Tip #3 ‘go’ to work

What? How do you do that under quarantine?
โ €
Well…while you were working at the office, you’ve got used to waking up, taking a shower, dressing up, driving to work, enjoying a morning coffee and only then do you begin to work. You’ve done it for years. If you don’t stick to the usual rituals, your brain decides that it’s the weekend and shuts down.

What can you do about it? You can cheat your brain โ€“ “going to work” inside of your house creates an old-new ritual that can separate your working time from off-time.

Dress up ๐Ÿƒโ€

Clothing is part of our daily routine, which makes us feel ready for action. Pijamas trigger sofa and Netflix or whatever you do on a weekend, which is completely not about work. Choose comfortable but non-relaxing clothing to start your day. This will help you focus.

Create a separate workspace ๐Ÿ’ป

It should be an area that mentally prepares you for work, whether it’s a separate room or a laptop at the end of the kitchen table. Ideally it should be a place where you don’t go to rest, such as your bedroom, and that other members of your family know is your place to work.

Make a schedule ๐Ÿ“

Separate the time when the work day starts and ends as well as time for breaks. This will help to avoid stretching working hours out all day and make it easier to focus on tasks.

If you’re used to drinking coffee during coffee-breaks, find someone in the family who will join you. So, your family becomes your co-workers. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, it’s time to create or recreate useful habits that will make you more productive and happier. Remember, that routine is like a funnel – one habit triggers the next one. Why habits are so strong and how to change them, we recommend you to read
