Work Out, Eat Clean: How to Stay Fit and Healthy While Working From Home

Working at your desk and still exercising regularly and eating a mindful and balanced diet? In many traditional office jobs, that isn’t easy to do. The daily commute to work is time and energy consuming and not every work place offers diverse culinary options for lunch time and breaks. People working from home definitely have an advantage here, since you can incorporate exercise and a healthy diet into your daily life much easier at home than at a traditional office job. It also reduces the risk of infection – not just during the pandemic.

The Covid crisis taught us, if we didn’t already know: More work from home reduces the day-to-day risk of infection. This doesn’t just apply to a global pandemic but also to the usual waves of the common cold and flu. Because if you work from home, you shift your face-to-face interactions to the digital space – and with that, you reduce the risk of infecting yourself and others.

But that’s not the only reason why working from home can help you increase your well-being sustainably and in the long term. Even concerning exercise, a healthy diet and workload, working from home offers you many advantages compared to traditional physical attendance.

This is how working from home improves your well-being

Relaxing at the desk instead of rushing to the office: The possibility to take care of yourself and your fitness starts before work when you’re working from home. While others have to take the bus in the morning or are stuck in traffic, you have enough time for a yoga session or going for a jog. Instead of hastily munching on a sandwich or drinking a coffee to go, you can enjoy a balanced, wholesome and healthy breakfast at your leisure. Like this, you can start your work day in a relaxed way and with the good feeling of already having done something for yourself – while many people arrive at their workplace in the morning and already feel stressed.

Enough exercise and a balanced diet at the work place: No problem when you’re working from home!

But even during work hours, there are many possibilities to take care of your fitness, well-being and health when you’re working from home. Because if you’re at home, you can easily make room to integrate exercise or stretching in your work routine. A few yoga moves or a short stretch every now and then? At home, that’s no problem! In single or open plan offices however, there usually isn’t enough space and the privacy you need.

Your oxygen balance also benefits from working at home. After all, you can air out your room as much and as often as you like, without having to check if it’s okay with your co-workers. The same goes for your diet, by the way. During your break, you are not bound to a company canteen menu or the culinary options of your work environment and instead, you can make a balanced meal for yourself. In the long run, this is not only cheaper, but also healthier. This way, you always know exactly what’s in your meal and you only eat what’s good for you.

You can also adapt your home office to your individual needs, for example by choosing a seat that is extra comfortable and easy on your back. This way, you actively prevent damage to your joints or back.
