Physical and Mental Wellbeing during Homeworking

 

It is important that we all adhere to the current Government guidelines to Stay Home, practice Social Distancing and to help to stop the spread of Covid-19. There have been a lot of changes and uncertainty and people are trying to adapt to a new way of living and working. This will of course take its toll on peoples mental and physical wellbeing.

 

So how can you support yourself and ensure your well-being whilst home working during these challenging times? We have also provided links to other helpful sites for additional support. 

 

ROUTINE:

If you usually work in an office environment you will no doubt have a routine of time to get up, catch the train, take lunch, different meetings etc. Routines are equally important whilst home working and provide structure in your day.

Ensure you take regular breaks away from your “home office” just at you would have done before.

EXERCISE:

If you are able to do some form of exercise this is great for your mental and physical well being. Bring it in as part of your daily routine and under the government guidelines you are allowed to leave your house for one form of exercise per day.

There are lots of helpful exercise apps, YouTube Videos, online classes out there to use, or a walk during the day to have some fresh air.

GIVE YOURSELF A BREAK

We have to understand that these are challenging and difficult times and we need to adapt to how we work. Sometimes things which previously worked seamlessly now wont so give yourself a break and know you are doing all you can in these times.

KEEP IN TOUCH

Alongside keeping in touch with your team on regular basis so you all feel you have a support network, don’t forget the fun side of office relationships. For us we have found Friday night drinks, quizzes and catch ups help build moral and continue the team environment.

GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

Alongside the negativities this pandemic is obviously bringing, are there opportunities for your own personal growth? This could be through taking up a new hobby, enhancing your learning or using your knowledge and skills to help others.
