7 Simple Activities for a Better Work Day During Quarantine

As we are all aware of, the enhanced community quarantine due to COVID-19 just got extended (for the second time), in NCR. This means, 15 more days of working from home. 

But, now is not the time to fret or give COVID-19 more power to ruin our lives. Let’s strive to maintain structure, stay safe, try new things and be as productive as we can.
This post is for everyone who wants to have a better work day and improve their productivity at work. So today, I decided to share 7 simple activities for a better work day during quarantine. 

1. Have a Morning Routine Before Going to Work

It all starts with a perfect morning routine. I personally love the idea of having routines to live by. It gives you something to look forward to. Your morning routine can include a skincare routine, productivity routine, workout routine and even a makeup routine just as long as it gives you a nice primer before you start working.

2.   Don’t Check Your Email First Thing in the Morning

Checking your emails first thing in the morning is actually proven to decrease your productivity. Spending all your time in the morning reading email is a major waste of time. Unless it is urgent, avoid opening your inbox as soon as you get in your desk area.

3. Make a To Do List

A perfect to do list will give you a better outline on what needs to get done on a daily basis. Try to keep at least 7-10 important tasks you need to accomplish and have this list as your basis during the day. Reward yourself at times when you have done a great job also you can track your progress.

4. Have a Personal Relaxing Moment

One thing I look forward to in my workday is my one cup of coffee tradition by 3pm. I feel so pumped up just sipping my coffee while listening to my favorite playlists on Spotify while at work. I also suggest maximizing your lunch break by taking a power nap, reading a book or watching a movie that will get you inspired.

5. Learn Something New Everyday

Make sure to make everyday an opportunity to learn something new. With the new found time we have this enhanced community quarantine period to try to make time for self development. Read books, listen to podcasts, find mentors and reflect at the end of the day that can boost your confidence.
I always bring a book with me wherever I go. I read mostly in the morning as I commute to work since I ride an FX going to Ayala. I also try to check and to read other blogs that interest me via Flip. 

6. Go for a Quick Exercise

A quick exercise in the morning can help boost your energy all day long. You can search for the perfect exercise via Google that will suit your needs. I actually have a lot of home workout routines saved in Instagram. If ever I run out of time in the morning I see to it that I still do some head to toe stretch instead. 

7. Read the Bible and Do Some Morning Devotional

We all know how the busy schedule can rob our time with God. But it should be the opposite. The more your life gets busy, the more you need to spend time with God for He is the only provider of the blessings you receive. Read your bible and do some morning devotional that will surely align your day right. 
I hope these seven activities inspire you to set your workday right. Remember to work hard, save and invest so that someday all your hard work will pay off.
Good luck!
