|Make a dedicated workspace
Avoid working from your bedroom, it’s important to keep that space sacred and stress-free. Try to designate one area for work and get everything you need before you start each day (chargers, pens, paper, candles etc) so once you’re in the space you can focus on the work at hand.
|Create and stick to a routine
It’s easy for the lines between home and work to blur. You may find yourself checking emails after hours or starting later than usual. Try to follow your normal work routine and keep it consistent both in the office and at home, even down to the small things like going to bed and waking up at the same time will help you feel more in control.
|Give yourself a break
Breaks are important not only for productivity but also for managing stress and your mental health. Be sure to take your lunch break and smaller 5–10-minute breaks throughout the day to get fresh air, stretch your legs and step away from the screen.
|Check-in with others
Meet a friend out for coffee, or if you know someone isolating drop a treat or two off at their front door. A simple action like asking how someone’s day is can put a smile on their face and help them feel less alone.
