When it comes to the office, there are a wealth of unhealthy habits that tend to dominate typical corporate etiquette. From big box takeout lunches to cookie trays to your cubicle-mates consistent stream of new cupcake recipes (and let’s not forget those ever-present candy dishes, somehow unnoticed by their owner but loved by you), it is HARD to stay healthy at work!
Enter office juice cleanses, as well as other forms of office bonding that encourage healthy behavior en masse. If we can’t beat ’em, let’s join ’em; if we are joiners then join something positive and beneficial! Whether it be a juice cleanse, a veggie of the month where colleagues share recipes, or even just committing to pre- and/or post-work walks, there are infinite ways in which coworkers can support one another in the quest for health and happiness.
Summer is the best time to get started on healthy eating – with the abundance of beautiful produce, availability of healthy fish and seafood, and the general sunny weather that keeps daylight way past the end of the workday, there are no excuses to eat poorly and stay cooped up inside.
