Okay, what are you wearing? Are you in baggy PJs, jeans, shorts or loose shirts? One of the perks of working from home is that it doesn’t matter what you wear. From a health perspective, try wearing clothes that are comfortable, but snug.
Why? You’re less likely to overindulge with snacks throughout the day and more likely, to eat smaller portions during meal time.
Let the size be your motivation to focus on healthy living. With comfortable clothing, you can take breaks and exercise in small bursts. Drop and do a few sit ups and push ups. Throw in a few lunges and squats.
Clothing is a way for us to express ourselves and being comfortable in snug clothing will help remind you of your health goals. Baggy clothes make everyone look bigger. It’s time to drop those extra 15 to 20 lbs!
