No matter how healthy and fit we would love to be, we have a week of more than sixty-hour work. We have to do that until the weekend comes. Sticking to the desk in that period is seriously harmful, but you cannot leave the work to fulfil your professional as well personal life expectations. Making some changes you can stay healthy and fit. Here are some ways for your support:
Do desk exercises if you have no time to leave your work desk
Without any physical activity, it is hard for you to stay concentrated on your work and sticking to the desk most of the time is harmful to you. If you have no time and you do not take a short break, do desk exercises for 2-3 minutes after a certain period. You can go forward toward the desk and backwards the desk. In addition, you can do leg stretching while being in your seat.
Carry a protein bar
Eating natural foods is essential for staying healthy and fit. However, taking a protein/granola bar is more beneficial in comparison with taking junk or fast foods. Carry it with you and take it when you are very busy in your office or work at home.
Walk while talking on your phone
We all do almost nothing when we talk to someone on the phone. It is better for you to go to office balcony and walk while talking on the phone. Being on the feet helps you burn calories and boosts your weight loss journey, leading you to a healthy lifestyle.
Cook meal in advance
Whether you work in an office or at home, I am sure that you have an idea about the day on which you will be very busy. Get prepared for that day in advance. Cook your favourite dish earlier and take it with to stay away from having unhealthy foods in your busy day.
Avoid eating at the desk and choose the time for socializing during the lunch
Always keep in mind that we are a social animal. Being with colleagues, friends, family members and known-persons helps you have a good feeling and happy. As far as possible, avoid having your lunch at the desk and go to office canteen for having lunch with your office mates.
Wear tracking device for motivation
In today’s world, the market around is flooded with several health devices that help to track the physical activities you do in a day for staying healthy and fit. Wear such a band on your wrist and track how active you were. This will motivate you to take the possible efforts that can help you stay healthy.
Stop working and take a break for at least 20 seconds
You know you can get stressed if you work continuously for a longer period. Stop your work and take a deep breath for 20 seconds when you feel you are stressed. This will help you beat the work stress and fill you with fresh energy.
