How To Keep A Healthy Eating Habit While Working From Home During Covid – 19
There are many advantages to working from home which can lead to ignoring your healthy eating habits.
Here’s what you can do to continue your healthy eating habits while working from home.
STOCK YOUR HOME WITH MOSTLY FRESH AND HEALTHY FOOD
Plan your daily meals and go food shopping so you can have everything readily available to heat and eat. Hereby avoiding the temptations of eating junks lying around the house in case you haven’t found time to shop while working from home.
While working from home, create a quiet space at home to work where you cannot be disturbed, unless it’s absolutely necessary or an emergency. This can help you to separate your work time from your family life like you do while in a typical office setting. This way, the stress of handling kids, family obligations, and work won’t get out of hand that you end up making food your stress relief.
SET AN EATING SCHEDULE
In a typical office setting, your regular eating routine would be to eat on your way to work or just immediately you get to work, you either buy lunch at work or munch on your pre-cooked meal and then eat dinner at home or have a stop over at an eatery. You can try this while working from home too, try to eat 3 meals the same time every day and maybe 1-2 snacks mainly fruits with vitamin c at intervals as you do if you were in a typical office setting so your healthy eating habit doesn’t become a mess.
DONT INDULGE YOURSELF EVERYDAY
It’s easier not to indulge when you are around your colleagues in the office who see what and when you indulge which is totally different when you work from home. So you can set a time for when you’ll have high-calorie or other junks that have sugar. It also helps to be mindful of when and what you choose to indulge in. You can also put portioned meals and snacks for the day and put your favorite munchies out of sight so they are out of your mind.
