- Create a simple daily schedule
Include exercise, work, family, and relaxation. Stick to your schedule as much as possible and make your working, relaxing, sleeping, and waking hours as regular as possible. A stable routine helps you to find certainty even in times that may seem uncertain.
- Exercise regularly
Working from home gives you the opportunity to also do physical exercise in the hours saved, avoiding having to go back and forth from the office.
- Incorporate healthy meals into your eating routine
Eating healthy food gives your energy level a great boost. Junk food has the opposite effect and makes us feel sluggish.
- Create a good sleeping routine
It is challenging to disconnect when you work from home, and you often find yourself working well beyond bedtime. Set the alarm to start preparing for bed. When the right time strikes, stop doing anything else, turn off the lights, turn off the computer, take a warm shower, listen to relaxing music, or read a book.
- Maintain a correct posture and stretch
Sitting for a long time can strain your back and neck. Check the way you sit from time to time. To ease muscle tension, try taking a few minutes break every half an hour to get up and stretch.
- Pamper your eyes
To avoid looking at the screen for hours and over-straining your eyes:
- Take frequent breaks to look at distant objects.
- Make sure that the air from the fan and the air conditioning does not reach your eyes directly.
- Sit at a comfortable distance from the screen.
- Organize the workspace so that what you are looking at (screen or documents) is at eye level.
- Make sure you are working in a bright environment and adjust the screen so that there are no glares from other light sources
- Drink water
Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day to stay hydrated.
- Think positive
Try to find the positive aspects of working remotely. Think about how you can spend the time saved not having to go to the office doing the things you enjoy.
