Get enough sleep and keep regular hours. Just because you are working from home with no commute, don’t feel like you can stay up all hours of the night and get up whenever you want. Keep regular hours – go to bed at the same time every night, and wake up with an alarm as usual. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep a night. This will help maximize the magic of sleep overnight, and your body will thank you.
Stay on track with your nutrition. Regular meal times are important! Avoid snacking all day by eating proper meals at the proper times. It’s really easy to feel like this time is an extended vacation, and overeating goes hand and hand with that. Do some planning since you have a bit more time. Shop and prepare meals. If snacking is a must, have plenty of healthy options available and make sure you’re watching your portion sizes!
Water, water and more water. Did I say WATER? Hydration helps with focus & performance, as well as keeping you from snacking mindlessly. Aim for 6 or more 8 ounce glasses of water a day. And if you’re exercising vigorously, make sure the use an electrolyte supplement such as GQ-6 or Nuun.
Get some exercise in every day! It doesn’t have to be a lot, especially if you are new to exercise. A short walk, a couple of flights of stairs, some sit-ups, stretching and yoga are great options as well! Just get some movement in, then do a bit more as time goes on. Before you know it, you’ll crave that me-time.
Don’t forget your CBD and other supplements. Again, staying on your routine is important. CBD works best when you are consistent in it’s use. CBD can help you deal with all this additional anxiety, it can help improve your sleep, and it can also help with inflammation which is the root cause of so many health problems.
