Staying Healthy in the Office: Working in Finance and Staying Fit

  1. 1. Staying Healthy in the Office: Working in Finance and Staying Fit When you work in finance, it’s easy to fall behind on your fitness goals. After all, you work a stressful job where you’re sitting at a desk for most of the day. However, just because you work in finance doesn’t mean that you have to abandon your health, fitness and wellness goals. Here’s how to work in finance and still stay fit.
  2. 2. Plan Your Days If you’ve gotten to a point in your career where you’re actually working in finance, then chances are that you’re a fairly disciplined person who knows how to stay organized. Yes, it can often be difficult to translate academic and career discipline into fitness and health discipline, but it can be done with some practice. One of the best ways to stick to your fitness goals is by planning. Create a workout schedule that you know you can feasibly stick to without failing. When it comes to your meals, actually plan out what you’re going to have for meals and snacks. If you’ve created an actual written plan, it’s easier to stay on track.

Furthermore, a lot of the corporate world lends itself well to lethargy. It’s common to take elevators instead of the stairs and to never have to walk more than a few steps throughout the day. Try to resist temptation at work. Again, this is why planning is so important. If you’ve brought healthy snacks to the office that fit into your meal plan, you’ll be less likely to snack on the unhealthy options in the kitchen. Try to take the stairs instead of the elevator whenever it’s reasonable. These little adjustments can have a big impact on your overall fitness. Use The Benefits and Perks Offered To You So many people working in finance have a whole host of fitness- related benefits and perks available to them, yet fail to ever take
