Seventh, don’t spend your lunch break at your desk. A quick walk around the block is more energizing than the cup of coffee and chocolate bar we crave during that afternoon slump. And don’t forget to sit up straight! A big cause of back and neck pain is poor posture at the desk. Even better, every hour or so, take a quick stroll around the office ending with a couple of deep stretches.
Healthy and happy employees make productive, long-term employees. If you have a specific need, such as a private place to pump if you are nursing or a flexible schedule, don’t hesitate to speak with your boss. Be factual and clear, laying out how you envision your plan working. Odds are, he or she will be willing to hear you out and you’ll love your job even more.
