Lee Green’s 10 Tips For Staying Healthy At Work
For our first Wellness Wednesday we are going to begin with something fairly simple. Just by following a few simple guidelines, the overall effects can be felt almost immediately. None of these tips takes a great deal of effort, and that’s as it should be.
Fitting these into your daily routine should be a piece of cake. Well, not cake as it’s Wellness Wednesday. How about an apple? Fitting these into your daily routine should be a piece of apple. No, doesn’t have the same ring to it … but you catch my drift.
1. Drink lots of water
Drinking lots of water keeps you focused and fights off headaches. It also encourages clear skin and a freshly flushed digestive system!
2. Switch from coffee to green tea
Green tea carries lots of anti-oxidants which help to fight many things including the ageing process, heart disease and can even help you sleep.
3. Take the stairs
Now I appreciate that you don’t have much choice here, however, why not take 2 steps at a time. This will increase the heart rate and help to shape your legs … and butt!
4. Don’t call a colleague in the same building
If you have a quick question to ask a colleague, then go and see them. This is a great reason to be active and help toward your daily step count.
5. Walking meetings
If you have a planned meeting with a colleague or you need to iron out some ideas, instead of booking a meeting room go for a walk around the block.
6. Rest those eyes
I don’t mean going to sleep! However, closing your eyes for 30 seconds every hour is recommended for those who spend a long time looking at a screen.
