10 ways to practice self care when working from home

1. Set boundaries between your work and home

When you’re not in the office, it’s easy to slip into habits such as working late into the evening. In order to maintain a healthy balance between work and play, put clear boundaries in place so that there is a distinction between the hours you need to work and the time you have to yourself.

2. Stock up on healthy treats

Keep your kitchen stocked up with tasty (and healthy) snacks to graze on during the day. A bowl of fresh fruit or nuts by your desk are a great way to keep the hunger at bay in between meals.
