6 Things to do While Working from Home Aside from Actually Working

Posted by Common Ground PH on Mar 24, 2020 5:07:49 PM

 

These are challenging times for all of us.

 

Along with the ongoing suspensions and non-stop announcements due to the pandemic COVID-19, most private entities have implemented remote work arrangements with their employees. Apart from it being a precautionary measure, it can also be a way for individuals to have more time for themselves and their loved ones.

 

Although working from home removes the hassles of commuting and preparing for work, it also gives a person more time in which s/he could eventually end up getting bored and unproductive. Here are some ideas you can try while working from home aside from actually getting your job done:

 

1. Have a fitness routine

While some people already have their routine, you can start by joining an online fitness training to keep your mind and body healthy. There are so many online activities to choose from! We know some of you might not like going to gyms so doing it indoors could be the first step to a healthier life!

 

Check out Ride Revolution for online workouts.

2. Cook better meals

Now that you're a working adult, it is time to let go of the sodium-infused college meals. When you're at home, it's best to have a meal planner every week so you can buy the ingredients in advance. Imagine how much money you could save by making your meals. Fewer worries, fewer chemicals.

3. Practice self-love

When you work in an office, it's a daily struggle to look good by using makeup, ironing your hair, and even letting yourself eat late. At home, you can free your skin by having a skincare routine to revitalize your cells and let your skin breathe. You can also try hair-care techniques for your specific hair type and avoid using heat for your hair even just for now. Also, your home-cooked meals in #2 will help you eat on time!

4.Reconnect with yourself

When was the last time you checked yourself? Now is the time to reconnect and reflect. Before you start working, think about the things you're planning to achieve and by the end of your shift, check your progress. After everything, ask yourself how you're doing and what more you can achieve. Self-motivation is your friend in taking care of yourself.

5. Read While You Can

If you ever felt uncomfortable browsing through interesting articles while you're in the office, you can freely do it now. During your free time, don't let the minutes go by without learning a new thing or two- you can read the news, check some tech-related updates, or learn money-saving techniques. The internet is full of good ideas to make the most out of your free time.
