Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past couple of months you know that the global Covid-19 pandemic is still running rampant forcing many people to work from home. A lot of these people will be working from home for the first time, which means they’ll have to figure out how to stay on track to be productive whilst in an environment unsuited for the task but this is far from impossible if you set up a good workspace and routine.
AVOID FEELING ISOLATED
Still, even with these tools and techniques, it can still be quite easy to feel somewhat isolated due to the abrupt change from busy office to relatively (or completely) empty home. Its important to sustain a semblance of normalcy during this time and communicating with others is a great way to do this. Try to keep up a sense of camaraderie with your workmates in unconventional ways by having an “after-work drink” over Zoom to socialise and chat about non-work-related topics, such as how you’re coping during the lockdown period. After all, we’re all in this together!
