Simpson Financial Group  Preparing for life’s uncertainties

doctor and patient in officeIndividuals with desk jobs know how draining it can be to sit and stare at monitors all day. In fact, many people resort to munching on junk food and skipping workouts due to a lack of time. But there are plenty of things you can do in the workplace to support your health and wellness. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.

Eat Right

While the vending machine filled with candy bars and bags of chips may provide a nice occasional treat, regular snacking is best when you bring your own food from home. An afternoon snack of fruits, veggies with dip, nuts, low-fat yogurt or granola is a great choice to keep you satisfied while keeping your waistline down. Remember, snacking isn’t a bad thing as long as you make smart choices.

Get Exercise

Your job may entail a lot of sitting, but that doesn’t stop you from getting up to stretch every hour. You can also take a brief walk around the building once or twice each day, which helps ease stiff muscles and promotes healthy blood flow. For even more physical activity during the work day, you can take a longer walk or plan to exercise over your lunch break. This is especially true for workplaces with exercise facilities or those that offer discounted gym memberships.

Focus on Relaxation

Most people will admit to experiencing work-related stress, which can negatively affect your health. You may not be able to relieve that stress during work, but it’s important that you find ways to relax each morning and/or evening. What helps you relax? Warm baths, reading in candlelight or watching TV? Make time for a relaxing activity every day to help reduce stress.

Love Your Pets

Speaking about relaxation, did you know that contact with your pet can lower cortisol levels in your body? That means that snuggling with your pooch or kitty can actually reduce the effects of stress. Additionally, taking your dog for a walk gets you up and moving. So remember to give plenty of love and affection to your furry friends.
