Working from home has plenty of pros as a mom. But it can also have its downsides. Ultimately you’re never out of your office and leave yourself open to being contacted in a professional capacity when you’re trying to enjoy downtime.
One of the most important times of the working day is lunchtime. After a morning of work, it’s important to take a break and take your mind off the stresses of the job.
When you’re at home, there are many ways in which you can do so. Below you’ll find some of the most popular ways to recharge your barriers and make the most of lunchtime...
Refresh Your Brain
Work can often be dull and involve staring at spreadsheets and such like. That can lead to a real lull so reactivating your brain can be important during lunch.
There are many ways you can do so. Online gaming is often enjoyed and games that can really offer excitement to get the brain working include the likes of racing games, puzzles and bingo.
These will get the brain thinking and in the case of bingo games they require concentration and quick reactions, perfect for bringing your brain back to life!
Exercise can also be a good way to get the blood flowing through the brain and indeed the rest of the body. As well as having its health benefits too!
Take a Deep Breath and Relax
Similarly, if you’ve had a crazily busy morning, you might wish to calm your brain and take a moment to relax.
Breathing techniques and yoga can be a good way to de-stress, and they’re so simple to do, particularly if you have the space in your home.
Many offices worldwide have lunchtime yoga sessions, so why not take it into your home?
Take Some Fresh Air
When it comes to working from home, it’s very easy to find yourself inside all day. It’s important to step out and take some fresh air, whether it be lunching in the garden or taking a walk around the block.
You may also wish to combine this with running errands while you have the opportunity.
Enjoy Your Food
Of course, eating is the most important thing to do during lunchtime and you should not only do it, but also enjoy what your eating.
Different types of food can affect your mood so ensure you eat the right nutrients and vitamins, but also food you enjoy. A drab sandwich isn’t going to perk you up for an afternoon of work. But your favorite dish, full of vitamins and minerals will. When working from home, you really do have that luxury!
