Are you tired during your work? Is the health in your workplace among your team or employees not perfect? Here are our best tips for better workplace health.
1. Minimum of 7 hours of sleep each night
When we do not sleep enough, neither the body nor the brain receives the recovery needed for us to be alert and to perform to the best of our ability. By going to bed and waking up at about the same time each day, we increase our chances of effective uninterrupted sleep.
2. Lunch box or fruit
Bring your lunch box or fruit to ensure a consistent energy level throughout the workday.
With regular snacks in the form of a packed lunch box or fruit, we can be sure that our blood sugar does not fall to critical levels where we suffer from an increased lust for sugar. By avoiding fast carbohydrates, we reduce the risk of getting into a vicious spiral of severe fluctuations in our blood sugar levels.
3. Reduce your stress level
Reduce your stress levels with a positive mental attitude.
With tight deadlines and work colleagues that do not always work the way we want, it is easy for us to lose our temper and get irritated. In order to reduce the production of stress hormones that eventually damage our blood vessels, it is important to develop qualities such as patience, understanding, and a generally positive attitude. One tip is to start meditating, among other things.
Be aware of your posture in the office chair.
As we spend long hours in front of the computer, it is almost inevitable that sooner or later we will suffer from a protruding neck and forward rotated shoulders. This can be avoided through active conscious correct posture and the use of ergonomic aids.
5. Drink plenty of water
Always have a water bottle close at hand at work. When we do not drink enough water, we become dehydrated, which has a negative effect on our coordination and concentration ability. If we do not supply the body with enough water, the body must take oxygen from the blood instead, which makes us tired.
6. Stretch your legs
A prolonged sedentary sitting causes problems in the form of muscular inactivity, which in turn leads to a generally reduced energy turnover. By taking a short walk outdoors every two hours, we get the blood circulation going, while replenishing with new oxygen.
