Yesterday, we began the discussion of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and eating habits while at work. Now, boy do we know how easy it is to give into temptation and get that delicious looking burger or Reuben sandwich from down the street. But if we really want to meet our goals and stick to our healthy choices, we need to have discipline! But what we also need are some tips to help us out along the way, and that’s where we come in!
We already listed off some tips in our previous blog from yesterday, so if you missed it, make sure to catch up! Because today we’re going to be providing even more tips on healthy eating while in the work place. So without further adieu, here you go:
- Choose fruit as a great snack to get you through the day! Avoid the donuts and other high-cal pastries provided by the office like the plague! Opt instead for some strawberries, grapes, or blueberries. Not only are these fruits delicious, but they’re also packed with antioxidants that will also boost your health too!
- Coffee is your friend (in moderation of course). Now, we aren’t saying you need to have a whole pot to yourself, otherwise your heart may explode. But regular coffee drinking has some health benefits that include lower risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and strokes. Now mind you, that’s black coffee. If you load your cup with sugar or creamer, then that health benefit goes right out the window.
- Stretch often. While sitting in a nice, air conditioned office is nice, you still need to get your body moving, regularly. Even if it just means standing at your desk every 20 or so minutes to stretch, the more movement, the better.
- Optimism is always a good thing! There’s proof in the numbers, I swear! Research has shown that there’s significant health benefits towards those people who are more optimistic than pessimistic. See, I told you! Just by smiling a little more and being just a bit happier can not only improve your day, but also improve your health and your ct health insurance coverage as well!
