Keeping Healthy at Work

When you work in an office, or have to spend all day sitting still, you can easily slip into poor healthy habits. This could be lack of exercise, eating the wrong things, or a bit of both! There are things we can do to help us to remain healthy while at work.

The first thing to do each day at work is fill up a big bottle of water which you can drink from throughout the day. Drinking plenty of water helps to keep us hydrated, and ensures our brains get enough blood pumping round.

Get up every hour or so to have a walk around. If you can, try to have a stretch too, as we can easily end up stiff from sitting still for long periods. Why not practice some secret “desk exercise” moves, such as holding your abs in tight, squeezing your thigs or butt muscles.
