Make physical activity a priority.

Less than 1/4 of American adults get the recommended amounts of both aerobic and muscle-strengthening exercise, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As a remote worker, you have extra time in your day that you don’t have to waste commuting into an office. Use that time to exercise and move. Reap the health benefits of exercise by opting for a lunchtime walk, a virtual yoga session with your spouse, or a quick 20-minute workout. Make time to stretch specific areas of the body that may be strained from prolong sitting like your back, neck and hips.
