Work Efficiently From Home
Most of us dream of bringing about change in the world to make it a better place. And when the winds of change set sail, how ready are we to embrace what comes along to alter our lifestyles? Especially, when the whole world is under lockdown due to a pandemic outbreak like COVID-19?
The work-from-home situation is still better than not being able to work at all, or not having any. It may get frustrating along the course. In a lockdown situation, work in the form of distraction can help maintain mental health balance. With a well-planned schedule of errands and work, the work-life balance could improve during this lockdown period, as well.
Working from home can reduce stress, help us expand our abilities and broaden our repertoire. Also, it’s an opportunity for content creators to learn new life skills within home amidst family. At home, we can also improve our focus and enhance our productivity, which can be better than the 40 hours-a-week at the workplace!
And, with our access to technology, we can become masters of communication skills; especially folks in the marketing line of work. It is important to stay connected with our colleagues on video chats, conference calls, VPN networks, and wireless Internet. Technology is a top priority for content marketing or influencer marketing. Here’s how to make working from home efficient and productive:
Set Your Agenda for the day
A good work plan makes for a great workday. Chart out your tasks and prioritise them before kick-starting your day. Include sufficient breaks and space out your routine for overall success in your tasks.
Stick To The Business Hours
Time can fly by and days can get overwhelming by not being able to step outside. So, it’s important to remember when to clock out of work. Mixing days with nights without sleep and other routines may not be a healthy option if working from home has to be prolonged.
Hit The Right Spot
Find the perfect corner within your home that is quiet enough to take business calls, bright enough with ample light, and cosy to sit with your laptop and stationeries. Ensure you feel positive and productive in this spot.
Communication is the key to successfully working-from-home Always stay connected during work hours and be responsive. Else you may be considered as slacking off or being inefficient.
Ensure that you intake sufficient water and fluids throughout the day to stay hydrated. In these exceptional times, health is the top priority so ensure that your water intake is regular.
Find Your Zen
Take regular breaks between works to stretch and give yourself a break from your screen. Use the time to meditate, listen to music, exercise, gardening, etc. Anything that will help you relax and be able to come back to the task with a fresher mind.
