It is easy to think that work life balance is less essential whilst you work from home; but maintaining work life balance is even more important than ever before whilst working from home.
It is now the 4th week since I have been working mainly from home and most of us are doing the same in view of the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
In the past 3 weeks, I have spent more time indoors and at home than I have in the past 3 years!
For now, there’s no more daily commuting, and I had to adjust my morning routine, whilst still maintaining the important aspects of my morning routine.
I miss my daily walks from the house to the train station and from the train station to the office. I find it challenging to now meet up my 10,000 steps per day.
Now I keep up with daily workouts – metabolic renewal workouts; and regular movements around the house; and of course my daily exercise allowance – walking to my local Morrison’s store for essentials.
Today after the on-line Sunday Service via ZOOM, I sat in the garden for about 1 hour to read. I’m currently reading the book – The Source by Tara Swart, which I do recommend if you are considering your next book.
The weather was nice and I enjoyed every moment of that experience – both the reading and the weather.
I decided to check Dr Tara Swart’s twitter page and I found a very good article on working from home tips which was only published yesterday 04 April 2020 via metro.co.uk.
I’m so glad I stumbled across this article.
The article is so good and relevant to what’s happening now and in line with what I was about to write, so I am sharing it below in case you have not come across it yet.
It includes tips from experts such as Deborah Bulcock, Dr Tara Swart, and Adam Zargar.
It’s really worth reading. Please go ahead and click the article title link.
“Now more than ever, it’s important to separate your work self from your private self, and to look after your mental health”

Working from home can work for you.
