Cure These 4 Unhealthy Office Habits

Cure These 4 Unhealthy Office Habits


Forty hours on your feet or at a desk can take a toll on your body. Extra calories, dehydration, eyestrain and bacteria can attack both your health and your productivity.

Fight back with these four tips to stay healthy at work:

Sneaky Snacking. Candy and leftover holiday goodies will add extra fat and processed sugars to your diet and waistline. Partner up with another health conscious colleague and bring your own healthy snacks, to make sure you're eating healthier calories so you don't feel hungry between meals.

Eyes Crossed. Eyestrain can cause focusing issues, light sensitivity, chronic headaches and long-term damage to your eyes. Make sure you set your computer screen about an arm's length away. If you still find yourself squinting, try increasing the font size before putting on glasses.

Dehydration dangers. Not drinking enough water can lead to gastritis, poor digestion and heartburn, headaches, depression, weight gain, premature aging, and, over the long term, arthritis. Keep a water carafe or bottled water by your desk to stay hydrated at regular intervals. Set reminders on your phone to drink water if you must.

Keyboard cooties. Infectious germs can survive for hours to days on the hard surfaces of every working environment. Make sure to clean your keyboard, mouse and phone with disinfectant wipes, especially if you share these devices with others.
