Working, commuting, taking care of family responsibilities, and everything else you do\u2014it all adds up, and it can be hard to find time for yourself.\u00a0 But the good news is this: Your workplace may offer opportunities to fit self-care into your daily routine.\nWork out \u2013 at Work!\nNo matter where you work, you can probably find a few programs or groups to help you in your quest for wellness. For instance, some workplaces offer discounted gym memberships. Sign up with a friend and encourage each other to achieve your fitness goals.\nIf the gym isn\u2019t your speed, there\u2019s always walking. Find out if your company offers a formal incentive program for achieving a step goal or see if there\u2019s an informal walking club (if there\u2019s not one, why not start it yourself?). Your lunch break can also be a daily wellness break if you decide to make it one.\nIf you have questions about full, in-network access to UPMC doctors and hospitals, please call our help line at 1-855-646-8762.\nFuel That Fits Your Goals\nSpeaking of lunch, how\u2019s your diet?\nInstead of hitting the vending machines during the dreaded afternoon slump, be prepared with fresh, healthy snacks, such as :\n\nWhole pieces of fruit\nNuts\nPlain popcorn\nYogurt\nRaw vegetables\n\nCoffee is okay too, in moderation, but keep in mind that flavored, frothy beverages can contain a lot of sugar and fat. And, don\u2019t forget to stay hydrated by drinking water throughout the day.\nIf your workplace has a cafeteria, find out if it provides healthy options. You might even qualify for a discount when you select the healthier meal.\nRELATED: 4 Brain Exercises for Your Daily Commute\nGet up and Go\nStuck at your desk all day?
