- Maintain work-life
Upholding good work-life balance and a dedicated working desk/ place in your house are two important aspects in winning work from home activity. Scheduling your work hours and tasks can help you finish tasks in decided time and have personal space too.

- Take breaks
Remote workers at home often forget to take breaks in their work. Break doesn’t only mean to pick-up your phone and have a quick chat with friends or listed to your favourite music at the desk itself. Here, break means physically. Get up and walk a little in your house or go prepare juice for yourself. This will make you walk a little and do a little physical activity.
Taking short break after every 90 minutes is mandatory in such period i.e. quarantine!
- Eat healthy. Avoid junk
