The Keys to Productive Remote Working


This is a difficult moment for the world and our hearts go out to all those affected by the outbreak of COVID-19.  This or some variation of it, has been being released from most major companies, including Journeys, Aldo and more.

The messages and press released acknowledge that during this crisis, the safety of the global community is and should be top priority.

In addition to taking precautionary measures to each company doing their part in reducing the spread of COVID-19 they inform the public of their compliance in following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

By implementing an increased cleaning and sanitizing procedures as well as temporarily closing most if not all of their locations. As a last precautionary action companies have recommended all employees who can work from home, to do so.

Amid such a worldwide event, rivaled only by the MCU’s “Blip”, motivation to do anything but go on a exploration for toilet paper is properly at an all-time low.

So here are some keys to ensuring a productive working culture while you work from home.

Don’t work in your bed

I know it is tempting but a study done by the American College of Healthcare Sciences states your bed may be the worst place to try to get work done. It is proven to decrease productivity and limits focus. Trying to get your work done in your bed, is the equivalence to trying to drive your car in park. Your wheels are turning but not much more is happening. So get out of bed.

Set up

Select your work station for the day, not your bedroom, and gather all the essentials, as if you leaving for vacation with a long flight. That way there is nothing to distract you. If there are clothes on the floor, or dishes in the bedroom, straighten up so you can feel orderly and not out of place. Grab your water, snacks and tackle your first task.


I am notoriously infamous for making plans to make plans. So a “To-do list” will come in handy.

Know exactly what you need to do, and in the order it needs to be done. Plan a lunch for yourself and breaks.

Wash your hands.

I mean all things considered make this a regular habit.

These are just a few action to take to ensure a productive remote working experience.
