Working from home?

Working from home brings with it a plethora of problems! Not least the challenge of staying active, fit and healthy. Here are some helpful tips to help avoid aches and pains associated with being sedentary.


Make sure you move regularly throughout the day to help reduce stress.

Break up prolonged periods of sitting with short bursts of activity to improve your mental health and circulation. This can be small amounts of light walking, moving around the house, cleaning, gardening or going up and down the stairs every 30 minutes.


Increasing your daily activity and doing some more structured exercise such as a brisk walk outside, yoga or weight training can reduce symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression.


Simple stretches, designed by expert physiotherapists, can help ease the aches and pains associated with sitting for long periods at home.
