SOCIAL DISTANCING PART 2: FOUR TIPS TO MAXIMIZE PRODUCTIVITY WHILE WORKING FROM HOME
During this unprecedented time, many of us have found ourselves working full time from the security of home to protect ourselves, our coworkers and our families.
However, as we social distance from our coworkers, but not the demands of our jobs, we may find that working from home is more difficult than expected.
In part two of our three-part series, we’ve curated some tips and our favorite products to help you maximize productivity during this new season of working remotely. If you missed out on part one make sure to check out ways to stay entertained at home.
Create A Dedicated Space
The first step to successfully working from home is creating a dedicated space that works for you. Somewhere quiet, like a spare room or a quiet corner of your house will work just fine. Having an intentional space for your daily 9-5 will help manage your work/life balance, even if you do it all from home.
If you’re struggling to find a dedicated office area, let our Anywhere Lamp help carve out a home office that’s perfectly lit to your needs. The Anywhere Lamp is designed to fit into home office space, no matter how big or small. With an innovative design that performs and looks perfect in any space, our favorite space-saving lamp will be the perfect addition to your new office.
Organize Your Workspace
Living in a world that currently seems to be overwhelmed with chaos and uncertainty, one of the best ways to alleviate stress is to focus on the things you can control, no matter how small. Cleaning up your workspace is one of the easiest places to start, we recommend beginning by cleaning up your cable clutter.
The Philips 2 USB 2 Charger Charging Wall Tap has dual capability ports to organize and power all your tech devices at once. The multifunctional design saves space and transforms your regular outlet into an efficient charging station. Getting rid of cable clutter will tidy up your space, contribute to a better functioning work area that will help you make the most of the hours you have in the day.
If you find yourself in need of power solutions that work for your workspace, look no further than Cordinate. Our favorite 10 ft. extension cord reaches to any area of your office where you need an extra reach of power. The extra braided layer of fabric on the cable adds durability, so you can maintain your organized workspace and charge all your devices at once. Cordinate comes in a variety of colors to match whatever aesthetic best fits you and your home office.
Stay Focused and on Schedule
Our fourth and final tip is to have a schedule and stick to it. We’re creatures of habit. Having a set wakeup time and daily routine will keep you to stay motivated and on track with your workload. Look for smart solutions to keep you accountable. You can use our myTouchSmart timers to brew your coffee each morning. Start your daily schedule caffeinated and keep your favorite brew flowing without lifting a finger.
If you’re having trouble focusing during your scheduled work times, try Bluetooth headphones or speakers to block out the distractions that come with working from home. Immerse yourself in an oasis of your favorite tunes, podcasts, or whatever helps you concentrate with our EcoSurvivor Bluetooth headphones.
Even if your workspace is just a small corner of your home, or you have an entire room to work with, we hope these tips and products will help you design a space that works just as hard as you do.
