Here Are 6 Ways You Can Stay In Shape While Working From HomePosted in : General Articles on by : Simmi Iyer
Eat real food
One advantage of this lock down is that we are all eating home cooked food, so make each meal balanced. Have moderate carbs, adequate proteins, some milk product and lots of veggies. Eating nutritious food will impact your energy level and your productivity. It will also keep you from eating empty junk filled calories.
Precook meals when you are free, or at least do some prep like chopping, cleaning or making a lot of masala in one go. It will save you time and effort and when free, plus it is a good way to get the family together.
Drink a lot of water
You may forget to hydrate well leading to fatigue and headaches. Keep water at your table, there are better chances you will drink more. Try and drink more in between meals, and less with meals.
5. Go easy on the caffeine
Excessive intake of caffeine is known to be detrimental to health. 2-3 cups/day is adequate. Just because everyone is at home, you don’t have to join whoever is drinking a cup. While eating just do that. We are lucky to get this time with our families, so make mealtimes an opportunity to connect, even while working from home. Eating and working together does justice to neither. Eating at a dining table while using all your 5 senses improves digestion.
Use the time you are saving travelling to exercise indoors. YouTube has all forms of at home exercises – use this time to explore, try different things daily, involve your family. It is a good way to spend an hour.
