More and more people are working remotely, often with great benefits. For example, studies have shown that shorter commute times are healthier for workers, as people who drive to work are more prone to anxiety and life dissatisfaction. However, there are still some downsides to working remotely when it comes to wellness. Fortunately, there are ways to mitigate these risks and be a happier remote employee. Here are five easy ways to have a healthy work-life balance.
1. Get Regular Exercise
Working remotely sometimes correlates to getting less physical activity, depending on what a person's schedule was previously. For example, someone who used to work on the fifth floor of an office building and regularly took the stairs, who is now only walking to the downstairs portion of his house, is getting a bit less exercise each day. Luckily, there are still ways to get exercise while working remotely.
If you are able to do so, take advantage of the privacy of home to complete short workout videos. Use the time during the day that you would have spent commuting to take walks around the block. You might even learn a new fitness activity, such as yoga. While it takes an adjustment to get into a new fitness routine, continuing to get regular exercise is extremely beneficial to physical and mental health.
You may also want to invest in home exercise equipment to facilitate your workouts at home. Be sure to check out unbiased product reviews before buying anything—there are tons of exercise products out there. You don’t want to waste your money on an inferior product.
