  • Frequently clean your desk, phone, keyboard and other supplies with disinfectant cleaner.
  • Keep hand sanitizer on your desk and use it often. . .and share with co-workers!
  • Wash your hands regularly, using soap and warm water.

Work Out at Work. Find ways to add activity into your workday routine. Park farther away, so you get a nice walk whenever you go to your car. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Try Desk Yoga…there are many online resources where you can learn the poses to stretch, strengthen and relieve stress.

Eat Right. Good nutrition is an important part of every work day. Choose snacks and meals that are satisfying and good for you. Rally for more nutritious options in the company cafeteria or snack machine, or bring nourishing foods from home. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains are always great choices.

Stay Hydrated. Be sure you’re getting enough water: eight 8-oz. glasses each day. Keep a water bottle on your desk and know how many times you need to fill it to get your daily H2O quota. Water helps keep you alert, relieves stress, carries nutrients through your body, and even helps boost metabolism! It can also improve skin tone and texture, so it’s a beauty boost, too!
