Since Corona, home office has become the new normal for almost everyone, but this week we’re celebrating the official Work from Home Day! “What’s there to celebrate?”, some of you may be wondering now? Well, we’re going to show you! With a few little tricks, your home office time can almost be as exciting as time spent in the office. Except for your dear colleagues, whom you surely miss as much as we do.
1. Get out of those sweatpants!
We know how tempting it can be to slip straight from pajamas into comfy sweatpants, especially when no one behind the camera can see your cozy bottoms. But we promise you, even if no one but you is home, you’ll start the day off feeling a lot better if you’ve taken a few minutes to pick out a nice outfit. Not only will this be good for your well-being, but it will also get you back into the right work routine. Then, when you swap your work clothes for something casual in the evening, you can officially end your work day and feel more relaxed.
2. Goodbye distractions
The laundry pile is calling, the dishwasher is beeping and you’d like to vacuum right away when you see a few crumbs on the ground. We have all been there! When you’re at home, it’s easy to get distracted by your household and other small everyday tasks. But wait – working from home means you have to hold yourself accountable and stay productive. To manage all this, try setting aside blocks of time where you consciously do something for the household. Also, it can help to write down what distracts you for a week and then tackle those things. Another deciding factor is your work location, but we’ll get to that in the next paragraph.
3. Where to put all the work stuff?
The ideal solution for a perfect home office, would be to have an extra room that can be used for work. Of course, this isn’t possible for everyone, so we recommend setting up at least a small corner that can be used as a workspace and doesn’t have to be constantly moved aside. If you prefer a little variety, you can also switch between different places and set up a small and light desk which can be moved around easily. Also, don’t underestimate a comfortable chair and good light – your eyes and back will thank you later!
4. Blue light filters to prevent tired eyes and headaches
Speaking of eyes – if you work a lot in front of a screen, you will notice that your eyes get irritated and tired after a long day in front of the laptop. Our eyes are exposed to daily radiation, the so-called high-energy blue light that many electronic devices such as laptops, smartphones or tablets transmit. To solve this problem, we have developed our glasses with proven blue light filter technology. Your eyes will be protected from this radiation through our special lenses that filter out blue light and UV rays. This process relieves the strain on our eyes and makes us feel fitter and more alert. Perfectly in line with this we are releasing six new pairs of glasses on May 22 to help to focus on your work and keep an eye on your home office routine. Maybe you’ll find your new fashion accessory with practical benefits in our assortment of glasses – after all, you don’t need to have poor eyesight to create a cool look with glasses.
Ultimately, what matters most is that you feel comfortable and can work well. Some people tick differently than others – try to find out for yourself what you need to create the ideal home office! Of course, we hope you can use our tips to make your time working from home a little more productive!
