If you’re one of the fortunate Americans who can work from home during the COVID-19 crisis, you might find it hard to be productive. Here are some tips that can help you do your job even under difficult circumstances.
Create a Dedicated Workspace
You may not be fortunate enough to have a room for an office, but it can help to set a space just for work. At the very least, if you must work from your kitchen table, put everything away at the end of the day when you have dinner to give yourself some separation from work and home.
Take Breaks Away From Your Computer
When you live where you work, it’s important to get away from your desk. In a perfect world, you’d go to the coffee shop for a change of pace or get lunch out. With COVID-19, you may just have to take a walk around the block or just sit on your patio to give you a different view.
Don’t Lose Touch With People
COVID-19 is making it difficult to meet up with people, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a strong social life. Use technology to keep up with your friends and colleagues.
Make Your Workspace Comfortable
If you’re sitting at an uncomfortable desk for seven to eight hours a day, you’re going to be grumpy. Try to get an office chair to work in. Make sure you have the right equipment.
Give Yourself a Break
Everyone is under a lot of stress with the uncertainty of the times. Set goals and try to beat them, but when you don’t meet your goals, be kind to yourself. You’ll find the right space and get into a mindset to work more effectively as you deal with the problems that occur.
