Hey y’all! Since everyone is stuck at home amid the Covid-19 pandemic I thought it might be appropriate to do my favourite tips and tricks for working from home.
My first tip is to structure your day. Follow the same timetable or schedule you normally do just to get yourself back into the routine. Wake up at the same time you usually do and instead of your normal commute there’s suddenly an extra hour in your morning.
Yeah I know this one was expected but it’s only repeated so often because it’s true! Use that extra hour in the morning for some yoga or a run it’ll increase your focus and energy levels for the rest of the day. Besides you deserve it! Try a Zumba class or maybe some Pilates on YouTube. If you need some inspiration my favourite workout apps at the moment are 5k runner, yoga studio, workout women and les mills on demand.
Whether you go for a run in the morning or walk the dog at your lunch break fresh air really helps me focus and clear my mind. (It’s also an excuse to get out of your house!) I also recommend working near a window so you can use natural light as well as get a nice breeze through the window.
Yep there is gonna be a use for all those 2020 planners we rushed out to buy and are now sitting under a pile of dust. Well it’s time to get them out again. Start setting yourself mini goals/to do list (eg finish blog post, go for a run, hand in history assignment etc) it’ll give you a set task. Then when you check it off your list you can feel a sense of accomplishment and you can physically see what you achieved that day (other than binge watch Netflix) I know the struggle!
That’s all for now! I hope you found these tips useful. Please remember to stay safe and we’re all in this together.
