Try these healthy work habits for a better you

If you’re locked on to your screen, eating at your desk and drinking too much, you need to take control of your work habits – and get your life back

 

However within this relatively privileged realm, work can still be detrimental to your health. Too many people are spending too much time in front of a screen, getting caught up in back-to-back meetings, eating lunch on the hop, if at all, sitting for hours at a desk, worrying about work at night, consuming too much caffeine, and winding down from the whole thing with a few drinks too many.

Here are the few takeaways to stay healthy at work:

  1. Stand up. Sitting is the new smoking. When I work, I always stand up. I found it better than sitting down for a long period. You can try a Pomodoro technique: 25 minute work, 5 minute break.
  2. Use the stairs instead of elevators; provided you’re not working in a skyscraper.
  3. Take some time off from your computer screen. Too much exposure can strain your eyes.
  4. Regulate your caffeine intake. This Asap Science video explains the effects of caffeine. Coffee affects your sleeping habits and dehydration.
  5. Drink water to fight dehydration.
