Healthy at Work

img_6674

Staying healthy at work is important, especially if you have a desk job and are sitting most of the time. Below are my easy tips to feeling your best at work:

  • Always bring a water bottle! I usually pack my 32 oz Nalgene bottle. I try to go through 4 of those to get in a gallon.
  • I like to keep a mug and a bag of assorted teas at my desk to keep me hydrated and warm if it’s cold out. (It can also cure a sweet tooth!)
  • Get up and move 20-30 minutes. Perks of drinking a lot of water/tea, you have get up and pee a lot! (Tmi?)
  • Pack healthy snacks. Stay away from the vending machine, it is only loaded with foods that will leave you bloated and uncomfortable. I usually pack an apple or carrots with hummus, and I usually have a bag of almonds in my desk.
  • Have an upset stomach? Try GinGins! They relieve any stomach cramps.
  • Don’t forget to indulge! Seriously, treat yo self. If it is a co-workers birthday, eat some cake! It won’t kill ya, promise.
  • Smile! Seriously. It makes ya feel better.

    Lately I’ve been trying to make sure I get enough water. I’ve been trying to get 8-10 glasses per day. If you shoot for 4 of those bottles, you’re getting 16 glasses. Do you think I should be trying to drink more? 🙂 Love your blog!

      8-10 glasses sounds like a great start! You could incorporate more if you wanted too. I found that once I started drinking more water, the thirstier I became. So, drinking 16 glasses a day just happened on accident. I just always reach for water whenever I am thirsty!
