HERE’S HOW YOU CAN CONTINUE ENJOYING YOUR LIFE IN A PANDEMIC
A pandemic is not a sign that everything you are working towards is coming to an end. Its presence does not mean you should stop developing yourself financially, physically, or mentally. You can still enjoy your life while coping with a pandemic.
EFFECTIVE TIPS TO CONTINUE WITH YOUR PROFESSIONAL LIFE FROM HOME
We still need to work, right? Here is the rub: some people will have no choice in the matter.
In a true pandemic, things like the service and entertainment industries will be closed. That means restaurants, spas, movie theaters, hair salons, hotels, cruise lines, and oh. so. much. more.
I am also a travel writer and had all of my press trips cancelled – not that I am complaining.
The trick on all of that is to be able to pivot what you do, so you can still bring home a paycheck.
I talked about a digital Etsy store on my main site – and it helped me make some cash – so I replicated it over and over with different themed stores. I also coordinated a Midwest Road Trip book – since we were all pretty much trapped within our own state borders.
For those that were able to keep working, they had to look at embracing technology and doing as much as it of possible from home – from their computer.
Set up a home office
Advancing or maintaining your professional life does not have to stop because you are homebound during a pandemic. You can still achieve the same excellence that you are well-known for at the office while at home. There are a few things you can do to make the home environment conducive to office work. Setting up a home office is a great place to start. Make sure your home office is as tidy as the office you usually use.
If possible, you can even dress formally to give yourself and everyone around the house the sense of how important your office hours are. Allocate 6 to 8 hours to continuing with your work and do not allow any interruptions. Make sure your home office resembles your regular office where possible.
Talk to your loved ones about the need for quiet hours
Working from home has many advantages, including controlling your schedule, working on your terms as well as maximizing on time otherwise wasted traveling to the office.
Nonetheless, working from home comes with its share of disadvantages, such as constant interruptions as well as noise. Therefore, talking to your loved ones about the need for quiet hours free from interruptions is essential.
Make sure everyone understands that you will not tolerate any disturbances unless there is an emergency. In this way, you will be able to concentrate better, and it will show in the quality of the work that you produce. That is how you can continue enjoying your work in a pandemic.
Understand working from home is as crucial as working from the office
The quality of your work is determined by how you approach the work you do. If you treat working from home differently from working from the office, the quality of your work will show. Avoid producing below standard practice by carrying out work you do from home the same way you handle work from the office.
Keep in mind that all that matters is that you are producing quality work. Stay in touch with your supervisor and your colleagues if you are working on a project that requires communication.
