How To Transition From 9-5 to Work From Home
During this time alot of people are transitioning to a work from home lifestyle as we fight through the rona. Many may think Work From Home lifestyle is all fun and games until you have no more snacks and you come up gaining the Work From Home 15. It’s important to keep a structure during this time. I’m sharing my tips to make working from home a productive routine.
Get Out Of Bed
Getting out of bed helps your brain to switch from relax mode to work mode. Get out of bed, make your bed and don’t go back unless you take a wellness nap or are ending your work day.
Create A Routine
Keeping a routine is so important. Now that you have no commuting time, take time making your breakfast or getting ready in the morning. However, make sure you’re still not late for the work day.
Get Ready For The Day
When you get ready, you feel ready and are more confident for the day. Although, you’re staying at home, it doesn’t hurt to spruce up for those zoom meetings. Maybe your coworker, aka roommate will still send you a compliment.
Take A Break
Take your lunch break as you normally would, except now you can actually fix yourself a nutritional meal. You can even take it a step further and transfer the money you would’ve spent on lunch into your savings.
Take A Wellness Walk
Take a wellness walk. Get out of the house and breathe some fresh air. No point in staying cooped up all day. It is recommended to get at least 30 minutes of exercise. It’s a great way to clear your head and get some fresh air.
Be Present When Doing Tasks
In a 9-5 schedule, it can be hard to be present during certain tasks if you are on a time constraint to get things done. Now with a bit more freedom, it makes for the perfect opportunity to be present when doing tasks, like brushing your teeth, makeup or event getting ready for the day. Slow down and smell the roses.
I know this is a tough time for many, but if you are fortunte to still have a job, in good health and a roof over your head, be thankful. As cliche as it may sounds, people are slowly losing these things because of the current state of the world financially.
