A recent article, 5 Tips to Stay Healthy While Working from Home By Heike Young says that working from home is awesome—it saves you from traffic and gives you more concentration on work.  However, you need to adjust your routine to stay fit when you prefer a home office lifestyle. 

Here are a few tips for staying healthy while working from home full time or spending some of the time in a shared office space.

Eat nutritious foods.

Ensure that you eat at a regular interval– don’t starve yourself until you can’t function.  You can be more focused and creative if you maintain a stable blood sugar level by eating nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables, bread and pure dark chocolate for a sweet treat.

Exercise regularly.

Daily exercise keeps you fit and healthy, so spend some time to work out at your most convenient time.  It could be in the morning before you start working, or during lunchtime or a late afternoon. The objective is to make exercise a daily habit.

Get enough sleep.

Ensure that you get enough sleep — 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 dynamic  and efficient all day long.

Take a break.

Take a walk, catch up with friends in a coffee shop or take a lunch to a nearby restaurant.  Taking a break will boost your productivity and revitalize your energy and mood.
