Work-At-Home Health Concerns

There are a number of work-at-home health concerns which can become serious if not addressed.

Conditions such as carpel tunnel syndrome, weight gain, and SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder are just some of the problems we may encounter.

During the winter months especially, when it gets dark earlier, we may develop SAD which encompasses depression, fatigue, or the inability to complete tasks on a daily basis.

To prevent these conditions from occurring, here are some tips to maintain your health and well-being whether you work at home or at the office.

• Utilize an ergonomic work station wherein there is a wrist rest in front of your keyboard; the computer is positioned at least 18 inches away from you; the chair is ergonomic; and there is enough lighting while you work.
• Do not sit for long periods of time at your computer desk. Get up and engage in stretching exercises or go for a 20-minute walk. If you are working on a deadline, you can include five-minute exercises while sitting at your desk. The point is not to remain in one position for a long period of time, but to move around, flex your feet and toes, move your legs, relax your arms, and turn your head from side to side.
• During winter months, ensure you have enough lighting in the room you are using as a work-at-home office. Ideally, place your computer station near the window so that you can take advantage of daylight. Also, have a lamp stationed near your computer desk and turned on during early morning hours before sunrise.
• One of the health concerns we all face as work at home women is gaining weight. The natural tendency is to have snacks at the ready while we work. Maintaining a healthy diet may be difficult, but is necessary to ensure good health and over-all well-being. Have a healthy breakfast before starting work; a nutritious lunch; and dinner. Incorporate exercise in your daily routine as much as possible.

While office workers have the opportunity to go for a walk after lunch, we should also allow ourselves the same advantage so that we don’t have a meal then immediately go back to work without working some of it off. Sometimes, especially in the winter, a bowl of soup can be so relaxing that we may easily become tired and not focus on the work at hand.

It’s important then, not only to take a lunch break but to take 20-minutes out of the day to exercise after lunch so that we are energized and ready to spend the rest of the day completing the tasks at hand.
