Our surroundings have a direct link to our lives. Since we spend 40 or more hours at our jobs weekly, it is essential to your health and longevity that your place of work is as conducive to wellness as possible. These are just a few ways you can integrate health into your workplace.
It is very important for your health that you enjoy your work and it has meaning for you. With that in mind, it is also important to consider the health risk factors that may be included in your job description. People in certain professions have a tendency to live longer than average. In studies carried out by the life insurance industry, it was found that symphony conductors and high-level company executives have a lower-than-average rate of mortality. Chinese surveys have found that artists, doctors, herb gatherers, and professors generally enjoy a lengthened life span. Contrarily, some industries cut your life short, especially those in which stress and work-related injuries are everyday occurrences, including agriculture, construction, fishing, forestry, manufacturing, mining, transportation, retail sales, and wholesale sales.
Fresh Air for Office Care
Energy-efficient standards of today require that modern office buildings be kept tightly sealed, in order to avoid temperature variations. This is one of the major contributions to the condition called "sick building syndrome," an ambiguous illness that affects the occupants of an unhealthy edifice. Carpeting, furniture, cleaning products, dry cleaning, insecticides, printers, and other products can give off unhealthy fumes, which trigger responses from the immune system that over time dull its, leading to premature aging. Circulate fresh air through your office by opening the windows early in the morning and late in the evening. These are the times of day that outdoor air is cleanest.
