Don’t forget … breaks, moving and eating
When a lot of our work, and even our meetings, are happening on screen via technology, there’s a tendency to move a lot less. This can cause a range of aches and pains, stiffness, strain on the eyes and other issues.
It’s important to break up your day and make sure you move around regularly. Frequent screen breaks, stretches and opportunities to get moving are essential to help you operate effectively throughout the day.
Time can pass really quickly when you’re in the bubble of home working – make sure you stop for lunch and other breaks, keep hydrated and aim for a change of scene every now and then – even if it’s just 10 minutes in the garden or a different part of the house.
