Rather than snacking on a candy bar or soda at your desk in your executive suite rental, get up, move around and stay active. Studies have recently shown that sitting for long periods of time can lead to a number of health issues. After just one hour of continuous sitting your metabolism will be significantly reduced, leading to your muscles burning less fat and the blood flowing much less efficiently in your body. All this can lead to an increased risk of cancer, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
With the average person spending approximately 40 hours each week parked in front of their computer, health concerns for office workers are at an all-time high. Some tips that will help you remain health in your executive suite rental are highlighted here.
Get Up and Walk in Your Executive Office Suite
Set your phone or watch to go off every hour to remind you to get up and move or walk. Take two to three minutes to help get your blood flowing once again. In addition to being great for your overall health, it can also help you stay focused and get refreshed if you are working on a big or tedious project.
Sit Up Straight
Your posture also makes a huge difference in the way you feel. If you have bad posture, you likely also experience back pain – daily. You can improve your posture when you ensure that you have an ergonomically arranged workstation. This should include:
- Keeping your monitor at eye level
- Keeping your keyboard within easy reach
- Sitting with your feet flat on the floor
You can take this a step further and install a treadmill desk, which are the latest rage in keeping your workforce healthy in your executive suite rental.
