5 easy office health hacks to add into your daily routine

  • Water

    The body is 80% fluid. Dehydration has a big effect on body function and therefore can have a knock on to other health conditions, eg prolonged poor hydration can lead to early kidney failure!

  • Move More

    Your spines designed to move so let it! Tricks like using a printer out of reach from your chair makes you get up regularly. This may sound like a waste of time but actually movement gets your blood flowing better and therefore increases oxygenation of your body and has been shown to improve concentration.

  • Screen Position

    Ensure it is central and level with your eyes to prevent twisting to one side all day. Imagine working one side of your body out in the gym you’ll end up with one side developed and the other not! This plays havoc with spinal function as it’s designed to be balanced. 

  • Chair

    Set it up to your ergonomic needs and leave it there. Do not allow yourself to recline! Although you think you look cool it won’t be long before you regret that choice when your back and neck start to niggle. 

  • Sugar, Bad Fat, Calories….. 

    Sugar + Bad Fats – These contents in food promote inflammation. If somethings already sore this is likely to make it worse. Just as high levels of inflammatory foods can leave you more vulnerable to pain. It’s not easy to know what you are eating, particularly when eating out. A lot of instant food and drink powders contain sugars you have no idea about, which means poor nutritional value, increased calories and therefore a disaster for weight management.

Bad repetitive habits build up, creating repetitive chronic injury and or pain.
