Quarantine is well under way and while many of us can agree social distancing might save our souls, working from home is not all it’s cracked up to be.
We’re all finding ourselves cooped up at home. Whether that means you’ve converted your spare bedroom into your office, or the dining room table has become your new coworking space, we’re all adjusting… to say the least!
How do you stay focused and make sure you stay professional even if you’re trapped in your quarantine office? We’ve got some ideas to make working at home workable.
To make sure you look fresh on those 8am Zoom calls…
A simple adjustment will make you look that much more professional. Just because you’re not heading into the office on a daily basis doesn’t mean you can’t care about how you look. Even if you’re only sporting the top half of your outfit, you want to look put together and pristine. That way your ideas and arguments will carry their weight. Shed some light on your face to enhance your work from home persona in these dark times. You’ll rule WebEx.
Look fresh to death on your morning WebEx call with this monitor-mounted light! Check the price!
When your dog is taking over every conference call…

Improve your golf game, even if your local course is closed
As summer approaches, normally you’d be stepping outdoors for a round of golf. Now you and your clients have to practice social distancing and that means riding in the same golf cart is out of the question. As country clubs and parks close down during this pandemic and crisis, you may be left a little rusty. Why not stay in practice?

Enhance your coffee breaks despite being confined to home
Now that you don’t have to race out the door, there’s no excuse not to take an extra 3 minutes on your morning coffee routine. Ditch the keurig and spice things up a little bit. Get ready for cold brew or pick up a manual espresso pump to jolt up your coffee breaks at home. Just because you’re at the home office and your neighborhood barista is out of work, doesn’t mean you can’t savor your coffee break all the same.
