Did you know that one of the biggest roadblocks to your overall health may be your job? It’s true! We spend about 1/3 of our waking life at work, and if you’re confined to a cubicle at a stressful job each day, your physical and mental well-being can take a beating.
Luckily, all you need to do is make a few simple tweaks to fend off stress, pain, inflammation and other work health woes.
Try to keep stress levels low.
This one can be tricky, especially if your work in a pressure-cooker environment, but it’s definitely worth a try. Elevated stress levels have been linked to increased pain and inflammation, and serious health conditions such as obesity, high blood pressure, and headaches. It can also seriously impact the quality of your sleep.
