long hours are being spent ‘sitting’ in front of a computer you have two things working against your overall health. The first and most obvious health detriment is the lack of physical activity. The second ‘diversion’ from a healthy living routine would be that the long hours likely disrupt your ability to eat right.

The irony is that most people have taken to working online to improve their quality of life and as a result may be putting their overall health at risk. So how can online entrepreneurs combine a healthy living lifestyle with the long hours and lack of physical activity associated with internet marketing?

Here are 3 tips that I use myself and have for years to help me ‘clear out the cow webs’ and protect my overall health when working online.

Know Your Food

Now do not get me wrong and feel you need to be fanatical about the contents of what you eat but you do want to pay more attention this area. We all know ‘junk food’ serves no good purpose other than to take up space in your stomach. Many argue how ‘convenient’ it is well consider how much time it takes to get dressed and go out and pick up your food. This could be time better spent marketing on the internet and by not needing to go out on a ‘food errand’ you can better maintain your focus.

It makes more sense from a time standpoint to select something you may already have in the home. Being you bought it you already know what it contains and makes it easier for you to eat right as opposed to ‘gambling’ with the ‘mystery substance’ you bought elsewhere.

Cook Your Meals

Most everybody is aware that any meal that comes ‘pre-prepared’ is loaded with all kinds of wonderful preservatives. Now it is my assumption that these type preservatives are generally best for the human body AFTER life has left it!

It is always best to cook your meals when you have the chance. Most people marketing on the internet work from home therefore the process of cooking a meal is made simple. This also allows for you to take a break from sitting in front of a computer giving you a ‘little’ more physical activity. In addition periodic breaks from looking at a computer screen helps reduce the eye strain you experience.

Make Time for Exercise

A daily routine of physical exercise is what you want to strive for and this can be considered a form of ‘therapy’ after sitting motionless for a period of time.

Now if you have never been in the routine of exercising this may be a little something you want to ease into. Select an activity or exercise that is most appealing to you and start there. Walking the dogs, doing yard work or perhaps even household chores may be a good start. Choose something and stick with it on a regular basis since you do want to take regular breaks from the computer.
