As you guys know, I have been working from home for a few months now. I am absolutely loving it but there are some things I have to be careful about because I want to stay healthy. I feel like it’s easier to be unhealthy at when working at home. That’s why I decided to share some tips on how to stay healthy while working from home. I hope this helps anyone else working from home or hoping to work from home.
Working from home definitely has its perks- you can take care of your work while taking care of your kids, you don’t have to worry about commuting, etc. However, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind to stay healthy while working from home. Here are a few tips on how to stay healthy while working from home:
1) Get Up And Move Around Every Few Hours
Just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean you should be glued to your chair for hours. In fact, it’s essential to get up and move around every few hours to keep your body healthy.
One way to stay active while working from home is to take breaks for short walks around your neighbourhood. This will help you get some fresh air and sunshine and give you a chance to stretch your legs and get your heart rate up. If you have kids, take them with you on your walk and turn them into a family activity!
Another way to stay active while working from home is to set up a makeshift gym in your living room or basement. This can be as simple as putting a yoga mat down on the floor and doing some basic stretches or bodyweight exercises (which is what I do). You can also use resistance bands or dumbbells to add some variety to your workout. And, if you have kids, they can join in on the fun too!
2) Get A Standing Desk
If you’re working from home for an extended period, it’s essential to invest in a standing desk. A Standing Desk will allow you to stand up while you work, which is much better for your posture and overall health.
There are various standing desks on the market, so take some time to find one that fits your needs and budget. You can also make your own standing desk by placing a bookshelf or table against a wall and using it as a makeshift desk.
3) Eat Healthy Foods And Stay Hydrated
Just because you’re working from home doesn’t mean that you should let your healthy eating habits slide. In fact, it’s even more important to eat healthy foods and stay hydrated when you’re working from home because you’re more likely to reach for unhealthy snacks when they’re within easy reach.
To make sure that you’re eating healthy, make sure to stock your kitchen with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and healthy snacks. And always have a water bottle handy to stay hydrated throughout the day. This is what I have the hardest time with, I feel like I’m always slightly dehydrated but I’m working on drinking more water.
It is also essential to avoid snacking on unhealthy foods and drinks while you’re working. This can include things like candy, cake, cookies, chips, and soda. Not only are these foods unhealthy, but they can also lead to a sugar crash that will make it harder for you to focus on your work.
Working from home has its perks, but it is essential to stay healthy while doing so. By following these tips, you can ensure that you stay active, eat right, and hydrate. This will help you stay healthy and productive while working from home.
