How to Lose Weight While at Work?

 

Admit it, spending most of our time in the office is definitely a surefire way to pack some excess pounds.  If you feel that your office job is giving you extra fat on your bellies and making you feel heavy, chances are, you’re right! So how do you lose those ugly flabs? Follow these helpful habits:

 

1. Prepare Your Lunch – Restaurants and fast-food chains often serve large portions and high calorie meals. You can eat healthy and save money if you pack your own lunch.

 

 

2. Drink Lots of Water – Water keeps your mind off soda and coffee. It may also help you fight off food cravings in the afternoon, because water keeps you full.

 

3. Always Have a Fruit on Your Desk – Instead of eating chips, cookies and donuts when you are hungry, eat fruits like apples and bananas.

 

 

4. Avoid Sugary Food and Candies – They taste good, but they don’t satisfy your hunger and are not digested quickly so they stay where you don’t want them to be – inside your body!

 

5. Stand As Much As Possible – Standing, compared to sitting, is better because it is good for your back and burns more calories. Try talking to someone over the phone or using your computer while standing, you will feel better after an hour.

 

6. Take The Stairs – Skip the elevator and take the stairs every morning. This is a good cardio and leg workout, that will keep you all pumped up to face the day.

 

7. 8 Hours of Sleep – Getting enough sleep will prevent coffee cravings in the morning plus you will look fresh and radiant the whole day.

 

 

8. Do Not Email – If your officemate is just a few steps away, walk to his/her desk to ask something, instead of sending an email. You will enjoy having a quick chat and at the same time you will get to move around a bit more. Use every possible opportunity to burn calories.

 

9. Park to Walk – Choose a parking spot furthest away from the office. This will force you to add extra steps throughout the day.

 

 

10. Inspirational Quote/Photo – Put on a health and wellness quote or an inspirational photo on your desk to remind you of your fitness goals.

Is Your Officemate a BULLY? Here are the signs

 

Bullies in the workplace come in different shapes and sizes. You’ve probably dealt with the most common ones who are aggressive and intimidating. However, there are also bullies that are very passive and quiet, while others take it to the extreme – acting good and pretending to be your friend and then stab you at the back when you least expect it.

Workplace bullies in the Philippines aren’t as talked about but they exist. In fact, most employees in the country may not even be aware that they are already being bullied because they think it’s just part of the office culture or worst, part of their jobs.

Are you being bullied by an officemate? If you tick all the boxes below, then you most certainly are:

 

  1. Gives you wrong information/data
  2. Excludes you in important meetings/conversations/events
  3. Makes fun of your work
  4. Makes fun of you as a person (including your gender, sexuality, race or culture)
  5. Tampers with your belongings, lurks around your desk
  6. Talks behind your back
  7. Ignores your comments and suggestions
  8. Spreads malicious gossips about you
  9. Embarrasses or shames you in public
  10. Blames you for their own mistakes or faults
  11. Steals credit for your work
  12. Threats about your job security without any basis

 

Their ultimate goal: To put you down, and build themselves up. If you think you think you are being bullied by an officemate, then it’s time for you to fight! Watch out for our next article because we will be giving you tips on how to deal with bullies in the workplace.

How to Answer: “Why Are You Leaving Your Current Company?”

In the first of our ongoing interview questions and how to answer them series, we’ll take on the top question on every interviewer’s mind whenever they see an applicant that’s still connected to their present company.

Question: WHY ARE YOU LEAVING YOUR CURRENT COMPANY?

Why interviewers ask this question? It is common to seek for new opportunities while still employed, but doing so could raise red flags and questions on the interviewer’s mind. Are you leaving for a good
reason? Are you leaving voluntarily? It’s best to have a solid answer just in case you encountered this question on your next interview.

The most important thing when they ask “Why you are looking to leave your current job” is to stay positive and never badmouth.

How do you sound positive? Rather than complaining or talking badly about your current situation, say that you’re looking for more of something.

Is your current boss a power tripper or lazy? Say that you’re looking for an environment with more leadership you can learn from.

Dos:

– Sound positive and focus on what you want to gain by making a move
– Show gratitude for your current job
– Sound like you’re ambitious, motivated, and eager to find the next challenge in your career.

Don’ts :

– Badmouth your boss current employer in any way
– Sound like you’re trying to escape a bad situation, or you’re failing or not fitting in at your current job
– Say you’re struggling or failing to perform the work
– Say it’s too difficult or stressful
– Never lie.

Good sample answers:

“I’m looking for more leadership opportunities. I’ve been at my company for three years and have really enjoyed the experience but I feel in order to take the next step in my career, it’d be helpful to join a larger organization and use what I’ve learned in the past to lead more projects. That’s why this
Project Manager role excited me.”

“I have decided to shift from admin to marketing, because marketing is my passion. I love interacting to all kinds of people and I have creative ideas that will surely contribute to the growth of the company. I know that not only will this new career be more natural for me, but I will also enjoy it. If you hire me, you will be able to see the difference I’ll bring within a very short period.”
