You spend most of the week at work, so it’s important to keep feeling healthy throughout the day. One of the easiest ways to make your experience more enjoyable is to feel at home with your desk by setting yourself up with the essentials.
Here are our picks to keep at the ready…
1. Water Bottle
It’s important to stay hydrated with water at work. Not only does it have the health benefits of preventing headaches, improving digestion and reducing fatigue, but it will also help your concentration and make you more productive. Having a water bottle on your desk will remind you to keep drinking and reach the recommended eight glasses a day!
Be considerate and prevent the spread of germs by having a box of tissues at your desk. They can also be useful to keep your desk clean or use as a serviette.
3. Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Concentrate
For every eight hours you work in an office environment, you lost up to half a litre of water in your skin due to the harsh air conditioning. Sometimes your skin works even harder than you, losing nearly 1/2 litre of moisture in a single late night at the office. To avoid the uncomfortable feeling of dry skin at work, use Clinique’s new supercharged moisturiser, which gives you a 179% moisture boost that is retained for 24 hours at 65%.
4. Healthy Snacks
It’s a great idea to keep some healthy snacks at your desk to help you get through the 3pm slump. Raw nuts like almonds are easy to store and will give you a good burst of energy, while peanut butter, healthy crackers and dried fruit can also be good options.
5. Hand sanitiser
It can be easy to pick up a cold in an office environment, but using some hand sanitiser every now and then can help keep you safe from the germs in the bathroom, on your keyboard and when you shake hands with other employees.
If you’re drinking tea or coffee all day, you can often face the feeling of fuzzy teeth. Keeping a toothbrush and some toothpaste at your desk will allow you to freshen up whenever you feel the need.
