Eight plus hours in a chair in front of a computer, five days a week can take an enormous toll on your

See below some top tips from our medical team that can help you and employees stay healthy, well
and more productive at work:

  1. Keep hydrated– drinking 6-8 glasses of H20 daily is recommended. A common cause of dehydration in the modern workplace is air conditioning and can cause symptoms such as tiredness, loss of concentration and headaches. Keep hydrated for better productivity.
  2. Keep moving-every hour or so, get up from your desk and move around. Exercise is key to health and wellbeing. Walking during lunchtime is a great idea, not only are you burning calories, but you’re de-stressing and refreshing at the same time.
  3. Heathy lunch– eat a healthy lunch at work and practice portion control so you aren’t consuming too many calories and then sitting in a chair all afternoon. It may not be a case that you are eating unhealthy food, it’s just that you are eating too much.
  4. Snack wisely– reach for fruit instead of a biscuit when you feel the 3pm slump coming on.
  5. Stretch often– ‘deskercise’ is now more critical than ever, stretch your neck, back, arms, legs consistently throughout the day, set your alarm clock if you need to remind you.
  6. Avoid eye strain– eyestrain is another problem that can be encountered in front of a computer. It can cause headaches, difficulty focusing, and increased sensitivity to light. To prevent eyestrain, make sure your computer is positioned correctly, you should be able to comfortably read what’s on your screen at that distance, without having to squint.
  7. Vaccinate-against flu and if you are travelling, seek advice and appropriate vaccination for a more enjoyable and well- deserved break.
  8. Stress less– stress can impair your immune system, increasing the risk of illness, minimising it is essential. If you are feeling overly stressed, anxious or overwhelmed please seek advice from your GP on how to effectively manage stress levels.
