Over the past year and a half, working from home has become the new normal for many of us.
The global coronavirus pandemic caused workplaces across the UK to shut their doors overnight and, where possible, switch to remote working models.
It meant that suddenly, millions of office workers around the country found themselves logging into their emails from home, joining endless Zoom calls and working virtually.
If you’re one of them, it may have impacted you in different ways. Interrupted sleep, lack of exercise, emotional and mental health issues and poor nutrition are just some of the unforeseen side-effects of lockdown that have taken their toll on the nation’s workers. And with the lack of an office space to differentiate home life from work life, maintaining focus and a good work-life balance has become more challenging.
Many businesses are now starting to reopen as lockdown restrictions continue to loosen. However, the flexibility and cost-savings that remote working can offer businesses mean that home working is here to stay, in some shape or form.
If this affects you, then here are our top tips for boosting focus while working from home…
PROS AND CONS OF WORKING FROM HOMEBefore the pandemic, life was much simpler. You’d wake up, travel to work, spend your day with colleagues, and then come home to relax and recharge.

DON'T FORGET YOUR NUTRITIONThe tips above will go some way to helping you stay focused and productive while working from home. But you shouldn’t neglect the basic building blocks of positive overall health and wellbeing.
Eating well, exercising regularly and staying connected will help you to maintain good mental and physical health.
If you’re concerned that you may be missing out on certain nutrients or need a helping hand to relax and unwind, then natural supplementation can help.
If you’re stuck indoors for long periods, you might not be getting the sun exposure your body needs to produce Vitamin D.
This vital nutrient is essential for the development of healthy bones, joints, teeth and muscles. But if you don’t spend long enough in the sunshine, you might not be getting enough. A high-quality natural Vitamin D supplement will help top up any shortfall.
And if you are suffering from stress or anxiety and need some help to relax and unwind, Nutri-Calm can help you stay soothed and settled during times of pressure.
