It’s no secret that the country is facing a really difficult time right now, with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak and the UK being put under Lockdown.
Times like these can be scary and testing for a lot of us. This is why we think it’s important - now more than ever - to keep our giffgaff community spirit alive and see this through together.
No doubt it’s a stressful time for many. Having to manage new ways of working, looking after loved ones and even just navigating through daily life. But, the giffgaff community has always been a strong community, with members that are truly there to support one another and we could all probably do with an extra dose of that support, at this time.
Whether it’s actively encouraging one another to stay positive and occupied, understanding how to navigate the media better at this frantic time and managing entertaining our kids at home. We’re sure many of you can relate to at least one of these things.
So, we thought it would be a lovely idea for all of us to share our top tips and life hacks at this time.
We’ve been gathering various tips and life hacks from both members and staff, on ‘staying connected’, ‘staying positive’, ‘working from home’, ‘entertaining children at home’, ‘digesting the media’ and ‘defeating boredom’.
We’ve put these tips and hacks together in a series of blogs, to help you out during this time.
So, here are some top tips from working from home.
Firstly, a few to make sure you’re set up for success with working from home, from the off.
But also remember, staying active and taking breaks is just as important as the working part of working from home.
And there are also various things you can do to help you maintain focus, ensure you still stay well connected, compartmentalise your day to help feel like you’re getting the most from it, and make sure you are taking good care of yourself.
