Don’t Sit Too Long – Stretch Those Legs
When COVID-19 arrived, many of our lives were turned upside down. Tens of thousands of people suddenly became remote workers. Good ergonomic habits, on the other hand, are important in any situation, but it’s extremely difficult in this pandemic. It’s critical, though, that you pay attention to your body and what it’s trying to tell you. I’ve discovered that you can’t be productive when you’re in pain. The goal is to maintain good posture.
While working from home, I’ve found that it’s crucial to ease the body into sitting for lengthy periods of time and to provide appropriate support. Sedentary behaviour could have far-reaching consequences that go beyond physical health. Sitting consumes less energy than standing or moving. I’ve discovered that even small movements have a big influence. Standing up every 30 minutes or using a standing desk will help you burn more calories, which can help you lose weight and gain energy.
Remote work is here to stay, thanks to the advancements in technology. Many of these basic improvements can be used in both the office and at home. The most important thing is to look after your body by following these basic tips. Take care of yourself my friend.
You may not have time for an all-inclusive vacation or all of life's comforts, but that doesn't mean you can't prioritize your health. Do not let stress take hold, remember you can't pour water from an empty cup. Keep connected and take care of yourself first my friend.
