Working from home can fuse the minutes into hours. Before you know it, the day is over. Break your day into shorter periods of time so that every couple of hours, you climb a few flights of stairs or take a stroll around the house. What is most important is that you step away from the screen and get moving.
Transitioning from a physically active lifestyle to a more sedentary one can be an adjustment for many. Hence it's important to find some form of exercise that works for you during this time. Yoga is a suitable choice for many as it can work even for beginners and usually only requires a mat and a yoga video.
Those who can barely spare a minute of their days to designate to exercise will find it even more difficult to peel themselves off the couch to work up a sweat. A nifty fitness hack is to sit on an inflatable gym ball or use a stepper to keep your activity levels high even if you can't switch off from work.
If you don't have an elliptical, cycle or treadmill on hand like you would at the gym, clocking in cardio is more tricky but not impossible. A skipping rope is perfect to get some at home along with exercises like squats and jumping jacks.
