WORK-FROM-HOME MENTAL WELLBEING HACKS

 WELLNESS TIP #1 

KEEP A ROUTINE

Having a daily routine helps. Keep the same schedule as when you went into the office. Plan your day and also structure the day for your kids so it adheres as closely as possible to their normal school day.

 WELLNESS TIP #2 

LIMIT SCREEN TIME

Don’t get into the habit (or let your children) of using screens on the couch or in bed, this is one habit that’s hard to break.

 WELLNESS TIP #3 

KEEP IT MOVING

Get up and move around. Often.  Take frequent rather than long breaks, away from any screen. Sitting in the same position for eight hours a day takes a physical and psychological toll.

 WELLNESS TIP #4 

ASSIGN POSITIONS BASED ON ACTIVITIES

Vary your position by adapting it to your activity: stand for calls for example.

 WELLNESS TIP #5 

MAKE TIME FOR ME TIME

Don’t forget to get lunch or take extended breaks. If necessary, schedule them in your calendar, as you would do with meetings.

 WELLNESS TIP #6 

KEEP CONNECTED

Proactively stay in touch with others – colleagues, family, and friends… Use video conferencing for more human warmth, better communication and less time writing mails.

 WELLNESS TIP #7 

SET BOUNDARIES

Reinvent a way to have a transition between your work day and your home life. Put your work materials and your laptop away at a fixed time everyday and then don’t pick them up again until a fixed time the following morning.

 WELLNESS TIP #8 

LIMIT STRESS

Try some short (around 5 minutes) and simple breathing and mindfulness exercises to help you relax and limit stress.
