Working From Home

The pandemic has fundamentally changed how and where many of us work. Many people either now work from home or work from home far more than they did before the pandemic. Although working from home has many advantages, it can also be challenging especially when it comes to diet and nutrition. It can lead to some not ideal habits such as eating at your desk or grabbing multiple snacks in between meals. At Metabolic Balance, as part of our nutrition coaching we encourage clients to try out new healthy habits. One example, is enjoying your lunch break away from your desk. This can lead you to be more mindful during your meal and concentrate on the smells, textures, and flavors of your food. This is known to help improve your digestion and satiety. By taking a break, you also increase your chances of being productive and getting a lot more done in the afternoon!

Here at Metabolic Balance, we support your metabolism with real food and expert advice, and we also encourage our clients to have a work and life balance. If you are looking to adapt healthier habits and lifestyle, reach out to one of our great coaches today!

Age Related Work Schedules – It is a Thing.

What is your favourite work schedule?

A recent CNN article shared different studies where researchers focused on our working habits of individuals at different ages and, looked into what working hours were best for what age groups.

According to the research, employees over the age of forty work best if they limit their work hours to 25 hours a week.

The article shared the following startling information:

Women in their 20s, 30s and 40s who work an average of 60 hours or more per week may triple their risks of diabetes, cancer, heart trouble and arthritis, according to a separate study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine last month.
Additionally, a 2015 study published in the Lancet found that working more than 55 hours per week may be linked to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke in adults.
