How You Can Stay Active While Working From Home?

Due to the ever-changing situation today, the world around us is quite volatile. Shutting down of malls, shopping centres, public gatherings and mass events have left us all in a state of turmoil, uncertainty and anxiety.

There are hundreds of thousands of people, perhaps millions, taking precautions for the health of themselves, and others around them. The biggest way to ensure this is to self-quarantine, or by practising social distancing. A majority of the population of the world today is currently working from home.

As shared by Decathlon, here is how you can stay active throughout the WFH period.

1. Plan out your agenda for the whole day

Spending time in the morning figuring out what you'll do during the entire day is good for the long run. This is a great work-from-home exercise routine, more specifically exercise for the mind.

Let yourself be flexible and let your agenda change if you need it to.

This schedule should outline every assignment that you’re planning on doing. If you pre-plan from the day before, you wake up the next day to get started on it with a fresh mind.

2. Keep a Fixed Routine to Follow

There should be some healthy habits while working from home, such as creating regular rituals for yourself. Although you are working from home, just treat it as a normal day at work.

You can and set a constant wake up time in the morning and plan your office work accordingly.

Do your office work with fixed break intervals, in which you can refresh your mind by activities like brisk walking or get out from your room/workspace to get some fresh air outside.

3. Play indoor games

It is known that a clear, stress-free workplace leads to higher productivity. One of the successful work-from-home exercise routines (mental exercise) involves playing games such as carrom or chess.
