Since the Covid-19 lockdown started, many of us all around the world have been forced to ditch our daily routines and stay home. Unfortunately, staying home means we have had to be creative and set up workspaces in remote corners of our homes.
Here are our top tips to ace working from home and make the ‘new normal’ more normal.
Carpe Diem – Seize the day
When you cut the daily commute out of your routine, it frees up around an hour of our morning, making it all too easy to have a cheeky sleep in. Don’t do that! If you make a conscious effort to stick to your usual routine, you will feel more productive, trust us!
Have a shower, brush your teeth, get dressed, brush your hair and apply your skincare essentials. Obviously, during the lockdown, getting hold of our essentials has been a little more difficult.
Shop closures and longer lead times on delivery means we have had to find alternatives to our daily essentials, but it’s refreshing when we find that one of those alternatives ends up being just as good, if not better than our holy grail and for a fraction of the price. Why not try the Flourodine Ultra Active toothpaste? Its micro cleaning crystals and anti-bacterial formula reduce plaque and keep teeth clean, and breath fresh all day. Now your breath is minty fresh, don’t neglect your lips. Keep them soft and supple with our Lipice balms. Containing Aloe Vera, Grapeseed, Shea butter and Jojoba, Lipice provides long-lasting hydration.
The perfect workspace
Now you’re ready to start the day, make sure your work-space is peaceful, clean, organised and ambient. You don’t want to start the day with clutter and end the day with a killer headache.
Firstly, where possible you should try to limit distractions – if you have a home office, shut the door; if not, make sure kids and pets are entertained and won’t be hovering around feet whilst you’re in the middle of that important call.
Next, make sure your chair is comfortable and set up correctly allowing you to sit comfortably with the correct posture, there’s nothing worse than trying to concentrate with a backache.
Make sure you are situated near a power outlet in case your gadgets need charging. It is also a good idea to assess the lighting ambiance in your space, the wrong lighting can strain your eyes. We recommend Supacell LED bulbs, they come in a range of different hues, sizes and styles to suit any light fixtures you may have, including dimmable. Manufactured to the highest standards, the Supacell LED range guarantees long-life and won’t let you down.
After the end of a long day, log off and enjoy the rest of your evening. Don’t forget to stay active. Remember, a healthy body means a healthy mind. Take a walk, do some yoga or dust off your home treadmill and get your heart pumping.
