Ways to Stay Healthy While at Home

Staying healthy at home during these uncertain times can be a challenge. With gyms being closed and outdoor activities being limited, we can oftentimes start to sink into our work from home routines.

It's difficult to find balance in our day-to-day lives but following a few simple steps now can help us in the long run.

Continue reading below to learn about how you can stay healthy while staying at home.

Build A Routine

 Believe it or not, having a schedule and routine while working from home is more important than you think. It's easy to get caught up in little tasks around the house while you're trying to get work done. Time flies when we're trying to get things done, and before you know it, it's dinner time. A good way to build a routine for when you're at home is to start with what is most important. Make a list and write down everything that needs to be completed in the day and then begin to divide tasks by level of importance.
While doing this, make sure you are scheduling in breaks, time for food, family time, call a friend, go for a walk, listen to music and other self-care. 

Do Quick Workouts

 Working out at home doesn't need to be difficult or expensive. Did you know, there are ways to conveniently and efficiently workout from home. All you need is 30 minutes, a few weights, a little area in your home and some good music! A few adjustable dumbbells can go a long way at home. They're easy to use, store, and cost-effective. You can even work out while at your standing desk! Simply use a walking pad and get those steps in while you attend your Zoom meetings. 

Eat Good Food

 It's easy to fall into the habit of eating whatever is quick and easy while we work from home. Some days we don't have time to cook, and other days the junk food drawer is only a few steps away from us. Working from home is all about finding balance. Enjoy your chips and chocolate but also make room for the fruit smoothies and avocados. We focus more when we start to realize that nutritious food is the fuel we need to keep going.

Sleep Well 

We can often overwork ourselves, causing our bodies to go into overdrive. We forget the importance of sleep and recharging our bodies. We are working each day, whether we're at our desk, or taking care of the kids, cleaning, making food and many other day-to-day tasks. We are constantly using our energy, it's only right we take care of ourselves and have a good night's sleep. Helpful ways to get ready for bed is to try to get into bed early, put your phone away, read a book or create another selfcare routine that works best for you!
