Those first few weeks were glorious, endless cups of tea and working in yoga leggings and fluffy slippers. Fast forward sixteen or so weeks and we are still here, locked down, working, living and existing in one singular space.
Our Creative Director, Cara, founded TLPS from home way back when we started out, so she knows a thing or two about working from home. Have a nosey at her office and read our tips below…
While it is tempting to WFB (work from bed) we can confirm that this is neither productive nor good for your posture. Find a space you can call your office, whether it is a designated room or even a regular spot at the dining table. Having a space to create that you associate with work will transform your productivity, we promise.
Getting dressed as if you were physically going to work really makes a difference. You can keep the messy bun, but throw on what you’d usually wear for work and ditch the dressing gown, zoom call or no zoom call!
Surrounded by umpteen coffee cups and the remains of a packet of mini cheddars will not produce the best results. Keep your ‘desk’ in check and your work will flow much easier, plus you won’t have to shove it all out of shot when your boss calls, winner!
We are suckers for a gorgeous notepad and our fave pens so can you blame us for including them? Having the right tools for the job is essential and we are absolutely counting stationery within that. From journals for your best ideas to highlighters that give you a kick up the bum when you need it, having them to hand really gets us in the work-y kind of mood.
The most important has been saved until the very end. We are all too guilty of creeping on our emails at 7PM to see if anything has been missed, or just finishing that last piece of work that stretches out until 10 o clock at night. Learn to switch off and close that laptop so you can enjoy the things you normally would after work. Pass us that glass of wine!
