With every new year comes an exciting sense of renewal: a feeling that we can start afresh, set new goals and resolve to make improvements to our lives. With the next year set to be the year of the homeworker, our new infographic illustrates 21 healthy resolutions you can apply to your homeworking life to feel healthier, happier and more productive.
While the arrival of 2021 doesn't necessarily signal a return to pre-pandemic 'normality', some changes have been for the better. The move to more flexible working practices - accelerated by lockdown, is great news for Britain's office workers. It means less commuting, better work-life balance, more autonomy and (as long as healthy habits are developed at home), less time spent in risky static postures typical of traditional office life, which can lead to back pain and other musculoskeletal issues.
If you're working from home more throughout the next year, it's important to develop a healthy routine which includes the setting up of an ergonomic home office or dedicated space where your laptop/computer screen is at the right height and angle, your chair is adjustable and you can stretch and move around frequently. Our infographic details 21 ideas for homeworking resolutions to boost both your physical and mental wellbeing. Feel free to download and share it with your fellow work-from-homers.
