You spend a significant part of your life behind a desk. Desk jobs can be a blessing and a curse.

On the one hand, it’s nice to not be a roofer working on top of a skyscraper. But on the other hand, being tied to a chair is not without hazards, either.

The choices you make while there, in terms of health and wellness, are an important part of making sure you have a healthy lifestyle overall.

Research has shown that excessive sitting is bad for your heart, belly, brain and just about every other body part you can name.

When you’re not making healthy choices at work, it’s not just a health concern. Your productivity is probably suffering as a result as well.

There are small, easy ways you can change your lifestyle when you’re at work. You can incorporate these tips into your workday, and improve your health outcomes while boosting productivity.

The changes don’t have to be huge to have a significant effect. They can be minimal and incremental but have a very real impact on your overall health.

This infographic from Nifty Benefits shows some simple ways to change your habits at work which can have a very real impact on your overall health.
