Wellness and Prevention for Isolated Jobs
Whether you are a seafaring mariner on a cargo ship or a telecommuter who enjoys a job with less structure, lots of alone time, and little contact with others, take an inventory of your health habits.
Isolated workers are at risk for sitting longer, skipping meals, suffering from substance abuse, eating more junk food, and having irregular sleep patterns. Greater incidences of heart disease, periodontal problems, alcoholism, kidney stones, and cancer are all potential consequences.
You may love the minimal structure of your position, but structure is good for people. Establish a routine so you not only are productive, but also remain healthy.
