For many working remotely for the first time, the line between work life and home life is blurry. A recent study conducted by Qualtrics found that 44.4% of those now working from home say their mental health has declined. There is no better time than now to invest in the health of your people.

Meditation apps
Several mobile apps can help people unplug and focus on their mental health. These three would make for a great reward:

Virtual gyms/workout accessories
Remote work can impact not only mental health but also physical health. Employees mustn’t be compromising their physical health for their jobs. You can promote physical health with interactive home gyms like Mirror. It’s pricey at $1,495 and is likely out of your budget. For more affordable options, you might want to consider workout accessories like:

Meal Subscription
Proper nutrition is vital for maintaining good health. Promote healthy eating with subscription food services.

Bonus Idea

Everyone loves music (well, almost everyone). Give the gift of music with a subscription to Spotify/$9.99/month.
