Working from home has been the norm for many of us since March 2020. While some companies have gradually started to reopen their offices, others are still following the remote work model. Whether you are working from home or going to the office a few days a week, it is essential to keep your health in check. Here are some tips on how to stay healthy while working remotely or in a hybrid work environment.

  1. Maintain the same sleep routine. While working at home, you might be tempted to stay up late and sleep longer in the morning. This can cause you to feel tired during the day and disrupt your sleep schedule. It is important that you follow your regular sleep routine as much as possible even when working remotely. If you wake up at 6 am every day, try to do so even when working from home. (If you have kids, this might not be practical). Similarly, avoid sleeping too late or taking naps during the day as they can lead to insomnia at night.
  2. Set up an ergonomic workspace. Working on the bed or sofa might seem like a good idea initially but can cause back pain or neck pain over time. Invest in an ergonomic chair and set up a workspace with a desk or table
  3. Take breaks often by getting out of your chair, going for short walks or doing simple stretches. Walking can help your body relax while stretching increases blood flow and allows your brain to absorb more oxygen which helps with focus and concentration.
  4. Have a healthy snack like fruit or nuts to stave off hunger so you can stay focused on work rather than food cravings. It’s also important to make sure you eat enough so that you don’t feel too hungry or light headed at work which can lead to poor decision-making or mistakes mostly because it affects focus, concentration, and energy levels. If you are working from home, drink water regularly as it is easy to forget to hydrate yourself when you are busy focusing on your work tasks.
