Working long hours can take a toll on your health. You are prone to high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol, and might also increase your risk of developing cancer. But by being proactive and taking some precautions, you can minimize its impact and keep yourself healthy and happy.
Here are three healthy work habits to ensure better overall health:
* Drink Water: Many people are so busy at work that they forget to eat, or drink water, and all those cups of coffee can dehydrate you. As your body craves water, you can feel hungry, irritable, or listless, just because you're thirsty.
* Don't Eat Sugary Snacks: The best part of any workday when surprise bagels or doughnuts are served at a meeting. But those extra sweets and carbohydrates build onto your system.
* Eat Lunch: With so much going on at work, you may skip lunch or prolong it until you're ravenous at 3:00 p.m. That makes it even more tempting to grab a candy bar from the vending machine.
