Hybrid Work & Weight Gain
To the Hybrid Boomer – your support is appreciated
It is very easy to do so!
Snacks and the refrigerator are now easy targets for mindless eating while attending conference calls or fulfilling daily work tasks.
Before you know it the chips, cookies, and extra sandwich will show up on your body in the form of weight gain. I have encountered co-workers who are now 10 to 20 pounds heavier since the pandemic. It is widely accepted and explained away as pandemic weight gain, however there is no excuse for it.
There are steps that can be taken to avoid picking up the unwanted pounds.
One routine that I established at the beginning of my hybrid work was a daily walk. I have a dog, so it was easy to get started by just walking him. I began to really enjoy the opportunity to get out of the house, so once the dog was exhausted (he will only walk with me for a half mile) I extended my journey and I now walk 2 to 5 miles a day.
Being a Hybrid Boomer does not mean that we do not care about our appearance. Besides, it is summer time and the beach is calling!
