As many of us are adjusting to our new “Work from Home” lifestyles, the week is feeling more and more like one long work day. The novelty of conference calls in our PJs is waning, and our makeshift work spaces are gathering clutter (and food wrappers) galore!
We feel you! And so with this edition of Skins at Home, we are going to guide you through a mood-lifting, focus-boosting workspace revamp. Never shall your background of your zoom calls be dull again - lets give your co-workers something to talk about...
It may sound obvious, but if you are struggling to focus, find a new spot in your home and start fresh. If possible, good natural lighting near a window is key. Lighting should be soft and ideally coming from in front of you.
