Working Out From Home
If you’re avoiding high-risk areas like gyms, that doesn’t mean you have to give up on a regular workout routine. Working out from home can be easy and free if you know the right routines, as this Healthline.com article states.
Focus on the basic body-weight exercises like planks, pushups, squats, leg lifts or burpees for an easy workout that will build strength and get your heart rate up. The key is choosing exercises that target multiple muscle groups for a full-body workout.
If you like guidance in your workout routine, or if you’re looking for new exercises, tutorials like this one can be found on YouTube.
During stressful times, regular exercises becomes more important than ever; read this article for more information on how to effectively work out in the comfort of your own home.
Working Remotely Done Right
Continuing with the at-home topic, working remotely may sound enticing at first, but some may find it to be difficult to avoid distractions. Forbes.com shares important tips for staying focused and productive while working from home.
You may, like me, find that getting dressed before beginning your work often yields better results. Working in your pajamas may sound fun, but you might feel a little too relaxed and lethargic. Also, keeping up with regular work habits like coffee/lunch breaks and giving yourself time to get up and stretch will make you more productive.
