The 10 best ways to stay healthy while working from home
In the past few months, people from corporate are now working from home due to health threats during this Covid19 Pandemic.While it should be easier to stay healthy while working from home, it's actually pretty challenging to get the work-life balance right. Too often, we end up working longer hours, and we forget to look after our bodies. So how do you stay healthy and thrive while working from home? Here's a rundown of our top 10 tips.
1. Keep a consistent sleep schedule
Never underestimate the importance of regular, high-quality sleep. Sleep is so important because it helps:
- Boost your immune system
- Lower stress levels
- Improve your mood
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Control blood pressure
The catch? Adults need at least 7 hours of sleep every night to enjoy these benefits. No matter how busy you are, stick to a regular bedtime and try to get up at the same time every day.
2. Know when to switch off from work
When you work from home, you might catch yourself checking your inbox at odd hours. But, remember, you deserve time to unwind. Once you've finished your work for the day, put down your laptop and forget about your to-do list until tomorrow.
You might find it helpful to create a designated "workspace" in your living room, kitchen, or study. Try not to work anywhere else and keep clear boundaries between your workstation and your relaxing spaces.
3. Avoid overworking
Are you feeling lethargic and unmotivated recently? You could be working too hard. Set aside some quality time for yourself to pursue your passions and add Oringaa Moringa Powder to your diet. This superfood helps to nourish a stressed mind and improve concentration. It's a must-have for any busy person striving for the perfect work-life balance.
4. Exercise daily
Whether it's yoga, running, or walking, make time for exercise every day. Adults should aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day to stay healthy, so step away from the computer and stretch your body!
Struggling to motivate yourself to move? Check out live exercise videos on platforms like YouTube. There's something for every fitness level, and there's nothing more motivating than an instructor cheering everyone on.
5. Eat regular meals
When you're at home all the time, it's tempting to skip lunch or throw an unhealthy, processed dinner in the microwave. But if you want to look, feel, and perform your best, you need to prioritize fresh, home-cooked food. And, for an added health boost, sprinkle our Moringa Powder through your casserole or protein shake.
6. Stay hydrated
Water is the most basic life source. We all need it to thrive, but be honest – do you drink enough of it? Probably not. But if you aim for 3 to 4 liters of water a day, you'll notice:
- Improved concentration
- Reduced bloating
- Clearer skin
- Don't neglect your water intake. Your body will thank you for it.
Something else you shouldn't neglect? Family time and quality time with treasured friends. Here are some fun ways to unwind together:
- Movie night
- Family exercise sessions
- Zoom or video quizzes
- There's something for everyone – don't forget to prioritize your loved ones.
It's easy to feel isolated when you're working from home. Reach out to coworkers, neighbors, and, of course, friends and family for support when you need it.
Here's a great tip: if you can, try to meet colleagues for a coffee or a workout at the gym. Not only will you get some fresh air and social interaction, but you can handle some work queries at the same time. It's a great way to multitask!
9. Look after your body
This one's so important. The better you feel inside and out, the more productive you'll be. Here are some quick ideas for easy self-care.
- Take a shower every morning to feel refreshed and revitalized.
- Wash your face with our Moringa Facial Wash for an extra healthy glow.
- Finish your morning routine with our Hydrating Moringa Face and Body Butter. Not only does it smell delicious, but the combination of peppermint and moringa leaves your skin feeling youthful and energized.
- Need an afternoon pick-me-up? Dab on our Moringa Oil to nourish your skin. It also doubles as a gentle but super effective makeup remover.
Our final tip is probably the most important of all. Now you have more time on your hands – because you're putting your laptop away and prioritizing self-care – why not build a new family wellness routine? We have an incredible range of products for the whole family, from organic Lavender Baby Lotion to Moringa Baby Wash.
