While life as we know it has taken a drastic change over the past few weeks, there are still a few things that we can do to help maintain our health and wellbeing during these times of isolation and social distancing.
Our wellbeing is critical for our work-life-balance. The 3 key things we should focus on to maintain our wellbeing, especially in times of high stress like many of us are facing now, are exercise, sleep and eating habits.
Our #Win4Youth Ambassadors, Joyce Bijl and Rachel Maurer, have come up with a few ways to stay fit and exercise within the confines of your home. Here are some of their suggestions on how to keep active:
Regular exercise has so many benefits, so try to aim for at least 30 minutes a day. If you consider that the average commute time is around 27 minutes each way, that is valuable time that could be spent on exercising, meditating or other healthy activities.
In a survey from FlexJobs, 77% of respondents said flexible work options would help them be healthier.
Most of all, it is important to find an exercise plan that works for you! Try a few different activities, online classes, or a family routine and decide what suits you best. Then, of course, stick with it! Regular exercise and getting into a routine will help pass the days while we observe social distancing restrictions and limited exposure to the world outside of our homes. With so many of us working remotely, it’s a great time to find a balance between wellness and work.
