Working from home does have its perks. But it’s easy to fall into the habit of sitting at your desk for hours. So, it’s essential to make time for breaks that help you move more or that help you relax.
Keep yourself charged
Online meetings and the thought that you must get this one thing done can stop you from drinking enough water and having something to eat. So, keep a carafe of water and healthy snacks on your desktop and keep yourself energized throughout the day.
Taking a break from your to-do list is beneficial to you and your work, it can do wonders for your productivity. Use an hourglass to create micro breaks and savour a stretch. Or take a walk. You’ll soon enjoy feeling and working better.
Listening to music while you work can put you in a positive mindset and help you be more productive and creative. If you’re missing company, use a Bluetooth speaker to switch from listening to a playlist to a podcast. Or keep your phone charged and nearby so you can stay connected to family and colleagues.
