Sitting at a desk all day is not healthy, but something that’s a reality for most of us. We’ve compiled a few tips to help keep your body happy.
Practice the 20/20/20 rule
Every 20 minutes look at something 20 feet (six metres) away for 20 seconds. By refocusing your eyes, you’ll prevent eyestrain.
Stand up | Stretch | Go for a little walk
Stretching is a great way to clear your head and reset your brain. Try to stand up as often as you can and find tasks that you can do while standing. Going for a little walk around the office, office building or the street outside is a great way to give your eyes, body and brain a break from your desk.
Clean your desk and electronics
Ditch the clutter
Keep the contents of your desk relevant. If you don’t need it, get rid of it. Seriously – just throw it away!
Do not eat lunch at your desk. Stand up, move around and find a lunch spot elsewhere that works for you. Eating lunch away from your desk may lead to increased interaction with your co-workers and potentially even friends!
