The presence of workers at the workplace for long hours HAS PREVENTED THEM FROM finding enough time to practice regular sport activity in the before or after work hours.

So, these are some notes that can help keeping level of health at the work-place as optimal as possible:

  1. LEAVE your seat at least once every hour. Walk around the office or in the hallway.
  2. DRINK water.
  3. WHEN you leave your floor down to another floor, use the stairs.
  4. DURING the breaks you have, do not go to a place and just sit. Walk around the hospital.
  5. STUDIES have shown that those who excellent relations with their "neighbors" have less cardiac problems. Make sure you have good relations with the colleagues near your office.

Tips for relieving Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Symptoms

Four simple steps can help relieve some of the symptoms of BPH:
  1. Some men who are nervous and tense urinate more frequently. Reduce stress by exercising regularly and practicing relaxation techniques such as meditation.
  2. When you go to the bathroom, take the time to empty your bladder completely. This will reduce the need for subsequent trips to the toilet.
  3. Talk with your doctor about all prescription and over-the-counter medications you're taking; some may contribute to the problem. Your doctor may be able to adjust dosages or change your schedule for taking these drugs, or he or she may prescribe different medications that cause fewer urinary problems.
  4. Avoid drinking fluids in the evening, particularly caffeinated and alcoholic beverages. Both can affect the muscle tone of the bladder, and both stimulate the kidneys to produce urine, leading to nighttime urination.
