Working from home has given us the luxury of flexibility, and the ability to log in from the comfort of our own homes. Unfortunately, it has also brought with it the curse of fatigue and long working hours. It is important to know how to deal with the physical and mental toll that this can take on you, the right way.

Performance and Productivity
As employees, we are always focused on getting the job done, irrespective of how long it takes. However, according to a study by The Institute for Employment Studies, UK — working long hours, when coupled with sleep deprivation, actually causes a decline in performance. In short, adding more hours to your day can heavily impact your productivity and quality of output.

Keep it Moving
Sedentary working patterns often have a negative impact on your body. Research from The Institute for Employment Studies reveals that sitting at a desk for long hours impacts mental health negatively, and can also cause cardiovascular disorders. With minimal movement and activities, your body is more prone to muscle fatigue and other diseases. Take your calls as you walk around the house, or do quick workouts at your desk to minimise this risk.

Working long hours affects us and our loved ones. Finding the perfect work-life balance may not be easy, but it is important — ensure that you allocate enough time to also nurture your relationships. At Motherhood Hospitals we have a team of experienced supers specialists backed by the latest infrastructure and facilities.
