Is it just me or are these makeshift-turned-permanent workstations starting to take a toll on our bodies? Maybe your home office matches your aesthetic and you're happy to share your desk with your cat rather than a coworker - I hear you! Me too. But I'm also learning just how uncomfortable my dining room chairs are, how the table height gives me knots in my shoulders, and how much I miss fresh air.
There are definitely pros and cons to the "post-covid normal". But with no end in sight, it's time to make our workstations work for us. Here are some tips and tricks to maximize your work area and prioritize your wellbeing for the long run.
We've all heard the classic "you are what you eat" yadda yadda yadda. Skincare gurus will tell you that their skincare routine doesn't stop or end with topical products, it's ingrained into their diets and morning protein shakes. But what if your skin clarity depended on when you eat just as much as what you eat? Fasting can kick our entire bodies into gear by detoxing and burning through fat, but it can also alter our skin's chemistry and help us to achieve that youthful, clear glow. Whether skin health is your main goal or you simply want to reap the benefits of this happy little side effect of intermittent fasting, here's how it works!
Typically, when we think of poor circulation, the first thing that comes to mind is pins and needles in our arms after sleeping funny or purple-y skin.

Having poor circulation is an underlying cause for a number of ailments, and it puts you at higher risk for much more serious diseases as well. You might benefit even more from getting a good rush of blood to your brain and muscles than you would a strong shot of espresso! Even if you are in seemingly perfect health, it doesn't hurt to get up and get your blood flowing to keep your mind and body active and healthy.
