The average person spends about a third of their day at work, so it’s important that healthy habits extend to the workplace too. After all, healthy habits can lead to healthier, happier and more productive employees! Here are three healthy habits to start in the workplace now.
When mid-day hunger strikes at work, it’s easy to reach for the closest thing to munch on. But if the closest thing is a candy bar or bag of chips, you’re not going to feel or look your best. One of the healthiest habits to start in the workplace is snacking smart. Smart snacking can help you avoid the inevitable crash following a less-than-healthy snack, meaning you’ll be more alert and productive as a result. Smart snacking doesn’t have to be bland or boring either. Try keeping nuts, veggies and hummus, or even dark chocolate at your desk.
Practice Good Posture
For many, sitting is an inevitable part of their job. What’s not inevitable though, is bad posture! When sitting correctly, the skeleton is designed to support the body and hold it up. Unfortunately, many individuals don’t sit correctly, which can cause stress and pain throughout the body. Practicing good posture comes down to pelvic support. Your pelvis is the base of your skeleton and the main source of support, which means it is the area you should be using to support your body. To do this, place both feet evenly on the ground and sit up straight while gently rolling your shoulders back.
Walk It Out
If you can, try utilizing you break to go for a quick walk outside or around the office. This small effort can improve your health and give you the burst of energy you need to make it through the day instead of pouring that third cup of coffee. Try to encourage others to get moving too and take walks together—the more the merrier, right?
