How to be Happier in the Cubicle – TIP #2

One way to make even a day in the cubicle seem better is to focus on your health and happiness. If you feel your best the day definitely goes by a little easier. This means take control of your life. I believe starting small is the key. Here are some examples of ways to begin the new you.

1. Schedule some time to exercise. This can be as simple as taking a walk on your lunch hour 2 times per week, or finally stop and check out that gym membership you have been considering. There is something motivational about being around other people who are working out and feeling good about themselves as well.

2. Add 1 fruit or vegetable to each meal. Make a time to go shopping for some fresh food. Fruits and vegetables contain essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber that may help protect you from chronic diseases. Compared with people who consume a diet with only small amounts of fruits and vegetables, those who eat more generous amounts as part of a healthful diet are likely to have reduced risk of chronic
diseases, including stroke and perhaps other cardiovascular diseases, and certain cancers.

3. Drink more water. Adequate water intake prevents dehydration, cleans out the body, and promotes healing processes. Substituting water for alcohol can also help control weight. Follow the steps below to make sure you’re getting enough of this most basic necessity. Each day I like to fill a large container with water, limes and lemons. I make a goal to drink all the water by the time the work day is over.

Feeling healthy can happen faster than you think. These are simple steps you can take to make sure you are in control of your own health. The cubicle is not always easy and the time has a tendency to drag. If you take some time to focus on yourself and your goals outside of the cubicle, then you will be a better you.
