Five years ago, I was laid off from work.  I used to work in an Accounts Receivable office looking at numbers all day.  Before work got slow, a lot of time I would stay at my desk for lunch.  There wasn’t much to do around my office, so when I actually left work, I would spend my lunch break in the car reading.  On really nice days, a friend who happened to work nearby, would call me to take lunch in the park with her.  But again, we really wouldn’t do much walking unless it was to find a bench to sit and talk.

After I was laid off, my husband and I decided that I would stay home and take on the role of full-time housewife.  From there, I became a full-time blogger.  I once again found myself at a desk most of the day, sitting and staring at a computer.  Thankfully, working from home affords me the opportunity to get up whenever I want. 

Of course, this time of year doesn’t really motivate a person to get outside and get active as much.  The days are getting shorter and it’s getting colder outside.  Bundling up and doing a mile or two in the park or around the neighborhood isn’t that appealing anymore.  But it’s important to stay active and feel your best when you’re sitting most of the day.  Especially this time of year!  So today I’m sharing a few tips to keep you feeling your best even when you’re stuck at your desk.

Start with a daily morning routine

When you work from home, it’s easy to want to fall behind on a routine.  You might want to stay in your pajamas all day, work from the couch (I’m so guilty of that!), or even put off housework.  That’s why I make it a point to get up, get dressed, make the bed, and have a decent breakfast before sitting down to work.  I don’t feel ready to tackle my day unless I complete my morning routine first!  

Take Nature Made® Adult Gummy Vitamins

A great way to feel your best is to make vitamins part of your daily routine.  That’s why I take Nature Made® Adult Gummy Vitamins.  This time of year, Nature Made® Vitamin C Adult Gummies have especially become an important part of my routine.  Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps support the immune system and helps neutralize free radicals in the body.†  The delicious tangerine flavor makes these vitamins easy to take!

Nature Made® Adult Gummies received USP (The U.S. Pharmacopeia Convention) verification for purity and potency making them “a gummy you can trust.”  The USP is a third party nonprofit organization that verifies purity, potency, and quality in products like Nature Made® Adult Gummies.  That means you can be assured that you’re getting the nutrients you look for in gummy vitamins.

Eat well 

Even though I work from home, I still find myself taking lunch at my desk every once in a while.  If my day is super busy, I want to grab something quick.  Sometimes that leads to unhealthy choices.  That’s why I make sure to add smart options to my weekly shopping list and meal prep as much as possible.

The temptation to grab a takeout menu or head to the drive-thru disappears when you have colorful, flavorful foods conveniently stocked in the fridge!

Stay hydrated

After I’ve had my breakfast and my morning cup of coffee, I make sure that I keep a drink with me at my desk.  Water is the best option, but sometimes I like to take a big bottle of seltzer to sip on during the day.  No matter what your beverage of choice is, make sure it’ll keep you hydrated during the day while you’re sitting.

Find a reason to move

When you’re so engrossed in your work, sometimes you’ll sit for long periods of time.  That’s not good for so many reasons!  Instead, save your work and find a reason to move.  I’ll get up throughout the day even if it’s just to stretch. 

If I have the time, I’ll take Hunter for a quick walk even if it’s just to drop a letter in the mailbox.  If I find my desk getting cluttered, I’ll get up and clean.  Recently, I’ve decided to leave a small set of weights in the office by my desk.  Even if I’m sitting, I can at least move my arms!

Feeling your best means that you’ll do your best throughout the day.

    I am so guilty of not moving enough when I work (from my couch). I need to focus on that! #client

    I have a treadmill in the garage and discipline myself as soon as I get home from work to change my clothes and keep repeating to myself
    Keep moving.
    “Never give up, Never quit. You got this”.
