One of the biggest problems from working at home is inactivity.
Weight gain, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other chronic illnesses can all be linked to too much sitting. An easy place to begin: Simply start to move your body a little more at your desk.
Here are 3 simple yet effective exercises you can do at your desk :
1. Chair Squats
Stand up from your chair, lower your body back down, stopping right before you sit back down. (Keep your weight in your heels to work those glutes). Then stand back up again.
2. Calf Raises
Hold on to the back of your chair. Then lift yourself as high as you can on your toes. Hold for a few seconds, then release.
3. Wrist bend exercise
Hold the upper part of your hand with your other hand and slowly bend your. wrist down and then upwards until a stretch is felt at each extreme. Hold each for a slow count of 10. Repeat 3 – 5 times.
It may take some creative thinking and self-discipline, but it’s important for both your physical and mental health to remain active even when working from home.
