During the COVID-19 pandemic, more Australians than ever have begun working from home. Although the benefits might include a non-existent commute and more time with loved ones, there is bound to be new challenges too.Jodie Brenton and the team at Life Resolutions are also working from home and have compiled some information and advice to help you make the most of your new routine.
- Commit to a routine– Avoid the feeling that your workday is never-ending by committing to set times to start and finish. Communicate this to your management and co-workers, and do not answer emails or texts outside your designated hours.
- Get organised– Spend some time each morning writing down your lists of goals and priorities for the day. It can be easy to feel like you have just too much to do each day, so having that list in front of you can help you stay on track.
- Take a break– If you find yourself staring at your screen without really getting anything done, take five to stretch or have a healthy snack. These short breaks can help keep you motivated throughout the day.
- Respect your mental health– It is impossible to be productive if you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or other mental health issues. This year has been a tough one for many, and it is important to reach out and seek support if you are struggling. The Life Resolutionsteam are still working, and we are currently offeringTelehealth services so everyone can access high-quality mental health care from the comfort of their own home.
