These days, working at home can be a disorienting experience, especially to some who are used to doing their tasks in the office.
In line with this, Samsung shares a number of tips to boost productivity with the help of smartphones when working remotely.
Set an alarm and commit to the planned schedule
Working on tasks in the morning avoids distractions that you may encounter when family members are around. This will also help lessen the procrastination in the afternoon.
Make sure to follow the task list for the day. Use the notes application to track important deliverables and plan out when to start doing them.
Always stay updated and connected
Stay up-to-date by getting news from reliable sources. Install mobile applications to receive information about current events. Trends can also help in getting insights that can be used for work.
Use Bixby for daily routines. This smart virtual assistant adapts to users’ needs to simplify tasks such as setting alarms, managing schedules, looking for the newest trends, checking the weather, or getting news updates from reliable sources.
Join online classes
Apply to online courses or webinars (web seminars). Some offer free talks or lectures about passion and productivity. There are also seminars about creativity and inspiring a person’s inner genius.
No need to make a grand set up to listen to these motivational discussions. A smartphone with reliable Internet connectivity and earbuds will do.
Take up a hobby
Think about something you’ve always wanted to do. Explore creativity by doing activities such as photo and video shooting, gaming, digital art, or online business. These can be done with the help of a smartphone.
Squeeze in a workout session
You can still be physically healthy while at home by exercising. There are also free online classes that teach yoga, workout, and other activities to help people stay in shape. There are also tutorial videos on YouTube that are available for streaming. Don’t forget to find a room or space conducive to these activities.
Meanwhile, Galaxy smartphones have pre-installed ‘Samsung Health’ application to track users’ recent work-outs, food, water intake, weight, and sleep hours.
Take a break
You can still prioritize your well-being while working at home. If meditation is not possible, you can try alternative ways to relax – watch a film, or listening to your favorite songs.
Samsung Galaxy S20 Series boast a Hyperfast Infinity-O Display for an immersive viewing experience. Users can watch for longer hours with an all-day intelligent battery.
You can even pair it with the Galaxy Buds+ for a realistic sound. It delivers superior audio quality with rich treble and bass, perfect when streaming videos.
Connect with family and friends after work
Check on loved ones constantly after work. It only takes around five minutes to text or call them to know how they are. It also helps to disconnect from work to avoid burnout.
