Losing Weight at Workplace

in Health

With modern lifestyle, people spend most of the days at work. However, sitting at the desk 8 hours or even more than does not offer people (especially women) time to do exercises in exchange of keeping or losing weight. Hence, it would be ideal to find a way of losing fat at office instead of burning all additional calories at the gym. Here are some effective tips that people should cooperate with daily regimen at work to help drop some pounds during you work days.

 

Drink water


According to some researches, drinking at least eight glasses of water during eight hours at workplace will benefit you. Scientifically, hunger can count for symptoms of dehydration most of the time. Otherwise, drinking plenty of water assures that you are not glued at your desk all the time. Some precious time will definitely be spent on taking water and walking to the restroom several times throughout the day.

Make use of lunch break


Normally, officers have 30 minutes or one full hour for lunch. Whatever how much time you get, you should spend less time eating and more time exercising. In addition, some statistics show that focusing on work can directly lead to stress.

Take the stairs


Due to the fact that people can burn approximately 100 calories by walking in ten minutes up and down the stairs, it is highly recommended that officers should take advantage of any time strolling. If you go to the office by your own vehicles, you should not park in a near place. Finding a further parking place offers you time  to walk to the office. Furthermore, instead of taking elevator, you are advised to take the stairs at work if possible.
