How to stay active when working from home
If your job shifted to remote-only over the last year, have you found that you’ve been sitting a whole lot more? You’re not alone. People no longer have to travel as far to go to the bathroom or to grab lunch. They don’t have meetings in a conference room on another floor, and they don’t get out and about during a lunch hour to run errands. All in all, sitting at home may have kept us safer, but sitting at home means we are also just sitting a whole lot more. And if you’re sitting more, you’re also getting fewer endorphins, which means your mood may be suffering, too.
What’s going to happen is that sitting at home remotely for as long as you’re going to be means that you have to shift your mindset, too. You have to try to do more during the day so that you’re not mired in a bad mood, you’re not gaining weight, and you’re not losing muscle. This graphic has some ideas on how to stay active when working from home.
