Wales are currently in a level 4 lockdown.
At Level 4 you must:
Following the government's guidance when you must work from home (WFH) if you can. Even though working from home is not unknown to us with this third lockdown, it still comes with its fair share of challenges. Here are some useful tips to help you stay productive whilst working from home.
It's crucial to have the right mindset when WFH, but don't be to hard on yourself. Allow yourself time to adjust and don't beat yourself up if you're having a down day where it feels like everything is going wrong. Remind yourself you are working during a pandemic and everyone is having to adapt.
It can be hard to stay on track with all the distractions home has to offer. Planning your day out and prioritising your most urgent tasks for first thing in the morning will ensure that you stay on track and maximise your day.
In an ideal world you will have a room that your can make into your new home office. However not everyone is so lucky, try and find a space that you can dedicate to your work space. This could be anything to a dining or kitchen table, but make sure its a space that you can take yourself away from at the end of the day.
This might sound like a broken record but keeping hydrated is so important. Not only does this improve your sleep quality but it keeps you motivated and awake. Treat yourself and buy a new snazzy water bottle that will encourage you keep hydrated through the day.
Make sure that you are taking regular breaks and even schulde them into your day. Stepping away from your computer screen or phone for 10 minutes can increase your work productivity and leave you feeling refreshed.
Working away from the office and your colleagues can be lonely, ensure you keep regular contact with your team. Online communication can be challenging but hosting a daily team meeting through Zoom and Skype allows your the opportunity to check in with your team.
As many of us are cooped up inside and sitting at the desk for the majority of the day doing some exercise can really help to break up the day. Exercising doesn't have to mean continus squat jumps or at home ab workouts, but can be as simple as going for a walk and getting some fresh air.
