With the right mindset, home office does not have to be such Armageddon. What we first considered negative, can eventually be quite positive. Take a look at these tips:
1. PUT ON YOUR FAVORITE MUSIC
Sitting in the office is substituted for the kitchen table or alternatively, bed. And since you are not surrounded by colleagues that would get annoyed by your song list, you can put on any catchy tune any time. Depending on your mood, of course. But the Gladiator soundtrack will never grow old. :)
2. WATCHING SERIES DURING LUNCHBREAK
Did you belong to those, who ate lunch every day in a loud restaurant, bistro or even not at all? During home office no more! If you don't wish to engage with “those at home”, just put on some of your favorite sitcoms or TV shows. Bon appetit!
3. WARM RELAXING BATH
Maybe you belong to those who don't eat that much during the day, and have some soup and yoghurt for lunch BUT! - who would resist a fluffy bubble bath during break? That would never happen in the office!
4. GO TO NATURE
Yes, it is not ideal, we have to wear face masks, but after all, being in nature is never a time lost. Spring is coming, the flowers are blooming, everything is turning green. Go take a look at it.
5. YOUR FURRY FRIENDS
Everybody who owns a pet knows this - you're leaving the house and the last thing you hear is the paws scratching against the door. This is a paradise for our four legged friends! They can join us at any time, and if you're having an audio meeting, you can secretly cuddle it...or your significant other...but shhh!
6. BECOME YOUR OWN VERSION OF JAMIE OLIVER
During a traditional work week it rarely happens, that we are energetic enough to be much creative in the kitchen. But the times have changed! Fit protein pizza or home made raspberry chia seeds jam sweetened by honey? Terrace barbecue with a bit of music? Who wouldn't want that?
You can't really get comfy and walk into an office wearing tanktop and shorts, but now you can work from a sunny garden or balcony. Take a deep breath and take at least 20 minutes in the sun.
