The phrase Work From Home is probably no longer strange to us during the covid period. For many people, work from home has changed things for the worse and for the better. We all have the same amount of time 24 hours a day, but how to make the most of that time is useful. For me, “Work From Home” is a great opportunity to lose weight.

This is how I and my busy students “enlisted” to practice when “work from home”.

1/ Practice before your child gets up, before going to work:

My students are usually working mothers or have young children, so they are quite busy. But thanks to WFH, mothers save a lot of time applying makeup, moving, and taking their children to school. In the past, if mothers wanted to exercise, the morning hours were too slow, they could not exercise in time, even if they had to wake up at 5 am, they still couldn’t make it in time. As for WFH, save an hour, take advantage now. The best time to practice is 6am – 7am, after taking a shower, you are healthy, full of energy to work and take care of the children. I took this opportunity to teach students online via Zoom, saving them a lot of time having to go to the gym, imagine waking up in the morning it only takes 15-20 minutes to clean up and go to the gym. Not having to go to the gym, going to the living room to open the computer to meet the teacher is always super convenient. There are sisters who can practice at noon before going to work, equally effective. The important thing is that I know how to arrange reasonable time periods.

Some of my Zoom classes, the students practice very hard

2/ Set of gaps between work hours:
Because we don’t have to move much, at home depending on each person’s work, we can “take advantage” of our work schedule, avoiding unnecessary downtime at the office. Like before, when I went to work, there were busy days, but there are times during the working day when it is quite empty, I will go out with friends in the office, or take advantage of reading the news on the phone, eating food. errands. God, I can’t “take advantage” to practice in the office because of the professional environment. But WFH is different, at such an empty time, spreading the carpet out for 15-20 minutes is really useful without being judged. I have abdominal exercises, leg exercises, butt exercises for only about 15-20 minutes, perfectly suitable for times when I need to take advantage of that. If anyone needs these articles, just message me and I will organize another workshop. I did a 21-day abs challenge for many students, you only studied 1 workshop to master the techniques and exercises, the rest of you practiced this exercise by yourself for 21 consecutive days according to the time frame of the teachers. You arrange your own day so it is very flexible.

3/ Take advantage of making healthier dishes:
Instead of having no time to cook before, I had to buy something from outside, or have something to eat at home. Now WFH, making dishes like boiled vegetables, salads, my meal actually takes only 15 minutes to prepare, everyone. Washed and soaked salads, fish, shrimp, and meat dishes, I choose the type that doesn’t have to be processed much, just marinate it and then bake, stir-fry or boil, dressing with only olive oil and balsamic vinegar. And for those of you who can’t eat salad like me, just eat home cooked food and increase boiled vegetables, eat half a cup of rice, eat only 2 meals a day, skip dinner or breakfast, you will still lose fat in the whole workout. . Ah, remember to avoid bottled, canned, and milk tea drinks. At home, my mouth is sad or I eat a lot, so I need to be consistent.

4/ Sleep earlier:
Evening time, we save a lot of time traveling on the street, we don’t have to take our children to school, so we take advantage of the housework, feed our children, teach them to finish school, and still have plenty of time. Take advantage of sleeping 1 hour earlier than before and you will see the difference immediately. Just get enough sleep 6-7 hours/day to have a clear mind and full of energy for a long day. Surely all of us have tried waking up early and if we can teach it, we will have an extremely effective day because we can do more things, right, sleeping early and waking up early is a habit that is well worth practicing. practice it.

I wake up at 5:30 am every day and I feel much better than before when I woke up at 8:00 am
What about you, do you have any more ways to “enjoy” to lose weight when WFH, please share with me and everyone.
In the next post, I will share about how to “enjoy” weight loss when going back to work. This is very difficult but I did it. I lost 8kg when WFH 2 months and 10kg when I went back to work in those 3 months guys.
