With increasingly more people working from home, many have found it to be a bit of a transition. If you are one of the millions who are now working from home, here are some tips to help you keep your sanity, become more self-sufficient, and make the experience more enjoyable.
Maintain a Regular Sleep Schedule
Staying up late and sleeping in may be tempting, but you should stick to going to sleep around the same time every night. This will help your circadian rhythm line up in a way that will ensure you wake up every morning energized and ready to start your day.
Plant a Garden
Getting outside and planting a small garden will provide you with some fresh air and help you unwind from feeling cooped up inside all day. If you feel planting some flowers, herbs, and veggies sounds intimidating, there's ways to make it easier, like using a garden drill auger to easily and quickly create holes for whatever it is you are planting.
Creating a Space You Will Enjoy Working In
You probably have a desk set up at home that acts as your office. If you don't, you should definitely consider getting one. Find a location that you will both enjoy and be productive in. Make sure the distractions are limited, but make it fun! If you work into the evenings, you can set up a moon lamp to give your office space an inviting and serene ambiance.
Spend More Time Outside
Besides gardening, you should also consider spending time outside to simply sit back and relax. If you have a deck or patio, you can come out once you're done with work in the evening and enjoy the serenity and expansiveness. Attach an LED clamp light to any round pole, such as a patio umbrella, to enjoy an illuminated outdoor space, allowing you to read, eat, play a game with a friend or your partner, or any number of other activities.
