The new year has begun! If you’re like most people, you’ve probably set some New Year’s resolutions. One of the most common goals is to get healthy. Especially working at home, that often involves prolonged sitting, being healthy is a crucial part of success. This week, our experts share how they keep their work goals, while also working out, eating right, and balancing their work/life?
