Working from home has been a great discovery for many people who have had their routines altered because of the pandemic. Despite having its challenges, the home office style has generated good discussions, such as the fact of providing more flexible hours, the convenience of working in the comfort of your home, without the stress of traffic or crowded public transport, for example. However, something that has been worrying a lot is the sedentary lifestyle that has taken over the lives of many workers, triggering physical health and even emotional problems. The WHO - World Health Organization, states that for a person to be considered physically active, they need to exercise for at least 150 minutes a week, which is by far the reality of many home office professionals. Staying physically active is challenging but not impossible. Therefore, we have gathered some suggestions to help you in this process.

By deciding to stay active, you will be able to improve your breathing, renew your mood, decrease stress and stabilize yourself emotionally. It is worth checking out the following suggestions and improving your home office routine.
Before the famous remote control existed, people were forced to get up to change channels or radio stations.

There are even songs that were developed by experts who claim to have developed relaxing characteristics in their compositions.
