For all those who spend good 9 hours of their day/night at work like me, maintaining beauty and fitness is a bit of a challenge. When you are constantly hungry while working and have no one to stop you from hitting the pantry to access all the yummy chocolate doughnuts and muffins, you’re sure to have skin breakouts and some extra flab around your waistline. To keep fit and beautiful, here are few things you wanna know I keep in my office drawer:
WATER BOTTLE: Every office keeps those small paper cups near the water dispensers. However, we get so engrossed in our work or lazy at times to walk up to the dispenser and get ourselves that tiny cup of water. We do not realize that our body and skin needs 4 litres of water to look fresh, wrinkle free and glowing. Therefore, putting a nice bottle in your drawer always helps.
GREEN TEA: Green Tea is known for its slimming effects and making the skin glow. I always keep a pack of green tea bags in my drawer and have atleast 2 cups at work.
MUG: I like to use my own mug for green tea since I do not find the paper cups sufficient for the quantity I like to have.
PEANUT BUTTER: Snack time is when you are more vulnerable to having all sorts of fattening food. So when hunger strikes. I get my peanut butter jar out of the drawer and spread it on the brown bed available to me at work. If you do not have it available in your office, you can pack a few slices everyday to avoid the unnecessary snacking.
SPOON: I always keep a spoon in my drawer- for peanut butter, honey or ice-creams/desserts when I think I can take the liberty to binge in. It’s allowed once in a while! Don’t you think so!
CHOCOLATE: When you’re super sleepy and have loads of work piled on, a small piece of chocolate will keep you awake. You can also keep a bar of dark chocolate in your drawer instead of the regular one. It’s lot more healthier.
ALMONDS: 3-4 almonds a day when you’re really hungry is always a healthy option. Put them in a cute box and place it in your drawer. They are great for your skin and body.
SANITIZER: Typing on the keyboard used by 10 different people or shaking hands at work and touching your face with your fingers carelessly leads to breakouts/ skin infections and health issues. Place a small yummy smelling bottle in your drawer (I like the strawberry one) and keep sanitizing your hands frequently.
PAPER NAPKINS: Needless to stay, these are a must must-have.
MIRROR: A girl’s best friend, mirror is very important to keep your makeup in check. Carry it in your bag or place it in your drawer. It’s upto you.
NOTEPAD & PEN: Times when you are free at work and want to write down all the pretty things you gonna shop after your shift or pen down your ideas, you’ll always need a notepad and a pen. Don’t forget to put them in your drawer.
Lastly, make sure you lock your drawer before your move away from your desk. You don’t want anyone to flick your fitness secrets Happy Working!
