Supplements and working at home
Working at home has a lot of advantages. Not needing to commute. Not needing to dress up for office. No need for spending a lot of money to eat in restaurants for lunch or dinner.
I still work at home majority of the time, preferring to stay in the comfort of my own place than brave the traffic on the way to the office, especially during rush hours. Being able to spend time with the kids and eat what I want when I want.
One thing most people overlook when working in an office is the involuntary exercise everyone gets. Involuntary exercise? “Walking or running around the whole day trying to get to where you need to go or do what you need.”
I don’t know if there is actually a term for that, but that’s the best way I can describe it, since you actually don’t want to exercise. Working at home, you usually don’t get involuntary exercise unless your mom or wife tells you to do something you don’t like…
So what do you do to at least keep you healthy or somewhere near it?
Take vitamins and supplements. There are a lot of brands out there in the market competing for the consumers attention and usage. One thing I look at is the ingredients in the supplement.
“The less you move, the less blood sugar your body uses; research shows that for every two hours spent on your backside per day, your chance of contracting diabetes goes up by 7 percent. Your risk for heart disease goes up, too, because enzymes that keep blood fats in check are inactive. You’re also more prone to depression: With less blood flow, fewer feel-good hormones are circulating to your brain.” source women’s health mag.
The are usually the following:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Colon cancer
- High blood pressure
- Lipid disorders
- Kidney stones
So taking vitamins and supplements to address these concerns is needed. I personally take Calcium Carbonate to help prevent osteoporosis., Vitamin C for my immune system, B-complex for energy and Circulan which has garlic oil which has lipid-lowering effect.
A healthy body is everyone’s best investment. So eat well, exercise either voluntary or involuntary, and take your supplements. So go visit your family doctor now.
