Three Times To Try Online Yoga If You Work From Home

Posted on: 22 January 2021

For people who have recently started to work from home, it can often be desirable to find some way of getting exercise during the day. If yoga is appealing to you, you may wish to consider working with an online instructor. Doing so is safe during the COVID-19 pandemic and is also convenient. If you're getting used to your work-at-home daily schedule, you may be able to fit a short yoga session — 30 minutes, for example — into your day. Here are three times to think about practicing online yoga when you work from home.

Before The Workday Starts

One of the best things about working from home is that you no longer have to commute to work. Instead of sleeping later in the morning, consider getting up in time to have a yoga class before you start work. For example, you can get up and get into your yoga clothing right away, and then have your class start perhaps 15 or 20 minutes after your morning alarm. Knowing that you have a class scheduled can encourage you to get up promptly. You may be able to have your session before anyone else in your house wakes up, and then get your shower and breakfast before your workday begins.

During Your Lunch Break

When people work from home, they'll often use their lunch breaks to tend to various matters around the house. For example, you might put a load of laundry into the washing machine or take your dog for a short walk during this time. Another option to think about is booking an online yoga class. If your work schedule allows you to take lunch at the same time each day — noon, for example — you can book a session with an instructor to begin a few minutes after your lunch break begins, and then eat your lunch when you get back to work.

As Soon As Your Workday Ends

Another option to think about is booking your online yoga class for as soon as your workday ends. For example, if you promptly stop working at 4 p.m. each day, you might wish to begin your class shortly thereafter. Doing so will allow you to get some exercise and also relax, which can help to eliminate any stress that you experienced during the workday. It can be nice to do something for yourself at the end of the workday and before you begin focusing on others in your home — for example, helping your kids with their homework and making dinner.
