Energy-boosting tips for the office

All workers could use an energy boost from time to time. Aside from splurging on an espresso drink or guzzling the office's coffee supply, many employees are unsure of how to overcome the afternoon slump. A few quick health tips can get everyone at the office back up to speed.

For sustained energy throughout the day, encourage workers to eat breakfast and snack on nuts, fruit or trail mix throughout the day. Nuts contain healthy fats and proteins that supply the body with the energy it needs, and fruit boosts blood sugar, mood and the body's immune system. Avoid bringing heavy, greasy fast foods to the office. Provide fresh water or a cooler so employees can stay hydrated and revitalized.

Having a cluttered desk can drain employees. Invest in some good organization tools and keep table tops, desks and drawers as neat as possible. A clear space promotes a clear state of mind.

Incorporate enough movement into the day. Even a twenty minute walk after lunch boosts feel-good chemicals in the brain, which increases energy and focus.

To reduce eyestrain, use ample lighting and follow the 20-20-20 rule, which states that looking at something 20 feet away from a computer screen for 20 seconds every 20 minutes will reduce eye fatigue.
