The current Coronavirus pandemic means the majority of us are now working from home; which can be an isolating experience if you live alone, or a chaotic one if you live with children or housemates. To help you through this time, we’ve put together put together some top tips on how to boost your wellbeing and make the most of the situation.
Maintain regular hours
Getting up and partaking in your normal morning routine (minus the commute) before sitting down to start work will help draw a line between work and leisure time. The same goes at the end of the day. Try and set a time to finish work and turn off your laptop then go for a walk to underline the fact you are now done for the day.
Create a dedicated office space
In a similar vein, try and keep a separate space in your home just for working. If you live in a small flat and don’t have the luxury of a study, create a ‘work corner’ in your living room with a separate desk you use solely for work. When you step away from this desk then you’re no longer in work mode.
Regular exercise can up your self-esteem, help you concentrate, improve your sleep, and make you feel better. There’s currently plenty of online workouts available.
Keep in touch
Whether you’re using Zoom, email, WhatsApp or an old-fashioned telephone, stay in touch with your team mates and maintain regular communication. It’s always good to be kept in the loop and have that face to face contact.
