How To Master Work From Home Health
When first beginning to work from home, many of us collectively set lofty personal, fitness, maybe even professional goals thinking about how time at home would allow us to reach our best potential. Whether you set out to lose those last 10 pounds or learn how to play the guitar, working from home can provide many potential advantages for achieving personal goals. However, many struggle to maintain routine during this transition period which is critical to a healthy work-life balance, one of the most essential concepts for overall mental and physical vitality.
Whether you are transitioning back to the office or deciding to WFH permanently you may be facing a unique set of personal challenges. These new variables could be getting in the way of you attaining those goals you laid out. While right now it may be more appealing to lift a pint of ice cream than the set of weights in your garage, with time, practice, and the necessary resources, each of us has the tools necessary to become the master of our own healthy work from home routine.
The Key To Work From Home Success: Maintaining a Healthy Routine
Create a Separate Workspace
While it may be tempting to stay on your couch all day long answering emails, one of the most important steps to ensure productivity is to create a separate workspace that will inspire you to get up and get your day started. Try choosing a space with natural light, add some photos and decorations to the area, and make sure that the setup is ergonomic, meaning that the top of your computer screen is at eye level or a little below. If you plan to make long term arrangements for an at-home office consider investing in a standing desk, which can aid in productivity, lessen back pain, and even aid in calorie burn.
Dress for Success
Studies have shown that what we wear actually influences the outcome of our behavior. So, if you are struggling to focus at work, get up in the morning and dress in the attire that you would wear during a normal day in the office. Having a hard time getting motivated to exercise? Put on your running shoes as soon as you get out of bed. At first glance this may seem like unnecessary effort but this activity may provide the motivation that you need to develop habits that will improve your overall well-being.
Look Good To Feel Good
You are probably doing just about everything for everyone else right now. Make sure that you don’t forget to take care of you.

Take Time for Meals
Falling into the trap of mindlessly eating all day? Set timers for meals and make your food in advance to fight the temptation to snack all day as you work at your computer. By setting aside time for meals you’ll be more aware of what you are putting in your mouth, and enjoy these welcome breaks away from the screen.
Don’t Give Up On Your Goals
Goal-setting can help you establish new behaviors and provide a sense of direction. In situations that can seem rather out of control, goal-setting provides control back to the individual, allowing us to think about solutions to problems, our goals for achieving them, and then in turn how these goals will help us achieve our dreams. Start small by setting achievable daily tasks and keep track of these in a journal or on a vision board, so that you can prove to yourself that you are making progress every day towards your larger vision. If you have physical or fitness goals, learn more about how truBody can support you in achieving these with advanced fat reduction and muscle sculpting technologies.
