Since the majority of us are working from home now, the urgent matter is how to work productively. I gathered some tips here to help you.
Organize Your Space
We have families and pets, and now everyone is sitting at home. For example, Tom Johnson, a technical writer, tells that his college daughter has returned home as all classes have transitioned online. They had to re-arrange their bedroom situation again, adding in another bed and shifting around who shares which rooms among the 4 kids. So, packing in 6 people into a 1,000 square foot home with one bathroom means everyone has a small allotment of space.
How to be productive in this situation? The best way is to organize your space wisely. You should not work sitting on the bed – your space and desk should inspire you to work. Here is how Tom’s space looks.
Bring the necessary things from your office, if you need something like headphones to improve your experience in meetings, order them. Unfortunately, we can’t exactly know how long the pandemic and the quarantine regime will last, so be patient and make your working hours comfortable and productive as you can.
When you’re at home, your daily office regime is ruined – it can be easy to forget about your healthy habits and eat a lot of snacks instead of having a proper meal. That’s why try not to buy unhealthy snacks at all. During the pandemic, it’s essential to eat properly to boost your immune system. If you want to make a light meal, eat fruits or vegetables.
Don’t forget about Sport
In some countries, people can’t leave their houses, but it doesn’t mean you should only work and then sit on your sofa to spend the evening. Quarantine is a great period to spend time with your family. For example, play active video games like Just Dance. You will not only have fun but also get a little exercise.
Because of the virus, many conferences were canceled but some of them will be virtual, and it’s a good chance to listen to speakers of different industries and learn something new.
