Anthony Wedderburn believes that taking regular breaks is important for our physical health, as well as our mental health. Sitting for long periods is not good for our concentration, and in extreme cases can also lead to long-term health issues, like blood clots. Here are Anthony's top tips for working from home:
1. Work to a schedule/list
This will help you clarify what you need to do in the day, which will reduce stress levels. You will be more positive and productive.
2. Take regular breaks
You need to have a break from the computer and your desk every hour for 5 to 10 minutes. This will prevent medical problems, such as eyestrain and promote a clear head. I suggest you should make yourself a cuppa, practise yoga and mediation, or a walk around your garden.
3. Create a happy clutter free work area
You should make sure you have an abundance to light, and a desk and chair which has been positioned correctly to prevent back pain and other related problems. I would have a few plants around to make you feel like you are outside and you should be happier and calmer.
