Own your time

If you normally work from home, you may find yourself with family members in your precious workspace. Set boundaries and manage expectations of anyone who demands your time.

Determine what’s necessary and prioritize accordingly. Stay focused so you can work efficiently and have more time for other endeavours.

Practice self-care

In addition to making sure your work gets done, take care of your physical and mental well-being during this sensitive time. Set yourself up for success by getting enough physical activity and maintaining your mental health.

This can include meditating, journaling, or dancing. Short bursts of these activities may help you let out some pent-up energy so you can focus on your work.

Stay active

Even if you spend a lot of time at home, you likely take occasional breaks outside. Incorporate more exercise into your daily routine and make a point to get outside if you can, even if it’s to the balcony of your building.
