With most of us now working from home, our daily routines and movements have had a significant shake up. While it may have helped with getting that last load of washing on in your lunch break or allowing us to work in our favourite lounge wear, it might also be having a negative impact on our mood, energy and creativity levels.
Here at Paleo Hero, we believe the best way to getting your productivity up and mood improved is to GET MOVING. Moving your body and exercising has been proved time and time again to boost energy levels, sharpen memory and thinking, improve focus and give you that all important injection of endorphins that make you feel GOOD.
THE #WFH WORKOUT CHALLENGE
Here's how it works. For every hour, on the hour of your working day take a 5 minute break and complete the following list of exercises. Simple as that. It'll get you off your butt, clear your mind and give you a quick endorphin boost to help get you to your next hourly exercise. You can set yourself an hourly alarm so you don't forget.
Run/Walk up and down a set of stairs 5 times for big staircase or 10 times for little stair case. No stairs? Run back and forth across the room you're in for 10 sets.
Take off your slippers and go for a brisk walk around block or up and down your street, practicing safe social distancing of course.
50 Star Jumps
10 Push Ups (on your knees is totally fine, just get moving!)
20 Step Ups. Make sure you've got a solid, sterdy chair to complete this one.
2 Minute Plank (trust us you can do it, just go to your happy place and BREATHE)
15 Sit Ups
And you're done! Want some bonus points? Remember to drink water throughout your day and eat healthy, balanced meals. Preferably with some form of Paleo Hero products.
We encourage everyone to make an effort to keep moving if not for the body but for the mind. After all, you rarely regret a workout.
