Many Jakartans are now encouraged to do the social distancing or home quarantine amidst the Coronavirus outbreak in the city. Though it is something uncommon for most of us, don’t worry! There are so many ways for us to still be productive and live our daily life as usual even at home. Here are the things you can do during social distancing or home quarantine.
1. Work from home
This is something the government suggests and a good move as well to minimize the virus’ spread. Then how to stay productive during your work-from-home period? These are the things you can do:
– Maintain your regular hours. If you usually working from 9 am – 5 pm, do the same at home.
– Keep doing the morning routine. Wake up in the morning according to your regular schedule, take a bath, and wear a clean and comfortable outfit.
– Set a distance to the people in your home. You can set a rule to them of what they can and cannot do during your “working hours”. This is to minimize the distraction and maintains your productivity.
– Breaks at lunch-time and while you think it’s time for you to do a simple stretching or breathe some air.
– Finish your work-from-home with your regular routine as well. Wash, dinner, and sleep.

Don’t forget to make sure to maintain your pets’ needs, especially food, through these online pet stores in Jakarta. Those stores are selling attractive and exciting toys for your pets as well.
7. Get proper sleep
It is the right time for you to catch some sleep. With less activity outside, you will have more time to sleep, at least take the 8-hours sleep a day. You can also take a much-needed nap during your work-from-home break with less guilt.
