Is Your Office Work Lifestyle Healthy?

Having a desk job means you’re not standing around on aching feet all day, but at the same time it means you’re unlikely to move. This isn’t healthy for human beings however as we are created to move around as much as we can. It seems the job market is moving towards the detrimental in this respect, with a sedentary lifestyle coming more and more into fashion. In fact, less than 20% of jobs in the modern world require physical activity. Inactivity is extremely detrimental to our wellbeing, so the next time you’re at the office, keep a few of these tips in mind.

Take Active Breaks

When it comes to a spare five minutes or a 20 minute break for lunch or after, make sure you’re using the time to your health’s advantage. Try going outside with your coffee or sandwich to have a walk around and contribute to the 10,000 steps per day experts tell us we should be doing.

If you can’t get outside, try walking around the space indoors more often. It can even be a valuable working technique as kinesthetic memory techniques are used around the world in schools and colleges for people who don’t like to stagnate as they study. If you need to memorize a speech or a few calendar dates, increase your memory capacity with the important things you need to know by reading whilst walking.

Use Furniture Designed For Your Back

Having an ergonomic chair to sit in is the best option here, so try and opt for stressless home office chairs as an option in your office renovation, either at work or at home. This will promote healthy back positioning, and can be an office wide revolution if you can convince your boss.

Similarly, you can get standing desks to increase the blood flow and overall health of your legs. It also means you’re not stuck in the same position for hours at a time, and can be adjusted for your needs.

Stretch Regularly

Keeping joints popped and your back cracked is extremely satisfying, mostly when you first wake up. However, try to apply that to your daily routine as well. If you have a spare couple of minutes, try to stretch out your arms and legs. This will encourage healthier blood flow as well, and is easy to do no matter how physically fit you are at the time. It can make you feel more awake and uplift your vitality levels, allowing you to get back to work with a freshened mindset.

Have Lunch Away From Your Desk

Eating at the computer can actually make us feel more tired and not ready for the afternoon stint. Keep around some granola bars or just a glass of water to keep your desk hygiene healthy and working with you rather than against you.

Take time to make little alterations to your desk working routine. It’s much better for your health in the long term to pair a sedentary workstyle with movement!

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
