There was a time when if you told your boss you would work from home, he would consider that
you excuse not to show up.

Now with imminent lockdown, the reality of working from any location other than the office is becoming a reality. How productive can one be at home especially where there are children in the house?

Working hours
It is no time to wake up late, drag yourself till 10 am so that you sit down. Wake up early now that
you won’t be commuting to work and be sited by office time. If all staff show up as required and
link up, then some work will be done. If well organized you will be done in half the time it takes
you in the office with no tea or lunch break. Hopefully, by lunch, you are all done and can attend
to the young ones in the home or other home chores

Create your workspace
The key to working for an unforeseeable future at home is to establish your ‘office space’ in the
home. For those with study or office space, it’s no big deal.

Define a space with a desk and chair that when you sit everyone in the house will know you are at work. Find a comfortable chair with back support and be situated in a well-ventilated and lit environment

Avoid distraction
Divide you work into 30minutes of intense work with 5 minutes break to relax your body and
mind. Place your phone in flight mode if it’s a distraction and out of sight.

Meditation
Take time to meditate in the morning or evening to find yourself. The world has provided lemon
we might as well make lemonade while at it. Practice yoga during your breaks. Find ways to
exercise such as walking up and downstairs in flats as moving out may be advised. Don’t want to
hit the gym when all this is over. Am sure will be working in your casual clothes

Time to go home
Remember to ‘go home’ after work and don’t carry work with you. Switch off from office, get
back to the home environment, and be felt. You may not be 100 percent productive but find the

balance. Switch off and prepare for tomorrow. Keep the routine because this is going to be on for
at least 3 months as things look
