5 Ways to Stay Healthy at Home
While we would all probably rather that the pandemic had never happened in the first place, it did teach us just how much we can do from our own home – from working and studying, to socialising over Zoom and keeping fit.
And, with more and more companies moving to a remote working set up than they did in those hard to remember pre-pandemic days, you might find that you’re having to work a little harder to stay healthy – particularly if you used to walk to work!
If your company has moved to a work from home model, or even if you’ve just decided to embark on an online course in your free time, here are just five fantastic tips to help you stay healthy.
1) Take Time for Walks
An intense fitness regime isn’t for everyone, however, something as simple as taking a daily walk on your lunch break or after work can help you keep active and get you away from your desk.
You don’t have to take long walks either. In fact, just a brisk ten minute walk every day comes with numerous health benefits and can help contribute to a more healthy lifestyle.
2) Stock Up on Healthy Snacks
When you’re working from home, it can be much easier to find yourself wandering over to the fridge for a snack.
If you’re a regular snacker, consider stocking your fridge with fruit and vegetables, or your cupboards with lower calorie choices.
With summer on the horizon, you may even find the refreshing option of fruit more appealing anyway.
3) Take Charge of Your Schedule
Taking charge of your own schedule can help to improve your mental wellbeing and reduce your stress.
We aren’t all productive at the same time, so consider working flexibly to fit your more alert hours. Similarly, if you’ve chosen to advance your career through education, with distance learning providers such as Anglia Ruskin University, you’ll be empowered to set your own schedule, completing your assignments at a time that best suits your needs.
4) Let in the Fresh Air
While this isn’t as tempting during the cold winter months, as the weather starts to get a little warmer, open up the windows in your office to let in some fresh air.
When we work from home, we can find that our homes become stuffy, but a little fresh air can give you the boost you need and even help you concentrate.
5) Ask For Help
Staying healthy isn’t just about our physical well being, it’s also important for us to protect our mental health as well.
If you start to find that things are getting too much and the stress and anxiety are building up, then it’s important that you talk to someone.
With flexible services such as My Online Therapy, you can talk to licensed therapists at a time that best suits your day.
