COVID-19: Working from home? Our top 5 tips you need to know

Working from home

The outbreak of the coronavirus has impacted people in varying ways on an international scale. It is now more important than ever to actively manage your wellbeing by maintaining routines where possible, connect with family and friends (even if not in person), staying physically active, eating nutritious foods and seeking additional support by contacting professional support as required.

Here are our top 5 tips for staying productive & looking after your wellbeing whilst working from home.

1. Don’t stay in your pyjamas

It’s tempting to stay in your pyjamas all day when no-one else is around, but is it really a good idea? No, research shows that putting on business clothing helps adopt the mindset of your role.

2. Set boundaries and time limits — and hold yourself to them

One of the challenges of working from home is dealing with distractions, and it can be especially hard if you have other people at home. Make sure you allocate time for each task, once completed take a short break and continue the process.

3. Aim for at least one face-to-face conversation each day

Scheduled catch-ups with colleagues or even friends over FaceTime or Zoom, as this can be really helpful to minimise feeling lonely or isolated.

4. Schedule in some time for yourself

It’s important to set time for you – go for a walk, read, or you could sit and meditate. That’s key for your mental health.

5. Manage your exposure to media coverage

As this can increase feelings of fear and anxiety. Be mindful of sources of information and ensure you are accessing good quality and accurate information.
