Maximizing Your Work From Home Routine
Many of us have had to adapt to working from home during the pandemic, and the foreseeable future. Between work, parenting, cooking, and cleaning it is easy to become overwhelmed and find balance. Here are our tips to maximize your work-from-home routine.
1. Set Boundaries
Set clear boundaries for your work space and work time. Have a dedicated area that you can remove yourself from so you don't feel 'on' 24/7. Figure out the most effective time that you have to get the most work done, even if it is for a shorter period than your typical workday in the office. Spreading your work out all day can make you feel like it never ends.
We have found it helpful to use a pressure cooker or instant pot for easy meals. Throw your ingredients into the pot in the morning before you even start your day. This way it can be ready in time for lunch, and you can always use it for dinner. By the time the end of the day comes around, it is helpful to know dinner is already done, and the kitchen is already cleaned.
If you have the flexibility with your hours, try to do your work the same time your kid (s) are on zoom. It make take some time to get settled in this routine, but trust us, it will happen!
4. Self Care
Whatever you do, prioritize yourself first. We know, easier said than done. Whether this includes your wellness routine or meditation, make sure to do it first. Personally, our CBD regimen is key. When we wake up, we take our GO-TO CBD Softgel or CBD Oil. Next, we fill up our Welly bottle with water and our CBD Energy Drink Mix to give us a boost to get the day going. After being on our computer for a couple hours, we rub some Lavender Eucalyptus CBD Salve on our aching shoulders. When it is time to brush our teeth and get ready for bed, we take our Just Rest CBD Softgel with Melatonin for restful sleep.
