With Corona 19, telecommuting is spreading around the world. Inevitably, new customs are emerging as the space where we eat and sleep serves as a working space. You don’t have to go to work, so bringing your laptop to bed and working is one of them.
In fact, it is difficult to overcome the temptation of bed when working from home. Or it may be an unavoidable choice. This is the case when you need to secure your own time by avoiding the children lingering around all day, or when working in a cramped officetel.
In the case of the UK, where the third blockade was issued, a survey found that one-quarter of telecommuters worked in bed during the first lockdown. Catherine Quinn, chairman of the Chiropractic Association, said, “We found that up to 40% of those who worked at home because of the blockade had been working in bed from some point.
There is no reason to be disgraced as a lazy for not getting out of bed. Writers Samuel Johnson, Edith Wharton, Marcel Proust, and William Wordsworth showed outstanding creativity and productivity while working in bed.
Although it cannot be recommended, efficiency is also required when using the bedroom for business purposes depending on the need or choice. In the online edition of the British daily’Guardian’, we introduced tips for productively using’bed work’. The bottom line is that, wherever you are, creating a boundary between work and rest is beneficial to your health.
♦︎Improving the working environment
It’s not a good idea to keep clutter in your bedroom as it’s a space for sleeping. If you still have to work in bed, you need to provide a lap desk or computer stand to avoid straining your neck. Such a stand is for business purposes only and never puts drinks or snacks on it. You should also pay special attention to your back health. Use a pillow or lean against a headboard to support your lower back while sitting in bed.
It is convenient to have a basket next to the bed to use like a desk drawer. It is used to store office supplies such as chargers, pens, and notes, but the reason for choosing a basket is because of the advantage of’mobile’. When it’s time to sleep, the work basket is removed from the room to separate the boundaries between work and rest.
Speaking of the dangers of bedtime, there is the possibility of long-term back pain, and you can accidentally fall asleep. It is good to change your posture as often as possible. Make active routines, such as standing and answering business calls or walking outside for about 20 minutes during lunch time to change and stimulate the body.
As usual, you need to prepare your mindset. Dress up before going to work to bed. As the bedroom doubles as an office, clean maintenance is also required. Do not place books and clothes around.
