Long working days and stressful weeks quickly affect health - this is noticeable in various areas. Whether it\u0026#39;s a headache, low motivation, or shoulder and back pain, being overworked never has a positive impact. So that your health is not neglected even on long working days, you can change a few small things in your everyday life. We\u0026#39;ll show you how it\u0026#39;s done! Your start to the day - this is how you really wake up Either you\u0026#39;re a morning person or you\u0026#39;re not - at least that\u0026#39;s what most people think. But is that really true? There are people who get out of bed better in the morning and are then particularly fit and awake in the hours that follow. These people, who are particularly awake until noon, belong to the morning type, also called \u0026quot;lark\u0026quot;. If you belong to this chronotype, you are particularly productive and efficient in the first hours of the day. If you\u0026#39;re not that type of person, then it\u0026#39;s the afternoons and evenings that are the most productive for you. Which type you belong to is determined in your genes to a certain extent - but that doesn\u0026#39;t mean that you can\u0026#39;t change anything about it. You can promote your health before the working day by making various small changes. These include, among others: In order for your body to wake up, it needs light. Daylight with a high proportion of blue is needed for the stimulant hormone cortisol, so a wake-up light would be ideal for you Open a window and stand in the fresh air for a while. It will wake you up and do your health good before a long day at work If you stimulate your circulation in the morning, you will be more alert and your muscles will be awakened. A short movement unit of about five minutes is enough to make you fitter and more alert Your breakfast is essential for your working day and your health. It is best to use oatmeal, as it fills you up for a long time. They also contain a lot of fiber, which lowers your cholesterol level A glass of water after getting up works wonders. Before you leave the house, you should drink at least 250 milliliters of water With these tips, you can start the working day in a way that benefits your health. You are automatically fitter, more balanced and more motivated - without much effort. If you want to know more about health at work, just have a look at the desqup blogs ! Sitting or standing? – This is the best way to organize your working day Neither long standing nor long sitting is healthy in the long run - but which of the two is actually the unhealthier? This question can be answered quite quickly. Sitting is a kind of widespread disease in Germany. The average adult sits about 11.5 hours a day, much of that during the workday. Health suffers as a result, many illnesses and pains are caused by sitting for too long. When sitting, for example, poor posture and tension develop particularly quickly. Your back is hunched, and your neck and shoulders are often under constant tension. In addition, your muscles are at rest and your blood circulation is not stimulated. If you sit for too long, the risk of diabetes and obesity increases. When you sit, you tire much faster due to the poorer blood circulation and the inactivity of the muscles, the day feels longer and more strenuous. Over time, your stress tolerance also decreases and small tasks seem much more difficult. If bad light or dark days are added to this, everyday work becomes even harmful to your health. When standing, the effects are not as drastic. Health problems only arise here if you stand for a particularly long time (more than four hours at a time). Your muscles then tire and it can happen that, for example, a leg falls asleep or the soles of your feet hurt - but there are no really serious health problems like those that occur when sitting. Only if your weight is shifted too much to one side or if you adopt an unhealthy posture can there be health consequences. To ensure that your working day is optimal for your health, you should divide it up roughly like this: 50 percent sitting 40 percent standing 10 percent exercise This division is not intended to be held in one go. So always break it up into smaller sessions so that you don\u0026#39;t stay in one pose for too long. Experts therefore advise never spending more than 30 minutes sitting down, but also no more than 1.5 hours standing. You should always integrate movement breaks when possible. For example, get in the habit of making phone calls while walking or doing small errands on foot. Tip: Do you have a long drive to your place of work? Then park a little further away from the building from now on, so you have already accommodated a good exercise unit in the morning.
