15 Sanity-Saving Tips for Working From Home And Staying Productive
Whether you do it normally or because of unexpected reasons, you may suddenly find yourself stuck at home along with a portion of the office.

Am I going mildly crazy without the usual chat around the water cooler? Yes. Yet the work must go on, so here are tips, 15 of them, that will help you stay productive.

1. Don't stay in bed, that'll just make it feel like a Sunday scrolling throught the internet instead of a workday with deadlines.

2. In fact, have a dedicated work space, otherwise the lazy Sunday phenomenon will still apply.

3. ÖThat actually involves a desk and a decent chair because this kitchen stool is killing my back.

4. Also keep the work space neat, even if youíre the messy one at work Ė cute accessories also help.

5. Get up and dress like youíre actually going to the office, see aforementioned lazy Sunday re: staying in your PJs.
6. Use video when you call people so you can still get the cosy feeling of a personal connection.

7. Youíre a whole lot closer to your kitchen but donít eat 25 snacks a day just because you can see them in your pantry now.

8. Use your commute time as exercise time, whether that be in the morning or the afternoon.

11. Give yourself things to look forward to that you might not be able to do at work, like making a nice breakfast or lunch.
