Endless hours hunched over a keyboard, the undeniable appeal of the staff room biscuits and a complete lack of natural light peeking into the cubical may sound like a normal day for those of us with an office job, but just what kind of damage is it doing to our health and what can we do to avoid it while building our personal empires?!
UNHEALTHY = Poor Desk Posture
Sitting for long periods of time is said to be the new smoking! We all know the dangers of smoking but could something we do for hours on end every day be just as dangerous? Research has found that for every hour we are sitting we lose 22 minutes from our expected life span. In contrast, a smoker shortens their life by 11 minutes per cigarette. Other side effects of prolonged sitting and poor desk posture include chronic pain, poor circulation, and an increased chance of injury as we are putting excessive pressure on our spines.
HEALTHY = Switch It Up & Move!!
UNHEALTHY = Sarah at Reception’s birthday, Retirement cakes and obligatory biscuits with coffee at morning tea!
Office environments are generally the most sociable around the water cooler… cliché I know! Check out any staff room at the peak hour time of 10:30am and you will see an abundance of Arnott’s Assorted Creams and Tim Tams. Add an obligatory slice of Happy Birthday / Happy Retirement / Happy Breakup cake and you will very quickly notice those empty, sugary calories sneaking up on you.
HEALTHY OPTION = Plan Ahead & Be Prepared
