YOGA IN THE WORKPLACE OR HOME OFFICE
organisations understand the impact of employees’ health on the companies’ performance, there are steadily more employers who have integrated different physical activities into their corporate wellness programs. Having long proven to provide many mental and physical benefits, Yoga is increasingly finding its way into the workplace. Leading successful companies like Apple, Google, and Forbes have introduced Yoga into their corporate wellness programs and have reaped benefits like improved productivity and increased employee motivation.
When you work from home, it's important to prioritize self-care. Doing so may help you stay connected to yourself and better understand what you need in terms of work-life balance. Take your time figuring out how you can best take care of yourself and meet your needs.
Practicing self-care may include:
Office workers often spend long hours slouching over their desk and unknowingly stretch their neck forward as they stare at the computer screen. This unnatural posture is unhealthy and can cause back pain, neck strain, and shoulder stiffness which interrupts productivity as employees are distracted by the discomfort and unable to focus on the tasks on hand.
Yoga can help employees to relief such pain through fluid movements and stretches. It can also help lessen any tension caused by stress
Working non-stop throughout the day is bound to create stress which can lead to lower energy and burnout in the long run. It is proven that doing any form of physical activity every 30 minutes, including stretching or even standing up, greatly increases blood circulation and promotes oxygenation which is crucial for energy production.
Yoga can help to get your heart pumping and blood flowing through dynamic movements. and poses. Not only that, simple Yoga stretches can also be achieved within your workstation to improve blood circulation and energy.
Stressful deadlines, demanding workload and endless meetings can create a mental clutter that prevents you from concentrating on tasks and making intelligent decisions. Yoga, meditation and breathing exercises are a great way to effectively silence the noise and free the mind of clutter that is hindering productivity.
The increase in blood circulation from practicing Yoga also helps to improve brain function for a sharp and focused mind.
The bottom line – Yoga can help to create healthy, less-stressed and motivated employees who are more productive and cost-effective for organisations. Encouraging employees to take just 10 minutes during work hours to practice some simple yoga stretches or breathing exercises at their desk or out in the fresh air and under the sun can help tremendously.
