Keeping fit and active doesn't necessarily mean running a half marathon every week.
With so many working from home, we're just not walking as much and it's not good for us!
A brisk walk every day does wonders for your health - physical and mental.

1/Lots of tech companies and workers are making noises about leaving San Francisco, LA, NYC, and other "superstar" cities.
Some are predicting a shift to remote work and distributed companies.
Let's take a hard look at what that would actually require.https://t.co/3XYIftJAHd

New data today shows people in some of the lowest-paid, manual jobs are THREE TIMES more likely to die of Covid than those in higher-paid so-called "professional" jobs.
We can't go on like this.
All non-essential workers who can't work from home must be furloughed on full pay.

MPs claimed £9.1 million in expenses despite largely working from home during the first 2020 lockdown, compared to £8.2million in 2019. And yet, 3 million self employed have received no financial support from the government since the Covid crisis began.

Had the opportunity to work from home a couple days this week - realizing it is easy to stay home with essential workers taking care of my power, gas, hydro, groceries, uber eats, amazon, police safety, and fuel for my car.
Staying home doesn't work for everyone.

Remote work in a pandemic is different than ‘normal’ life remote work BUT what has been one of your favourite things about remote work over the last year? 🤔
For me: better work-life integration.
I’m not giving up 3-4 hours of my day to a commute and spend that w/ fam instead.

Work-wherever turns to work-whenever
Much of society — from after-school programs to the coveted time slots for TV shows — is structured around working from 9 to 5. But remote work demonstrated that hours don't matter as long as the work gets done.https://t.co/AG1LbTiOt2

The future is hybrid: post-pandemic, 22% of work days will be from home (potential productivity gain: 2.4%)
Flexibility is a perk: people are willing to forgo 7.6% of their income for the opportunity to work from anywhere pic.twitter.com/9ksslTfgFU

For many essential workers who can't work from home, travelling to work means a crowded bus trip. Instead of sitting on billions in #COVID19 relief funds, Doug Ford needs invest in more busses, and a rider cap.

School was so soul destroying I'd fake being sick at least once a week just to take days off, and they convinced me this is just how life is. Now I find myself working from home while recovering from covid (despite having unlimited PTO) because I actually enjoy my job...
