2020 is shaping up to be a year full of unexpected twists and turns. We've stepped into the "new normal," as it's been dubbed, and it doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon.
One thing is certain: over the past year, our homes have genuinely become our sanctuaries. We now spend so much of our waking hours in our living rooms, with most people working from home and only venturing out for necessary errands.
Even after the pandemic subsides, remote work is projected to remain popular. Even though you're at home, you're exhausted? Don't worry, it's perfectly normal. Learning to create a balance between work and family life is the key to staying sane and on top of what needs to be done. Because they are taking place in the same location, this can be difficult. However, if you reside in an area that has been designed to suit your future needs,
Yes, time management is essential.
Working from home seem appealing at first. Who doesn't want to avoid the long morning travel by going to work in their pajamas? However, if left unchecked, your job life might steadily seep into your other obligations and interests. It's tempting to get out of bed and instantly get on to check your email for the day, but sticking to a routine will help you stay on track.
Make time for coffee or breakfast when you get up early. Take a bath, change into your work clothes, and then "clock in" as usual. Sticking to a routine and “clocking out” at the conclusion of your work hours to spend quality time with family can make you feel less burdened.
Make room for both work and play.
Gem Residences Work Spaces, Artist’s Perspective
Assign a location in your condo unit to serve as your office. In your bedroom or living area, a functioning workstation with a comfortable chair is more than adequate. This is where you'll be from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Avoid working in areas where you would normally relax, such as your bed or couch. You may unintentionally link rest areas with work, making it more difficult to properly appreciate your downtime.
Limits are both healthy and necessary. When you live in a neighborhood designed for families, everyone can find a quiet corner during the day, whether it's mom on the phone or the kids working on their online lessons. If your desk is near a window with a nice view, you'll get bonus points!
