In a world where you can be anything, be kind

Many of us are now working from home for the first time. While this new working environment has a lot of positives (no commute, taking calls form the sofa) it can quickly lead to a sedentary life. It is important for both your physical and mental wellbeing to try and remain active when working from home. The House of Health and Wellbeing team have compiled the following tips to help keep you moving.

Schedule exercise into your routine

Many of us are now working from home for the first time. While this new working environment has a lot of positives (no commute, taking calls form the sofa) it can quickly lead to a sedentary life. It is important for both your physical and mental wellbeing to try and remain active when working from home. The House of Health and Wellbeing team have compiled the following tips to help keep you moving.

Do something every hour

Sitting down for long periods at a desk is not good for your health. Being sedentary for long periods of time can put you at risk of heart disease, diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure. Try and get up and do something once an hour to keep yourself moving.

Move as much as you can

Try and think of as many excuses as possible to keep yourself moving throughout the workday. Keep count of your steps and even taking calls on a short walk will help you keep your step count for the day up. Walking is great for improved mood, stimulating creativity and enhancing focus.

Do an exercise class

Here at House of Health and Wellbeing we offer a number of exercise classes which you can do at home during your lunchbreak or before you start the working day. Make a point of making these a part of your health and fitness routine.

Be resourceful

If you are not able to go to a gym, then there is still plenty that you can do from home. Many types of exercise such as yoga, sit-ups, push ups and Pilates can be done with no equipment at all. Be resourceful and make the most of what you have at home to start a new exercise regime.
