Health Advice for Busy People at Work
Many people today find themselves being very busy with work that they often forget about their own health and well being.
If you are one of them, you must be feeling tired each night when you go home.
You may be thinking that working really hard is good, which is actually right, but you also need to ensure that you are in good health, so that you won't incur absences through ill health.
You have to be aware that working really hard without being conscious about your health can lead to a lot of stress, which could also lead to certain types of diseases.
Since you don't want that to happen, it is best that you check out with your health advisor on at least an annual or bi-annual basis just to keep an eye on you and body functions, (health in other words).
If you usually spend the whole day at work, there are certain things that you can do in order to become healthier.
First thing that you can focus on is the type of foods that you eat.
If you eat your lunch outside the office, then there is a big possibility that you eat in fast food outlets with your colleagues.
If you can't help but to do it this way, then what you can do is to become more conscious on the types of foods that you order.
Make sure that they are not oily or fatty. (Too many of the wrong fats are used).
As much as possible, you should also avoid processed foods, since these can be really unhealthy due to either the sugar or total fat content.
If you can designate time to prepare your packed lunch though, then that is the best thing to do.
For protein source, you can focus on lean meat, chicken without the skin, turkey, or fish.
Pair it up with a healthy source of carbohydrates like whole grains and such.
Do not forget to include a banana, lettuce, mango, or any type of fruits and vegetables, so that you will have a balanced diet.
Preparing your own lunch will not just ensure that you will be eating a healthy diet, but it will also help you in saving money.
On top of that, you no longer have to wait for your order to be served since you can eat your lunch whenever you need to.
Most if not all places of employment do now provide a kitchen or meal area with refrigerators and heating facilities such as a microwave or a stove of some kind.
If possible, store your all of your meals in a refrigerator, sandwiches, snacks, health drinks or your heat able meal, this is to stop any contamination that might happen due to warming of your food.
When you do this, there is a big possibility that your friends would follow your lead.
You can follow this in order to become healthier even when you are snowed under with your work load.
Keep in mind that you can also do some stretching and flexing whenever it is your break time, so that you can reduce the strains in your neck and arms after being in front of the computer for hours.
Whilst we are on the subject of your computer and your work station, it is totally recommended that you at least every hour to stand, stretch your legs, have a drink of water or coffee if needed.
This helps your body to recover from the lack of movement and also helps to revitalise your thinking capacity. (Clears the cobwebs).
