Productivity in the time of a pandemic How to work from home efficiently

Productivity in the time of a pandemic How to work from home efficiently

| On 22, Apr 2020

All of us are locked up in our homes, faltering at each step to figure out the new normal. The COVID-19 pandemic has turned everyone’s lives upside down. Michelle Battersby has some simple tips to make your quarantine life easy and bearable. Of course, everyone has their way of dealing with change, for some, the transition is smooth, but for others, it is difficult to cope with. Abstain from judging people at this point. The world is in this together.

It has been a while now, and we are slowly beginning to see a pattern in our behaviour. You cannot possibly continue doing what you did before the restrictions that came with the COVID-19 outbreak, but you can develop new habits. Quit the thought of being over-productive. Apart from getting work done, it is also important to slow down. 

Keep It Cleaner CMO, Michelle Battersby‘s advice is to find happiness in little things while in isolation. She shares seven pointers that may help you with your mental and physical well-being during the quarantine. 

Tips to survive working from home

  • You must strike the right balance, prioritise your to-do list, and remain motivated. The pandemic has messed your previous schedule, and you need a new one to thrive. Make a list of daily tasks early in the morning with small breaks in between. Do not overwork yourself.
  • You need to figure out your workspace at home based on how it makes you feel. Set up a chair and a table as slouching will take a toll on your posture. Having a workstation will help you get into the right mood.
  • Try to take a creative break. Trying Yoga, freehand exercise, or a new dance routine – any way of keeping your body active during this period can help you rejuvenate. You can check out various resources online and learn a new skill. You can find a free workout guide on Keep it Cleaner; they are available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays across their social media channels. Do not give up just because you are not a pro; you will get better at it.
  • Constantly working will make you a bundle of nerves. You need to unwind by catching up on your family and friends. Social distancing does not imply emotional distance. Make video call appointments, discuss something light-hearted, share your worries, ask them about their day- staying in touch now is more important than before.
  • If you want to remain inspired, try something new. It could be anything like cooking, painting, or redecorating your room – the possibilities are endless.
  • It is important to feel grateful for what you have. Notice the small things and be grateful for them. 
  • Take this time to introspect and retrospect, if you want to process your emotions in a better way, keep a journal. Allow yourself the freedom of choosing things, if you want to binge-watch FRIENDS the whole weekend, do so without guilt and make up for it later.
