Feeling out of sorts while you work from home? Everyone needs a little bit of structure to avoid going crazy. Here are 5 tips for a healthier work from home routine, to get back on track and achieve some sort of normalcy!
1. Drink your Weight in Water While You Work From Home
Drinking your weight in water is so important for your body and your weight loss journey!
Now with all of us stuck inside quarantining our lives away, I find myself stuck at my desk working and forgetting to drink water! Wild right? I know I am not alone. Nobody wants those pesky dehydration headaches that leave you crippled for the rest of the day. I recommend grabbing your Superfood Tabs tumbler (or any glass you have) and mark it every time you fill it up. This will help you keep track of your water intake!
2. Work Out for 30+ Minutes Each Day.
30 minutes is no time at all, when you have all the time in the world, right? I know that Tiger King has all you “cool cats and kittens” glued to your seats as the next episode loads….but STOP! If you don’t have a furry friend to pull you out of your slump, here is a friendly reminder: get movin’ with a stroll through your neighborhood. If you are a member of a gym, check to see if they are uploading home workouts like Equinox does with their Variis app. You got this! Don’t let a pandemic ruin your progress.
3. Stick to a Schedule While you Work From Home
When this is all over and it’s time to snap out of quarantine life, you don’t want the transition to be draining. Stick to the schedule you had before this all started. Even if that means waking up early, this is the perfect time to create the morning routine you always wanted! With the extra non-commuting time you have, take the time to make a nutritious breakfast, meditate, and center your mind for the day. Take some time in the morning to go for a run!
In the afternoon, schedule a time for lunch. If you schedule your meals to be at the same time, it makes it easier to work around your schedule. Without a schedule, it’s easy to lose track of time and end up working longer hours. Great for your company… but not always great for your mental well-being!
Commit to a schedule so you can take time for yourself when you need it.
4. Meal-Prep Your Lunches
Now that you have a schedule set, prep your work-week lunches. Take the stress off debating what to eat each day. Meal-prepping doesn’t mean all the magic and mystery is gone. You still have dinner left to make fun, spontaneous decisions. Meal-prepping your lunch will help you stay on a healthy mindset! Check out Pinterest for healthy, easy recipes. Find something that is low-effort and keeps you full until dinner.
5. Focus on Eating Whole Foods
Now that you’re meal-prepping, focus on making all those meals with fresh, whole foods. As tempting as it can be to crave all your comfort foods that make your belly sing, what you need now more than ever is essential nutrients!
Grocery shop for fresh salads, grains, and protein to feel lighter and happier than ever! Looking to keep it local? Research fresh product delivery services in your area. Dust off those cookbooks, and with each new delivery, dive into your recipe books! See what new recipes you can test out.
