Thanksgiving feasts and holiday parties are here. We understand the last months of the year are known to test our commitment to our health. And since we spend a majority of our time at the office, I want to share these super easy ways to be healthier at work over the holidays…
- Keep healthy snacks at your desk
Having a NeoLifeBar at arms reach will prevent you from hitting the vending machine.
- Bring your own lunch
NeoLifeShake is not just healthy and delicious. You’ll also save money over hitting up the local sandwich shop.
- Skip the elevator and take the stairs
This is an easy way to get your heart rate up.
- Workout at lunch
Take 20 or 30 minutes to run, do yoga or weights. Your day is likely to fly by and your evening schedule generally gets filled with errands or dinner with friends.
- Ditch your office chair
Instead use a stability ball to work your core.
- Choose a smaller plate
This helps portion control during any buffet style eating.
- Start a workout break
Here at NeoLife, we’re big believers of the 3pm pushup and plank contests. It’s when a group of our team takes a mental breaks to bond and challenge each other. Makes a great mid-day workout.
- Walk more
Easy ways to do this are to park your car further from the front door and march on conference calls.
- Avoid temptation
Skip the lunch room all together, this is generally where holiday goodies are laid out.
Remember these extra steps per day may not seem like much, but every calorie burned or avoided can only benefit you. Plus consistently using your Health Pack and NeoLife products is always the best way to keep your energy levels up and cravings at bay – especially during the holidays!
Another great tool to stay accountable is to download the NeoLife Weekly Tracker, there you can keep track of all your meals, supplements and exercise regimes.
