughout the day can make working at a computer so much healthier. One way to ensure you’re not sitting too long is to set a timer per hour to remind you to get up and walk around for at least five minutes. It can be a great physical break from sitting and a mental refresher to keep you productive throughout your day.

Go on walks

Bring some comfortable shoes to change in to and use your lunch break to move by taking a walk. A great way to make this a productive activity is to plan a “walking meeting” with your team where you can encourage your colleges to get some exercise and out of the office.

Set goals to stay on track

How long can you go without falling victim to the office candy bowl? How many glasses of water do you need to drink in a day? Making rules for yourself to follow throughout your day can help you stay on track of your healthy goals at work. Give yourself a daily water intake goal. See if you can go one day, one week, or longer without taking candy out of the office candy jar. Start small and work your way up to larger, harder goals.

It’s okay to say no

If you work in an office you know food can present an opportunity for office bonding. Master politely rejecting unhealthy food offered to you. After a while it will become very natural to you and your colleges will get used to bonding with you in other ways.
