Take Afternoon Walks

Decreased daylight hours can lead to a common, yet poorly understood condition called Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. While many people dismiss SAD’s qualification as a real condition, it is indeed very real and can lead to depression, poor work performance and low energy. The key to beating SAD is to maximize your daylight hours and increase the time you spend enjoying natural sunlight. Make it a habit to take afternoon walks and soak up as much Vitamin D as possible before the sun goes down. If you’re feeling like SAD is hitting you hard this fall and winter, we recommend taking a daily Vitamin D supplement and consulting a doctor for advice. Read More

5 Tips for Eating Healthy at Work

  1. Eat Breakfast

…Or take it with you! Although many people report not feeling hungry in the mornings, eating breakfast is one of the best things you can do to boost your energy, set your whole day up for healthy eating and to prevent the “munchies” later in the afternoon. If you can’t stomach food so early in the morning, at least take it with you so you can enjoy it on the way to work or shortly after you arrive.

 

  1. Have Lunch Away from Your Desk

It may be easier to chow down in front of your computer so you can get some extra tasks done during your lunch break, but this is an unhealthy habit that you should try to kick. Nearly 70 percent of workers admit to lunching at their desk at least once per week.

Although you may feel busy and need the time during lunch to work, this can actually harm your productivity, morale and lead to unhealthy eating habits. Resist the urge and move to the break room, outside in the courtyard or take a quick walk. All of these tactics can help you get a small burst of energy and needed downtime, which is rejuvenating, and can help boost your relationship with your co-workers.

  1. Snack on Stress-Reducing Foods

It’s okay to snack throughout the day and actually, we encourage it! Nutritious foods like nuts, berries, whole grains and vegetables will not only energize you, but help you to feel full for longer and reduce workplace stress. Regularly incorporate these items into your meals and you’ll see a difference in productivity, focus and happiness.

  1. Drink More Water

Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is a key to good health. Not only does water help your brain and essential organs function, it can help regulate your meals and food intake. It’s a good practice to drink a glass of water each time you feel hungry, as the signals your body sends for thirst and hunger are very similar. Many times you’ll notice hunger goes away after drinking water since your thirst has been fulfilled. If you still feel famished after the glass of H20, go ahead and have a healthy snack or meal.

  1. Practice Moderation

Eating healthy foods can make a noticeable impact on your energy and happiness at work, but that doesn’t mean your favorite junk foods are off-limits. Moderation is the key to all things, so don’t be afraid to “treat yourself” to a favorite snack every once in a while!
