Ways To Stay Productive When You're Stuck At Home
I know it's not just me but even though things have started opening up again, it still feels like there's nothing to really do. We're all working from home (for the most part) and it seems like things may start closing again. For many of us, it can be hard to feel motivated and inspired right now. So I've compiled a list of things for you to do when you need a break, laugh or just do something different outside of the routine you may have had for the last eight or so months. If you try any of these, let us know! Take a picture and tag us on Instagram @Woodies.
1. Do an at-home workout
This is great if you're feeling lazy or unmotivated. It may seem unappealing but once you start, it can really get those wheels of motivation turning!
2. Go on a bike ride
Grab your Woodies and your bike and go for a quick (or long) bike ride. Play some music and clear your head- just get some fresh air.
3. Go through your closet
Now is a great time to go through your closet and maybe giveaway your clothes to someone in need or sell them for some extra cash.
4. Find a new hobby
I have been freediving for about a year but I finally took the leap and invested in my free diving certifications. I've also dove head first into my photography businesses. Now is an amazing time to take up a new hobby and learn as much as you can.
5. Take a free online class
Guys! This is super cool but universities like Harvard are offering free online courses. I took one at the beginning of the lock downs based on Shark Ecology and learned a lot. You can also take some cool courses on platforms like Udemy.
6. Bake something from scratch
I am not a big sweets person but I love baking for other people. I made this massive snowflake bread and have been finding time to try new things. This could probably go under trying a new hobby!
7. Go to the beach
If beaches are open near you, go to the beach. Grab a book, some ear phones, a towel (and your Woodies), and hit the beach. It's a great way to relax, unwind and clear your mind. Whenever I am feeling unmotivated or stretched thin on creativity, I try to go to the beach and give my mind some time to kind of be "empty".
8. Start a side hustle
2020 is the year to start making money online! Start a blog, tutor online, kick start your YouTube career, freelance- these are just a few ideas.
9. Plan out your week
Making plans sincerely helps to add some structure to the work from home life. It also keeps you accountable for any promises you've made yourself!
Before we send you off with these ideas, we also want to remind you to be patient with yourself. These times are not like anything we've really experienced and we're all learning along the way. Check out our 5 Healthy Habits For Working From Home!
