Love your job or hate your job, being in the office can wreck your health. Between the germs your coworkers so kindly share when they come to work sick to the germs that strangers bring in when they visit the office, there’s a lot that can make you sick. That’s why it is so important for you to learn a few simple tricks that will help you maintain the maximum amount of health, even when you’re at work.
Even if you are slammed and don’t have a second to spare, you have to eat. Not only does eating ensure that your brain is functioning to the best of its ability, it also helps to keep your immune system strong. Skipping lunch can cause fatigue, shakiness, and irritability. You need to eat; and don’t think something from the vending machine will suffice. It needs to be healthy.
Staying hydrated can help you avoid the gross germs that are in your office. When you aren’t hydrated, your immune system slows down, making you more susceptible to issues with your health. Try to drink at least eight, eight ounce glasses every day and you should feel good all day long.
One of the easiest ways to maintain your health at the office is to get your flu shot every year. Flu germs are everywhere, and catching one can mean a solid week of misery. The flu is bad; it will have you bedridden. You cannot afford to catch and spread those germs at the office, so get your flu shot. An added benefit of this is that getting your flu shot will prevent bringing the virus home to your spouse and children. Your health isn’t the only health you have to worry about in your own house.
