Morning Yoga Helps with Workday Focus, According to New Survey

Still struggling to find your WFH groove? A recent survey of nearly 1,000 full-time professionals in health care, education, and the food and hospitality industries just prior to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic found that a morning yoga routine helped people focus better on work throughout the day.

The research, funded by FitRated, studied the effects that various exercises at certain times of day have on job performance and satisfaction..

Results indicated that a morning yoga routine was most effective for workday focus. The survey results also showed that remote workers practiced more yoga during the workweek than those who worked onsite, and those who worked a combination of remote and onsite.

Practicing in the p.m. had its own benefits, especially when combined with aerobic activity: yoga paired with running was the best way to work out problems and find solutions after a long day of work, according to survey responses. And 26 percent of survey respondents said they used yoga during the workday as an alternative to sugary energy drinks and caffeine to help beat midday slumps.
