7 missing cues at home that are vital to your wellness

7 missing cues at home that are vital to your wellness

If working from home makes you feel more stressed and tired, you're not alone. More than 40% of people reported stress and anxiety every week since the pandemic started. Experts have spoken, "drink more water," "keep exercising," "have enough sleep," and "call your friends and family." Easy right? If only we can remember to do them.

The most significant difference between working in the office and at home is environmental cues. Without cues, we simply won't remember to do a behavior we need, no matter how simple and important it is. We've identified a list of all missing cues at home.

This lack of healthy cues even surprised us. We all have limited willpower to spend each day. On the days where work is demanding and hectic, which is 90% of the workdays, self-care becomes the last thing we remember to do.

We believe you already have the motivation to take care of yourself. With timely and thoughtful reminders, we can help you stay well whether you are working from home or back in the office when the pandemic ends!
