Working from home tips: Jamie-Lee Kay, The Other Straw
Mindset is everything, in whatever we choose to do. Jamie-Lee Kay’s working from home tips are all about getting your head in the right place…
1. Get rid of negative emotions
If you are suffering from stress or anxiety, it’s a great time to start practicing yoga and/or meditation to help change your relationship with negative thought patterns. These practices can help shift your perspective to lean towards positive thoughts and emotions, and as a result, lead to greater productivity and motivation. There are many great apps available to help get you started. My personal favorite for meditation is Headspace and for yoga, Glo.
2. Challenge yourself
If you have some spare time up your sleeve, then consider up-skilling. From SEO, to social media marketing there are so many (free) courses available online to help challenge your capabilities and skills.
3. Limit your time on social media and reading the news
Hearing so much dark news can be really exhausting, and take a toll on your motivation and productivity. If you can, allocate daily, set times for scrolling social media and reading, watching the news.
