									healthy body and healthy mind.


Last year around 1.3 million working people suffered from an illness they
believed was caused or intensified by their current or past job.
Unhappiness and stress in the work place is common and this article
offers you some tips on maintaining health and happiness at work.

Establishing a stable routine is an obvious way   to improve your well-
being at work. Working regular hours and taking   consistent breaks means
your body is accustomed to following a pattern.   When constant
irregularities are occurring in your daily work   life your body will
suffer. Use flextime to adjust your working day   to suitable hours as over
working causes stress.

Your everyday work environment has to be comfortable. If you use a shared
working area then always adjust your chair, desk and computer to suit
you. The time spent on fixing your personal work space minimizes
discomfort and fatigue. Injuries in the workplace aren't uncommon with
ever increasing cases of work-related strains. It is important to create
a safe and comfortable work area that promotes productivity. Poor
ventilation, lighting and seating are detrimental to health.

Working in a great team will boost your desire to be at work. Treat
colleagues with the respect and consideration you would like to receive.
It is the employer's responsibility to ensure employees have the
motivation to go into work. A healthy work atmosphere is built by
productive teamwork where all employees work together to achieve common
goals and success. Don't isolate yourself and encourage yourself to join
in out of work gatherings.

Being happy in the work place is linked to being healthy. It is thought
that a healthy person copes better at work as job stress fundamentally
affects our physical and mental well-being. A good lifestyle that
involves regular exercise makes you feel good and boosts your energy
levels. Bringing that energy to work will contribute to a positive
atmosphere and allow you to manage stress. As well as regular physical
exercise, it is important to get adequate sleep.

Eating healthily at work is a huge contributing factor to being happy.
Lunches should contain a balanced diet of carbohydrates, vegetables,
salads and fruits. It is best to make your own lunch to reduce the
temptation of buying fast food alternatives that are usually featured in
work place canteens. Increasingly, corporate companies are offering
healthier lunches. Another tip to avoid bad health is to reduce tea and
coffee drinks.

You should drink a lot of water throughout the day to maintain a healthy
body and mind. Dehydration causes headaches, damages the immune system
and contributes to loss of concentration. Most offices today use water
coolers to provide fresh and chilled water for its employees. Office
water coolers encourage staff to drink more water therefore improving
health and energy.
To sustain health at work you need to combine exercise and healthy eating
that includes drinking plenty of water. You need to work regular hours in
a positive environment that is safe and comfortable.

We have this healthy, because it remains better than the fight.
