Convert Your WorkloadThere are tough times ahead and while relief packages are available for some, they won’t match a full-time income. So it’s time to figure out how you can work from home to guarantee some extra cash. Let’s get creative!
Zoom is also great for staying in touch with family and friends. Physical distancing is one thing but socialising is good for our mental health, so, ZOOM or SKYPE your family and friends regularly.
House to Home Office
Dress the Part
But that doesn’t have to mean a shirt, dress pants and heels - just looking presentable will do nicely. After all… you’re at home! Try a BJ’s PJs Adele dress, or Bettina top and Lauren Long Pants combo for a smart-ish home office look. You can finally be comfortable in your work clothes and reap the benefits of home office life.
Set a Schedule
If you have space, assign yourself an office-like room in the house. Whether you’re lucky enough to have an actual study, have a desk or waist-heigh table in your bedroom or living room, make that room a no-go zone for the rest of the household during your working day.
Balance and Self-Care
And what do we mean by that? In isolation, the best forms of self-care can be grooming, body brushing, meditation, yoga, gentle exercise or a heart-pumping workout. Other ways to show ourselves love and practice balance include taking time out to be creative, play with the kids, cook ourselves nourishing food, and Skyping in mum for a cuppa.
