Health And Fitness And Your Home Based Business
We all know what we should be doing, for many of us it’s about habits and routines follow these 3 simple steps to ensure you maintain health and fitness.
Take Regular Breaks
I like the commonly used 50/10 ratio, 50 minutes of work and then a 10 minute break, some days I find it more productive to do 100/20, 100 minutes of work and then a 20 minute break. Hey, 20 minutes is long enough for a power nap or a power walk, alternatively if you are very eager you could easily fit in 3 sets of 3 exercises with no equipment necessary, how about power lunges, push ups and sit-ups, with time to spare to stretch!
Be sure to stretch regularly, we all know the dangers of RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury), while waiting for the kettle to boil, take the time to stretch, there is plenty of information available on preventative stretching for people working on a computer or in an office. Hanging out the washing during one of your regular breaks is another great way to stretch, and don’t forget to breath!
Ensure your office is set up ergonomically; there are many factors to consider however the most notable being adequate natural light, ergonomic desk and chair. Good posture is vital. Your feet are flat on the floor hip distance apart. Your body should create right angles from the top of your head to your knees and from your thighs to your feet. Your shoulders should be back and down, your arms should be at right angles, your wrists should be held above the desk, your screen should be positioned so that when your head is held straight your eyes are level with the top of your screen.
Working on these areas will ensure you maintain healthy fitness habits without sacrificing valuable business time.
