No one can say that they have not been affected by the multiple levels of lockdowns, curfews, and lack of access to family, friends, or even work! We have all experienced that dip in motivation and most of us are pining for a resemblance of a normal life. As such, we at Sequ-Door understand the need to find ways to keep ourselves focused and moving forward. 


Let’s take a look at a few ideas in which you can improve your mood at home and stay on track during these trying times.


Declutter and re-organise your home


Since you are here for the long-haul, you may as well focus on your home space. Think about those projects you have put off, like tackling that one particularly messy cupboard or cleaning out your garage. These much-needed areas of attention give you an opportunity to clear your mind as well as your home. Since you’ve been held up there for this long, you may have also noticed a few security breaches that need tending to…


Take a look at some of our options to rectify that:


Take the time to develop new skills


Ever thought about picking up a new hobby or developing your skills more? Of course, you have, and now is the best time to do it. We always find ourselves making excuses against why we never have the time or energy to invest in our interests. But now you have relatively more time to do it than you’ll ever have again! Seize the opportunity and create something wholesome out of a dire situation. 


Stick to your routine


It’s vital for your mental wellbeing that you keep to a schedule. Lockdown is no excuse for breaking your routine. Even though you might not be able to accomplish any of your usual goals, there is no reason for you not to reorganise and restructure your daily tasks. Rather than waking up early to get ready for work, wake up early anyway, and create an exercise routine to stay both physically and mentally fit. Don’t become complacent, keep the flow going. You’ll thank yourself in the long run.


Create and maintain a professional workplace  


Working from home is an adjustment even in regular circumstances, that’s why it’s important to create a space where you can separate your personal and professional to avoid the pitfalls of combining both of them. If this means you have to get yourself a desk and an office chair then all the better! Your posture will surely thank you for it. Creating a mockup-office zone that keeps you focused on your professional goals, maintains a semblance of normality, and motivates you to work is essential to beating the lockdown blues. 


Focus on the positives!


Yes, we know it sounds like a cliche, but it’s entirely true! Perhaps it’s best to stay away from the news for a little while, keep your phone switched off, and take in your immediate environment? Even when you do end up looking back at your phone for the latest updates, try to focus your attention on stories that uplift and motivate you, rather than those that make you want to lock all your security doors and throw away the key! The safety of your home and family is ensured, especially when you have one of our doors.


We at Sequ-Door are keeping our fingers crossed for no more surprise lockdown extensions and are confident that when things go back to normal, you’ll be ready to focus on your goals and aspirations once more.
