5 Ways to Stay Healthy While Working From Home 

Working from home sounds like a great gig. You get to sleep in, stay in your comfy clothes, and eat meals whenever you’d like… it’s the ideal job! However, while working from home presents many benefits and perks, it can also bring many mental, physical, and social challenges. 

It’s essential to maintain your health and wellness while you’re working from home! Without setting boundaries or maintaining a healthy routine, you may have extreme difficulty managing distractions, feeling lonely, avoiding burnout, and staying physically fit. Here are some of our top tips for staying healthy while you work from home! 

Stay hydrated 

So, if you’re like me and you can’t go without your morning coffee, then that’s okay! But drinking plenty of water every day can help keep your energy levels up, improve your mood, and most importantly keep you hydrated. Try to stay away from sugary soda drinks and focus on drinking at least 2 liters of water throughout the day to boost your health. 

Make time to exercise 

If you work from home, it can be easy to fall into the leisurely work-day trap. Make sure you carve out time to exercise in some way, shape, or form every day. Take a 30-minute walk around your neighborhood between work calls, hit the gym before the workday starts, or try an at-home workout on your lunch break! Scheduling exercise into your workday can boost your mental health, creativity, and can lower your stress levels by leaps and bounds! 

Stick to a morning routine 

What did your morning routine look like when you had to commute to work? Many people who start working remotely find it easier to abandon their morning routines and just roll out of bed and onto their computers. A fantastic way to improve your health and wellness is to keep a morning routine every day! Now, your morning routine doesn’t have to look the same as it did before, but reserving time in the morning to shower, put yourself together a little bit, and maybe drink a cup of coffee or meditate before you start your work day can really boost your productivity and just help you feel refreshed! 

Have a neat office space 

One thing that can easily cause stress is a messy and cluttered workspace. Dedicate a certain spot or room in your home for a comfortable and organized office space. This will help improve your mental focus and allow you to have a space that is dedicated to working that you can leave and come back to when you need a break. Try to keep your work life in this area and separate it from your personal life, that way you can build the boundaries you need to mentally detach and relax when your work day is over. 

Make social connections 

One of the biggest difficulties when working remotely is being able to connect with co-workers. At the office, it’s easy to make friends and socialize with your co-workers, but at home, you may experience feelings of loneliness, isolation, and disconnect. Prioritize your social health and make time to meet with your co-workers outside of work!
