If you have the ability to work from home, chances are you’re reading this blog from the comfort of your dining room table, home office or couch. And we thank each and every one of you for doing your part to help lower the Coronavirus curve of infection.
Working from home is new to many of us, so we thought we’d share five essentials that may help you focus while you try and be productive at home. And if you’re no stranger to working from home maybe you’ll find a new tip you can add to your routine.
Set up your work space by a window. Choose your chair and work surface and if you’re able to position your set up close to some natural light a window offers it can help boost productivity and mood.
- If you like to burn candles, incense or turn on a diffuser there are some different scents that may help. If you need to get the creative juices flowing use scents like bergamot, frankincense or jasmine. If you’re trying to stay focused use scents like peppermint, lemon or eucalyptus.
Crack open that new notebook. Nothing beats the feeling of cracking the spine of a fresh notebook and writing on a crisp white page. Use it to plan out your daily tasks that can help you stay on track.
Do you have a favourite mug? Don’t forget to take breaks and stretch. A mid-day coffee or tea can be a treat you look forward to.
- Round up your house plants, because they can help boost productivity. Not only do they help clean the air and help deter illness, having greenery around can improve concentration, memory and productivity!
Do you have any tips for helping you focus while working from home? Share them with us in the comments! And cheers to a productive few weeks of working from home.
