We’ve all heard it said that change is the only constant in life, and the past few months have certainly lived up to that claim. Almost every facet of day-to-day life has been affected by either Coronavirus or the subsequent shutdown. Some of us have been able to continue our normal work schedules without any major disruptions; but even for those lucky few, the approach to tackling everyday tasks has shifted.
From an increased reliance on technology to the absence of almost all face-to-face client interaction, it’s important for all of us to adapt in order to maintain the same level of excellence our clients have come to expect.
Whether we’re working from home on dining-room tables surrounded by screaming toddlers or back in the office with empty desks all around, here are a few go-to tips to staying productive during these uncertain times:
- Keep a routine – even without a commute to worry about, a consistent schedule can help bring some stability to a new work environment.
- Take a walk – every few hours, a quick break with some light exercise can really help stimulate your brain and reset your focus.
- Make contact – reach out to a coworker at least once a day, even if it’s not necessary, to reinforce those important connections.
- Treat yourself – these are stressful times, so keep a few snacks or a post-work drink around as a reward for making it through the day!
