Work From Home: How to be productive and healthy in times of uncertainty

Press and News7 April 20202k

As the COVID-19 pandemic is happening right now, several companies & organizations are mandating employees to work from home (WFH). 

The key to being productive and healthy when WFH is to create for yourself an environment that protects you from feelings of loneliness and isolation, while maintaining & improving important office tasks.

Work From Home: How to be productive and healthy

A work desk next to a sunlit window is recommended, and make sure you have a decent Internet connection.

Planning is important, especially when you’re at home with lots of “surprises” distracting you during working hours.

Communicate on social video channels with your colleagues, to maintain our mental well-being and team bonding.

There’s a rule of resting 5 minutes for every 25 minutes of focusing on the current task. Or you can try a 15 minutes rest for every 90 minutes of working.

Get up from your seat more often than you think and walk around the room or house. The moment of thoughtfulness and increased blood flow will improve productivity once you sit down again. Also, drink more water than you think you should.
