© Maaike Oude Geerdink This is how you create a healthy workplace
If you have a desk for yourself, it is easy to impose anything that does not belong there. From a candy jar to piles of paper. And before you know it, it's a mess. A tidy environment that exudes tranquility. But there are a few other things that can improve your health at the office.1. Adjust your screen
It is almost impossible to dodge your computer and smartphone at work. But staring at a screen for eight hours or more is not exactly good for your eyes, neck and posture. Therefore adjust your screen. Make the font larger so that you don't have to squeeze your eyes. Reduce brightness and adjust your screen to the correct height.

A simple way to improve your health at the office is to adopt a good posture. If you have the luxury of an adjustable desk, stand for a few hours and alternate with sitting again. If you do not have this, make sure your office chair is properly adjusted.3. Invest in a water jug ??
Or in a reusable water bottle. But make sure it is on your desk so that you drink enough in one day.4. Set a timer
Whether it is a reminder of your digital agenda or an alarm on your telephone, set a timer every hour. This reminds you to get up from your desk.5. Nutritious snacks
Working requires energy. Make sure you bring nutritious snacks to the office, such as nuts or dried fruit. Of course a cookie is also good in its time, but because of the sugars and few nutrients, it will not take away your hungry feeling.6. Clean up every day
Here we do not mean that stack of paper that is 'neatly' on the corner of your desk at the end. Also, wipe your screen, keyboard, mouse and desk with a clean cloth every day.
