Caring for your Wellbeing
As we all have to stay at home because of coronavirus (COVID-19), it's important to take care of your mind as well as your body. Here are a few links for more information.
Working from home? Here are some top tips
Many of you are working from home in what is most likely not ideal situations ergonomically. Most likely sat hunched on a sofa or sat on a dining chair. If you are lucky enough to have a home office have you assessed it for correct ergonomics. Lighting, laptop height or monitor height, chair position, ventilation.
It is therefore really important now more than ever that you take regular breaks to get up and move around for a few minutes, stretch and flex,simple hip opener movements, neck stretches.
Are you ensuring that you are drinking sufficient water? While you are home it is a great opportunity to increase your water intake and practice drinking between 2 and 3 litres per day. You will remain more alert and focused if you drink enough and it will help replace those snack cravings.
We can make some positive changes in our lifestyles right now by taking more care of ourselves.
