Maintaining wellness while at your 9-to-5 grind is POSSIBLE! These are our Top 4 Tips for Incorporating Wellness For the 9-5er.

Drink Water

Believe it or not, our bodies are made up of 60% water. Water is the key to staying sharp, focused, and glowing. Research tells us to drink 8 cups of water a day, but we think that is just the minimal amount of water that your body needs. When we are in the office, we like to take a liter size re-usable water bottle and aim to finish it by 5:00pm. Be prepared for many bathroom breaks, but the extra steps won’t hurt.

Stretch At Your Desk

Do you ever find yourself sitting for hours and hours on end at your desk? We are all guilty of letting hours fly by without giving our bodies the time to stretch or move. One of the best ways to maintain your flexibility and overall health, is to take incremental breaks to stretch. You can even use your desk as a tool to help!

Maintain Good Posture

Good posture is the KEY to good health. Does your neck, upper shoulders, or lower back ache after a long day at the office? If you’re experiencing soreness or deep aches after work, it’s time to work on your posture. Our tip is to set reminders for every hour to bring your attention to your posture. Are you sitting up straight or are you slouched over at your computer?

Protect Your Eyes

Our eyes are exposed all day long in the office, and most of us leave with tired eyes. There is no way for us to not be exposed to blue light on your phones and laptops, but there are ways to lessen the effects of harmful lights. Our tip is to dim the brightness on your laptop and on your phone. There is also “night-mode” on all iPhones that is specifically tailored to limit blue light exposure and to be gentle on the eyes. At night, enjoy relaxing with our silk eye mask. It’s perfect for quieting the mind and calming your nerves after a long workday.
