Staying Healthy at the Office Under the Fluorescent Sun

Healthy at the OfficeStaying healthy and working is not always easy. Fun in the sun is only a dream for some stuck in the office with not even a window in sight. The office tan can be quite a bright white fright for people at the beaches and pools and even for the luminescent alabaster individual walking past a mirror at night. The thing even more frightening than the ghostly paleness is the disastrous effect it can have on your health.

That’s right, chilling at your desk, bathing in the fluorescent rays of the over head lights and multiple screens all around while noshing on nacho cheese chips and sipping on fizzy caffeinated drinks is, in fact, bad for your health. It isn’t very good for that project you are working on right now either. The good news is that you can change it all very easily starting today and get that project finished early to have more play time by just doing these three things.

Tips for Staying Healthy at the Office

Walk outside for a few (15-30) minutes every day to soak up some real rays of that bright yellow orb in the sky without any sun screen so you can get the full healthy effect. Getting a tan is not the goal as this break in the day is to get more vitamin D and oxygen into your body for improved vascular, brain and colon health. This tip will both get you off your rear-end and possibly just save your rear end in the future.

Rest your eyes every day by getting away from your computer screen, shutting off the fake lights, putting down the phone and using just candles or dim full spectrum lights at night for 1 hour before bed. Doing this nightly will allow your body to produce melatonin for better sleep and allow your eyes to relax for better vision so you can think more clearly and see things you might often miss. This tip will give you better vision and clearer sight for better days when you wake up.

Eat well to fuel your body with nutrients from the sun. Load up on fresh colorful vegetables, munch on crunchy seeds, chew on fresh cheese and add a little lemon, lime or watermelon to your water. The fresh foods of the summer have been soaking up the sun rays to give you the nutrients needed for protection from the sun and seasonal allergies. They also make cookouts and meals even more tasty and fun. This tip will feed your life as well as starve out disease and strife.

One final thought to keep you healthy year round. Get up and move, sit down and rest, eat only the best and do all three as needed to keep your health in the groove. Stop playing cat and house with your health.
