A shift to at-home working may be one of the lesser side-effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Some will undoubtedly welcome longer lie-ins, saved commuting costs, and more time with loved ones. It may sound appealing, but WFH could have drastic consequences for your health.

A lack of social contact can take a huge toll on our mental well-being, with many relying on ‘water cooler chat’ to save them from the despair of loneliness. As if the emotional impact of WFH was not stark enough, unsupportive chairs and make-shift desks are leading to a rise in ‘tech neck,’ with muscular niggles becoming a daily ache.

Not to mention the stress of mixing home with work, and unhealthy snacks always being on hand! WFH may also make us couch potatoes, as the stroll to and from the station gets taken out of the equation. As if all that wasn’t enough, rolling from the bedroom to the boardroom – only to work into the evening – is a recipe for burn-out.

Healthy Habits While Working from Home provides practical, expert-led advice on how to stay physically and mentally well in a remote office while we adapt to the ‘new normal.’
