Causes of Acidity and Ways to Prevent it in the Workplace

January 02, 2014 Jim Couch

Sitting for long hours in the office can create acidity in the body, which no one likes! Acid reflux, or acidity, is the backward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus and can cause heartburn or other symptoms.

Top Causes of Acidity:

- Eating large meals or lying down after meals

- Being overweight or obese

- Snacking close to bedtime

- Eating certain foods or combinations of food- citrus, tomatoes, garlic, onions, spicy foods

- Smoking

- Taking certain medications

Tips for Preventing Acidity in the Workplace:

- Stand up or take a short walk every 30 minutes

- Watch your posture- don’t slouch, sit in a chair with back support, and keep your knees level with your hips by keeping heels on the floor

- Walk to colleagues rather than emailing them

- Walk to the farthest restroom possible, if multiple restrooms are an option
