Healthy Habits for a New Season

1. Get up and move frequently

Don’t remain seated in your chair for long periods of time. Set a reminder on your phone to get up off your chair - whether you go for a walk, stretch or simply stand for a few minutes. Why not try heading outdoors for a walking meeting with colleagues - this can be an easy way to get moving for 30 minutes!

2. Cook and pack your own lunches

Proper nutrition starts by knowing what you eat, and making your foods is the best way to do so. By making and packing your own lunches, you will be able to choose the fresh and healthy ingredients that will help towards a balanced lifestyle. 

3. Try mindfulness 

Mindfulness is one of the best ways to reduce stress and be at peace with your inner self. Practising mindfulness regularly also improves immunity, concentration, happiness, and many more. Take a break and find a quiet space to practice some mindful activities at work for at least 10 minutes every morning. Doing so can also significantly improve your productivity at work and also your health. There are lots of helpful mindfulness guides online.

4. Get the whole team involved

Why not try initiating a challenge for the whole workplace to get involved with? Whether it’s a best outdoor photo challenge or a weekly steps challenge, these are a great way to boost team morale whilst also encouraging each other to get outdoors! 

5. Drink more water

Start using a reusable water bottle and take it with you wherever you go. Drinking lots of water is crucial to our mental and physical health. By simply having a water bottle to hand has been shown to encourage us to stay hydrated with water and can help curb that excessive coffee consumption. 

We hope these tips will help make new routines that result in a happier and healthier you!
