Work From Home (WFH) Essentials & Tips

With the nations capital in and out of lockdown & restrictions, and many new small businesses being born out of Covid19, we asked our social media followers for their WFH tips to help you at home.

See the answers below for some reminders or inspiration, and keep scrolling to see our favourite LIABOX WFH essential products, that make for great gifts!

  • Designate a specific ‘work area’
  • Set reminders to take regular breaks - whether it’s walking, stretching, getting up to make a drink or meal, running errands
    "It's ok to have breaks. Don't feel like you need to always be working or productive. Stay aware of your mental health too. It's been a tough time."
  • Stay hydrated
    "Drink lots of fluids, then it forces you to get up, stretch & use the toilet" 
  • Get dressed, showered, make up (set a routine)
    "Do your make up! Look good, feel good, ready to go"
    "Always make your bed as soon as you wake up. You'll feel good because you've completed the first task of the day" 
  • Limit distractions
    "Set your phone aside and limit certain times for social media browsing. We can all easily get distracted scrolling on there"
  • Communicate with your work circle
    "Stay in touch with your colleagues" 
  • Plan your day. Set a daily routine, schedule, and small goals
    "Take it day by day"
  • Put on some background music to set the tone
    "I love working with relaxing jazz music on because I feel like I'm in a cafe" 
    "Discover random cafe playlists. I work better with music I don't know the words too, otherwise I get distracted"
