A recent article, 5 Tips to Stay Healthy While Working from Home by Heike Young says that working from home is tremendously beneficial—it offers you flexibility, convenience and autonomy. Nevertheless, you need to adjust your daily routine to stay healthy and productive when you choose a home office lifestyle.
Here are four ways to stay fit while working from home.
1. Ensure to eat nutritious foods.
Make sure not to starve yourself until you can’t function, but instead eat at regular intervals to stay productive and creative. Foods like fruits and vegetables, bread and pure dark chocolate for a sweet treat are great to maintain a stable blood sugar level.
2. Make exercise a daily routine.
Make exercise your daily habit. Find a convenient time to spend some time to work out. It could be in the morning before you start doing your office tasks, or during lunchtime or a late afternoon.
3. Ensure that you get enough rest.
Set a daily schedule for work (as if you’re reporting for work in a team office space) so you can set a schedule for sleep. Make it a habit to go to bed at the same reasonable hour every night and wake up at the same time every morning. A good night sleep will keep you active and efficient all day long.
4. Take a break regularly.
No one should work for eight hours without taking a break–our brains and body need breaks otherwise we will get exhausted. Take a leisure walk with your pet dog, catch up with friends in a coffee shop or take a lunch to a nearby restaurant. Taking a break will improve your productivity and invigorate your energy and mood.
Following these simple tips will help you stay productive and healthy. However, working from home can be lonesome and boring, so finding a workspace where you can rent office space by the hour is helpful.
