Many of us are adapting to this new COVID-19-induced environment. While it can serve as a disruption, one can still be very productive in our work. To help you settle in and feel more in control of your own work while at home, we wanted to share some helpful tips:1

  1. Create a dedicated office space. Ideally, you’ll be in an area that’s free of distractions such as a room behind closed doors. A proper desk and ergonomic work chair are better than a backache triggered by working on the sofa with your laptop. Keep your desk clean and tidy. And keep in mind to have a wall or background that suits a Skype or video call with colleagues.
  2. Maintain a routine each day. To feel more in control of your day, try sticking to your previous routine as much as possible. Keeping close to your normal schedule will give you a sense of normalcy. 
  3. Stay connected to co-workers and clients. Utilize some video tools such as Zoom, Skype, WebEx or FaceTime to share your projects and feel that connection with your team. YouTube can be a great instructor of how to use these tools.
  4. Move throughout the day. Staying active will keep you healthy and able to focus more. Look ahead into your schedule and set breaks to step away. If you have a laptop, try placing it on a box or some books to make a quick stand up desk so that you’re not just sitting all day. 

Everyone works differently–it’s a matter of finding your groove with your daily work. We hope that these tips can help you not only survive the changes, but to thrive in your professional development. Got questions or need additional tips?
