All Remote Workers Should Do These Four Things To Boost Their Overall Wellness

Working remotely presents a unique set of challenges to one’s physical and mental health. While you have the advantage of avoiding unhealthy foods found at office celebrations — not to mention, you can get up and move around more often — there are other unhealthy habits that can quickly pose a problem. A lack of healthy work-life boundaries and unlimited opportunities to snack from the pantry are just a few challenges that remote workers face on a daily basis.

 

If you’ve been feeling a bit sluggish of late, there are strategies you can use to be as healthy as possible. Ultimate Combat Training Center shares the top four things that all remote workers should do to boost their overall wellness.

 

Set clear boundaries between your work and living spaces.

 

When you work in an office, your workspace and living space are clearly defined for you. However, when you are working from home, this line can quickly become blurred. If you decide to work from the kitchen one day and then from your bedroom the next, it is much more challenging for your brain to shut off at the end of the day. This can cause both stress and anxiety, even when you are finished working.

 

To help you switch off more easily, set clear boundaries between your work and living spaces. Protect the energy in your home by choosing a designated “office,” and only work from that single location. Also, if the energy in your home has started to feel off or negative, you may experience a downturn in your work. To improve the energy of both your working and living spaces, take an afternoon to clean, organize, and declutter to reduce tension and re-set your focus.

 

Fill your home with healthy foods that you love.

 

With your office located steps from your kitchen, healthy eating may be one of your biggest challenges when working remotely. Rather than only having access to what you brought to the office — or having to order expensive takeout — you can now make endless trips to the fridge and pantry. And if you tend to stock up on chips, desserts, and other junk food, your diet may not be as healthy as you’d like.

 

To remedy this, start stocking up on healthy foods that you love. The key is buying foods that are high in nutrients that you know you will eat, rather than ones that you think you should eat. When there is no junk food in your home, it is much easier to make healthier choices throughout the day.

 

Create and follow a consistent fitness routine.

 

Working remotely gives you added flexibility when it comes to your fitness routine. Instead of being stuck at an office (and in rush hour) for 9+ hours every day, you can work out at home and in your neighborhood on your lunch break. Alternatively, you can use the time you’d spend commuting to go to your local gym.

 

If you don’t work out regularly, now is the time to create and follow a consistent routine. Whether it’s taking a walk during your lunch break, attending an online fitness class, or trying a martial arts class at the Ultimate Combat Training Center, be sure to use the flexibility of your workday to your advantage.

 

Take your “office” to a new location.

 

If you need a change of scenery, consider taking your “office” on the road, like to a local vacation rental for a working vacation. Working from a rental property can help you decompress more easily by enjoying amenities (e.g., a pool, hot tub) you probably don’t have at home. If you desire an even more enjoyable working vacation, consider splurging on a place that has luxury amenities.

 

Being smart about working remotely can do wonders for your health. Not only will you enjoy the flexibility of location independence, but you can also look and feel better than you ever have before!
