10 Ways to Make Your Workplace Healthier

Having a happy and healthy workplace can increase productivity and moral. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ American Time Use Survey, people spend nearly nine hours on work-related activities during their day. With so much time spent at work, it goes without saying that a positive work environment is vital to your wellbeing. Below are 10 tips on how to make your workplace more positive.

  1. A happy employee is a productive employee. People who enjoy their jobs are likely to engage more thoroughly with their work.
  2. Keep the Office Clean and Organized. Adding plants can help create a pleasant environment as they’re both visually appealing and help clean the air.
  3. Get healthy. Encourage yourself to get healthy. Join a gym or take a walk during lunch. Reduce the amount of unhealthy foods and snacks you eat throughout the day.
  4. Stay home when sick. Enough said.
  5. Team building. Keep relationships within the office healthy by scheduling teambuilding activities.
  6. Be positive. Present an attitude of positivity and approachability.
  7. Have a good work and life balance. Don’t let work be your number one priority.
  8. Bring your pet to work. A growing body of evidence suggests that pets in the office can have positive health benefits.
  9. Lighting. Proper lighting is essential for a healthy work environment. Natural light is best.
  10. Relax. Take a deep breath.
