Healthy Habits For Working From Home
Dated: March 9 2021
Your New Morning Commute…
Working From Home
We all know working from home can be both a blessing and a curse. Gone are the days of commuting to the office, sitting in bumper to bumper traffic, listening to the weather guy on the radio ( Podcast for you younger kids! ) and just mentally preparing yourself for work. Now, for the majority of us, working from home requires willpower and developing loads of healthy habits to stay on top of work and balancing home life that you may never leave.
So here are some healthy habits to start implementing into your work life at home.
1. Make a routine and keep it! It might be hard at first but stick to it. You need to train your brain to be in work mode. This routine needs to be done everyday to make it stick. Don’t go crazy or anything but make it obtainable! Set your alarm to the same time….even if you stay up late to watch the Super Bowl.
2. Let the sunshine in! Vitamin D you receive from the sun is a very important vitamin you need for a healthy well - being. So why wouldn’t you pull back those curtains & let mother nature keep you healthy mentally and physically?
3. Keep moving! Did you know they say ( startstanding.org ) “Sitting is the new smoking!” It’s super easy to be stuck sitting for hours working on a deadline behind your computer. Research shows that you can reduce your chances of cancer, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and back pain just by reducing the amount time you sit. So set an alarm on your phone and get up and move every hour. Try placing your laptop on a kitchen countertop to allow yourself to stand while working. You will be surprised how much more comfortable you will be and watch your creative juices start flow!
Creating healthy habits for your work from home life can be difficult, especially if you’re just starting out, or things have gotten out of hand but the cheerleader in me says, “ You Can Do This!” Plus, your heart will thank you for it later.
