Find your energy again
1 ________
The offices that most of us work in aren’t the most healthy places in the world. If you work in a building that is more than 50 years old, it may not be perfectly designed for the office environment but it is probably healthier than one built recently. Even the best designed of today’s offices represent an artificial environment where it can be difficult to stay positive and bursting with energy.
2 ___________
Complaints about feeling tired, no energy, no interest in food, headaches and backache are commonplace. Office workers often say that these health problems are the inevitable consequences of working in an office. However, this is not the case. While there may be little you can do about the ever-ringing phones or the tempers of your colleagues, you needn’t feel unwell. There is plenty you can do to restore those energy levels and feelings of well-being.
3 ___________
The first thing you must address is tiredness. If at the weekend you stay up all night dancing or going to dinner parties and sleep all the following morning, you can’t expect your body to adjust on a Monday morning to a completely different routine. Some people seem to keep this lifestyle up without any trouble but for most of us it isn’t a good idea.

4 ___________
Our diets are another way we mistreat ourselves. Many office workers say they don’t have breakfast — but you really should eat something, however small, before you leave the house. And if you’re busy over lunch or have to go shopping, it’s possible to forget that too. So you get to the evening and suddenly realise how hungry you are. This is a disastrous way to manage (or not manage) your diet. Nothing is more important than eating and drinking regularly.
5 __________
You should also do a session of exercise once or twice a week in the evenings. This will help you to get to sleep and wake up refreshed in the morning. Recent American research has established that regular, vigorous exercise is a good way of improving your mood and that the effects last far longer than the session itself. It does have to be vigorous though -walking or tennis have to be kept up for at least an hour to have a positive effect.
6 ___________
All the advice on exercise says that you should choose something which you like doing. To this, many people reply: but I don’t like doing any form of exercise! Most people start off with the intention of exercising but soon lose interest. The answer here is you must do it until you get so used to doing it that you miss it when you don’t do it. In order to motivate yourself, you need to keep reminding yourself of the advantages.
If you’re working in an office with no natural light, you should go out for a walk for at least half an hour a day, even when the weather is dull and rainy. The importance of spending some time in daylight is often ignored. We now know that lack of sunlight can cause depression. It is, however, something that needn’t happen because it can easily be overcome.
8 ___________
You may be bothered by some of your colleagues’ bad temper or lateness. Think about how their behaviour influences your own state of mind and remember that you don’t need to behave in the same way. You are much more likely to enjoy your evening or weekend if you leave work feeling positive and it’s the same for your colleagues.
