It can be pretty common for people who work a lot to get sick often. This is partly due to stress, which is closely related to just about every illness. Another contributor to sickness is the fact that many people who work a lot are very sedentary at their jobs, making them lack physical activity that would strengthen the immune system, reduce stress and give them a better overall sense of wellness. Well, luckily there simple handy things we can do each day to help keep us healthy.
1. Move Around
Make sure to incorporate some type of movement into your daily routine. Whether this be walking at lunch time, going to the gym, or doing some exercises at home, make sure you are being active to help keep your immunities up. Also try to get in five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Not only will this help to keep you healthy, it will also help you to feel more alert and motivated at work.
2. Avoid Fad Diets
Going on fad diets can stress you out more than they can benefit your health because these diets can set you up to be a perfectionist and freak yourself out if you go off course. Who needs more stress on top of their workload? Fad diets also tend to be unhealthy because they can cut out whole food groups and deprive the body of essential nutrients.
3. Make Healthy Food More Accessible
Pre pack healthy meals and snacks for work, so you just have to grab your lunch and jet out the door in the morning. By doing this, you reduce the likelihood that you’ll eat at an unhealthy food joint by work. You can pack fruits and veggies for snacks and make meals that have protein, healthy fats and carbohydrates.
