All it takes is one pandemic to see screen time statistics shooting off the charts. But isn’t it hard to avoid those devices? They sit and wait patiently, teasing us with access to absolutely everything (except actual human touch. Sigh). While the flexibility is handy, it is often tough to decide when to stop working…or Netflixing. Alas, staring at a screen can be seriously draining and detrimental to our health (and waistline). Let’s check out some solid tips to help you improve our quarantine working-at-home, everything-from-home lifestyle.
The Best-Laid Planners
Making a schedule for your day can have major benefits to your working from home schedule. This schedule will help you stay on task and be more efficient with your work. (If the schedule doesn’t stay “jump on over to Twitter real quick,” you will be far less tempted to scroll social accounts.) Arrange your schedule with breaks in order to look away from the computer screen every once in a while. On break time, you can go on a walk, call a friend, eat a great lunch, or simply relax. Your body will thank you, from your eyes to your thighs.
