Working Remotely and Its Challenge on The Body
Adapting Companies To Remotely Working
The number of people working from home has grown 115% in the past 10 years, and it’s growing faster than any other commute method. Remote work is on a 173% growth spurt since 2005 according to Global Workplace Analytics’ recent report!
As the leader of a communication agency that has been virtual since its founding seven years ago, I’ve learned a lot about what works — and what doesn’t- when it comes to building thriving remote cultures. Here we’ll discuss working remotely and its challenge on the body:
Striking A Work-Life Balance
Striking a work-life balance can seem like an impossible task when your office is in your home. The lines between “work” life become blurry, leaving you vulnerable to overworking yourself without even realizing it or understanding why this may happen. Studies show that from March 2020 employee comments regarding burnout increased from 2% – 5%. This means there could be many reasons including lack of boundaries at home which impacts our mental health overall happiness.”
Poor Health Issues
Remote work has been shown to help with productivity and staying healthy. This is because it can be difficult to sleep well when you are constantly on the go, so your body experiences a lack of rest which leads many remote workers to develop unhealthy habits like procrastination during the day only for their make up by working late into the night or neglecting their daily exercise routine
A 2011 study showed that people who worked remotely had lower self-esteem than those stuck at desks every day – an issue not just limited to how they feel about themselves but also impacts relationships with others too.
Sitting too much is not necessarily a bad habit but it can lead to other problems. Sitting at your desk all day may strain you heart and increase the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, or obesity inactivity. To reduce these risks, try standing up for half an hour after working on a computer every few hours (or whenever), use treadmill desks while standing instead if possible-and take lots of walks outside during lunchtime!
Not Eating on Time
Eating on time is an important part of your day. Implement this same routine for lunch and snacks when working remotely to make sure you don’t fall behind at home as well!
Maintaining healthy eating habits has been proven by studies done not only in schools but also with business professionals who need their energy levels throughout the whole workday before they even start thinking about what’s for dinner or how many hours of sleep that individual needs every night just because life isn’t paced perfectly like clockwork around here, no matter where someone lives anymore – there are always things happening outside one’s control which can disrupt any kind planed schedule so.
Overeating is a common problem in our society. When we multitask and are constantly distracted, it’s easy for us to eat without realizing what has been consumed with food! The worst part about this? It can happen if your desk drawer contains snacks or you work from home by having all the ingredients right near at hand – even though that may seem like an unlikely place where overeating would occur (kitchens!). Keep those goodies out of reach so they don’t tempt me into grabbing one too many when I’m not really hungry…or better yet replace them altogether with healthier alternatives.
