How to Stay Healthy at Work

Minutes to a Healthier Work Day

The workplace, whether it's a desk job or otherwise, isn't always conducive to a healthy lifestyle. You may find yourself snacking on chips and candy out of boredom, eating fast food for a quick lunch, unmotivated to hit the gym after a long work day, tempted by birthday and holiday break-room treats, and spending the majority of your day in a sedentary state.

But sometimes taking just a few minutes out of the day to make small changes can make a big difference. For some tips on making your work day healthier, read more.

I don't have a typical desk job, but during my lunch break I go for a walk or hit the gym for a quick run. It wakes me up and refreshes me for the afternoon.

Drink lots of water - besides being good for you, it'll force you to get up often to hit the restroom!!

This is a great post! I've been out of college for a year now. It took my 6mo to find a desk job where I put on like 10lbs!!! Those candy jars are evil I tell ya! I walk to work now when weather permitts and I have dried fruit and nuts in case I get the urge to snack. those little changes have made a difference!
