We are all in the same boat here. Most of us are scrambling to make adjustments due to the quarantine. I, along with many others, are suddenly working from home. I work in a job where I work with students in a school setting and am in constant contact with the community my agency serves. I’ve never worked from home… and my job is definitely not a work from home job… but we have to make it work.I decided my first step in making an effective adjustment was to create a work space. I don’t have a desk… and have a hard time concentrating in bed or at the kitchen table, so I made my own makeshift desk out of my nightstand.I grabbed a spare chair from my garage to use as a desk chair. I cleared everything from the top of my nightstand to have as much space as possible. I decided to keep my bluetooth speaker on top (for listening to podcasts), my work phone, work laptop, planner and a couple of pens. A makeshift desk isn’t ideal… but having a designated work space has helped me get things done and avoid the temptation of grabbing a snack from the kitchen or lying down in bed.
This is the first post in a series about how I’m working from home. I plan on doing a post on my work from home outfits and a post on productivity!
Thanks for reading! Stay safe
