While working al desko is the reality for many of us, being in an office environment nine to five can make it tough to keep track of your health and fitness goals. If you’re feeling sluggish of late, read on for 10 ways — courtesy of MindBodyGreen.com — to stay healthy while working in an office…
1. Eat breakfast
This is a cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle. A wholesome breakfast can provide you with the energy you need to get through the first half of the day, and it will help prevent you from consuming junk food later on.
2. Cut out sugary snacks and sweets
Yes, they can be tasty, but they don't satisfy your true hunger and are digested quickly, leading to a rollercoaster of sugar highs and lows. Instead of grabbing a chocolate bar, bring snacks from home, such as baby carrots, nuts, hummus, cucumber slices, whole or sliced fresh fruit, small amounts of dried fruit, or savoury crackers. If you really can't survive a sleepy afternoon in the office, a piece of dark chocolate is fine.
3. Bring your own lunch
Shop-bought meals often include large portions and high-calorie choices. You can eat more healthily and spend much less money if you prepare your own lunch.
