In light of COVID-19, many people are shifting to an at-home lifestyle that may require them to spend more time indoors. If you feel like your routine has been interrupted lately, you aren’t alone! Lots of people are having to restructure their days to cope with a new work-from-home lifestyle. Here are four easy ways to stay healthy while you’re spending more time at home. Just being mindful of these four things can help improve your overall day-to-day life.
Get Plenty of Rest
We all know that getting plenty of rest is key to staying healthy. Be sure to keep a routine to keep your internal clock functioning properly; going to bed and waking up at the same time each night will help improve your quality of sleep over time.
Eat Good Food
Regardless of whether or not you’re working from home or still going to work, it’s important to make each meal count. Eating a complete and balanced meal instead of snacking ensures that you’re getting all of the essential nutrients to help keep your immune system strong. An easy way to get a balanced meal is with our Heat & Eat Meals. Since they come pre-packaged and ready to enjoy, they’ll last up to six months in your freezer.
Do you want to really give your immune system an extra boost? Order our Golden Milk with your next to-go or delivery order. It’s made with apple cider vinegar, turmeric, ginger, Karela, and aloe to deliver plenty of vitamin C and keep you healthy.
Spend Time Outdoors
No, we don’t mean running non-essential errands or gathering in large groups! Even if you are spending more time indoors, it is safe to go for a walk, hike, or a bike ride. Getting some fresh air and spending time in the sun is one of the best things you can do for yourself right now! Try to carve out 30 minutes a few times a week to walk through your neighborhood or down a safe street. Plus, now that it’s officially spring, this means more sunshine and longer days. Bonus points if you have a furry friend you can take on a walk with you!
Practice Social Distancing
We should all be practicing social distancing – limiting gatherings of groups of more than 10 and maintaining six feet apart from people outside our own at-home group. But, social distancing doesn’t mean you have to cut off all social contact. In fact, this should really be called physical distancing! Make time for phone calls, FaceTime, and video chats to stay connected with your friends and family.
