Tips To Stay Motivated During Your Work From Home In The Wake Of Coronavirus!


It came. It saw but let it not conquer us all! Here's how you can make the work from home scenario a little more fun!

The Covid-19 virus came as a scare to wreak havoc in the daily lives of people. From China to Italy and now India, it has spread horror all over the world. Blame it on human consumption habits or the capitalist economy we live in. We are to be blamed and we all are suffering for it! So dominant are its claws that it has put an entire world on a standstill. People are being advised on a voluntary house arrest until further notice. This means no weekend parties, no socialising and no office. In a way, we all needed it. That quiet 'me time' with no one but you in focus. Now that the 'work from home' criteria has forced us all to stay at home and take care of ourselves, here are a few tips to stay motivated that will help you adjust to it smoothly. We know, this isn't easy... your home can not be your office but these tips for working from home will help you come out of this as a hero. Not only will this downtime enrich your mind, but it will also urge you to push your boundaries and look at the bigger picture and most importantly stay positive.

Dress Up Like It Is Serious Business

There is nothing quite as comfy as working pyjamas and in your soft bed but trust us guys, GET OUT OF IT! We are saying this because the comfort of your bed can make you feel sleepy. Sure, pyjamas are forgiving but would you wear them to the office? Treat your study like it is serious business. Now by that, we don't mean you venture out in your best pantsuits and pinstripe trousers but look the part. Iron out your dress, wear that diamond earring, put on that red lipstick and do your hair. Dress in bright colours to feel more positive and motivated.

Organise The Clutter & Work In A Brightly Lit Room

A brightly lit room exudes positivity and we are sure we all need this at this hour. By brightly lit room, we are talking about taking in some natural sunlight. Choose a space that is just enough for you to set up a table and a chair. You don't need fancy equipment and furniture, just your favourite bits and bobs and a coffee mug to make it 'your' space. This will not only keep you motivated but will also ensure you declutter your space. We guarantee, your productivity will increase twofold.
