Course Compilation to Help You Get Used to New Normal During Coronavirus Pandemic
COVID-19 has already become something more than just a term for a virus. It seems like this word stands for fears, frustration, and work challenges people face today. Right now probably only a few industries left that keep going at the same pace. Even less are maintaining processes to keep their workforce left untouched by pandemic hits. Lots of companies have to freeze hiring and go to a slowdown in operations waiting until the situation with the virus clears.
So, taking into account the current realities, a number of job seekers who search for new ways or approaches to work online rises. Lots of people have to move completely online to do their jobs or full-time freelancing projects. Yes, the coronavirus outbreak hit continues and we are sick and tired of waiting for things to go back to normal. Everybody just guesses and nobody knows for how long this nightmare is going to last.
For those of you ready to switch to working online, we got some tips on getting a grip on those things that are necessary to arrange and complete your remote work duties successfully.
Structure your day and get used to a new routine
First, try to get rid of oppressive thoughts and feelings of being isolated. Don’t let depression or negativity get into you. At this time you are not the only one who is going through similar types of things.
If you feel like you need advice from an experienced coach on helpful techniques to cope with anxiety or fears, try a nice online course on Grinfer “1 Week to a Calmer You” created by Katrina Zawawi, yoga instructor and certified college lecturer. Katrina has extensive experience not only in yoga but also in helping people to lose weight and manage their stress. Get some great advice on how to meditate, do yoga properly, manage stress, and much more. The course’s cost is only $19.99 but the outcome is priceless.
Scan your house or apartment for a good place where you can work with no distractions (it can be tricky but try to organize one for yourself). Start your day at the same time as you were getting up for work at the office. That way your body will stay within the same rhythms. Plus, you won’t have any trouble getting up early again once the time comes to go to the workplace again.
It sounds weird, but spending the whole day in your pajamas is clearly not the best idea. Do better than that and switch to something appropriate to set you up for a working mood.
Take breaks and have lunch during the same hours you took while at your regular job.
Outline daily tasks and stick to priorities. To be sure that you are meeting deadlines with ongoing projects. Keep your list of priorities handy to check with it.
Want to get more tips on staying motivated? Grinfer has an online course “Motivation” that you might find useful. Professor Paul J. Cline, CEO and psychology expert, created this course talking about cutting-edge motivating strategies and specific skills that you might never even thought of. After taking this course, you’ll benefit from Paul’s extensive experience and expertise that he shared in his video and audio content.
If you haven’t tried keeping a journal about your projects, concerns, or ideas, so go ahead and start one. That way you’ll keep track of your working patterns, your insights, or maybe some even useful ideas or thoughts that you’ll generate working remotely.
Take an online course that teaches how to develop and maintain a habit in journaling. The course is called “30 Day Journal Challenge – Establish a Habit of Daily Journaling”. Nina Vangerow, a course creator and artist, teacher, as well as online content manager will provide you with easy and effective style prompts.
Sitting at your desk all day? Then don’t forget about doing stretches and exercising. If you need to have a very effective exercising program created by a professional coach, look into a Grinfer’s online course “20 min HOME DAILY WORKOUT”
This course was created by Antonio Console, who is a Uefa B football coach and works as a certified personal trainer for many years now. This course has been highly rated by Grinfer’s community and one of the most popular. Only 20 min per day with this course! Practice between your daily tasks by doing warm-ups, workout, and stretching – great results guaranteed. You’ll be much stronger by the end of the lockdown not only physically but in your mindset too.
Having access to outdoors with some natural light and being safe is awesome. Get outside and enjoy sunlight but don’t forget about safety precautions.
Once you finish your work tasks for the day, get all stuff out of the way, so it won’t be lying around being irritating. Try not to do all your job activities in the same place. Don’t work and sleep in the same room. Otherwise, you can become tired or frustrated feeling stuck at one spot.
