Top chiropractic care in Charlotte NC wants you to keep yourself safe and healthy at the office
Top chiropractic care in Charlotte NC knows that when you’re at work, the last thing you’re usually thinking about is your health. Employees have enough on their mind as it is, as they concentrate on their work tasks for the day. However, this absent-mindedness may lead to the development of some unhealthy workplace practices. If left alone, these bad habits can put your health in danger, and can lead to the development of chronic health conditions. Chiropractic care in Charlotte NC has made this guide of poor workday habits to keep in mind the next time you make a trip to the office.
Using office furniture that is not ergonomic
Chiropractic care in Charlotte NC knows all about the importance of using furniture that is ergonomic for your body. Ergonomic furniture is especially important at work, since the majority of employees will sit at a desk for most of their workday. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) says that your office furniture should consist of a chair that supports the back, buttocks, legs, and arms. If a chair has you in an awkward position, either change your posture or get a new chair. You should also stray away from any forceful exertions while on the job. If your furniture is not conducive to a natural posture with easy body movements, then it is best to make a switch.
Not getting enough exercise
Since the majority of 9-5 jobs involve sitting at a desk, many people are not participating in as much physical activity as they should be. There are so many health benefits that accompany getting at least 150 minutes of exercise in per week. These benefits include improving cardiovascular health, maintaining a healthy weight, and increasing your thinking skills and memory. If you spend the majority of your workday sedentary, then make time for exercise once you get home, or on the weekends. Chiropractic care in Charlotte NC can work with you to put in an exercise regimen in your busy schedule.
Eating your office’s donuts
If your office regularly stocks its break room with donuts, or other sweet treats, and you are regularly consuming one every day (or more!) then you are doing a disservice to your health. Donuts can have upwards of 500 calories in them, and they offer no nutritional value. These empty calories only add to your waistline without giving you the energy you need to make it through your work day. Beware of bagels as well. Some bagels can have upwards of 300 calories and be drenched in butter. Instead, pack a healthy and delicious snack that you can munch on throughout your day to avoid the break room temptations.
