You sit in an office all day, you don’t move your body and you eat pizza, hamburgers, candy, mac and cheese and other foods that are a danger to your body and mind.
If you have office food perks, your company provides them not because they like you, but so you will like them!
And that candy jar that every other person has at their desk? Danger Will Robinson!
The expenditure for food and snacks costs the company very little money compared to the cost of replacing you as an employee.
You are gaining weight, getting unhealthy yet the company has no or very few health benefits to support you with your personal fitness.
You are stressed by long commutes, longer work hours, heavy drinking and no measurable exercise.
What are you supposed to do?
First of all, just say no to any of the foods that do not work for you.
Brown Bag your lunch; include healthy snacks.
Then, start walking. Walk around your office every hour to get your blood moving.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
Use your lunch break to walk. I know, it’s too cold, too wet; too hot; too humid! Get outside soon.
Check out your blood pressure frequently. You can accomplish this in many ways: Fire departments provide free BP tests; most pharmacies provide BP stations and be sure to have your BP taken at the same time of day as the prior tests.
It’s your life – make it work for you.
