In order for us to perform at our best at work each and every day, it’s important to look after our health. There are, of course, many ways to do this, and depending on how physically active your job is, routines can differ. However, two things which everyone needs to stay healthy are a balanced diet and a good sleep routine.

Eating Healthy at Work

If like most people, you work in an office job, it can be tricky to eat healthily. The temptation of nearby fast food, delivery services and vending machines can weigh pretty heavily on anyone.

However, as long as you can get organised, being healthy at work can be easier than you might have thought.

Just take a look at this article from the Huffington Post Canada which offers up lots of handy tips to help you create a healthy weekly meal routine.

Good Sleep Routines

The other part of our lives which can massively affect how well we perform at work is our bedtime routines.

It is widely regarded that, as adults, we should aim to get around 8 hours sleep each night. You can read more about this on the National Sleep Foundation site.

Unfortunately, this is much easier for some than others. If you work unusual times, have children or suffer from a sleeping disorder, the idea of 8 hours each night can seem a world away.

To counter this, we find different ways to keep us awake during the working day. One of the most popular around the world is to consume plenty of caffeine.

The want and need for coffee and energy drinks are higher than ever as we all desperately try and get a caffeine fix during the working day. This has ultimately lead to more people suffering from caffeine addiction.

Trying to fight off tiredness with other substances really isn’t the best way to combat sleepiness. A better way is to consider how you can improve your bedtime routine.

While we all know plants and flowers provide us with oxygen, food and decoration. One of the lesser known benefits is that they can help us get a good night’s sleep.

A great new infographic from flowercard.co.uk offers up a simple but effective approach to this. It’s called ‘10 Plants To Place By Your Bed To Help You Sleep Better and you can take a look at it below.
