Social Distancing Combat Coronavirus and Still Get Work Done

All over the world, offices are shutting down, schools are being closed and activities are almost coming to a halt. These measures are part of the efforts to combat and reduce the number of people getting sick from the COVID-19. But thankfully, you can still carry out your business functions and official tasks from home while practicing social distancing.

Right now, the most reliable way to work without getting close to one another is to work from home. Many tasks that are done in a conventional office can be accomplished at home. At least, life has to go on while we hope for divine intervention regarding this plague that has befallen the world.

So, What Do You Need to Work From Home?

It does not take a lot to set a home office. Actually, you don’t need any expensive gadget or furniture. You can work from the comfort of your home with simple tools like your computer or tablet, and an internet access. These are the basic things you need for your work at home.

In addition, you also need to choose a serene and secluded spot in your home. The essence is to prevent undue distractions. So, whether you are the programmer in your office, the copywriter, the administrator or social media marketer, you can sit at home and do your work as though you are working in your regular office.

How Can You Work Effectively From Home?

Except you are used to working from home or have practiced working from home a couple of times, you can find it a challenging task. The challenge comes from not being accustomed to working from a comfort zone. The lure to run off to the kitchen, or abandon the task at hand for other home chores is common when you work from home.

Also, if you have a family, that is another huge distraction since everybody is staying at home during this corona virus breakout. Your kids would definitely seek your attention even on a slightest matter. And, it may be difficult to refuse your family members’ call for your attention.

So, in order to work effectively and productively from home in this season, you should adopt the following measures;

  • Set schedules. You should create a work schedule alongside home activities, with a time frame attached to the items on your schedule. Be as realistic as possible when you set schedules. For instance, it’s unrealistic allotting 1 hour to a task that should take more than two hours to get it done.
  • Get Everyone to Commit to the Schedule. You should make your family commit to the schedule. In essence, they should know they can’t come and knock at your door when you are working, except it is urgent.

Safety Tip: Keep an eye on your kids and entire family while working from home. If you suspect any health symptom that needs urgent attention, don’t hesitate to take necessary action.
