Whether you hit the gym hard, leaving the free weights scattered all over the place or prefer leisurely walks along the beach instead, some form of physical activity is important. For knowledge workers hunched over a computer, it’s easy to lose track of your physical wellbeing.
A four-day workweek has shown promising positive effects on the physical wellbeing of employees. In addition to a state of relaxation that facilitates unbroken sleep, there is also the opportunity to get in some exercise without worrying about critical projects that are due.
Exercise, from a South African perspective, does not necessarily mean going to the gym. In fact, the era of COVID sees more people bypassing gym to seek alternatives that fit in with their lifestyles.
Even without the distraction of toddlers who refuse to go to bed, many employees struggle to fall asleep due to workplace obligations. An extra day off may just do the trick! Not keen on exercise? More sleep is also a great way for your body to repair itself.
