Staying Happy and Healthy at Work

Staying Happy and Healthy at Work

We spend most of our lives at work. It’s important that we find the balance between being healthy and happy both at work and in our own time if we are to live life to the fullest.

Although staying healthy and happy at work may seem like an impossible feat, with a few small changes to your routine you could soon find yourself achieving both.

Look after your diet

Instead of reaching for unhealthy snacks when hunger strikes, opt for some fresh fruit to brighten up your day and keep your health on track. You can easily get baskets full of fresh, seasonal office fruit delivered straight to your door as an easy, colourful and healthy alternative to fast food and sugary snacks.

Such fruits will give your immune system a boost, help you focus more at work and keep you feeling fit and healthy overall.

Ensure your work has purpose

If you don’t feel that you are being sufficiently challenged or utilised in the workplace, then do something to change it. If you don’t feel that your work is meaningful or has a purpose, it becomes all too easy to lose focus.

Talk to your boss about your role and what you feel you could be doing to stretch yourself and contribute more to the company. This also puts you in a better position to ask for a raise or get involved in the projects that interest you the most.

Feel at home

We spend so much time at work that our workspace should feel somewhat personal. It’s a good idea to surround yourself with items that make you feel more comfortable – within your company’s guidelines.

Photos, ornaments or motivational posters can help boost your happiness levels at work, helping you to feel more connected to your workplace.

Make an effort to be friendly

Even if you are a lone wolf, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or at a loss if you have no one at work to talk to at all. Make yourself available to people by being friendly, which in turn can help both you and your new friend become more engaged at work as you will perceive your job to be more enjoyable and more meaningful to you.

Take breaks

Motivation is incredibly important, but one way of sustaining it is to take frequent breaks throughout the day. Get outside for some fresh air, even if it’s just for a few minutes every few hours. It will help you feel recharged and allow you to regain some focus.

If you don’t allow yourself to take breaks you will become burned out quickly, and your health and happiness at work will suffer as a result.

These are just some simple tips to help you stay happy and healthy in the workplace. By implementing just a few of these, you’ll soon start to see a difference in your life at the office.
