How to Ward Off the Dreaded “Office Butt”

Heres the deal: Sitting too much might be jeopardizing your hard work to get the toned tush. Those long hours of sitting on your office chair are deactivating the nerves that activate gluteal muscles, which promotes atrophy or weakening of muscles. When this happens, the sleepy butt or office butt syndrome will make it hard for you to gain results for your backside.

What are the gluteal muscles?

When we think of our butt, we usually think about how good a firm derriere would look good in  swimwear or your jeans. But the muscles in our butt have way more functions than aesthetics. They are the powerhouse of strength in the body and support you through different ranges of motion with the right posture.

It is composed of three muscle groups: the gluteus maximus, the gluteus medius, and the gluteus minimus. Working those three muscles is a must because they can help avoid injuries in the lower back, hamstrings, and knees. The good thing is that you can awaken your glute muscles with specific exercises including amending how you go about your office day to ensure that your rear is working.

Experiencing Zoom fatigue? Here’s How To Avoid It

Have you ever been in three or more Zoom meetings this time of the day? Did you notice your colleagues’ new backdrop or their new hairstyle? What are the other things you’re noticing while in a virtual meeting? These things that you think are just normal that you are noticing at the first few online meetings and conferences you have at the onset of working from home are the very things that drains everyone out leading to Zoom fatigue.  

 

So how come this set up becomes so tiring? DigiDay said in a report that because of the situation all interactions are now happening online, more specifically in an app called Zoom. Some companies also tend to over-communicate with their employees by scheduling numerous virtual meetings in a day that could have just been an email or phone call. Sometimes you also can’t escape calls from friends and family. This creates the “feeling of tiredness, anxiousness or worry with yet another video call” that leads to exhaustion according to USA Today.

 

How to avoid Zoom fatigue?

 

Trying to avoid this virtual exhaustion can make your life easier and your mind happy. Here are some cheats to overcome it:

Top Work From Home Tip: Take Your Break

When businesses were forced to adjust to social distancing guidelines, many employees found themselves working from home. With the sudden spike in remote employees, companies had one thing in mind: productivity. And while most of us were used to demands of performing, nothing could have prepared most of us to the demands of working during a global pandemic.

 

Based on a survey conducted in 2019, working from home can lead to working longer hours for most employees, all so that they can prove that they can be productive despite being outside the office. Taking this into consideration plus the looming anxiety of ensuring business continuity during a global pandemic, you might be overexerting yourself.  And while keeping yourself productive is important, no good can come from a burnt out employee; you shouldn’t have to go through that and your company definitely won’t benefit from it.

 

While there are a multitude of sources explaining what you can do in a work from home environment, there’s one simple tip you can easily apply today that could make all the difference: Take Your Break. Although spending time away from your work might seem like the opposite of productivity, studies have found that taking intermittent breaks throughout the day actually keeps you more productive throughout the day. Researchers observed that following a productive break, employees were able to jump back into their tasks seamlessly; they didn’t stop to check their social media or get distracted by checking their emails. The key was when these employees felt fatigue from work, they’d take short breaks where they completely separated themselves from work. What this does is allow employees to refr

Tips and strategies to start a cardio exercise with jogging

Jogging is one of the best exercises that you can get into. It helps in weight loss, it develops muscles, and it's great for the heart. You really can't go wrong with jogging.

If you plan on adding jogging to your exercise routine, or if you just want to start jogging casually, there are a few questions you'll probably need to answer. The first is how you start, the second is how you pace yourself, and the third is what goals would you want to achieve with the exercise.

The great news is that we have the answers to the first two questions right here. The answer to the third one is entirely up to you.

How Do You Start?

You're probably thinking, oh jogging is easy. All I need are some running shoes, and I'm right on my way. Well, you're correct. You do need running shoes, but you'd be seriously wrong if you assume that that's all you need.

So what do you need? First off, yes, the running shoes. If you're a city dweller, you'll probably spend a lot of time pounding the pavement. To deal with that, you'll need to invest in good running shoes. These shoes will not only reduce discomfort, but they'll also stop you from getting seriously injured.

Your clothing is perhaps just as important as your running shoes. When dressing up, you should go for comfort. Look for comfortable clothes that can absorb sweat easily. In winter, you should try running with several layers of clothes. That way, when things start warming up, you'll be able to pull off a layer.  Also, you need to make sure that most of what you're wearing is lightweight. You definitely don't want anything, or anyone, weighing you down.

When running, it's important that you track your progress to see just how well you're doing. Done correctly, your progress can be a great motivator on those days when you're feeling down and unmotivated. That's why I always recommend using tech when running. There are so many apps like Garmin and F

Keep yourself Hydrated

Now this may seem like a tip that youve heard time and time again but, theres more to keeping hydrated then just ensuring that youre never thirsty.  Water has been proven to boost your immunity (a useful aspect that can protect you from COVID-19), keeping yourself hydrated has also proven to boost brain activity. And while boosted brain activity may mean more productivity, it also means that your mind has more room to heal and breathe.

Links between diabetes and depression and how to cope with them

Depression and diabetes are perhaps some of the most severe illnesses that start with the letter D. But now, some studies are saying that there may be something other than the letter D that links these two illnesses. These studies have demonstrated that having diabetes can lead to an increased risk of developing depression.

While we aren't yet sure of why this is so, some scientists claim that it could be because of the metabolic effects that diabetes has on the brain. It could also be because of the toll that managing diabetes can take on mental health.

The reverse could also be true, some studies argue. It could be that people with depression are disproportionately dealing with diabetes. That's why some doctors are recommending that people with a history of depression be tested for diabetes.

Of course, nothing is conclusive yet. One interesting theory being put forward is that alterations in brain chemistry caused by diabetes may be a factor that increases the likelihood of diabetes in patients. A good example of some of these changes is the damage that results from diabetic neuropathy.

However, it's also equally important to note that changes in the brain due to depression can lead to increased complications from diabetes. Basically, we know that there's a connection between both illnesses, but we don't know which causes which.

The Symptoms Of Depression For People With Diabetes

Managing diabetes can be a depressing experience for some. If you experience this and do not feel your mood lifting in a few weeks, then you should probably see a doctor. However, on the whole, the symptoms of depression for people with diabetes is mostly the same with others. Some of these symptoms include

  • Feeling insomnia or sleeping way too much
  • feeling lethargic
  • Inability to focus
  • Feeling of "morning sadness"
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Self-harm

Self-care might seem like an escape from productivity but it’s actually the key to it. A healthy body leads to a healthy mind and that goes both ways. When we say ‘indulge’, we really mean take as much as you can get and grow from it. It isn’t about excess; it’s about allowing yourself to love you a little better.

Reminder Systems at Standing Desks Makes You Even More Productive

Many people who owned height-adjustable desks are still unaware of the benefits they can still get from it. Aside from the fact they can sit and stand while working, some height-adjustable desks such as FlexiSpot’s Electric Height Adjustable Standing Desk: 3-Stage C-Leg Option E7 is equipped with a  sit-stand reminder system that alerts you when it’s time to stand and can be turned on or off anytime based on your workflow.

Comfort and forgetfulness were the top two reasons why some of us forget to alternate the sitting and standing work position. When you’re too invested or absorbed in a task, sometimes we forget to stand at all, and this makes the height-adjustable desks useless. 

In this article, we’ll discuss the types and why should you invest in a standing desk with a reminder system.

Ways to Make Your Work-From-Home Space More Ergonomic and Better for Your Back

If you're working from home, you're probably facing a lot of challenges. Balancing your work and home life while operating from the same building can be difficult, and dealing with home distractions during work hours can be a drag as well. The fact that you also have to manage your productivity can be quite draining too. However, one thing that most people who work from home have to regularly deal with is the fact that they feel discomfort every time they work.

Yes, that's true. Backaches because of uncomfortable workspaces are more common than you know. And what these backaches automatically mean is decreased productivity, because you cannot be at your best if your back hurts so much. If you feel this pain, these five tips will help make your workspace more ergonomic, and as such will reduce possible backaches.

Sitting Down For Long periods Will Hurt Your Back

There, that's it. I've said it. And there's no way to take it back now. But you should know that it's true. Sitting down for long periods bends your back into an unnatural C-shape.

So what's the solution? There has to be one, right? I obviously can't expect you to work slouched over your desk. Yes, there's a solution. Get a standing desk converter or just a regular height adjustable desk. That way you'll be able to stand and work with your desk at your upright height. I would recommend you get a desk like the Electric Height Adjustable Standing Desk of Flexispot. It has quick and smooth movement, so switching from sitting to standing positions is never difficult, it has an advanced all in one keyboard that allows you save your favorite sitting and standing heights, and it als

WFH Strategies for Operating Remotely During the Lockdown

For the last ten years or so, working from home has been my reality. Before making the switch to freelancing, and thus working from home, I used to work in a corporate setting. So I know how things look from both sides of the divide. I know the challenges of switching from a corporate setting to an informal one.

However, thankfully, I've had some experience dealing with these challenges. If you're just making the sudden switch to working from home because of the coronavirus pandemic, then I have to say, don't be scared. It may look impossible now, but there is a way to work from home and reach maximum productivity.

Of course, the fact that this switch is sudden and many firms haven't yet developed the needed structures and command chains to make it work may slow progress. Organizations and schools are trying to create a work from home system at a speed that is unhealthy, and the uncertainty of the quarantine makes it even worse.

The good news is that, even though the business structure may not be streamlined or optimized for working from home, you can optimize your working habits. That way, regardless of the way things turn out further up the command chain, you'll be ready and we'll be equipped to face the challenges ahead.

Act As If Nothing Has Changed

Working from home requires a conscious change in mentality. As you probably know, your work mood and home mood are two different things. To be successful in this journey, you have to make a conscious effort to not have your home mood at home. This can be very difficult because it requires you forgetting what your surrounding actually look like. However, with a few tricks, you can trick your mind into getting into that work mood.

One of the best ways to do this is by waking up at the time you usually do when preparing for work. Dress up (yes, in work clothes) and go somewhere, maybe a secluded part of the house, where you have your home office environm

Hacks for small space WFH

If you plan on working from home (something a lot of people are having to do because of the coronavirus pandemic), you're certain to encounter some problems. One of the biggest problems with changing from a traditional working environment to a home work environment is how to set up a home office.

When I made the decision to make a switch from a full-time working arrangement to become a freelancer, I had the same problem. I lived in a small apartment and after two weeks of working from my bed I knew that I couldn't continue that way. I was missing deadlines left and right, and I was getting almost nothing done.

That's when I decided that I would have to make most of what I had. Whether by hook or crook, I had to set up a work environment. Eventually, I was able to get it done. It took several weeks of tweaking and understanding what works and what doesn't. But within a month or so, I had the perfect environment that optimised productivity.

How did I do it? Let me show you.

You Can't Have A Great Office Right Away

If you're a perfectionist (like I am, sometimes), you probably would have the idea of perfect office space in your mind. And in fact, you may begin to painstakingly work to recreate that vision. Unfortunately, things rarely pan out the way you want. Importantly, if you have this idea of a perfect workspace, you may even put off doing any work till it's done. You may start inventing excuses like you haven't seen the right desk, the lighting isn't good enough etc.

However, you need to know that the main reason you're setting up an office space in the first place is to be productive. It's not because of aesthetics. With that said, you need to work with whatever you have and get working as soon as you can. One day, you may get all you need, but that day will most likely not be today.

Fun things to do with your kids during the lockdown

The coronavirus pandemic has necessitated a drastic change in our routine. If you're reading this, you're probably stuck at home. And if you have kids, they are probably stuck at home with you too. Shelter in place orders means that movement has been heavily restricted and that large gatherings have been almost totally banned (because apparently, you can't ban protests).

If you have kids at home, this may pose a unique problem. How does one deal with staying at home with children for extended periods? Younger children need time to play with their peers, and if they can't get that, parents become the next closest thing. That's why we'll be looking at a few fun activities that you can get involved in with your kids. Importantly, parents can use these activities to reconnect with their children.

While it may be easy to become a couch potato, it's important that parents try to use this period to spend valuable time with their kids. For all you know, you may never get this much free time ever again.

Play Outside

If you have a garden or a verandah, this can be the perfect escape for you and your kids. Staying inside all day can be a drag for your mental health and that of your children. So if you can, try to take them outside to have a breath of fresh air. You could try playing games like hide and seek, hopscotch and others to lift their spirits too.

Arts And Crafts Never Miss

If you have artsy children (younger children are almost always artsy), it may be a good idea to start several arts and craft projects. There are so many things you could make with regular home objects like toilet paper (however, if you have a toilet paper shortage in your city, you should probably hold off plans of using that). You could also make a lot of interesting things using paper, and these things can be great for decorating your children's room.

Top ergonomic tips for your spine health

Does your back hurt? Probably. If we are being honest, the human back is a travesty. If you sit down, it hurts. If you sleep, it hurts. If you do backbreaking work, it doesn't break, but it hurts. In fact, if you exist in any capacity whatsoever, your back probably hurts.

Why is that though? Why do you feel back pain? (If you don't already, you'll most likely feel it very soon). Well, the answer is fairly simple. You don't care enough for your spine. Good posture is something that a lot of people like to ignore, but the truth remains that if you don't maintain good posture, your back will most likely hurt. A lot.

That's why, today, we'll be looking at some tips to help you make the right choices when it comes to your spine health.

Keep Moving

If you're interested in protecting your spine throughout the day, you need to constantly be on the move. Now, this isn't to say that you should be restless, but you shouldn't be in one position for too long. A lot of people spend so much unnecessary time in a chair, and that hurts your spine. Do things instead. Go for a walk during lunch break. Walkabout for a while. Just stay active.

Exercises

It never hurts to stretch your back. Well, sometimes it does hurt, but it's a good kind. However, if you want your stretching to be more effective, you should consider doing it the right way. Exercises like the finger point, neck retraction and "big hug" stretch ensure that you're stretching your back the right way. With these exercises, you can even stretch your back discreetly.

Ensure That Your Workspace Is Ergonomic

One of the worst things you can do for your back is working in an area that is not ergonomic. It will contribute to undue stress on your spine, and that will almost definitely lead to painful backpain.

New York Gov. Cuomo Extends Authority for ‘PAUSE’ Order

New York is now leading with the most number of coronavirus cases than any country. Gov. Cuomo, on Saturday, announced that the legal authority of his NY ON PAUSE order will be extended through June 6 by executive order but not the initiative itself. Since the big apple attracts 60 million tourists a year and acts as the entry point to America for many travelers, this means the virus has already spread out even before a lockdown was implemented.

It was until March 16 when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the closure of public schools, bars, and restaurants. It was followed by an order of closure for all non-essential businesses, and residents to stay at home a week later on March 22 as per Governor Cuomo.

This means that until a cure is developed or the curve has flattened, working from home and staying at home is likely to last longer.

How to prepare for Work From Home extension

Since Cuomo still hasn’t decided how long it would extend the stay-at-home order, here are some ways on how to make your work at home set up more manageable.

1. Choose where to set up your workspace

In our recent article titled “(insert title of Top Trending Home Office Designs)”, it was mentioned that providing a unique and relaxing space to work can boost productivity and will help you get rid of unnecessary distractions to get things done on time. However, there are different types of work from home people who only get productive anywhere they prefer – depending on their mood.

Be a Cable Management Pro With FlexiSpot

The table is sleek;  monitors are up-to-date, and all other accessories are top-notch. All are perfectly arranged on top of the table just the way they should be. But how about the cords and cables underneath? Are they organized in a way that will make your workspace neat and safe?

Cable management is just as important as setting up all the office tools. Simply put, cable management is sorting out the cables and wires and keeping them out of sight with an accessory. A step forward would be establishing which cable belongs to a gadget since it can be confusing and time-consuming to figure out what cord goes where.

You can just imagine a workspace with all the cable clutter! It is an eyesore and a safety hazard since anyone can trip on the lines anytime. We just never know what happens so it is best to be proactive in this area. Some people put cable management on the bottom of the to-do list in organizing an office but putting this in the priority list is going to be beneficial at the end of the day.

 

The Advantages of Cable Management

  •  Let us give you more reasons why pouring in extra time and energy for cable management is important:Workplace safeness is of the essence. Putting the safety of everyone who comes into your office space is crucial. Especially if you work at home and your kids frequently visit your office, then this is an important matter that must be attended to immediately. Your kid might run or trip over the cords and that might cause havoc in your office. While playing, It is no laughing matter when someone falls into an accident because of disorderly cords and wires, especially when it could have been avoided in the first place with cable management practices. It pays to hide the wires in places with high foot traffic with the right product like

Trending: The Rise of Standing Desk in this Generation

More people are now joining the standing desk trend as an alternative to the usual sitting set-up during office hours. Even multinational technology company like Google offers standing desks as part of its employee-wellness program – same goes with AOL, Twitter, and Facebook.

Google has already provided its employees with electric adjustable standing desks in their New York office, to promote productivity and keep the energy level high in the office. Currently, together with Facebook, these wellness programs provided for their employees are their smart solutions to overcome the dangers of sitting for hours each day.

Ever since the alarming studies of ill-effect of sitting too long, the standing desk trend has soared, or better yet, beginning to be the newest solution to prevent further health risks.

The Ergonomic Difference Between Working at a Standing Desk vs Sitting

Intro:

“Sit up straight” – the usual phrase we heard and oftentimes taken for granted.

While we can sit comfortably on our chair while working, slouching, and sitting for a prolonged time isn’t healthy.

Several studies show that calories are burned faster when standing than sitting. However, there are still debates whether work can be done productively if a person works while standing or while sitting.

Other studies has linked obesity, cancer, and heart problems to sedentary lifestyles which put desk job workers at great risk of having these kind of health problems. Today, we’ll delve into a deeper discussion on the difference between working in a sitting desk and a standing desk, and how can you meet your ergonomic needs.

Effects of Prolonged Sitting

For most people who work in the bank, in publishing, or generally with people who have desk jobs, spending too long on a desk has been the norm. In today’s age, sitting at a desk for a long period is equivalent to smoking. Almost  70% of people spend six or more hours each day sitting down, according to a study from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys.

How Co-workers are Staying Connected While They Work From Home

In these unprecedented times, staying connected to people has become more important than ever. Remote working has exploded into the limelight of work culture almost overnight, and the switch hasn't been easy. Of course, switching to working from home can be made easier if you've got some ergonomic furniture (like a standing desk), a space to work from, and some peace and quiet, but it's far from being the most comfortable situation.

However, there's a bigger problem with remote working. And that's the loss of company culture, or better still, the lack of communication between colleagues. If you're facing such problems at work, these few tips can help you communicate easier with your colleagues and coworkers.

Use Your Commute Time

Yes, it's true, you now work at home, so you no longer have to spend time on the way to work. But that doesn't mean you should just roll out of your bed and start replying emails. No, use that time to do something with a coworker. It could be through texting, a phone call or video messaging. Those few minutes in the morning spent chatting will help you regain the conversations that are now lost because of remote working.

Make Video Compulsory

A lot of companies already do this, so it may sound like a drag. But you have to make video communication compulsory. This is especially important as there will be no in-person communication for a long time. When communicating through texts and phone calls, important verbal cues are missed. That's why it's important that official meetings are done through video conferencing.

Silent Video Group Chat

In an office setting, you're often working side by side with others, even when you do not c

Are Coronavirus and Obesity are Corelated?

A recent report says that obesity makes people at high risk of getting infected with Coronavirus, but why is that?

In the UK, a study based on nearly 17000 COVID-19 patients showed that those who were obese had a 33% greater risk of dying than those who were not obese. Moreover, data on 3,615 confirmed patients from the New York University medical college, published in Clinical Infectious Diseases , showed that among people under 60, hospitalization rates for obese patients more than doubled and the risk of requiring intensive care significantly increased. So does being overweight or obese really affect severity of diease?

Why are people with obesity at risk?

According to the CDC’s website, severe obesity increases the risk of a serious breathing problem called acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). This complication may cause difficulties for doctors to provide respiratory support for severely ill patients.

People with obesity are more prone to have reduced lung function, possible inflammation of the fatty tissue around internal organs, and might bring negative impacts on the heart and blood flow. Studies also show that fat cells could also restrict the availability of vital immune cells around the body to fight off the virus, and much more dangerous is infected with the coronavirus.

Work From Home Jobs You Can Get Right Now

If you're living in a state where social gatherings have generally been banned, then you should know that most people who have jobs in this period are either working from home or are essential workers. If you're neither, it can be difficult being out of a job.

However, you don't have to mop about and feel sad for yourself. There are some jobs that you can get into that would effectively allow you to work from home.  

Let’s take a look at some.

Freelancing

If you know someone working from home, they are probably into freelancing. Online freelancing communities have seen an explosion of revenue from freelancers, and millions of people are on the network making money through freelancing. Newsflash, Upwork workers collectively earn up to 1.4 trillion dollars a year.

If that isn't mind-blowing, I don't know what is. Importantly, getting a job as a freelancer is just as difficult as getting a regular job. If you've heard the myth that it's extremely difficult to get jobs as a freelancer, you should disregard it.

When going after a remote freelancing job, expect to receive just as many No's as you would expect when looking for a regular job. Of course, you will send application and pitches that will get rejected, but the important thing is to take them in your stride. To get a job, you have to learn to be creative in your applications. That way, you stand a better chance of getting the job.

A Blog

A lot of people have gotten super-rich from starting blogs. And while you may not expect to make a lot of money from your blog in the first few months, you can still eventually earn a steady and growing income from a blog that attracts a lot of traffic.

The great thing about blogging is that you can start from anywhere. All you need to have is great writing, a niche you're interested in, and an internet-connected device.

What Coronavirus Means for the Future of Work From Home

The coronavirus pandemic has essentially changed the way the world works. What remains to be seen is whether some of these changes will become permanent. However, we do know that the effects that the pandemic has had on remote work culture will last.

In this article, I'll be going over the different changes that the pandemic has had on working from home, and what these changes mean for the future.

First off, we must know that the pandemic has inspired an urgent and sudden change in the enterprises. 88% of corporations in the US now mandate that workers work from home, regardless of whether they have shown symptoms of coronavirus or not. While many corporations already had work from home systems, the pandemic has essentially become a tipping point. These systems had to scale everyone from the ground up. Of course, this sudden scaling up has come with its own challenges.

However, it has also come with new discoveries. For example, companies that are able to streamline work activities into a work from home system, and are still able to maintain a great level of productivity, will start to think of how working from home can save overhead costs. If these companies are able to successfully pull this off (which is likely because of advancement in communication technology), then the future will see a lot of remote workers.

These remote workers won't be domiciled in the field of tech as they always have been but will be spread across different sectors like banking, manufacturing and even healthcare.

Here are the five most important ways that the future of work is changing.

A Flexible Future

What we know is that if companies can maintain a high level of productivity, they will begin to see the merits of working from home. One of the biggest aspects of working from home is flexibility, and it's hard to see that companies won't retain at least that element when things return to normalcy. While companies

Try These Back Exercises at Home for Remote Work Relief

With the COVID-19 pandemic, the home office has become the only office for many workers. Some are leaning into the comforts of home and sitting down on the cozy couch or bed with a laptop for the day. Unfortunately, long hours in these positions can cause back pain.

The advantage, however, of working in comfortable clothes and a private space is that you can do back exercises at home to provide some relief. We’ll start below with tips for pain prevention and continue with a back pain exercise plan you can work into your new routine.

Advice for Work from Home Pain Prevention

Aim for proper posture. It may be tempting to sit on the sofa or even in bed, but selecting an ergonomic chair and desk is best. Sit with feet flat on the floor, legs at a 90-degree angle, and head, neck and spine aligned. Adjust the monitor so that your eyes align with the top – avoid angling head and neck downward, as this puts strain on the back.

Avoid being sedentary. Get up and move for a few minutes every hour. Even better, use a height adjustable desk to switch up your body position while you work. Proper posture for standing work is similar to that of seated work – just bring your legs into alignment with the head, neck and spine.

Exercises to Relieve Back Pain

The focus of many of these exercises if strengthening the core, so they’re beneficial for anyone. Even if you aim for correct posture, back pain can still creep in. Try these back exercises at home to heal, recover and strengthen.

-Partial Crunch

For partial crunches, lie on the floor with knees bent and feet flat. Use your hands to support the back of your neck, or cross your arms over your chest. Inhale, and

Effective Ways to Use Disinfectant During Coronavirus Pandemic

Health experts around the globe are advising people to maintain proper hygiene, social distancing, and looking for a coronavirus disinfectant to avoid getting infected. More people are also taking decisive action of disinfecting into a whole new level to make sure their loved ones are safe even at home.

Earlier this April, US President Donald Trump also proposed to inject disinfectant into the human body to treat COVID-19, which raised concerns from various health expert groups around the world. According to WHO (World Health Organization), even if the person is tested positive with the virus, spraying or injecting disinfectants may worsen the clinical condition of an individual.

While the possible cure for COVID-19 is ongoing, we’ve compiled a list of effective ways to use disinfectant and safety measures to protect you from possible dangers if incorrectly used.

Limit Usage of Disinfectants

Disinfectants are not advisable for daily use and one must know the difference between a cleaners/detergent and a disinfectant. Cleaners are products used to remove soil, dirt, dust, organic matter, and germs while the latter are chemical products that destroy or deactivate germs. Experts say that overuse of some disinfectant products can potentially create microbes that are resistant to particular disinfectants or that become “superbugs.” To know more about the types of disinfectant and the consideration before using it, click here.

How to Stop Procrastinating While Working from Home

With “stay-at-home” orders issued by government officials to contain the spread of COVID-19, many companies have instituted new remote work policies for non-essential employees. It’s a welcome change for some, bringing newfound freedom and comfort, but others have difficulty concentrating and staying on schedule without the regular office routine. If this sounds familiar, you might be wondering how to get yourself to stop procrastinating. Let’s dive in to some productivity-boosting tips to kick the procrastination habit.

Make a to-do list.

Create a complete list of tasks and determine priority for each. It helps to know, “What do I absolutely have to accomplish today?” Finding a way to guarantee you check these items off the list, at a minimum, can help provide a sense of control and reduce the overwhelmed feeling that often prompts procrastinating. Planning to make progress on vital tasks early on leaves time for new items that inevitably pop up during the day.

Plan your time. 

Bring back a routine by planning out a schedule for work and rest. If you know that at certain times you’re going to take a short break to do a few exercises and refill your water, you can structure your day to fit tasks into the amount of time you have between set breaks or meetings. It’s okay to allow for breaks if you have specific time set aside to work on a particular project. Reward yourself with a brief social media check to let your brain relax and shift gears between periods of focused work.

Do the hard part first.

Knowing that the day will only get easier, tackling the hardest part of a project at the beginning of the day can be a useful strategy. It can also help to break down a large, overwhelming project into the smallest tasks possible and then start to complete them in order. Making prog

Keeping up Communication in the Workplace During COVID-19

Remote work has suddenly become the new normal in light of the coronavirus pandemic. While working from home reduces the cost of commuting, it may increase the cost of communication. Unlike face-to-face communication in the office, remote communication comes with some limitations and barriers. To ensure continued efficiency and productivity, telecommuters need to master some effective communication skills. Read on to find strategies for keeping up communication in the workplace now that the workplace is at home.

Synchronous online time.

One advantage of remote work is that it can allow for a bit more flexibility. For many office workers, it doesn’t necessarily matter at which hours the work is completed – just that it is. Maybe you catch up on some work at night after the kids are in bed, but you know that you can’t necessarily expect a response to an email at 9:00pm. While allowing flexibility is helpful, especially in these unprecedented times, it may be beneficial to have a period during the day where everyone on the team is expected to be online – say, from 10:00am to 2:00pm. The early birds and the night owls will both be available for any meetings scheduled during this time, and team members will know they can count on reasonably timely responses from coworkers within this window.

Reading email and other communications in a timely manner.

On the subject of timely responses, it’s all the more crucial while working remotely to keep a close eye on incoming emails, chat messages and other forms of communication. Remote workers don’t have the ability to just pop into a coworker’s office to ask a quick question, and managers don’t have the advantage of seeing employees physically at their desks.

Being responsive helps workflow and builds tru

How to Resolve Work from Home Network Security Issues

Over the past several months, many employees with office jobs have started to work remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This comes with changes and challenges, one of which is the lack of easy access to an IT team who can solve network issues and ensure home network security. The problem is compounded by reports that “hackers and scammers have been using the coronavirus pandemic plaguing the globe to carry out cyberattacks.” For those workers who have access to sensitive information and confidential data from their companies, home network security is all the more vital. Avoid becoming a victim of opportunistic hackers by using these tips to set up a secure network for your home office.

1. Install a network firewall.

Fortunately, this tip should be easy to implement for most, as wireless routers have a built in firewall for security. It’s not always turned on by default, so ensure yours is switched on. This, combined with the built-in firewalls provided by Windows (as well as your security software), is enough for most set-ups to offer thorough data protection.

2. Back up your data.

There are several options available to you for secure data back-up:

-Back up to an external drive such as a USB hard drive using Windows’ File History or Backup feature, or Apple’s Time Machine feature. This method has the advantage of being inexpensive, but it doesn’t eliminate vulnerability to physical danger such as fire or robbery.

-Back up data over the internet using a subscription service. Often this costs

Picking the Right Computer Desk for Small Apartments

Remote work was already a growing trend, but the coronavirus pandemic has now made it the norm. For some office workers the change will be temporary; for others, it may become permanent. Either way, a comfortable home office workstation is vital, but it can be tricky to find the space in which to set it up. In particular, workers may have trouble finding the right computer desk for small apartments. Fortunately, there are some creative options. Here are several small apartment desk ideas that will help to maximize space utilization.

Floating Desk 

As you might have guessed from the name, a floating desk is not a piece of freestanding furniture taking up floor space but a desk surface attached to a wall. It can be as small and simple as a 1’ x 2’ plank of wood attached to the wall with brackets. Borrow a chair from the kitchen table and you have a simple, space-saving, cost-effective home workstation.

Some floating desks fold away, sitting perpendicular to the wall when in use and folding up parallel to the wall when stored, including supportive legs that also fold in neatly for storage. Other floating desks can be more furniture-like – for example, on a ladder shelf that’s anchored to a wall, small high shelves function as decorative storage and a deeper table-height shelf can be used as a desk surface.

If you need storage for paper files or other items, look for a floating desk that has cabinets or cubbies mounted underneath on one or both sides. Additional features you can find on floating desks include pull-out keyboard and mouse trays and hidden cable management.

Alcove Workstation 

Think about the layout of your apartment. Do you have a small space that doesn’t lend itself naturally to another use? You might be able to turn it into a cozy office by creating an alcove workstation. Perhaps there’s a narrow extension off the living room that leads to a window view or some open space underneath a

How to manage anxiety and protect your mental health during self-isolation

These are very anxious times.

Ever since the beginning of the onslaught of the novel coronavirus pandemic, a lot of things about our normal lives have been called into question. Many of us are no longer free to go out, and we've had to self-isolate inside for a few weeks. Many of us will remain indoors for a long time to come.

But the freedom to leave home isn't the only thing that the pandemic has negatively affected. Travel plans, parties, work, and so many other things have been touched by the sickly hand of coronavirus. The fact that most of our lives seem to have changed under a relatively short while can be a good enough reason to panic, and to have unchecked anxiety.

In order to avoid that, a few pointers have been put together to stop the giant spiral into the abyss of anxiety.

Try To Follow Your Normal Routine

One of the most telling effects of coronavirus (asides the death and illnesses) is the change to routine. If you don't have somewhere to be by 9, you no longer have to wake up by 6. If you don't have to face traffic, you may see no reason to make coffee. If you don't have to go to the gym, a light pre-workout session may seem meaningless to you.

But if you want to keep a semblance of sanity, you cannot let things fall apart. You have to try, as much as you can, to stay true to your pre-quarantine routine. Wake up at the time you used to, eat at the time you used to, and rest at the time you used to. Sticking to your regular routine will keep you active and focused. It will prevent you from spiralling and will make it easier for you to continue with life after the quarantine.

You're Not Stuck Inside

Thinking that you're stuck inside can have adverse effects on your mind. Instead, you should take the time "off" as a period to learn and discover yourself. How do you do this? Easy, learn to do something productive each day. That will give you a sense of hope

Home Office Ideas That Are Surprisingly Stylish

Styling your home office is not the easiest thing in the world. A lack of space can be a handicap, and this is why many people just leave it at a desk and a chair. But it doesn't have to be so bland. There are ways that you can set your office up to be stylish without spending a lot and using up a lot of space.

You don't have to follow the designs here explicitly. All you have to do is be inspired and open your minds to new ways of styling your home office.

A Nook

You don't need a lot of space to have a good home office. In fact, sometimes, all you need is a nook in a quiet place. You can achieve all the elegance you want in that small place. This nook-style works well with a corner in a room, and a shelf with an extended desk as the lowest level. It's also important that your style of chair is lush and comforting.

The upper levels of the shelf can be used for storage space, and that will help keep your desk uncluttered.

A Workstation

Some people simply make use of an ordinary wooden desk and a chair for their offices. That may be useful, but it is certainly not stylish. What's stylish is a workstation, and a great example is the MonitorStand Workstation from Flexispot. The workstation comes with designer accessories, USB charging spot, and it is very easy to install. That's not all. The UV sterilization of the workstation will sterilize your phones, stationery, face masks, and other items. This will help to keep them safe and sterile at all times.

Lightning

The kind of light you use in your home office can transform the space from a drab looking cubicle to open space for productive work. That's you need to pay attention to it as much as you can. Adequate lighting not

How To Boost Your Immune System Even If You are Over 65

As you well knew the coronavirus pandemic has put the world at a standstill. It has been growing in intensity since at least mid-march and is projected to soon reach a fever pitch. The virus affects people of all age groups, but it's hardly a secret that the aged are the worst hit. Most of the people getting hospitalized as a result of the virus are old people, and when it comes to death rates the are the worst hit.

Why is this happening? Well, the novel coronavirus can easily be fought off by a strong and healthy immune system (some people never even get mild symptoms). But a weak immune system would find it difficult to defeat the virus. And, unfortunately, the immune system of older people, especially those above 65, are already weakened by age.

But all hope isn't lost. If you're in this category, there are still a few things you can do boost your immune system.

Eat Healthily

This is perhaps the most important tip. The food that you eat will contribute a lot to your body, and that includes your immune system. Healthy food have vitamins and minerals that will help boost your bodies defences, and the more healthy food you eat, the better your immune system becomes.

Some of these foods include vegetables and fruits. In fact, you should pay extra attention to  fruits rich in vitamin C like oranges. Asides that, you should try, as much as possible, to reduce your intake of sugar, fat and processed food.

Don't Rush, Don't Stress

If you're too stressed, your immune system can be negatively affected. When you're stressed, your body will release a hormone called cortisol. This hormone is what helps you deal with stressful situations. The hormone also limits nonessential bodily functions.

Generally, short term stress has no adverse effects on the body. But long term stress can arm the body terribly. They lower the response of the immune system and may even make you prone to i

Having trouble with managing remote teams? These few tips can help you out

Nothing in our lifetime has disrupted social life like the Coronavirus pandemic. All over the world, the virus continues to take its toll, and companies, teams and firms all over the world have had to adjust their modus operandi.

That's right. If your work can be done from home, you've probably been asked to start working from the confines of your house. This can be an especially difficult situation, particularly if you're the leader of a team that has to work together. Managers all over the world have been forced into situat ions where they would have to lead teams remotely. This is something that has never happened on such a large scale, and unsurprisingly, managers have found it difficult to adjust.

It's hard enough being a team member receiving virtual instructions. Imagine being the manager giving those instructions and having to coordinate the efforts of others too as well.

But thankfully, there are a few tips that can help you coordinate your team better.

Lower Your Expectations

First off, accept that you will not be as productive as you would have been in the regular office setting. Accept that your team members/workers won't be as productive as well. That will most certainly help you deal with whatever is coming.

This means that you will have to become more flexible, relax some rules on deadlines, and you may have to occasionally pick quality over quantity (that is quality of work over volume).

Stay In Touch

Well, this looks like the put one foot in front of the other rule, but it's important. Research says that contacting people frequently builds communication and makes it easier to sustain engagement.

This means that you must always make sure that your employees are checking in. Don't allow 12 hours go by without getting feedback about a task. You may even set a model of checking in. Maybe every 5 hours, workers are mandated to touch base. This will

8 Immunity Boosting Juices To Drink When You are sick

Today, it's more important than ever to boost your immune system. The coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world has brought one thing to the forefront of our collective consciousness. And what's that thing? Our immune system protects us from a lot of infections, and if it isn't strong enough we may fall sick.

The immune system works round the clock, and it is often deciding what cells to attack and what cells to leave alone. This means that for it to be work at the highest level, it needs all the help it can possibly get.

These 8 juices we are going to be looking at are packed with enough nutrients to give a much-needed boost to your system. Drinking them each morning will keep you rejuvenated and allow your body's natural defences to be at their best.

Orange and Grapefruit

A blend of Orange and Grapefruit contains potent doses of vitamins A, B-6, and C. Vitamin C contains antioxidant properties that will protect your cells from the damaging effect of harmful substances. What's more, a lack of vitamin C in the body may lead to delayed wound healing, impaired immune response, and your body may not be able to fight infections properly.

Kale, Celery And Tomato

Not everyone likes Kale, but it does wonders to the body. This blend of Kale, Celery and Tomato provides your body with magnesium, potassium, iron, fatty acids, and Vitamins A and C. This will not only boost your immune system, but it'll also awaken your senses.

Apple, Carrot and Orange

This is the second juice on this list that includes oranges. That's because Oranges are the best source for vitamin C, and vitamin C is amazing for your immune system. Carrots, Apples and Oranges make a blockbuster combination of fruits that will no doubt help your body fight (and win) infections. This blend contains vitamin C, B-6, C, Potassium and Folic acid.
