3 Ways Living Green Can Help You Be Healthy at the Office

Living green is a global effort, but not many people are aware of all available incentives. Usually, the focus is on changing detrimental habits and buying expensive equipment, but the key really lies in education.

Look up the latest online; you can even book a free course to stay on top of green trends.

Let’s take a look at three easy steps to make your life greener straight away… especially at the office.

Helping You to Be More Mindful Overall

If you’re unfamiliar with lateral thinking, it’s time to consider changing your habits. Lateral thinking is, simply put, a manner of solving problems using an indirect and creative approach via reasoning that is not immediately obvious.

Basically, it’s a method to mindfulness, which is all the rage these days. Use a different approach to reach a green lifestyle, and remember that you can apply almost all of your learnings to both your home and work lives!

Staying Healthier

Eating healthier and walking or riding a bike to work can help the environment – not to mention your health. 

Stick to proper meals and – equally important – healthy snacks. Switch chips for fresh fruit and balance your diet. A healthy diet comprises fruit, vegetables, low fat dairy products, and whole grains.

Exercise regularly and don’t sit for too long. When working, schedule regular short breaks to take a walk and stretch your muscles. And don’t forget to always take injury recovery very seriously!

Taking Advantage of Federal Incentives

On to more specific matters, take advantage of federal EV incentives that have been set up to boost the green agenda. The credit varies between $2,500 and $7,500 depending on the battery capacity (at least 5 kWh). For every kWh of battery capacity in excess of 5 kWh, $417 is added to the credit.

Many large corporations are offering EV chargers for employees. However, if your office does not, there are multiple apps to help you find the closest options for you.

As you can see, it’s not that difficult to go green little by little and there are even some considerable material benefits involved. Take a step towards a happier life while helping the planet cope at the same time. Every little is a gain.
