You may be thinking, “Working from home in your pyjamas is the most comfortable thing you can do!” You’re not wrong, but follow these 4 simple tips and your body will thank you in the long run!

Some end final tips
Setting clear boundaries for starting and stopping work can help you avoid overworking and going crazy! Get dressed in the morning so you’re ready for work, make sure all distractions are turned off, and when you’re done for the day, turn off your computer and disable work notifications.
Sitting all day is not good for your health. Get up and walk around the house every so often.
And last but not least, be safe when you go out, wash your hands and wear a mask!
