You and I, we are experiencing the current outbreak of COVID-19. Many of us are now working from home due to the rapid spread of the virus. With our normal jobs, we are used to waking up early, doing our morning routine, and heading to work. Suddenly, not being in an office environment can be unmotivating since our brain has adapted that going to work is a place to focus. Life will often throw us off balance at times but this is a challenge we can overcome. Let’s being with a few arrangements.
KEEP THE USUAL WORK SCHEDULE
Working from home remotely means you have a flexible schedule. In order to keep our natural work habits, it would be best to wake up at the same time you get ready for work. Think of it as waking up early like you would for a traditional job. It will increase productivity and you won’t need to make another adjustment once you are back to the office.
Then Give yourself time to get ready and ease your mind into work mode. As tempting as it may be to work in your pajamas, change into normal work clothes. Pour yourself a cup of coffee or have breakfast to get your mind rolling and ready to achieve the day.
DEDICATE YOUR WORKSPACE AT HOME
One of the main reasons people lack motivation while working from home is due to the inability to focus. A great way to achieve that is to keep work separate from leisure. Find a suitable place in your house to dedicate your full attention to your assignments.
