Getting the most out of your home during the lockdown

As the Coronavirus pandemic continues, many of us around the world is still adjusting to a life spent largely indoors, and trying to complete work as best we can with what we have within our own four walls. Want to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your home during a lockdown? We’ve compiled a couple of tips that might help.

Building the perfect home office

First things first, if you’re lucky enough to be in the position where you can continue and complete your job from home, you need to make sure that you’ve got a competent desk space setup. Of course, at this point, most of us have already designated a room or space that we’re happy with, but if you’re still making do on your kitchen table, or sitting on a stool at your breakfast bar, it might be time for a long-term change. Here are a few major factors to consider:

  • Internet – Sometimes your internet speeds can be out of your control, but in order to make sure that your company Zoom meetings go to plan, and that you can stay in contact with those that matter to you the most when it matters most, you need to do everything you can to try and secure that stable connection. Get as close as you possibly can to your Wi-Fi hub/router if you’re connecting wirelessly, and plug straight in if you can to ensure a consistent level. If you live in a home with particularly thick walls and you can feel your connection getting patchy in some rooms, then you may want to invest in some booster to spread out throughout the home.
  • Chair/Desk – We spend an immense amount of time sat down in front of our computers to work, and while making do on the couch or propped up on an ironing board might work as a temporary solution, it can affect things like your posture and productivity in the long term. Get yourself a decent chair and a desk to sit at, or maybe request one or take one from your work office if they’ll allow it.

Outdoor space

Being stuck in your home day in, day out can feel isolating even at the best of times, and you need to make sure that you’re getting as much fresh air and sunlight as possible, particularly as we enter the summer months and those beautiful blue skies begin to become all the more prominent. If you’re lucky enough to have a garden, perhaps take some time to work on getting it prim and proper so that you’re happy to relax and unwind in it, and see if you can complete work or do some workouts there too, passing the time and getting your outdoor fix in the process.

If you live in a city apartment, on the other hand, or don’t have a garden space, perhaps spend your morning coffee break on your balcony, or even on the roof of your apartment building, if it’s possible (and safe!) and the weather’s nice. Some modern apartment buildings, such as some of the ones offered by RWinvest (like Sky and Crosby Gardens), feature communal rooftop garden areas, perfect for overlooking the surrounding city when you need a break from the same four walls. 

Overall, I suppose the point we’re trying to make here is that whatever outdoor space you might have in or around your home, you should make the most of it when you can!
