Working from home can be a great way to avoid the distractions of an office environment, but it can also be easy to fall into bad habits. If you want to stay healthy and productive while working from home, you need to kick these bad habits! In this blog post, we will discuss four bad habits that you need to break if you want to stay healthy and productive while working from home.
Sitting Still For Too Long
Sitting still for too long is one of the bad habits that you need to break if you want to stay healthy and productive while working from home. Sitting in a chair all day can cause problems such as back pain, neck pain, eye strain, and carpal tunnel syndrome. If you are going to work from home then make sure your office has a comfortable chair with proper lumbar support (or invest in an ergonomic one), set up sofas or couches around it so they’re easy on your back when standing up after sitting down for hours at a time!
Make use of standing desks where possible – these are better than regular ones because they allow more movement during periods when there isn’t much work being done.
Taking Breaks That Are Too Short or Longer Than Necessary
Taking breaks that are too short is another bad habit you need to break if you want to stay healthy and productive while working from home. A study found that people who take more frequent but shorter breaks throughout their day have higher levels of productivity than those taking less frequent longer ones (and they were also happier!).
The same goes with your lunch break—make it as long as possible so that when you’re back at your desk, there will be no problem concentrating on what needs doing right away without getting distracted by hunger pangs! Take 30-minute walks in between workdays instead of just eating lunch at 12pm every day
Not Eating Proper Meals When Working From Home
Not eating proper meals when working from home is another bad habit you need to break if you want to stay healthy and productive while working from home.
A study found that people who took at least two breaks per day to eat a proper meal were more productive than those who did not. This is because eating helps you focus on your work better, and it also gives you energy so that when it comes time for lunch break again, there won’t be any problem concentrating!
Eating Junk Food Between Meals
Eating junk food between meals is another bad habit you need to break if you want to stay healthy and productive while working from home. When we’re hungry, it can be tempting to reach for unhealthy snacks instead of taking the time to cook a proper meal, but this is not a good idea if you want to stay focused and energized.
Make sure your kitchen is stocked with healthy snacks such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, yogurt, and whole grain bread so that when hunger strikes you won’t have any problem resisting unhealthy junk foods!
Day Drinking And Other Substances
Day drinking is another bad habit you need to break if you want to stay healthy and productive while working from home. Many people see nothing wrong with having a beer or two when they are working from home and certainly the meme about making sure to blow on your mug so they think your wine is actually tea are common to see passed around these days.
Alcoholism and drug addition however are both very serious subjects and even moderate consumption can impact your ability to do work properly and make good judgments. Even though you aren't in the office, it is essential to maintain a similar level of decorum and so wait to crack open that beer until you close your laptop screen!
If you do find that this is a problem or the temptation to have a few drinks at lunch or a quick puff on your vape proves to be an issue, make sure to seek help immediately. We recommend that you seek counseling and consider checking into one of the American Addiction Centers to get a jump start on your recovery if that's a step that your family and friends think is needed.
Overworking Yourself Since There's No "Quitting Time"
Overworking yourself since there's no "quitting time" is another bad habit you need to break if you want to stay healthy and productive while working from home. It can be easy for many people who don’t have a set schedule at their jobs (especially those who are self-employed) to work longer hours than they should because it doesn’t feel like there is any “quitting time.” This isn't just limited to being stuck in the office though - working too much when none of your coworkers are around or on vacation can also lead down this path! The best way out? Set up boundaries so that even though one person may not notice how hard other employees work, everyone knows what kind of
