The office drawer wellness kit

When you’re flat out at home and at work, the last thing you need is a health setback to make it harder for you to get through the day. Look through this handy checklist and stock up on products that can help you stay on top of things.

  • Antibacterial wipes Research from the University of Arizona has found that in most work environments, personal cubicles have even higher bacteria levels than surfaces in common areas. The telephone was the top hotspot, followed by desks and computer keyboards. Wipe your area regularly with antibacterial wipes, such as Dettol Antibacterial Surface Cleanser Wipes.
  • Hand sanitiser Throughout the working day, you’re likely to be shaking hands with colleagues and touching common work surfaces. Germs, are spread through touch. Keep a sanitizer such as Dettol Instant Hand Sanitiser handy for those moments when your hands need a freshen up and you can’t easily get to the bathroom to wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Eye spray If you’re finding your eyes are tired and your vision blurred, you may be suffering from eye strain. Concentrating on a screen all day can dry out your eyes, made worse by the dehumidified atmosphere of an air-conditioned office. Taking regular breaks can help, as can changing your focus from your computer screen to the distance. Eye drops are great but not easy to apply when you’re at your desk. A spray-on product may be a better choice because it can be applied simply by spraying onto closed eyes.
