Working from home can make losing weight difficult, especially when you don’t know how to separate work life from personal life, and give yourself a break.
The three primary keys to losing and keeping weight off are good nutrition, regular exercise, and quality sleep.
When you work from home, it’s important to make time for movement (i.e. walking around the apartment during conference calls, stretching while you cook breakfast or warm up your cup of coffee).
You don’t have to go to the gym to lose weight, but you should dedicate space in your home to exercise.
Working from home is a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, you have the freedom to dress however you’d like, finish assignments from the comfort of your living room couch, and have an entire kitchen at your disposal whenever the afternoon munchies come on strong. It’s great unless you’re trying to lose weight.
It’s one thing to say no to a piece of cake at an office birthday party, but training yourself not to take a mid-morning break to browse your own pantry full of your favorite foods is a whole new ballpark. Then there’s the issue of not having to leave your house for anything other than grocery shopping if you so choose. Gym memberships sound good in theory, but so does moving from your desk chair to the couch to watch Netflix after a hard day.
The question is, under these super convenient, incredibly comfortable circumstances, how can you can you lose weight when you work from home? Here are a few expert tips on how to do just that.
Invest in workout equipment you can use at home.
You don’t need fancy machines and clunky equipment to achieve your weight loss goals. In fact, the director of fitness from Daily Burn, Amanda Murdock said you don’t even have to have a gym membership. You will, however, benefit from investing in a few basic tools to help speed things along.
“Most of the things you can do at a gym, you can do at home with a little money spent on equipment,” she told INSIDER. “For example buying a set of weights, bands, and subscribing to a platform to motivate you, like Daily Burn, will give you many of the same weight loss benefits that any big box gym will give you.”
