How to Be Healthy at Work Over the Winter
During the winter, imagine your health like a snowball perched on top of a hill.
Up until now, you’ve been crushing the whole #HealthyLiving thing. Google “up-and-coming health gurus,” and you might find your face on the first page.
Then, winter arrives. You walk into your office’s kitchen, and before you, like an adult-sized mousetrap, sits a tin of holiday cookies. It’s OK. Taking one won’t do any harm.
Remember that snowball? The symbol of your health? It starts to rotate off its plateau. Suddenly, it starts barreling down the hill, uncontrollably growing as it collects junk along the way: cookies, candy, gym excuses, several mornings of just 10 more minutes in bed, and a general apathy for those healthy habits that propelled you through the summer and into the fall.
Now, breathe. Staying healthy over the winter is a bear; and staying healthy at work over the winter is a whole different animal. To fight back, use the resources for the office health tips you need to be the best, healthiest you during the harsh winter months.
