5 Self-Care Routines You Can Do At Your Desk



To say 2020 has been a stressful year would surely be an understatement, that is why finding moments to maintain a healthy relationship with ourselves is so important.


Self-care doesn't mean you need to start your workday with a 30-minute yoga sequence or carve out lunchtime meditation sessions.


In actual fact, self-care is ANY action you take to ensure you stay healthy. We need to consciously prioritise self-care, and more importantly, it needs to take place all the time. 


In fact, you don't even have to get up from your desk for self-care. Here are some ideas you may find useful:


  1. Have Inspiring Quotes and Visuals in Sight


  1. Practice Good Eye Screen Health

    • According to WebMD, try out the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look at an object at least 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds.

    • Do also take a longer break of about 15 minutes after every 2 hours you spend on your devices.

    • Change the brightness of the screen. It shouldn’t be lighter or darker than your surroundings.


  1. Take a Minute to Stay Hydrated


  1. Set a Timer for a Three-Minute Stretch

    • Reduce your stress levels and potentially increase your productivity with these simple stretches.

    • Don't undermine the importance of maintaining blood flow, nutrient supply which will help boost your energy levels.


  1. Wind Down with a Five-Minute Quiet Time


Whether you are currently working from home or transitioning back to the office, we could all use a reminder to schedule some dedicated time to practice protecting our own well-being and happiness - particularly during stressful times.


Take care and stay safe.
