Many people during the pandemic have been dealing with the difficult transition of having to work from home this past year. With more lockdowns on the way, it’s normal to have a hard time focusing, feeling stressed and unmotivated during these uncertain times. Lack of social interaction, distracting environment, a repetitive routine, and burnout are all obstacles of WFH. Thankfully there’s a few simple solutions to help out with these issues.
Sleeping Well and Waking Well
The key to a productive work day is a good sleep the night before. It’s helpful to have no electronics set a specific schedule for when you will go to bed and when you will wake up in the morning, to get your body in a cyclical routine resulting in deeper, more restful sleep. Sometimes it can be hard to fall asleep for a variety of reasons, especially after a stressful work day. LUVV Air CALM has a variety of calming ingredients, topped off with a dose of melatonin that can be very beneficial to establishing a bedtime and lulling the body and mind into a pleasant restful state at night.
Just as important as getting to bed is getting the day off to a good start. Just like before bed, it is best to not go on your phone or other devices first thing in the morning, as tempting as it may be. Many successful people typically get up early and start off the day with some meditation or yoga. This is the perfect time to reflect on goals for the day, what you are working towards and who you are doing it for, practicing mindfulness. After this, it could be helpful to make a to-do list ranked by priority, getting the most important tasks out of the way first, rather than procrastinating. Next, most people start the day off with coffee, but too much caffeine has the potential to be counterproductive if it causes overstimulation which can contribute to anxiety.
A favorable alternative, the LUVV Air WAKE provides caffeine in a refreshing citrus inhaler to get you ready for anything. It provides a combination of focus and stress relief, through an energy boost from vitamin B-12 and caffeine, balanced out by L-Theanine, promoting relaxation. The result is a calm yet attentive wakefulness lasting throughout the day.
Breaking out of the Routine
We mentioned meditation and yoga as a good way to begin the day, but this can also be great for breaking up the day as a way to refresh, clear the mind and start again with a new perspective. The LUVV Air ZEN is the perfect accompaniment to these activities, with lavender, chamomile, and other calming ingredients to provide relaxation any time of day.
Other good ways to stay motivated and active all day could be getting some quick exercise, making a healthy snack, or calling a friend or family member, taking advantage of the home environment while taking care of yourself. Another idea is to use a reward as a motivator after accomplishing each task on the to-do list, however small. You can also try switching up your workspace as much as you’re able every once in a while to not get bogged down; working outside for fresh air could be a refreshing and calming change.
Channeling FocusIt’s helpful to focus on one task at a time and follow through, as well as eliminating outside distractions and maintaining an organized and conducive workspace. This means sticking diligently to the task list, avoiding personal cell notifications and setting boundaries with family members, and having a familiar setup that makes you feel at peace. Even after doing everything mentioned in this article, a clear mind may still escape you. The LUVV Air RISE inhaler is here to help. It provides vitamin B-12, known for its capability in helping the body produce energy, and also is linked to memory. Also providing L-Theanine for relaxation, RISE helps improve mental clarity, also available in pod form. A refreshing blend of wild berry and mint extracts makes taking an important dose of vitamins and amino acids a treat, reviving the mind and body for a productive work day.
