Work from home is a daunting chore. Yes, it can be financially and emotionally rewarding especially if you know how to manage your time well.
But whether you are managing your own home based business or taking on different home based jobs, there will be a lot of detrimental factors from working at home that may affect your health.
Take for example the lack of exercise especially if your job mostly has to do with online work.
Despite the apparent idle time and the comfortable environment, work from home may pull down your health if you are not careful.
Here are a few easy to-dos that can improve or maintain your health:
Prepare Healthy Home cooked meals
We know youre tired and the call to order fast food is tempting but consider this. Fast food has a lot of empty calories and artificial ingredients which can actually make you more tired and sleepy than you already are. For someone taking care of his home based business, this is a definite no-no. So take time to prepare a home cooked meal. It doesnt have to be fancy.
To make it easier, have a menu ready at the beginning of the week and get your grocery lists right for easier shopping later on. Cook the meals in one take and reheat it when needed if you really are pressed for time. It might be adding to your list of
chores but your body will thank you for it in the long run.
Get Good Alternatives for your Munchies
When you work from home, most especially when your home based jobs involve a lot of computer time, you will be more likely to have a case of the munchies. The easiest types to stock up on are obviously chips or ready-made pastries. Why dont you stock up on healthier substitutes instead like low-calorie pizzas, cookies and bread? Better yet, get something natural for a change like fruits or cheese.
