Did you know that Canadians spend almost 2,000 hours on the job each year? For many people, work is literally a “home away from home.”
Given all this time that we spend at work, and commuting back and forth, the food and physical activity choices we make during work time can have a huge impact on our health and wellness.
The good news is that healthy, active living can easily become part of your work day.
Planning is the Key
By making advance plans for healthy eating and active living during work hours, you can improve your fitness and health. Plan to:
- Stock up on healthy snack foods
- Bring brown bag meals that pack a nutritional punch
- Make healthy eating and active living a priority at home and at work
