Tips for Working from Home

Work From Home

Many people are working from home these days. For some, they are used to it, but if this is something new to you, you may be experiencing some novel challenges as you adjust to your new routines and schedules. Or you may be experiencing new aches and pains as you adapt to your new work environment. 

Here are some suggestions to keep you productive while maintaining balance.

1. Maintain Regular Work Hours.

Just as you would to go work for a set time, be sure to create a schedule and keep to it. This will ensure having a healthy work-life balance.

2. Get Ready for the Day

Maintain a normal morning routine that is usual for you. Get up, take a shower, get dressed, have breakfast and so on. Wear designated work clothes and if you prefer to do your hair and make-up – then go for it.

3. Have a Dedicated Office Space

Create a space in your home to use as your office. Have a dedicated desk and work items that you only use for work. Be sure to set up the space as ergonomically as possible to avoid aches and pains in the neck and shoulders or back.

4. Take Breaks

Get up and move around and away from your work station. Let your mind recharge so you can focus on the tasks at hand. The added bonus of standing up will allow you to stretch and move, stretch your legs and back, helping to reduce pains that occur from prolonged sitting.

5. Exercise and Stretch Regularly

Regular exercise and stretching help to maintain a great posture. Ideally you want to stretch throughout the day to avoid becoming sore and affecting your quality of life. If your day allows, go for a walk on your lunch break or workout before your work day begins.

Valerie is a Physiotherapist and owner of Gage Physiotherapy and Foot Clinic . She believes that in order to take care of yourself, a holistic approach to treatment is required. She does this by looking at the whole person and assessing the biology, psychology and social elements that surround a person. Each element creates a unique dimension to the individual and affects how we function and respond to pain. Valerie focuses on helping people who desire to stay mobile and independent and have been let down by previous physiotherapy treatments, doctors or other treatments. She believes all active adults should have the confidence in knowing that their body can stand up to any task and stay mobile without the worrying of lingering injuries slowing them down.
