Millions of people didn’t have a choice about working from home when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Now, the concept of the typical workplace has shifted for many people, and you may be among those experiencing it. Perhaps you haven’t gone back to the office, or you split time between work and home with a hybrid schedule. While there are many benefits to this arrangement, it’s common to grow tired of working from home.
Remote work can be draining at times. Your home and office lives blend together in the same space, so it’s sometimes difficult to put work behind you at the end of the day. You may feel like you never get a break, and that can be exhausting.
It’s important to learn how to fight fatigue at work, especially if your office is your spare bedroom, kitchen counter, or backyard patio. The good news is there are several strategies you can try—including IV therapy—to beat working from home fatigue.
Fighting tiredness at work is hard, especially if you can lay down on a couch during a meeting or meet a deadline in your pajamas. At home, you may also tend to do more sitting than you would do in an office, where you would otherwise be walking to a colleague’s cubicle or the local lunch spot.
And those long, sedentary days can be a real problem. Sitting has been called “the new smoking” in recent years because of the negative effects it can have on your health. These can include a higher risk of:
You may also have a greater risk of mortality from an overly sedentary lifestyle, compared to people who are more physically active throughout the day.

These are hard symptoms to navigate. It can be demoralizing to try to get through the day. For example, many people may end up thinking, “working from home has made me lazy.” But it’s not laziness; it’s actually bone-deep fatigue.

Sometimes, though, your exhaustion may be so intense that you need extra support. IV therapy is one of the best ways to reduce fatigue because it addresses many of the common symptoms you experience when you’re exhausted. It also works fast: IV treatments infuse vitamins, minerals, and supplements directly into the bloodstream for the most absorption and the greatest effectiveness.
Tired of working from home? Here are some of the ways you can benefit from IV therapy.
An IV infusion with energy-enhancing ingredients such as B vitamins can help reduce the feeling of fatigue and promote a vibrant sense of well-being. More energy gives you the power to take back your day and be more effective at work.
Your fatigue may be caused by dehydration (chronic lack of fluids in the body). IV therapy is renowned for rapid rehydration with high-quality sterile saline solutions. IV treatments rebalance the body so it has the necessary fluids to function at its best.
It’s no surprise that extra energy will put more bounce in your step. An IV can also contain ingredients such as magnesium, known for alleviating stiff, achy muscles and joints and easing headaches. It’s easier to be more active when your body isn’t feeling the aches and pains associated with desk-bound jobs.
By supplying increased energy and hydration, IV therapy can also help you feel sharper mentally. Try an IV with vitamin B12 to support mental clarity and promote better concentration and focus.
IV therapy can revitalize work from home fatigue, improving your overarching sense of well-being. Rocky Mountain IV Medics can partner with you, providing high-quality IV drips, such as the Myers’ Cocktail, that are packed with vitamins and minerals and can be customized with additional supplements.
