How to create the right working from home routine

Life has been different this year. We’ve all had to adapt to a ‘new normal’. For many people, this has meant working from home.

There are lots of benefits to not being in the office, particularly the freedom and flexibility around your schedule. However, this can mean a lack of structure to your day, which can lead to some unhealthy habits.

If you haven’t quite settled into a routine that improves your productivity and benefits your wellbeing. We’re here to help.

Read on for tips on how to create the right working from home routine.

Eat healthily

Start your day with a healthy breakfast and take the time to have a lunch break. When working from home, it’s easy to let the day to run away with you – and before you know it you haven’t eaten! A balanced diet will give you the energy and nutrients you need to stay productive.

It’s a good idea to plan and prep your meals ahead of time. You can do this with the FlavorStone Diamond. Use it on gas, induction, electric and ceramic hobs, as well as in your oven and on your grill. And because of its square shape, you get 25% more space for your ingredients compared to circular pans. Plus, its non-stick wipe clean coating makes cooking and washing up stress-free.

Keep it clean

A tidy home equals a tidy mind. Whether you’re working in your study or have zoned-off an area, having a dedicated workspace that’s clean and organised will help you concentrate and keep on top of your weekly schedule.

The H2O e3 Cleaning System will help you clean your space effectively. Using only water and salt to create its revolutionary S-Water, it can cut through grease and grime, as well as sanitise and deodorise multiple surfaces. Without harsh chemicals, this eco-friendly cleaner will kill 99.9% of germs, bacteria and viruses.

Exercise regularly

Working from home has impacted how much we exercise. Gone are the days of walking, cycling or even dashing to and from your office car park. Instead we shuffle into our study or makeshift office space. That’s why it’s crucial to make an effort to get your body moving. Even short bouts can reduce stress, focus your mind and build your immune system.

You can stay active at home with the Orbitrek X17 multi-trainer. It has 17 different burn paths and combines the movements from 5 different workouts into 1 machine, due to its dual crank mechanism. When riding the Orbitrek X17, you’ll activate more muscles and burn 34% more calories than on a traditional exercise bike.

Take the time to relax

When you work from home, it can be hard to separate work from play. Yet it’s important for your mental and physical health, as well as your quality of work, to find a balance. Taking the time to unwind will ensure you feel rejuvenated for the next day. So, put your phone away, close your laptop and try to relax.
