China’s Ninestar Shares Four Tips for Working at Home in the Face of Coronavirus
At the beginning of March, many US-based tech companies, including Apple, Facebook and Microsoft, urged their employees to work remotely. Staying in the office with groups of colleagues or joining crowds of strangers while commuting is not an effective way of preventing the spread of disease.
Millions of office workers are having to adjust to a work-from-home lifestyle during the coronavirus crisis. Some are thinking it’s a good opportunity to experiment whether they could manage their life as a freelancer. It may actually be a dream job situation not having to squeeze in breakfast while fighting crazy traffic congestion before arriving at the office.
Admittedly, working from home comes with several negatives. But on the positive side, there is more time for sleep, no need for wearing makeup or struggling to find which clothes to wear. A flexible working day can help workers to achieve a better work-life balance, as well as meeting family responsibilities.
Here are some tips for your quick adaptation to this style:
- Have a specific space to work in:
A space just for work is crucial for your state of mind. Set a clear table for your laptop and notebook. It’s better if you can download an app or set an alarm clock to remind you to relax from time to time.
- Set specific working hours:
You need to clock in and clock out. Whatever kind of communications system you’re using to keep in touch with your team, turn it on when you start and turn it off when you stop. Remind yourself to work efficiently within the working hours. Working outside of these hours will just grind you down.
- Handle the conference calls:
Conference calls are inevitable, while the unstable Internet connection and disordered discussion would be painful problems. Make sure that everyone has accessible devices. And there should always be someone chairing the meeting. This person needs to determine the speaking order and organize people to speak in turn, as well as pick it up again when a discussion finishes.
- Prepare a household printer at home:
It’s always necessary to deal with printing, scanning and copying in business. When it’s not available at your hands like in the office, you’d better prepare a home printer. If you’re a parent, your children may be asked by their school to study at home and take online courses. Long-time staying in front of the screen definitely will do much harm to your children’s eyes. Therefore, a printed version of homework does relieve them from electronic pressure. Preparing some aftermarket (cheaper yet good quality) cartridges, such as G&G, for your printer is definitely a good choice since they can work with reliable performance and are quite cost-friendly.
G&G also has some other helpful devices available to use at home. You can use the label cassette to classify your documents or mark the many switches for the elder to easily recognize. A hand-held printer helps you quickly get the words from the screen to your intended paper or notebook. People who are keen on taking pictures and recording their lives may be fascinated with the pocket printer, which can let them immediately get a high-quality printout of photos.
In the face of wide-spread disease, the importance of maintaining good health can’t be stressed enough. Apart from keeping the normal pace of your work, always remember to lead a healthy life at home. An indoor exercise like yoga may much alleviate your stress.
This coronavirus disease will be defeated by modern medicine in the predictable future. But we are living through unprecedented times right now and we must do the right thing now to preserve the safety and good health of all in the home.
