The likely extension of the lockdown in India might have us working from home a little longer. While all this may seem underwhelming, we can turn this around and make working from home a lot better.
These 5 tips are bound to help.
Get dressed for work
Don’t start your day in your PJs. The simple act of getting ready serves as a signal that it’s time to wake up, and get work done. So take a shower, put on your work clothes and get started.
Create a comfortable workspace
Try to make your workspace comfortable where you can devote 8-9 hours of the day. Entering your designated workspace will help you stay motivated from the start of your day.
Stick to real work hours
One should be clear about both working and non-working hours. It is best to stick to regular work hours and use the rest of the time to recharge and prepare for the next day.
Socialise with your coworkers
When everyone is working from home, social interactions are limited. Talk to your colleagues over Slack and check on them regularly. Schedule all the meetings as usual. This will help everyone feel comfortable about working from home.
Stick to a to-do list
A simple to-do list can do wonders for keeping one both organised and productive. By creating a list, one does not need to memorise all the essential tasks and the pleasure of crossing all the completed ones is deeply satisfying.
Let’s not get demotivated, and instead, utilise this time to be more productive.
Stay at home, stay safe.
