Sick of WFH? Here’s How to Stay Productive

I’m currently writing this in the pajamas I haven’t yet changed out of, so this post was probably written FOR me. Director of Account Management Lysa Vincent shares her five tips to make working from home easier, more productive, and stress-free. From scheduling breaks to what to wear for success, including stats to back it up.

Whew, ty, you’re welcome. Let’s face it, ever since we have been working from home we have all needed a little guidance (sometimes a lot more), so any help that is made available we need to grab that! For instance, if you’ve got a slow internet connection, don’t put up with it, you need to look into some xfinity internet deals. It can provide you an insight on whether they can do something to boost that internet and stop you from freezing during your skype meetings with your boss.

As for the boredom, you can think of improving a few of the career skills that can help you in the future. You can try joining a training program for aws certification or DevOps courses that can provide you with knowledge of the IT sector and help you grow in the industry. Moreover, these types of classes can also help in getting a promotion in your office once you start taking more responsibilities in different departments of your office.

Moreover, if you are sitting in the same room and working for hours, you may also start feeling gloomy and depressed. It could be common for various people; however, as a remedy, you can look for solutions such as CBD vapes (check out https://www.canadacannabisdispensary.ca/product-category/vapes/ or similar websites for more details) or try doing some stretches between work hours. You can also take short breaks while working and go out for a 10-minute walk to get your mind to freshen up.

You may also feel bored by looking at those boring walls, and you may want to change the room or look for a better place. One option could be a home office, built in the midst of a beautiful backyard and equipped with an appealing shed (click to view home office shed designs). An office built in the garden may help you in increasing productivity and creativity. One helpful tip down, a few more to go…
