Here at Moxi Events we know a thing or two about working from home and since that is what a lot of us are now doing, we thought we could share a few of our team members tips and tricks! We also linked a few of our favorite ‘WFH’ products because it wouldn’t be Moxi if there wasn’t some type of shopping involved, right?
•Rule Number #1 – ALWAYS change out of your pajamas and get ready for the day! Now, we are not saying that you have to put on a full face of makeup, but we find it super helpful to wash our face, brush our teeth, and change out of what we slept in… UNLESS we finished more than 1 bottle of wine the night before.. that is the ONLY exception to this rule!! 😉 Check out some of our favorite loungewear below…
•Created a space that is designated just for YOU and just for working! We find that having an office or work space just for ourselves is super helpful. Make sure this space is clean and organized and stocked with all of the work essentials… pens, pencils, highlighters, stapler, sticky notes, etc…
•We think that comfortable shoes are important for any job, but lucky for us, that means slippers. Find a good pair to wear throughout the day to keep your feet warm! A few of our favorites are…
•Create a TO-DO list. There is nothing more satisfying than checking things off a list!
•Make sure to have a comfortable chair for your work space. Also – sit up straight!! Posture is key.
•Invest in a good pair of noise cancelling headphones.. yes, say it again, noise cancelling headphones! Whether you have kids or dogs at home creating a distraction or really just need to hunker down and focus, these will do the trick. These have been a total game changer for our team. Our favorite are the Apple AirPods.
•Use speaker phone. This might sound silly to some – but trust us – it is exhausting holding a phone to your ear all day and your skin will thank you later 😉
•EAT. Food = Fuel. Do not forget to eat breakfast and lunch! Sometimes it is easy to get so lost in your laptop that when you lookup it is 3pm and you haven’t had a proper meal for the day.
•Pre-prepared snacks are a must as well. Grazing has becoming a hobby of all of us here at Moxi at one time or another and yes, we may have all done a conference call inside our pantries before. To help with this we find it super helpful to have healthy, filling prepared snacks ready at all times. Some of our favorites are…
Mixed Nuts or Trail Mix
Veggies with Hummus
Fruit with Nut Butter
•Open your windows. Nothing like some natural light to get the brain juices flowing!
•Find a good playlist or podcast.
•Take breaks! Yes, it is okay to take breaks and we all need it. Do some jumping jacks, put in a load of laundry, walk your dog around the block.. just get your body moving and step away from your work space for a bit. This helps bring back focus and motivation!
•Lastly – make sure to check-in with your coworkers, especially now more than ever!! Send a text, funny email, or do a virtual happy hour, but don’t forget about your team.
We hope you are all staying safe and sane during this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone right now! Make sure to tune into our instagram for some comedic relief, more blog posts, and inspirational quotes. We’re all in this together!
