How to Stay Healthy at Work

Career Advice

When it comes to health, you have to consider both your physical and mental state. And at work it’s easy to become beaten down due to stress, so much so that you could become physically ill. What can you do prevent that feeling of burn out? How do you stay on top of your game both physically and mentally? These tips can help.

  1. Sleep more.
    Prioritize your sleep. That might mean watching less TV at night so you can get a solid night of rest, or having to get behind a little bit at work so that you can catch up on your zzz’s. If you’re not getting enough sleep, you’re not going to be productive at work or at home.
  2. Cut back on caffeine.
    Caffeine is dehydrating, which isn’t good for anyone’s immune system. And it’s a crutch for sleepless nights. You know that if you stay up late, you can get a quick pick-me-up in the morning regardless of how you feel. Try switching to tea or decaf coffee as you make the transition, and follow each cup of caffeine with an even bigger cup of water.
  3. Eat a healthier breakfast and lunch.
    Start with a filling breakfast like oatmeal with fruit on top as opposed to cereal, which often only fills you up for an hour or two. Re-think your lunches too: a bigger, protein-packed meal mid-day can power you through the afternoon easily. Take a few extra minutes to pursue the healthier choice instead of the fast food, grab-and-go meals.
