As a chiropractor in Denver, we see a lot of people during the day who come to our office while on a break from theirs. Some folks love their jobs and others aren't as enthusiastic. If you're struggling to feel better at work, here are ten things to try this week to improve your work day.
1. Drink More Water
Studies have shown that. not drinking enough water can affect your memory and your level of fatigue. By drinking enough water during the day, your brain will function better, and that will make you feel better at work.
2. Be On Time
Not only will your boss feel better about your performance, but you will too. And "being on time consistently shows everyone around you that you are the master of your life". And who doesn’t want to feel like that?
3. Get Up and Move
Have you heard sitting is the new smoking? Sitting hour after hour at work slumped in front of a keyboard is every bit as detrimental to your health as smoking. Schedule a walk to the water cooler or around the block every hour.
4. Get More and Better Sleep
It’s not just the quantity, but also the quality of your sleep that matters. Without both, you’re going to lose focus and be crankier throughout the day.
5. Avoid Other People’s Colds
It’s the worst when a co-worker’s cold makes its way to your desk. Keep anti-germ wipes on hand to frequently wipe down your desk, keyboard, and mouse. And while you’re getting up to stretch your legs, go the bathroom and wash your hands.
6. Stretch at Your Desk
Try some desk yoga or stretches at your desk to ease your tension and get some much-needed movement to your limbs.
7. Visit A Chiropractor in Denver
