Working hard? Or hardly working?

Woah, the word just took a gigantic left turn! How are you adjusting to this new way of living?

Work From Home Self-Care Tips

  • Take a shower and put on something comfy and cute. Getting out of your pajamas and putting on clean clothes just makes you feel better.

  • Have a designated workplace that's not your bed or sofa. It can be as simple as the kitchen table.

  • Find a chair that doesn't hurt your back or bottom. 

  • Make a schedule. Give yourself plenty of space to move things around as your day shifts. 

  • Limit screentime and take breaks often. Something as simple as a stretch or a walk around the block will give your eyes some rest from the blue lights. 

  • Pause for lunch. Take the time to make yourself something you enjoy. It doesn't need to be fancy, just yummy. 

  • Manage your expectations. Not every day is going to be your best — no need to add beating yourself up to the to-do list. 

  • Be gentle on yourself as you adjust to a new way of working. 

  • And also, be gentle to the irritated co-worker on the zoom call. They are also adjusting to a new way of working. 

  • Have fun and enjoy your independence.
