Many of us have been either forced to or encouraged to work from home in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the UK, we’re at an all-time high for people working from home and in April 2020, 46.6% of employment did at least some work from home.
While it’s been important for us to take a serious approach to our new working lifestyle, from learning how to sit properly at a computer to finding the best ergonomic office chair that suits us, it’s also important that we refrain from working ourselves too hard.
Stress levels are on the rise with many people citing COVID-19 and national lockdowns as a primary cause. We believe it’s healthy to take a step back for a moment from the hustle and bustle of office politics, busy deadlines and report writing and partake in something silly.
While working from home has been positive for some people, others have found it hard to switch off from work and find themselves glued to the screen even more than if they were in the office. People’s ability to have ‘microbreaks’ has been reduced and this is having a negative effect on our mental health.
With this in mind, we at ChairOffice wanted to repurpose a previous infographic we made, 12 World Records You Can Break In Your Lunch Hour, but with home-working in mind to help people take the edge off their stress levels and partake in a little mindless fun to help break up your day.
Here are 10 world records that can be attempted from the comfort of your own home. Play with your partner and/or kids in a friendly competition to see who can do the best.
How many can you break?
