Stay Healthy, Stay Safe.
Whilst we’re all shacked up and working from home at present, it can be easy to get stuck in the quagmire that is sitting at your desk for 8 hours straight staring at a screen. Yes, you may be in the comfort of your own home, but that may restrict you into a false sense of security, whereby you forget to keep moving. The same general rule set that you follow at work is still applicable from home. Make sure you’re taking regular screen breaks, a couple of minutes every half an hour or so should help alleviate the workload on your poor eyes as they work tirelessly throughout the day. You can also use this quick break to have a stretch and get the blood flowing. As you can imagine, sitting in the same position all day isn’t great for your body. Whether it be star jumps, jogging on the spot, or just saying a quick hello to your pets, getting short bursts of physical exertion can go a long way. Make sure you drink plenty of water too.
On a social level, people are also feeling the pinch. Tools such as Teams and other solutions mean that whilst you may not have the physical presence of your colleagues, you still communicate with them during the working day. A quick call never goes a miss! The same applies for friends and family. Make sure to stay in touch and keep them smiling. For internal team building, having regular conversations with some fun twists can help. Quizzes, game sessions, there are plenty of options to keep the fun going. Have a think about what your co-workers would enjoy!
