Since the pandemic, many of us have shifted our workspace to our home. Remote work is on the rise due to the increased flexibility and productivity it brings. Although there are many benefits to working remotely, there are also increased health risks that we need to be aware of. When working remotely, there is no longer a clear boundary between work and home like there is when working at an office. We are also more likely to experience prolonged sitting, increased screen time, and increased sedentary lifestyle – all of which can compromise physical, mental, and emotional health.
In this episode of the Mind Your Health Podcast, Dr. Connie discusses the importance of being mindful of how working at home influences your physical body and your mind, and what you can do to decrease the health risks associated with working remotely.
In this episode, you'll discover:
🖊️The health implications associated with working remotely, including increased isolation, loneliness, stress, and burnout, as well as increased risk of obesity, musculoskeletal issues, and physical and mental fatigue
🖊️The differences between office work and remote work that we don't think about, and how these differences impact both our minds and bodies
🖊️Consequences of dismissing the warning signs of health risks due to prolonged sitting and lack of work-life balance
🖊️10 things you can do to maintain and even BOOST your physical, mental, and emotional health while working remotely
