Baremetrics’ Rules for Self-Care

My employer, Automattic, is a fully-distributed company; meaning that my colleagues are hired regardless of their location. You can work from home, from coffee shops, from an RV that’s currently on the move, or you can expense fees for a coworking place. (By the way, we’re always hiring.)

Today I learned of another company that works remotely, Baremetrics. I wanted to share their rules for Self-Care in their remote environements:

  1. Have set work hours and stick to them.
  2. Exercise every single day.
  3. Alternate between sitting and standing.
  4. Eat well.
  5. Take frequent breaks.

Having worked remotely for a year, I will vouch that these are very good rules. I’m only now starting to figure out the true value of some of these.
