Don’t let your work over run your life. The familiar habit of letting your “to do” list expand beyond your control can cause unnecessary stress to spill over into your personal life. This can begin to impact your relationships, your concentration, and your health.
When stressed out at office, people are often hit by a “fight or flight” response to problems. Heart rate and blood pressure shoot up and senses become overwhelmed. It can be a scary feeling and to be avoided for sanities sake as this work induced stress can lead to panic and anxiety attacks.
1. Take a break every 30 minutes
Working full days behind a desk is very taxing on your body, both physically and mentally.
The best thing you can do to stay healthy is to take a break at least once an hour, but preferably every 30 minutes.
Stand up, stretch, and roll your eyes around even if it’s just for a few minutes.
2. Eat Healthy
Another downside to an office job is the lack of movement and the lack of being able to prepare healthy meals. This often results in you eating unhealthy fast foods, coffees and snacks.
If you really want to stay healthy, avoid coffee and sugary drinks as much as possible. Drink water.
3. Make the office more relaxing
Plants a great way to create a more natural working environment and if you are in a serviced office you won’t have to worry about watering them!
