Health Tips For Office Workers

According to the latest statistics, office work might be slowly on the way out. Indeed, it looks likely that in fifty years time, it might not be quite the phenomenon it is now, and it has already started dying out considerably in recent times. As people move to the home to work more and more, this is going to continue happening. One area of our lives which might improve as a result of that is our health, which often suffers in the office in a number of ways. For now, here are some things you can do to counteract those problems and look after your health in the office.


Avoid Straining Your Eyes
One of the first parts of the body that will experience problems for office workers is the eyes. If you are staring at a computer screen all day, you are going to find that your eyes start to strain before long, and before you know it you might have to go out and get a glasses prescription. It is important to avoid straining your eyes, as far as possible. One of the best ways to do that is to ensure that you look in the distance - out of a window is perfect - every half an hour or so, for about a minute. That allows the eyes to relax again after focusing on the screen.

Get Deskercising
There are many kinds of exercise that you can do at your desk - often known as deskercise - which are going to help to keep your body in tact, even if you put in a lot of hours at the office every day. Many of these are simple stretches and movements, and while it is not the same as normal exercise, they are important for keeping the blood flowing properly and ensuring that you are looking after your bones and joints and ligaments. Get deskercising, and see how much better you feel about it.


Take Breaks
Everyone is entitled to a break. When it is time to have yours, you should make sure that you are actually going to take it, and take it fully. That will ensure that you allow your body to relax and feel refreshed mentally when you go back, both of which are valuable when it comes to staying healthy at work. If you fail to take breaks, or you eat lunch at your desk every day, the cumulative effect on your health is going to be surprisingly large.

Manage Stress
Stress is a killer. It’s important to remind yourself of that, because it is so easy to simply treat it as an ordinary and normal thing. It is certainly common, but it's not the kind of thing that you should allow to overtake your life. If you are getting stressed a lot at work, your body is spending a lot of time in cortisol overdrive, and that means that you are going to have a shorter life. Manage your stress by any means necessary - deep-breathing, visualization, meditation - in order to look after your health more effectively.
