Are you working from home? Are you reading this while you put off looking at your inbox or are falling asleep in a boring online meeting? (If any of my managers are reading this, I’m not talking from personal experience, I think our meetings are the best! ) But one thing’s for certain, I bet very few of us thought we would be working from home when 2020 began.
Working from home is definitely an adjustment, so today we’re going to talk about some tech and tips to make working from home a whole lot more enjoyable.
Wakey, Wakey! Rise and Shine!
It sounds simple, but treat it like a normal workday! Set an alarm on Wakey and don’t snooze it! Get up, eat your breakfast, get ready (even if you’re shunning suits for comfy sweats and a hoodie), and grab your bag.
Congratulations, you’re ready to go to the office (aka. your kitchen table)
Make a DIY Office
One bit of advice you hear time and time again is that setting up a home office, be it a separate room or even just a designated table, helps you to get in the right mindset. If you want to take your home office setup to the next level, check out this week’s livestream here. It features some of our best tech including PowerConf and Anker’s PowerWave and PowerPad wireless chargers.
Put a ‘Do Not Disturb’ Sign On Your Home Office Door
Ok, so maybe this one won’t work, but living with other people (or pets) can be really distracting—especially when you’re all stuck indoors 24/7. You’re definitely better off investing in a pair of Life Q20 noise-canceling headphones to block out the chaos and keep you focused on your work.
Improve Your Communication Skills
Break up the monotony of working alone at home by taking your Liberty Air 2 earbuds and calling your coworkers to talk about what meal to make from the selection of tinned goods in your kitchen, the cute things your dog does, or the bizarre content celebrities are posting on Instagram—all very important work-related topics.
Take Time to Relax
Schedule breaks and step away from your laptop! When I asked my coworkers here at Soundcore, some of the best advice they gave me was to drink “Lots of cups of tea” and to “Make sure you give yourself proper work hours and a real lunchtime.”
So, crank up the volume on Flare 2 (click the link to win one for yourself) and dance around while the kettle boils or grab your Liberty 2 Pro earbuds, sit back, and imagine you’re in the studio with your favorite artist while you eat your lunch. Don’t get crumbs on the equipment!
One of the problems with working from home is that it’s so easy to sit down all day. Even if you can’t go on a walk anywhere, you could do a few laps of your backyard, follow a workout on YouTube, or even run up and down the stairs several times. And make sure you’ve got a pair of Spirit 2 sport earphones to get the motivation you need.
